“If the tariffs ramp-up all the way to 25 percent, as Trump has threatened, they would be the biggest tax increase since 1968.”

"Immigration discussions at the White House with representatives of Mexico have ended for the day. Progress is being made, but not nearly enough! Border arrests for May are at 133,000 because of Mexico & the Democrats in Congress refusing to budge on immigration reform. Further talks with Mexico will resume tomorrow with the understanding that, if no agreement is reached, Tariffs at the 5% level will begin on Monday, with monthly increases as per schedule. The higher the Tariffs go, the higher the number of companies that will move back to the USA!" - Trump

USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!

Mexico pays for the Tariffs just like Mexico pays for the Wall. Can you get any dumber? Well, actually, you'll find a way, I am sure.

"A reminder that Trump's demand was that Mexico stop illegal immigration from Central America. Adding 6k National Guard at Guatemala border could help; it almost definitely wouldn't halt flow altogether."

US state that imports the most from Mexico, as a percentage of state GDP: Michigan.

From China? Tennessee.

Mercedes Schlapp: "The president has presented Congress with several proposals when it came to solving this immigration and this border crisis."

Idea for new rally chant: “Present Various Proposals to Congress! Present Various Proposals to Congress!”

"



The thing we have normalized is that Trump increasingly acts like a dictator, imposing his whims on policy and the economy - often just to distract and change the subject. He is steering the boat alone and getting away with it with little pushback of any kind.

So wait, now that President Trump has reached a deal with Mexico to halt illegal immigration, does that make Mexico racist? Asking for a liberal friend so they know whether to be outraged or not.

"I don’t understand; why call off the tariffs if the tariffs were going to make us rich and convince firms to relocate in the US?" - Maddow

One of Trump’s signature moves as president is to act as both arsonist and firefighter, taking credit for resolving pseudo-crises that he in fact initiated.

You idiots don’t realize AMERICANS will be paying the tariffs .
Looks like it worked. Yet again Trump fucked with your pea brain.

Tell us again how stupid he is and yet was able to somehow steal the election from your stupid bitch in a pants suit, while your negro skinny faggot messiah had control of every aspect of government while Trump the moron had none.

You dumb fucking pathetic loser.

And the House has presented him with various proposals as well. Outside of the oversight, what seems to be the problem? It appears both are talking similar languages.

Interesting that Trump’s defenders are declaring this a major victory and him a genius negotiator. This movie played only recently. His threat to shut the border before backing down after securing a “victory.”
