If the mexican govt does cancel it is going to get ugly and dirty fast.

I can see a blanket 35% tariff hitting the mexican exports. This would hurt a lot of people, but we need to keep in mind that this needs to happen and will sooner or later.


Since the Trump Wall and related issues are now on the front burner, I see that $25 BILLION dollars is sent from America to Mexico by those (legals?) who have relatives and friends in that country.

That's a big reason why Mexican President Nieto doesn't want to stem the tide of his citizens coming to the USA. They generate more $$$ for the Mexican economy living/working here, than they would living/working in Mexico.

BTW.. The MEXICAN shopping/eating section of my Chicago suburb was eerily quiet today.

So your willingly posting B.S.? I don't follow the reasoning.


I am not posting BS because there is nothing stating that it is BS.

Thanks for enlightening me! I Googled Trevor Noah, and the first answer was that he's a South African Comedian. That's when I understood why most of the Trevor quotes you posted weren't accurate.

a few things i dont agree with him so far is the fcc pick who is an isp and telecom lobbyist wetdream to end net neutrality.


the great wall is not the most effective way to stop illegals and the most costly. it could be his obamacare.

pence


picking lots of insiders but that doesnt necessary always has to be a bad thing. sometimes you need insiders to take down the insiders, but to early to tell which way that will end.

so far I'm impressed by how he is going full force despite not agreeing with him on everything. im still willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

lets see 2 yr down the road, if he gets everything done by next month maybe he can bring down the church of sciencetokogy and remove their tax exempt status to pay for earths wall against the other illegal aliens.

Me, I'm claiming B.S. It's speculative and 3rd hand information.

Ya know, I heard from a guy that Trump is a reptilian. Since there is no source to the contrary, we can assume it is true.

Nieto is doing his country a great disservice if he cancels. His approval rating is 12 percent right now, posturing up and trying to play tough guy isn't going to help him anyways. Interesting to watch how this will play out.
