Donald Trump fired back at Mexican leaders who say there is no way their country will pay for the GOP front-runners' southern border wall.
"The wall just got 10 feet taller, believe me, Trump said. "It just got 10 feet taller."
Trump was responding specifically to former Mexican president Vincente Fox,
who said: "I'm not going to pay for that f****** wall," Fox told Fusion host Jorge Ramos. "He should pay for it. He's got the money."
"I saw him make that — I saw him make the statement. I saw him use the word that he used. I can only tell you, if I would have used even half of that word, it would have been national scandal. This guy used a filthy, disgusting word on television and he should be ashamed of himself and he should apologize, okay? "
Trump defended his plan to build a wall along the Mexican border, and said he could build it cheaper than his opponents.
"The wall is $10 billion to $12 billion, if I do it," he said.
"Mexico will pay for it, because they're not doing us any favors. They could stop all of this illegal trade if they wanted to, immediately. Mexico will pay for the wall. It's a small portion of the kind of money that we lose and the deficits that we have with Mexico. "
