Ok, and if that's the case, then you don't know the actual culture do you? Do you yet see how you erred in trying to claim you know the US because we are loud yet cannot speak our minds? If we don't speak our minds, you don't know us. If we are loud and we do, then you know us but were wrong about us being unable to speak our minds. It's really that simple. No amount of pretzeling yourself will make you right on both counts.
Sure they have. So basically, because they failed so spectacularly at diplomacy that they couldn't even talk to the guy they want to stop building missiles, they're doing better than trump. LMFAO.
This is what we call moving the goal posts. The wall is being built. Hundreds of miles of guard rail (meant to stop vehicles) has been replaced with 30 ft wall.
Border patrol has said there will be 400-500 miles of new wall and upgraded wall installed by the end of 2020 with the 2.5 billion that he diverted from the defense budget. So in spite of the dems doing everything they could to stop him from building the wall, from congressional budget tricks to lawsuits to stop him from building it, he's delivering. No amount of whining about lack of progress will shift the blame from democrats to trump.
No, I read all of it. None of it applies to any of the things I pointed out. The ACA bit, what does that have to do with diplomacy (definitely not international relation and didn't require tact). Same with car manufacturers. Same with funding the wall (which he's secured funding for, regardless). Remember when trump offered the dems amnesty for the wall funding and they said no? Remember when he offered them permanent DACA for the wall and they said no?
Admit it, you just had to goole what that was. LOL this is great.
Yes, it's called the USMCA. I see you've learned a lot about it
Not economically. Economically we're their customer. We're 20% of their entire economy.
It is theoretically possible for someone to be both loud and inane.
I was not the one who suggested that Americans speak their minds.
You are trying to use other failures to excuse Trump's failure? How does it make it any less of a failure?
Why not a simple 'We have built XXXX miles so far, with XXXX miles to go'?
Do a search on the net. It's like someone is trying to hide something, isn't it?
I'm calling BS because the simple proof isn't there.
You could compare it to the NAFTA agreement, but, now the USMCA has happened, apparently NAFTA has been classified! Hmm...
How can that be when China's total trade in 2018 was 19.5% of it's GDP.
And, in 2017, imports from the US represented only 8.38% of trade to China from all nations (The US's share was less than Korea and also less than from Japan).
