Vicente Fox was the president of Mexico for six years, starting in 2000.

比森特·福克斯(Vicente Fox)从2000年开始曾经担任墨西哥总统达六年之久。

He says Donald Trump should not insult Mexicans during his campaign for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.

他说,川普在共和党总统候选人提名竞选中不应该侮辱墨西哥人。

Trump says he will build a wall between the United States and Mexico. And he says he will get Mexico to pay for it if he becomes president.

川普说他要在美国和墨西哥之间建一堵墙。他还说,如果他成为总统,他要让墨西哥为这道墙买单。

People think the cost of the wall could be greater than $1 billion.

人们认为修建这堵墙的费用可以超过10亿美元。

Trump also says he plans to deport Mexicans who are not in the U.S. legally. He also wants to deport children born to undocumented immigrants in the U.S.

川普还说,他计划驱逐非法居留美国的墨西哥人。他还想驱逐非法移民在美国出生的孩子。

In response to Trump’s claims, Fox recently told Fusion TV: “I’m not going to pay for that [expletive] wall.” An expletive is a curse or swear word.

为了回应川普的说法,福克斯最近对 Fusion TV表示,“我不会为这堵[脏话]墙买单。”

Fox says he is surprised Trump won the votes of 46 percent of the Hispanics who voted in the recent Nevada caucus.

福克斯表示,他很惊讶川普最近在内华达州党团会议上赢得了西班牙裔46%的选票。

Felipe Calderon followed Fox as Mexico’s president. They both say they are concerned about the anti-Mexican sentiment Trump is stirring up.

菲利普·卡尔德隆(Felipe Calderon)在福克斯之后担任墨西哥总统。他们都关注特朗普挑起的反墨西哥情绪。

Calderon told The Washington Post the wall would be “useless” and said “we won’t pay a cent for that stupid wall.”

卡尔德隆对华盛顿邮报表示,“这堵墙不会有任何作用,我们不会为这样一堵愚蠢的墙出一分钱!”

Calderon also noted that Trump is ignoring recent statistics from the Pew Research Center that show more Mexicans are returning home than entering the United States in the five years ending in 2014.

卡尔德隆还指出,川普无视最近皮尤研究中心最新的统计数据,该数据表明,截至2014年的这5年,更多墨西哥人回国而不是进入美国。

Calderon says the fact that Trump is ignoring those statistics shows that he is “an ignorant man.”

卡尔德隆表示,川普无视这些数据表明他“是个无知的人”。

Trump responded to Fox’s comments, using Twitter to say that the former president should apologize for using bad language.

川普在Twitter上回应了福克斯的言论,他说,福克斯应该为说脏话道歉。

Fox says he will not apologize.

福克斯表示他不会道歉。

“He’s the one who should apologize,” Fox says.

他说,“川普才应该道歉。”
