BOOM! Trump tweets DEAL with MEXICO!!

And there it is. Just as he said, his tariff threats were so great that they forced Mexico to the negotiation table over illegal immigrants at the border.

Here’s what el Presidente Trumpo just tweeted:



Wow.

The devil of course, is in the details. I’d really like to see what he got as concessions from Mexico – and did he push them to pay for the wall or what??!?!

UPDATE!!!

So here are the details, you tell me what the devils are:

This will be a yuge win for Trump – IF it gets the crossings down. But if it does, won’t that take away the argument for constructing the border wall? Hmmm.

  1. I imagine the Mitt Romney’s, Bushes, Ana Navarro, and Bill Kristol are not celebrating this moment. I’m sure their heads exploded over this one.

  2. Can’t wait to hear Mexico is acting there is no one coming across the southern Mexico border…! No lineups there…wonder why.

  3. How about a really smart idea with these people. You see if they act before you accept anything…The Carrot Trump! Besides no o e is traveling right now cause it’s too hot to make the trip…

    1. I saw more than two dozen photos of thousands walking across Mexico to the US. You’re I’ll informed.

      1. Ill informed. The last couple batches were OTM. Other than Mexican. How about 1000 Africans. Mainly Muslims.

  4. So let’s review:

    1. Comey is in deep kim-chee now that the redacted portions are about to be released.
    2. Mueller is being exposed as the fraud that he is.
    3. Mehico folds (for now) to Trump.

    Grab your popcorn and scotch ladies and gents, because the IG’s report should be next week or the following week and that will start a poop storm which will be EPIC.

    1. @johngaltfla I heard an FBI official being interviewed today on the radio (didn’t catch his name) and he said there is a reason there is a difference between the “rank and file” FBI agents and the top management (like Comey): They ARE different. The “leaders” don’t come up through the ranks, they are purely political positions. One has NOTHING to do with the other.

    2. I predict a brazen media campaign of misdirection and reinterpretation. It will likely be on a level we have never seen before.

      1. Except no one watches the #FakeNewsMedia any longer except the mentally ill and car accident victims getting physical therapy.

    1. @tracy I really hope Trump knew that we (his base) were behind him – willing to back him so that the tariffs weren’t an empty threat. I also believe the majority of Americans (even those who don’t like Trump) are fed up with the border invasion and would have been willing to absorb the slight price increases the tariffs would have caused.

  5. Somewhat OT, just saw on local Fox news that GoPro is moving production for US from China to the US to insulate against tariffs. I’ve been wanting a GoPro to record my autocross runs..might soon be time to get one.

      1. @joyfulgiver So, maybe these migrants remaining in Mexico can be employed by gopro as per this deal with Trump, so it would still benefit America in the long run.

        1. I’m good with that. I also think that more American companies need to take their production facilities OUT of China. Why keep doing business there when your manufacturing prices keep going up, only to pass on those expenses to the consumer…it just doesn’t make sense.

          Gopro will save a lot of money in freight charges alone and they won’t have to worry about their products being held up in port because of the unions striking or whatever else.

  6. Mexico is becoming such a crap hole I almost wish they’d ask, and we’d accept them as a Protectorate. It would allow us to go in there and get rid of the drug lords, criminal politicians, and provide some protection/stability for Mexicans, which would benefit the US greatly.

    Ah to dream.

    1. I think we need to clean our own house before we talk about cleaning someone else’s. And the best place to start would be in our government. If all the crooks in government were arrested the biggest job market hires would be in law enforcement starting with jail guards.

  7. It appears to be a reasonable agreement. Long-term outcomes will likely depend on the funding and technical support and economic arrangements associated with the Comprehensive Development component. The U.S. will need to increase its investments in that area and the absence of details suggests that concrete details have not yet been worked out, only the broad approach has been agreed.

  8. He gets it – don’t be dumb.

    @AndrewPollackFL
    Americans have 2 options:

    1. Temporarily pay higher prices on Mexican goods until the border is fixed.

    2. Pay billions in taxes every year to fund housing, healthcare and schooling for illegal immigrants.

    Don’t be dumb. Choose number one. #FIXTHEBORDER

  9. If the deal is indeed fulfilled and verified, this deal would arguably make President Trump one of the greatest presidents ever.

    I applaud this president for his never ending desire to solve problems to benefit the American people. Nobel Peace Price ? This is a big f’in deal.

    A deal with China next?

    1. @central-valley I think the tariffs have worked with other countries but I have my doubts that they will work with China. The key difference is that other countries obey international trade laws. China doesn’t. They find ways to circumvent any attempt at targeting their goods. They divert to other go-between countries. I believe this had a lot to do with the USMCA and pushing Mexico and Canada to crack down on it.

  10. It won’t take away the purpose of the wall. Taking steps to fight illegal immigration and the drugs will help but it won’t stop it.

    This is all great, but I have a feeling that U.S. courts won’t allow Trump to keep our end of the agreement. Mexico may not put forth a great effort either and/or may butt heads with their courts too.

    We’ll see.

    1. Screw the courts, I’m so sick and tired of judicial tyranny. Thank God President Trump has thick skin and his desire is to put AMERICA first.

      1. @joyfulgiver I agree about the courts, but until they stop throwing roadblocks in front of everything Trump does we have to deal with it.

        I’m going to say something I never ever thought I would say. I think Trump is the best President I have ever seen as far as fighting to the death on getting things done. He does not stop. For being an old man he sure has a ton of vigor. We (the public) can disagree about his tactics and other things, but I have never ever seen a President work this hard at so many different things to accomplish.

  11. Stock market will boom and then 3 months later we probably won’t even know the difference between yesterday and then on border crossers.

  12. If they tighten their border and it helps, great; but when will US authorities go after the agitators who manufactured this crisis?

    The poor making the trek didn’t just wake up one day, “Hey, let’s walk to the US by the worst route possible.” They’re economic refugees being exploited by radical political organizations.

    Activists spent millions to create this astroturfed migration. They recruited the migrants. These human-traffickers then employed scores of “experts” to coach the victims on how to cheat to gain asylum.

    Our government has extraordinary financial powers to target groups, individuals, and banks (in US and abroad). Use them! Go after their assets. Go after their money. Close the organizations and go after their donors for conspiracy to commit immigration fraud and human trafficking. Nobody is serious about curbing illegal immigration until they get serious about using all the tools we have available to go after the instigators.

    1. The two Honduran organizers who just happen to work for Soros globalist project, have been arrested and detained per US request. Their HQ is in Chicago and if there is coordination, look for a lot of commielib preachers to be indicted soon.

    2. Great comment sir! You read my mind. I find it strange that nobody in the media is even curious on why and how this all started. Remember Glenn Beck and his chalkboards?

      I’m going to make Kavanaugh proud and have a beer this evening to celebrate the remote possibility that just maybe , one day, our border will be secured…..

      Either way, it’s nice to see a President actually try and solve problems and improve this country.

    3. @txgrunner Walk? Did you say walk? Judging by the look of the clothing and equipment the ‘migrants’ have, I’d say that they got rides for most of the way. Otherwise, I agree 100%.

  13. So who were the Republican senators that came out against Pres. Trump’s tariff stick? which ones were brought off? Isn’t this why he is president and they are not?

    It’s the wisdom of the masses, not the elites.

    1. You are exactly right. If I were Trump I would call a private meeting with everyone of them behind closed doors. Especially Mitch the Bich stating “Try and undercut my shit one more time and I’ll make sure you lose any public office you try and run for.” What a bunch of Morons. These clowns are elected official because they couldn’t hold a job doing anything else.

  14. The open border rinos wanted to stop this and wanted to continue America’s demise with endless open border and amnesty and drainage of our resources

  15. No safe third country agreement makes this “settlement” weak. Just a headline to cheer today and be outraged about nothing happening in a week or so, if that long.

  16. If this actually does yield genuine, substantial results, I will be pleasantly surprised.

  17. Ok go back in time a few years. Does that headline make sense… the world is a strange place.

  18. “Mexico will offer jobs, healthcare and education according to it’s principles.” Ah oh. I’ll believe it, when I see it.

    1. Exactly, Renny. So-called “promises” and “agreements” are meaningless without ACTION. When ALL illegal immigration is stopped and ALL illegals are removed, with NO exceptions, then and only then will we believe it.

  19. I applaud Trump’s efforts about doing something about this disaster at our southern border 100%, but he shouldn’t “indefinitely suspend” anything just yet. All options should be kept on the table !
    Mexico staying in this for the long haul is questionable in my opinion. Then there is the drug cartels who don’t give a #%&*$ about tariffs or politics. They will keep up the human trafficking and drug smuggling no matter what the US and Mexico agree on.

    1. @landscaper Keep in mind that “suspend” does not equal “cancel”. The tariffs are still on the table.

    2. @landscaper Yeah, everyone knows that our political landscape will change in a maximum of 5 more years. I shudder to think what the next administration will be.

  20. Do you really think you can trust the Mexican President after what’s been happening all this time??

  21. The agreement is worthless because it provides zero measurable requirements.

    Trump stated one requirement was to return to 20,000 crossings per month but this statement doesn’t even mention the number of crossings in any way.

    If this was a joint statement, I would understand the generality, but it is being called an agreement and an agreement this broad and lacking any specific requirements of either party is not of any use or value.

    I see why the left is saying Trump got nothing.

  22. Want to fix things???? Want Republicans to stand united with Trump?? Then get him reelected. Nothing will give GOP reps a stiffer back bone than a reelection. See our representatives live in D.C. So they buy into the SJW media hype. They were unsure his first term due to lies and Deep State manipulation, and of course general swampyness. Yes many become swampish and It is up to us to show them we want more of what PDJT is all about. We can call, email, write to them to let them know we can take some hardships at the grocery store. Hey our small hospitals and schools are struggling due to border overflow. We need to push back. Best way to show them is to vote. No lobbyists for us, just once every, two to four years. I know Trump got little respect after the first election but we have to keep going. Also can we stop the fighting?? We need EVERY vote for Trump. Do I agree with everything?? No but my gosh the dems are off the deep end. POTUS can you maybe speak to your fellow Republicans before tweeting tarrifs for everyone?? I know you are use to being the sole voice, but D.C. is a team sport. It is so less effective solo. I understand that being outsider and not politician is what many like but he needs his fellow Republicans. Trump can make just a adjustments. He needs a good go between to communicate and work with fellow GOP. I hope that the Trump team can work on communications issues especially when rolling out new policy, twitter not the best, IMO unless, heads up first. Again a re-election will do wonders to bring more GOP into the fold. I didn’t think Cruz was disrespectful in what he said. He has supported Trump on most issues. Look I know it is against Conservative cannon free trade blah blah blah. Tariffs are a good carrot stick tool. They can be over used and abused too so just some communication would help between teammates. Let POTUS know ok do your negotiations deal but we will be watching to make sure things don’t get bad. My family has seen many changes in jobs and pay in careers that used to be filled by someone with little or no college. Automotive mechanic, construction, survey crew. Cruz you were the one in the debates that said the politics would be different if bankers, lawyers, media types were pouring over the border. To both my senators and wonderful governor we must have our borders fixed. Policy, manpower, wall, and if I have to buy avocados from California so be it. Perhaps since again POTUS has used the tariffs as a tool once again successfully more will begin to see them differently. Let’s wait and see how this agreement goes. Let’s stop bashing each other and get ready to re-elect DJT.

  25. I imagine the Mitt Romney’s, Bushes, Ana Navarro, and Bill Kristol are not celebrating this moment. I’m sure their heads exploded over this one.

  26. Using tariffs as a negotiating tactic is aggressive and possibly effective, but I wish President Trump would push for free trade and no subsidies.

  27. Only one thing will ever take away from the arguments that we need a a border wall: completion of the border wall.

    Then the left will suddenly forget about the issue, and act like it was always there.

    1. Or they’ll tear it down, citing themselves as righteous for doing so and comparing it to the removal of the Berlin Wall.

  28. “But if it does, won’t that take away the argument for constructing the border wall? Hmmm.”

    Just because your neighbor swears his dog won’t poop in your yard anymore, doesn’t mean it’s time to take down the fence 😛 Fences/walls make great neighbors…

I believe this had a lot to do with the USMCA and pushing Mexico and Canada to crack down on it.

  30. I noticed Trump said the tariffs are indefinitely “suspended.” Meaning if Mexico reneges on it’s end of the deal the tariffs will then take effect. Good job President Trump.

    I’d bet George Soros just blew a gasket.

  31. Economic and foreign policy (not to mention national security) issues, all worked out via Twitter. Hmmm, I suppose this is a more efficient way of doing things in this brave new world. I can’t say that I’m opposed to it, it’s just a bit startling how rapidly POTUS’ tweets turned into policy. By older diplomatic standards, this is blindingly fast developments.

    1. Trump knows that the leftist MSM would find a way to make the deal look really bad, so he took care of his own message on Twitter. Not that the lefties won’t still try to make it look bad.

    2. @Bill in Tennessee I’ve noticed this about Trump for a while now. In the past we were told what was to come, but with Trump it’s the opposite…he does it and then announces. We don’t have to sit around and wait.

  32. It appears to be a reasonable agreement. Long-term outcomes will likely depend on the funding and technical support and economic arrangements associated with the Comprehensive Development component.

        1. Exactly why the left is hell bent on impeachment or prison, it’s their only hope to retain power. He is working for WE THE PEOPLE, not for the politicians and not for special interests. His accomplishments would be far greater if the left/opposition would learn to work WITH him and do the WILL OF THE PEOPLE.

          1. @joyfulgiver Not just the left either. The Republican Congress hasn’t put much of an effort in helping him with the border either.

  40. Ok go back in time a few years. Does that headline make sense… the world is a strange place.

  47. Do you really think you can trust the Mexican President after what’s been happening all this time??

  48. Looks like all the ranting and raving about tariffs was for nothing. Hopefully, it’s a good deal.

    1. I’m very glad Ted spoke up and criticized Trump about the tariffs. Tariffs would be no good. Ted takes absolutely no crap from anyone, and that includes Trump. As for the so-called “deal” or “promise,” it’s totally meaningless until we get ACTION, as in a complete end to ALL illegal immigration and removal of ALL illegals, with absolutely NO exceptions. THAT is the only acceptable deal. Plus, that’s what Trump “promised” in his campaign. WHERE is the wall? Just wait. Trump will make another “promise” about this in his next campaign. I’m not at all impressed with these “promises.”

      1. Cruz along with everyone else is more concerned about standing in Trump’s way than getting things done. It’s dumb not to understand the strategy.

        1. Ted does not support the tariffs because they will hurt HIS fellow Texans and the American people and the economy.

          1. @francis Sorry Francis, but Ted is showing he’s a politician when he stands against tariffs when they’ve been working all over the world because they could hurt his state. Turns out Ted was wrong this time. I imagine for you, saying “Ted was wrong” is like the Fonz saying “I was wrong”. Still like Ted as my Senator but he’s really been changing into a politician since the 2016 election which has been a great disappointment.

            1. What evidence can you point to suggesting that tariffs have been “working all over the world.” Public and private economists, central bankers (including those from the Federal Reserve), the IMF, etc., have stayed that the rise in tariffs has been cutting global growth and now constitute the biggest downside risk to macroeconomic growth.

            2. Paladin, fellow Texan here I called both Senators Cruz and Cornyn’ s office to let them know how I felt about tariffs, POTUS uses them as a big stick. Look the thing we need is for Mexico not to allow entire villages to trapes across their land and onto our door step and into our state’s. Yes border states take a hit via tarrifs and also with the over flow of fake asylum seekers. Even our awesome governor Abbott made noise about tarrifs, it is baked into conservative Republican psyche. We need to let our representatives know we are ok with a little pain, sacrifice. Make your voice known the busisness lobby sure does. Also I think for the most part my representatives support POTUS I am in north east Texas Gohmert is my congressional rep.

            3. NO, Ted is right, as usual. Tariffs not only hurt the economy of Texas. They also hurt our country as a whole. All we have is a so-called supposed “deal” with NO action and NO evidence that ALL illegal immigration has ended, as Trump “promised” in his campaign. There’s nothing to celebrate until it gets done.

          2. No Senator from Texas could support such tariffs without going against the interests of his or her constituents. Texas ranks first in imports from Mexico and 35.1% of all its imports come from Mexico (35.2% January through April 2019) according to the USA Trade Online database. Of course, by themselves, tariffs are a bad idea and are economically harmful to businesses and consumers.

      2. @francis I didn’t think Ted would like them……..he’s never liked tariffs. I don’t either. However, this time the threat worked. It also worked with Canada.

        1. There’s no proof that anything has worked yet. All we have so far is a so-called “deal” on paper. Words are cheap. ACTION is what counts. Has ALL illegal immigration stopped? Of course not. Until ALL illegal immigration ends and ALL illegals are removed, there’s no proof that it has worked.

  49. The open border rinos wanted to stop this and wanted to continue America’s demise with endless open border and amnesty and drainage of our resources

      1. She is soft on immigration. Or was at least. I loved her handing their collective butts to the UN commies, but as a gov, not so much.

        1. That would work, although my first choice of a running mate for Ted always has been Mike Lee.

        1. @Central Valley I like Haley and think she was a phenomenal Ambassador to the UN. But, as a governor, she caved to the dark side much too often, which is very concerning when considering her for POTUS.

        2. I am and then again not. She’s not perfect so she’s not possible. Of course Cruz and Lee aren’t perfect either but they are perfect in the right spots.

          I would love Haley/Crenshaw or Crenshaw/Haley. But I definitely think it’s time the right finds the “right” woman and sends the message that they support women in the highest office in the land. Just not crooks from the left.

  50. You’re right about the details but in the interim, this appears to be promising. I was among those who was originally crying about these tariffs but if it whipped Mexico into shape, then major kudos to Trump. If we find out later that America got very little out of this agreement, then I’ll go back to being frustrated that this blight from the south is still allowed to continue.

    Fundamentally, my view is unchanged: build the wall, remove the invaders/illegals, monitor the border effectively and consistently, and change the laws as necessary to keep the illegals out.

        1. Send parasite Momma and her offspring back where she came from. Allow them to stay and the taxpayers will be billed for the life of the kid.

  51. No safe third country agreement makes this “settlement” weak. Just a headline to cheer today and be outraged about nothing happening in a week or so, if that long.

  52. So who were the Republican senators that came out against Pres. Trump’s tariff stick? which ones were brought off? Isn’t this why he is president and they are not?

    It’s the wisdom of the masses, not the elites.

    1. You are exactly right. If I were Trump I would call a private meeting with everyone of them behind closed doors. Especially Mitch the Bich stating “Try and undercut my shit one more time and I’ll make sure you lose any public office you try and run for.” What a bunch of Morons. These clowns are elected official because they couldn’t hold a job doing anything else.

        1. Rand and Cruz are included in the ass chewing. You can’t be that stupid. You just can’t. Zero street smarts.

          1. Cruz is not stupid by any stretch. Rand, I have my doubts about. But, hats off to Trump, the art of the deal!

            1. Did Cruz come out a publicly denounce the Tariffs while Trump was trying to hold a gun to the Mexs head? Why yes he did. Cruz doesn’t get it. He’s an idiot. Zero street smarts.

              1. Being wrong on one issue hardly makes one an idiot. Hyperbolic nonsense. Not all smart, and Cruz is very smart, people are right, or what we see are right, on every issue.

          2. The fucked up Cruz fanatics are still alive and well here I see. You will all pay the price during the next civil war. Unless dash board Jesus Cruz saves you. I seriously doubt that happens. You people have no cognitive reasoning. Stay the F out of my Fox Hole.

          3. I already knew Sen. Cruz had been bought off. During the 2016 presidential primaries, Laura Ingraham asked him a question about H-1B Visas and he pretended to have no idea what she was talking about, a senator that suggested a substantial increase in a program that has been putting American high-tech workers out of work.

  53. Stock market will boom and then 3 months later we probably won’t even know the difference between yesterday and then on border crossers.

  54. If they tighten their border and it helps, great; but when will US authorities go after the agitators who manufactured this crisis?

    The poor making the trek didn’t just wake up one day, “Hey, let’s walk to the US by the worst route possible.” They’re economic refugees being exploited by radical political organizations.

    Activists spent millions to create this astroturfed migration. They recruited the migrants. These human-traffickers then employed scores of “experts” to coach the victims on how to cheat to gain asylum.

    Our government has extraordinary financial powers to target groups, individuals, and banks (in US and abroad). Use them! Go after their assets. Go after their money. Close the organizations and go after their donors for conspiracy to commit immigration fraud and human trafficking. Nobody is serious about curbing illegal immigration until they get serious about using all the tools we have available to go after the instigators.

    1. The two Honduran organizers who just happen to work for Soros globalist project, have been arrested and detained per US request. Their HQ is in Chicago and if there is coordination, look for a lot of commielib preachers to be indicted soon.

      1. There were hundreds, if not thousands, involved in this incredibly complex logistical operation.

        We could have choked off their money supply over a year ago before the first groups arrived in California — literally the furthest possible point in Mexico from Honduras. No congressional action was necessary and very little legal action was necessary.

        Kudos to Mexico for arresting those two, but that’s really symbolic as long as Soros can continue to funnel millions to the groups organizing the buses, way stations, and “legal advice” so immigrants know exactly what to say to gain entry under asylum.

        BTW, the real victims here are legitimate asylum seekers. All these fakers make it difficult for anyone to believe a real victim of persecution and put them at risk longer.

    2. Great comment sir! You read my mind. I find it strange that nobody in the media is even curious on why and how this all started. Remember Glenn Beck and his chalkboards?

      I’m going to make Kavanaugh proud and have a beer this evening to celebrate the remote possibility that just maybe , one day, our border will be secured…..

      Either way, it’s nice to see a President actually try and solve problems and improve this country.

    3. @txgrunner Walk? Did you say walk? Judging by the look of the clothing and equipment the ‘migrants’ have, I’d say that they got rides for most of the way. Otherwise, I agree 100%.

  55. So let’s review:

    1. Comey is in deep kim-chee now that the redacted portions are about to be released.
    2. Mueller is being exposed as the fraud that he is.
    3. Mehico folds (for now) to Trump.

    Grab your popcorn and scotch ladies and gents, because the IG’s report should be next week or the following week and that will start a poop storm which will be EPIC.

    1. @johngaltfla I heard an FBI official being interviewed today on the radio (didn’t catch his name) and he said there is a reason there is a difference between the “rank and file” FBI agents and the top management (like Comey): They ARE different. The “leaders” don’t come up through the ranks, they are purely political positions. One has NOTHING to do with the other.

    2. I predict a brazen media campaign of misdirection and reinterpretation. It will likely be on a level we have never seen before.

      1. Except no one watches the #FakeNewsMedia any longer except the mentally ill and car accident victims getting physical therapy.

  56. Can’t wait to hear Mexico is acting there is no one coming across the southern Mexico border…! No lineups there…wonder why.

  57. How about a really smart idea with these people. You see if they act before you accept anything…The Carrot Trump! Besides no o e is traveling right now cause it’s too hot to make the trip…

    1. I saw more than two dozen photos of thousands walking across Mexico to the US. You’re I’ll informed.

      1. Ill informed. The last couple batches were OTM. Other than Mexican. How about 1000 Africans. Mainly Muslims.

        1. @New West ryan-o and I are both in Texas, so maybe we’re closer to the battle line than you and see more of this on local and state news. There are photos, there are thousands crossing the border weekly, and the heat doesn’t stop them. Just more of them die after sneaking across the border. Those trekking across Mexico are being trafficked, bused, provided food and water, etc. You really do need to do some research and become more informed, and I suggest that with friendship and honesty.

          1. I know all this. What I’m saying is that there are no masses of them at the southern border of Mexico right now. They will not move or try to move large invaders during the summer. At our southern border, yes they receive a minimum of a thousand per day. I’m just saying the large caravans are not down at the southern Mexico border right now. My question is why wasn’t this done when they were there in masses…

          1. I saw pictures of our southern border but couldn’t find Mexico’s southern border. I’ll keep looking

    1. @tracy I really hope Trump knew that we (his base) were behind him – willing to back him so that the tariffs weren’t an empty threat. I also believe the majority of Americans (even those who don’t like Trump) are fed up with the border invasion and would have been willing to absorb the slight price increases the tariffs would have caused.

      1. I think so, NC, if they didn’t give in right away then the pain would be worse for them than for us and our more expensive Chipotle.

        1. Yes, absolutely. And Trump didn’t even mention encouraging people to stop vacationing there.

  58. Looks like all the ranting and raving about tariffs was for nothing. Hopefully, it’s a good deal.

    1. I’m very glad Ted spoke up and criticized Trump about the tariffs. Tariffs would be no good. Ted takes absolutely no crap from anyone, and that includes Trump. As for the so-called “deal” or “promise,” it’s totally meaningless until we get ACTION, as in a complete end to ALL illegal immigration and removal of ALL illegals, with absolutely NO exceptions. THAT is the only acceptable deal. Plus, that’s what Trump “promised” in his campaign. WHERE is the wall? Just wait. Trump will make another “promise” about this in his next campaign. I’m not at all impressed with these “promises.”

      1. @francis I didn’t think Ted would like them……..he’s never liked tariffs. I don’t either. However, this time the threat worked. It also worked with Canada.

        1. There’s no proof that anything has worked yet. All we have so far is a so-called “deal” on paper. Words are cheap. ACTION is what counts. Has ALL illegal immigration stopped? Of course not. Until ALL illegal immigration ends and ALL illegals are removed, there’s no proof that it has worked.

      2. Cruz along with everyone else is more concerned about standing in Trump’s way than getting things done. It’s dumb not to understand the strategy.

        1. Ted does not support the tariffs because they will hurt HIS fellow Texans and the American people and the economy.

        1. @Central Valley I like Haley and think she was a phenomenal Ambassador to the UN. But, as a governor, she caved to the dark side much too often, which is very concerning when considering her for POTUS.

      1. She is soft on immigration. Or was at least. I loved her handing their collective butts to the UN commies, but as a gov, not so much.

        1. That would work, although my first choice of a running mate for Ted always has been Mike Lee.

  59. You’re right about the details but in the interim, this appears to be promising. I was among those who was originally crying about these tariffs but if it whipped Mexico into shape, then major kudos to Trump. If we find out later that America got very little out of this agreement, then I’ll go back to being frustrated that this blight from the south is still allowed to continue.

    Fundamentally, my view is unchanged: build the wall, remove the invaders/illegals, monitor the border effectively and consistently, and change the laws as necessary to keep the illegals out.
