Vicente Fox mocks Trump over vacation: 'If you're not happy with your job, just leave'

Former Mexican president Vicente Fox mocked President Trump in a tweet Friday for departing Washington on a 17-day vacation to his private golf club in New Jersey.

“[L]eaving on vacation, huh? What for? If you're not happy with your job, just leave,” Fox tweeted. “After all, it was never for you."

Trump left Washington on Friday for the trip, his first extended vacation since taking office. His departure follows the House and Senate adjourning for recess for the majority of August.

Trump’s “working vacation” at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. will also see his staff leave the West Wing while the White House undergoes significant renovations, including repairs to the heating, ventilation and air conditions (HVAC) system.

Despite this being Trump's first full vacation in office, NBC News reports he's spent 58 of his first 195 days in office at his various properties, including his Bedminster club and his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. 

Earlier Friday, Fox dropped an f-bomb on CNN while blasting Trump’s vow to make Mexico pay for a wall along the US-Mexico border.

"You can use my words. We will never pay for that f------ wall," he told CNN host Alisyn Camerota on "New Day."

"Who can think about a country paying for a wall that is going to be built in the neighbor's territory? Or why should Mexico pay for a wall? What's the reason?" he continued. "We don't need a wall."

Fox frequently uses his Twitter account to mock Trump. He recently compared Trump’s White House to an episode of “Survivor” with low ratings.
