Former Mexican president mocks Trump over golf holiday: 'If you're not happy with job, just leave'

Vicente Fox, Mexico’s former president, has questioned US President Donald Trump on his extended vacation, saying he should leave office if he is unhappy.

Mr Trump left the White House on Friday just before 4pm, flying to his New Jersey golf club resort to start his 17-day holiday.

It is his first long absence from Washington since being elected US president.

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

The former Mexican president is an outspoken critic of Mr Trump and one of his most strongly worded comments regarded Mexico paying for a wall along the US-Mexico border.

According to NBC News, Mr Trump has spent 58 days out of his first 195 at the properties he owns; 44 days at golf properties.
