Trump should be held accountable for his lies, as should all elected officials.

I will leave this quote here as it seems appropriate, it was the subject of discussion a while ago.




“If everybody’s watching, you know, all of the backroom discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So you need both a public and a private position,” “You just have to sort of figure out how to — getting back to that word, ‘balance’ - how to balance the public and the private efforts that are necessary to be successful, politically, and that’s not just a comment about today.”

There is evidence of everything Trump has said or done while in office. These transcripts demonstrate that. He's in a prison of his own making, with bars constructed of lies and falsehoods.

If the deep state is working to counter Trump's blatant lies, I'm glad, and hope to see more from the brave people who are still in government.

Of course, with the wall, we knew Mexico wasn't going to pay for it. A shell-game-cum-Ponzi-scheme based on tariffs isn't the same as Mexico paying outright.

The Washington Post has obtained transcripts of the phone calls between the President and leaders of Mexico and Australia, the transcripts are said to confirm his call with the Australian President didn't go well and show Trump used the prospect of building a wall and Mexico paying for it as a political tool to rally the faithful.

At one point in his call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Trump even acknowledges that the wall is “the least important thing we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important.”


Trump spent much of his call with Pena Nieto just trying to convince him to stop talking about how Mexico would not pay for the wall. Trump even suggested he would fudge it in the end so that both sides could claim they didn't give in.
“We should both say, ‘We will work it out.’ It will work out in the formula somehow,” Trump said. “As opposed to you saying, ‘We will not pay,’ and me saying, ‘We will not pay.’ ”

Pena Nieto said Trump's promise had put a “very big mark on our back” and “is an issue related to the dignity of Mexico and goes to the national pride of my country.” Trump's response to all of that was basically: Okay, well let's just stop talking about it publicly.

Ever the showman.

But Hillary ... Fake News .... Obama ....




So hear you have Trump colluding with a foreign president to lie to the american public
AND your first response is that Hillary and Obama are fake news.

You really cannot separate the wheat from the chaff.

How did you feel when Trump admitted their are no tapes for him to blackmail Comey with.

Haven't you caught on yet? The ends justify the means. We will make up Russian interference to remove a president and we will blow smoke up Mexico's arse to get them to cooperate. As long as the wall goes up he isn't punking anybody except dumb democrats that like to play word games. Supporters don't care who pays for it.


NO nO nO

He is not punking the DEMOCRATS he is punking the american people Who do you think will pay for the WALL.

You will. Your neighbours will. New yorkers will rednecks will.

It will be your tax dollars not mexico's not Canada's.

Uh oh Trump compromised with the Mexican president. Fascist... Racist...

But that's how Trump makes deals according to his own admission.

" In fact, be forewarned – if you do close at your very first offer, you may have used persuasion, not negotiation, and later, the other side may have “remorse” about the deal."

I bet you didn't even know how he was going to get Mexico to pay for the wall, the plans of which were on his website since the beginning of his campaign.


If i remember correctly the plan is to tariff Mexican goods. Do you know who buys the tariff when an american pays a foreign product? THe purchaser does. That american who wants a sombrero pays the tax. When you import something (car, dvd, tv etc. YOU PAY the import taxes.

if i was president i can think of several ways to make mexico pay for wall with out their gov being able to say doodly about it.
1 all drug money seized heading back into mexico.
2seize assets of known cartels working in us veichiles properties aand the like sale then and put monies into wall
3 any money being sent to mexico by illegals to family in mexico by wire charge a 2 percent fee on it but no fee charged if you can show you are legal green card or other documents or a valid id we need to stop states from giving ids to illegals.

Shocking, isn't it?
I'm not sure what surprises me more, the fact that Trump made up a bunch of utter garbage about getting Mexico to pay for that idiotic wall, or the fact that all his orange minions bought it hook, line, and sinker.

Standard team Cheeto.....

You went full WaPo, you never go full WaPo.

On topic: Is the president and his administration's stance on illegal immigration bearing fruit do you think?

Maybe the wall gets built, maybe not, who knows? One thing is for sure though, illegal immigration will go down.



he took the british approach, make the country look as unappealing as possible and put an a hole in charge.

Fake news, OP.

There is nothing in the transcript to show that Trump admitted he never intended to get Mexico to pay for the wall.



Scraping the bottom of the barrel again. Find an excuse to call anything fake news, I think people are starting the realise they've been mugged off.

Time to start saving face.


It's cut and dried. At no point in the transcript does Trump say what the OP claims.
Hence fake news.

Provide the section of the transcript where your President agrees that Mexico are not paying for the wall ... that will prove me wrong if you can provide it...

Not much talk here about their phone calls.

It should bother people that our president didn't even have basic knowledge about the issue he was supposedly negotiating. Regarding the Austrailia call. Turnbull even explained it to him so his misconceptions could be dispelled, but Trump wasn't able to comprehend.

Or dress up as a vulture and hang glide over, drop the drugs and go back home...if they don't pay, go over again and drop a Bermb!


Close...A slightly modified off the shelf UAV can drop a profitable package into the back of a moving pick-up truck along the border and return to station in Mexico pretty easily..
Hell a few years ago US Coast guard intercepted an unmanned-submarine full of drugs.

I do think our money and attention is better spent addressing demand, not supply.
Where there is a will (and billions of dollars to be made) there is a way.
We need to address opioid addiction first.



According to US Foreign Military Studies Office data, 80% of drugs smuggled into the US in 2012 came via maritime routes
— and 30% of the drugs that came to the US by sea were carried on narco subs




I guess what I am saying is that a Wall is a dumb idea to start with.

Rest assured, it does bother me that our president lacks basic knowledge of the issues at hand. But it doesn't surprise me in the least. In fact, I've become desensitized to it. He seems to lack a fundamental understanding of just about everything one would hope a president possesses: history; current events; civics (i.e., how our government works--hint, POTUS, it's not like your businesses); economics; the list goes on. Not only does he lack those things, he doesn't even seem capable of faking it--certainly not in a remotely articulate, comprehensible manner.

Rather than leading, he's much more comfortable at campaign rallies, where he can bask in the warm, orange glow of his cheering minions.

What I think it does indicate is that Nevertrumpers and TheResistence have their dirty little hands in everything.


Are you sure you want to deflect/defend trump by moving the debate to hand size?

???
Where does the OP say that Trump "agrees that Mexico are not paying for the wall"???

What TRUMP says (not the OP) is that the Wall issue is:
the least important thing we are talking about

but politically this might be the most important

I am going to get killed on this thing

“You cannot say that to the press. The press is going to go with that, and I cannot live with that.”

Okay, Enrique, that is fine and I think it is fair. I do not bring up the wall but when the press brings up the wall, I will say, “let us see how it is going – let us see how it is working out with Mexico.” Because from an economic issue, it is the least important thing we were talking about, but psychologically, it means something so let us just say “we will work it out.”

The only thing I will ask you though is on the wall, you and I both have a political problem. My people stand up and say, “Mexico will pay for the wall”

So..."THE WALL"....
TRUMP describes it as..
"least important"
"Politically most important"
"Getting killed" ..in the press
"Econonomically..Least Important"
"Psychologically...Most important"

And asks The President of Mexico...to stop SAYING to the press he will not pay for the wall..and to just say "We will work it out"...

Undoubtedly the President was very honest in explaining the Wall was useful for political/psychological purposes ..but otherwise unimportant.

Actually he never said they are no paying for it. He just said don't talk about not paying for it. I know leftists like to revise history but people can read. Also no one cares where the money is coming from and the wall is just a plus. The fact that he killed off Obama's globalists redistributing of wealth international treaty like TPP and Paris Agreement is enough for Trump supporters to vote for him again. It proves he is not a traitor like the Globalists Democrat Party.
