Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo Joins Growing List Of World Leaders Fed Up With Trump

“Mr. Trump is stupid. He's very stupid," the mayor said.

Let's hope Donald Trump wasn't planning on taking his private jet to Europe anytime soon: The number of cities that would welcome him is shrinking by the day.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo became the latest head of a European capital to speak out against the presumptive U.S. Republican presidential nominee.

“Mr. Trump is stupid,” Hidalgo said this week while meeting with new London Mayor Sadiq Khan -- also not a Trump fan. "He’s very stupid. My God."

Earlier in the week, Khan called the former reality TV star -- who has vowed to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S. -- "ignorant." Trump said he would grant an exception to the ban to Khan, who is Muslim.

"This isn't just about me. It's about my friends, my family and everyone who comes from a background similar to mine, anywhere in the world," Khan responded. "I hope [Hillary Clinton] trounces him."

In addition to Paris, here are some of the many places around the world that Trump might want to avoid:

British Prime Minister David Cameron called Trump's anti-Muslim comments "divisive, stupid and wrong."

"I think if he came to visit our country, he'd unite us all against him," Cameron said.

Trump's xenophobia doesn't only apply to Muslims. He's also vowed to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border to keep undocumented immigrants out -- while forcing Mexico pay for it.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox called Trump a "hated gringo" and "ugly American," and said that "I'm not going to pay for that fucking wall."

Former Mexican President Felipe Calderón pointed out that Trump's policy isn't just offensive -- it also doesn't make sense.

"It's going to be completely useless," Calderón said. "The first loser of such a policy would be the United States."

Trump has insisted that undocumented immigrants from Mexico are "rapists," a charge that current Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto strongly condemned.

“Whoever insults or speaks badly of Mexico doesn’t know the country,” he told El Universal. “Whoever speaks badly of Mexicans doesn’t know Mexicans.”

Earlier this year, Trump said he'd consider halting oil sales from Saudi Arabia to the U.S. In response, Saudi Prince Turki al Faisal urged Americans to "make the right choice" and not vote for Trump. Turki, who is Muslim, also disavowed the presidential candidate's Islamophobic comments.

"For the life of me, I cannot believe that a country like the United States can afford to have someone as president who simply says, ‘These people are not going to be allowed to come to the United States,’" he said.

Sigmar Gabriel, Germany's economy minister and vice chancellor, said that Trump is "not only a threat to peace and social cohesion, but also to economic development."

German Chancellor Angela Merkel hasn't directly condemned Trump, but she's praised his 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa said that a Trump presidency "would be very bad for the U.S." and added that it might benefit Latin America by galvanizing progressive voters.

Editor's note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.
