Applauding it ?

I can't stop laughing.

Because as you clearly said.

It is absurd.

What's the "truth in this?"

I'm betting that not only did Trump or his people fake-leak this, they probably did it specifically to ignite a controversy that won't go anywhere. Quite possibly to distract from something else. I have a feeling that Trump will continue to say absurd s# and pull stupid stunts to keep everyone off balance.

It's even possible that they're trying to generate fatigue among the opposition. Keep people protesting until people start ignoring the protests and the protesters get tired of protesting.

You are correct.
If the Trump opponents push the story as evidence Trump being a warmongering nut, then it is possible that they leaked it.
Either way, it seems to be win for both teams with regard to a certain segment of their base.

It's not Trumps fault his critics are so easily triggered.

I agree. In terms of geopolitics though, I wonder if and how this purported statement will filter down to the Mexican people and what effect it will have? It seems to me that if this story takes off in Mexico, the Mexicans are not going to look fondly on their president acquiescing to Trump.

Good point.
It could have been leaked and then denied by the Mexican leader himself in order to boost his backing by his own population to stand up against Trump.

It seems his call with Australia didn't go so well either.


Instead, President Trump blasted Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over a refu­gee agreement and boasted about the magnitude of his electoral college win, according to senior U.S. officials briefed on the Saturday exchange. Then, 25 minutes into what was expected to be an hour-long call, Trump abruptly ended it.

At one point Trump informed Turnbull that he had spoken with four other world leaders that day — including Russian President Vladi­mir Putin — and that “This was the worst call by far.”


What would be the point of this leak if they are doing it on purpose?

lol that has to be a joke, no president talks like that! That would be threatening war with our closest neighbor in the first two weeks...

It has to be a joke...

I hope it's a joke.

Nah, that doesn't make sense for him to say it that way.

The Mexican people live in fear in their own Country.

If they manage to get something nice.

They are kidnapped or killed.

The regular folks would welcome us for Security.

The once proud nation, our neighbors to the South is in trouble.

It'd be about time. We always claim humanitarian related reasons for war these days, but we never go where it is the worst. We have done little more than sporadic bombing against ISIS, we won't take on North Korea, we turn our backs on most of Africa. It seems we use nice words to chase other agendas. If we truly want to fight for humanitarian reason, then we should start with our neighbors. The cartels leave behind mass graves too, AND they bring their crap over here.

Telling the United Nations to FO would be a good start! Talk about a PONZI scheme! So bad Bernie Madoff is jealous!

Oh look, a president WILLING to take care of a problem. The audacity!

a problem
other peoples problems...

isn't that the norm for presidents as of late? Isn't that the thing people are now sick of...we will fix your problems...

I would like a POTUS willing to stop taking care of other peoples problems for awhile tbh. The wall seems like a good idea, and perhaps a easier immigration policy towards the good hombres. Thats all that needs to happen (although the wall is just for show..mexican cartels use tunnels and motorbikes to smuggle things and people in..only peasants run across the desert.
