So basically Donalds imposing another tax on American citizens... yeah?
What other options would you propose since you sat idly by for the last 20 years as our borders remained unsecured?



I have no idea, to be honest... But I doubt Trump does either.

This whole tariff war is pretty ingenious though, I'll give him that.

How do you raise taxes without the anti-tax crowd not opposing it, but instead actually supporting it?

Hook, line and sinker... lol.

5% isn't close to the disparity on import taxation between America and Mexico. But it's a good start.

Our government screwed us with NAFTA. I watched 3/4 of my company leave. Screw them and Mexico. End it, no need for tariffs, in the mean time, take the money.

Yeah, guavas might be a few cents extra at the store.

Seems like a small price to pay considering what illegal immigration costs us in terms of lives and treasure every year.

Now now, people will need to complain about how we're being mean to Mexico now.

Never mind that the average US citizen is being screwed over, killed, taxed and terrorized by illegals, they are more important to the evil leftists than regular Americans.

If you had stopped there your post would have at least been intellectually honest.

Will Mexico retaliate and invoke tariffs on American products shipped to Mexico. Do you realize how much business American corps do in Mexico?

Dunno... will their tariffs cost us more than $260 billion a year?

Because that's what illegals are currently costing us.

Do you have a better idea that Democrats would introduce?

I'd love to hear it!

Mexico might unfriend us on Facebook, or say something mean.

Like I told another user, What would you have done and more importantly, you only here because of your dislike of Trump.

However, "what ifs" and "Do you realize" have been drumming for YEARS, like China, a tougher stance and resolve is needed that didn't happen with quite literally the last 4 Presidencies.

It will hinder it.

Which is where we are politically... walls will work but that's not "moral" (LOL), introducing any legislation to fix it won't work since the Democrats are busy BUSY busy changing political demographics to their favor at the expense of the American citizen and Trump, despite the screamings of the left, isn't actually a dictator...

Have a better idea?

SoOo...

The US/Mexican Spider Piñata War?

We could respond by deporting liberals to south of the border so they could take care of them.

A win/win!!!
