Nothing wrong with saying that meeting would be a waste of time and cancelling it.

Lol, you think China or Russia is going to line up arms on the US's doorstep?
Remember the Cuban missile crisis?

Arms were not even mentioned in that post.

I'm sure they would be willing to take oil off their hands and seafood seems to be pretty big in their trade with China.

Good. Hope he sticks with it.

Hope more stand up to Trump and refuse to play his game.


Which country are you a citizen of? Why do you applaud a country that wants to screw you over?

What's a 'base' then? An oil base?

The Mexican government just exposed their corruption.

They stand to lose all the drug "remittances" very soon.

Looks like their NAFTA advantages will go bye-bye too.



I do feel sorry for the normal honest Citizens there.

My bad. Glossed over the base thing. Guess because I didn't see why anything like that would be needed to strike a trade on stuff.

Trump is the classical bully type. I have worked my career with his type. First, he will pick on someone he can easily beat - Mexico. Then he will be attracted with the other bullies of the world - Putin. Finally he'll get punched in the nose by someone no one expected. But for the time being he'll be taking Mexico's lunch money to build the wall. But when he gets punched in the nose, we will all suffer.

It would not surprise me in the least if the drug cartels actually ran the the Mexican Govt.
There may actually need to be some form of intervention to restore order there.

why not, we are doing that to them?? and to be frank, they haven't been bogged down with war for the last few decades.. heck, if you believe what it written by some, they could even shelter a good portion of their population from the nukes...

He's actually pretending like he's not going to pay for the wall. He knows, we all know that Mexico is going to pay for the wall.

He's up for reelection and has to look tough, he probably also has intense pressure on him from the cartels to not allow the wall.



Trump is an idiot....

And the cartels don't care at all about a wall...

They have UAV's can carry 300 pnds.

They can build a very nice air conditioned tunnel for a Million Dollars and pay for it with one shipment.

There is also that scientific nonsense called the Ocean..

Tump is an idiot...and he lied about Mexico paying for it...The American Taxpayer is paying for his campaign stunt.

AND BTW - While trump talks about a -60B trade deficit..We have a unique "Production Sharing" trade agreement with Mexico that puts the USA in the PLUS by 40 cents on the dollar in trade..

No, Mr. Trump, Mexico is not 'killing us on trade'

In 1979 Iranian feminists protested against wearing hajibs, in 2017 3rd wave feminists protest to wear hajibs.

I think you are letting your imagination run away with you. China or Russia are not going to declare war (because that is what it would be) on the USA because Mexico is butt hurt over a wall.

To be fair, the US seems to have its own shadow government.

Exactly what rumored shadow government might offer as a solution.

Out of curiosity, how accurate have your predictions been about Trump thus far? Im guessing they were in line with media predictions.

Dangerous times for sure.
There was only so long that people were going to sit back and get screwed over by the shrinking few. Dismantling the levels of corruption in the world is not going to be easy - or pretty.
