“There is no turning back, Trump, your offenses towards Mexicans, Muslims and more, have led you to the pit where you are today. Goodbye, Trump!" former Mexican President Vicente Fox tweeted.

"Now you should quit out of dignity for yourself, get back to your ‘business,’ ” Fox added.

Fox reiterated his criticism of the Republican presidential nominee during a CNN interview Wednesday.

"He is not welcome in Mexico," he said. "President [Enrique] Peña [Nieto] is taking an enormous political risk. How can you trust a guy like this?"

Former Mexican first lady Margarita Zavala de Calderón was no more receptive to Trump's visit.

“Mr. Trump, although [he has been] invited, know that [he is] not welcome,” she tweeted late Tuesday. "The Mexicans have dignity and repudiate his speech of hate.”

Former Mexican President Felipe Calderón, Zavala’s husband, retweeted his wife's rejection of Trump.

Zavala has voiced interest in seeking the presidency in 2018, Politico reported Wednesday. She previously served in the Mexican Congress during the 1990s.

Mexican Senate President Roberto Gil Zuarth also gave a frosty reception.

“Invite to Donald Trump [legitimizes his] proposal of demagoguery and hate,” he tweeted. "We are threatened with war and walls, but we open [Mexico’s] National Palace.”

Trump and Nieto both said late Tuesday they would privately meet in Mexico City.

It will take place before Trump gives a major speech on immigration in Phoenix, Ariz., late Wednesday.

Trump and Nieto have had an at-times strained relationship, with the Mexican president comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini in June.

Trump has repeatedly angered Mexican leadership by vowing to build a wall along its border with the U.S. He has frequently insisted that Mexico will pay for the structure.
