SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Former Mexico President Vicente Fox is reiterating his strong opposition to United States President Donald Trump’s push for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox said Tuesday while speaking at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City: “Walls divide. We must build bridges.”

Fox says historical border walls in China and Germany failed and showed they don’t work. Fox says the United States should be sure the border wall will work because Mexico will never pay for it, as Trump has demanded.

The president of Mexico from 2000-2006 has been a frequent critic of Trump, saying several times the wall is a bad idea.

A handful of protesters stood outside the lecture hall and held a sign that said they support Trump and his push for border security.
