When they were asked, the White House couldn't answer how new tariffs on Mexico would stop migrants from crossing the Southern border.
Yesterday Trump “threatened to close the U.S. border with Mexico next week, or at least large sections of the frontier, if Mexico ‘doesn’t immediately stop all illegal immigration coming into the United States’ from the region.”
The Post said that the president has been experiencing “mounting frustration with a large caravan of migrants from Honduras that has been making its way toward the United States.” He said he may take military action to stop immigrants from crossing the southern border into the U.S. if Mexico does not take action to stop the “onslaught.”
It's bad enough that Trump is pushing an inhumane immigration policy that the vast majority of Americans don't support. Worse, he's doing it at the expense of our environment.
Once again, the realities of governing a country and making sound policy have collided with the empty and ill-informed rhetoric Trump spewed on the campaign trail.
The best way to get under Donald Trump's very thin skin is to mock and ridicule him, and it appears Democrats have no problem doing just that.
That's right: Trump just lost a trade battle with Mexico – over tuna fish.
"Don't let the fake media tell you that I have changed my position on the WALL. It will get built and help stop drugs, human trafficking etc."
This is yet another huge loss for Trump, whose winless streak continues as the 100-day mark approaches.
Instead of allowing the young man to retrieve proof of his DACA protections and stay in the country, he was shipped back to Mexico.
"You aren't doing enough to stop them," Trump said. "I think your military is scared. Our military isn't, so I just might send them down to take care of it."
"I would say, Senor Trump 'Please please grow up. I mean, now you're President of a great nation...please grow up, be or try to be a real president."
"Oh my God. These are spoiled children playing with loaded guns...Now they're trying to walk it back...How are we going to survive years of this?"
It's clear the White House doesn't have a clue what they're doing – and it seems to span all levels of the administration.
Since Trump won the election last year, he and his supporters have slowly transitioned from saying that Mexico will pay or the wall to admitting that U.S. taxpayers will foot the bill.
In recent days, Trump has embarrassed himself both over China and Mexico, tweeting off-the-cuff ruminations about issues of critical importance
One of Trump's first acts as president will be showing his supporters that he was just playing them for suckers. Will they notice?
"There was only one reason I did this, and the reason was to confront the risk and a direct threat to the future of Mexico."
On Trump's signature issue, voters overwhelmingly trust Hillary Clinton over him.
When Trump finally had the opportunity to show that he could talk tough and fight for his policies outside the setting of a political rally, he folded like a cheap lawn chair.
