<p>In a softball interview with former Mexican president Vicente Fox on Friday&rsquo;s NBC <em>Today</em>, the morning show hosts teed up the foreign leader to denounce President Trump&rsquo;s immigration and border security policies while ignoring a series of inflammatory statements from Fox.</p>

<p>At the top of the show, co-host Matt Lauer hyped: &ldquo;Showdown. President Trump and Mexico&#39;s president locked in a fiery spat over who will foot the bill for that border wall.&rdquo; He then teased: <strong>&ldquo;This morning we&#39;ll be joined by the former Mexican leader, who famously said this about the controversy.&rdquo;</strong> A soundbite followed of Fox&rsquo;s profanity-laced tirade against Trump during the 2016 campaign: <strong>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m not pay for that f***king [bleeped] wall.&rdquo;</strong></p>
