It wouldn't have been pretty. Even though there's a 50+ billion trade deficit with Mexico. They are our third biggest trading partner. And most of that trade is manufacturing going to Mexico.

It would have hurt many Americans.

Bull crap. It didn't happen. The Mexican government realized it could destroy their countries economy. Much of the exports going to mexico goes into cars and equipment sold back to the USA. we could start making all those cars and equipment here and Mexico would go back into the stone age again if they started taxing imports from the USA. It would force US automakers and farm equipment companies to build cars here again or go out of business.

Seems Trump has another notch on his holster...

From my view this has been his only true victory. So far.

But it's a big one. He campaigned on it. He worked on it for two years. Shut down the government over it. And in the end comes up with an idea that makes the main beef with the border, the wall, far less important.

If everything goes as planed if mexico does what they say they will do. We will have less people crossing that dessert than ever before.

All the stalemates and infighting the childish name calling from both sides is going to be in the history books. But so will this.

His ego and self aggrandizing aside it does make since that trump would be good at financing and trade. He's dealt with it his entire life. Grew up in the world of money.

China wont be as easy but I'm not counting trump out. I was saying wait and see on the china and mexico tariffs but after this I'm giving more points to trump, vs china.

“When you have the money, when you have the product, when you have the thing that everybody wants, you’re in a position to do very well with tariffs, and that’s where we are,” he added. “We’re the piggybank. The United States is the piggybank. It has all the money that others want to take from us, but they’re not taking it so easy anymore.”

And this morning the Democratic response is hilarious.

Schumer just had sarcasm.

Pelosi is accusing Trump of being a bully.

Mayor Pete says America is not full and his city needs another 30,000 people.

Puto O'Rourke says that Trump made the problem in the first place, stating that it is like the arsonist becoming the fireman and claiming it as a win.

Just... LOL

The direct cost to the US taxpayer of illegal immigrants is roughly $260 billion.

That doesn't count indirect costs... health care, etc.

Besides, seems like for now there will be no tariffs.

Bill maher said it was nothing but trump baking down from the tariffs.

People are so silly. Pride makes fools of us all. They should just admit that this was a good plan and move on.

But to be fair to o'Rourke The numbers HAVE increased under trump. Partly because of fear that the usa was going to shut the border down. So it was ether go now while they can or miss their chance. Then the gangs saw that and used it to their advantage.

All of this was already promised by Mexico and they didint deliver.

Mexico's southern border is 100% blocked off all year around by military.

They only let the carvans in if they were directly guided to the u.s.

They refugees are also ment to wait out their time for a trial in Mexico, not a failed catch and release plan the u.s. uses.

Mexico also refused to play ball.

Threatening them works as is why major drug armies live there.

Now we will see of they stick by their word a 2nd time?

Scary that American people have zero clue the danger of what's going on at the border and the amount of refugees flowing in.

Really naive

I think Mexico reneged and Trump called the bluff.

Now Mexico scrambles.

Trump had my vote in 2016, and he’ll have it again in 2020.

Ill bet Nancy is having a bad day after seeing this!

Shes likely having a few stiff drinks after this!

Which successful "strategy" made dumb Democrats angrier when it was first announced?

1. We'll rain down "Fire and Fury" on you, little Rocket Man!


2. We'll tariff you, and cut off your aid, Senior Obrador!
