(NEWSER) – As shocking as it may seem, Donald Trump didn't make a lot of fans in Mexico when he proposed building a "great, great wall" along our southern border on Mexico's dime to block all of its criminals and rapists from reaching the US.

"When Mexico sends its people ... they're sending people that have lots of problems," Trump said inannouncing his 2016 run on Tuesday. "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." Understandably, Mexican politicians aren't pleased. Trump has "a profound ignorance of the reality in Mexico and the migrant contribution" to the US, its foreign secretary said, per GlobalPost. "A politician that does not know reality does not have good prospects." Mexico's interior minister called Trump's comments "biased and absurd."
