So here’s what the other side is saying today about the deal with Mexico.
Maxine Waters tweeted hours before Trump made the agreement that he was going to cave to the Mexicans because the Republicans were pressuring him:
Spineless GOP Senators grew a backbone this week & finally stood up to their Dictator Trump on something: Mexico tariffs, also known as a TAX INCREASE on American consumers. Bet your bottom dollar, Trump will back off by the weekend. Just another bluff!— Maxine Waters (@RepMaxineWaters) June 7, 2019
She also said it would hurt Millennials:
If Trump's tariffs ever became real, it would hurt millennials who are already working hard for higher pay to purchase cars, groceries, invest in their own business, or pay down student loans. Most people aren't born w/ a silver spoon & a million dollar loan from dad. Back off 45— Maxine Waters (@RepMaxineWaters) June 7, 2019
Which is true because the price of avocado toast would skyrocket!!!
Anyway, after the announcement, she claimed that she was right, and that he caved in order to prevent the tariffs from going into place.
Now there’s this idiot also saying Mexico beat Trump:
FACT: The joint US-Mexico declaration, which is less than 500 words long, requires Mexico to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING it isn't already doing.— Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) June 8, 2019
It is not a "deal."
It is a fig leaf to cover up Trump's humiliating diplomatic defeat
But he’s just selling his newsletter lol!
What is particularly infuriating is how much “objective” media coverage repeats the Trump narrative without pointing out the basic fact that Mexico didn’t agree to do anything new.
It’s absolutely ridiculous.

Pathetic. If Trump did cave to Mexico, how come no one told CNN?
I’m sure they’ll catch up soon to the left-wing propaganda narrative mongering….
