    Trumps tariffs are working. How do you explain that you morons?

    If the other countries are
    Paying the tariffs ( instead of the importers who would pass the expense plus a markup on to the consumer) what is the benefit for them to change where they produce?

    Comrade Trumpski is not brilliant at anything. He's a con-man nothing more.

    Its not brilliant.. We just have a weak president in México. Why should my country be responsible for all the people that are trying to get to yours?? Americans need to understand that migrants are not moving to the US to become beggars or get welfare. They ALL GET JOBS!! As unreal as it may seem to you, its the reality, they all get a job even without legal documents. See, most migrants are low skilled, and they could pick fruits of wash dishes in their country, but in America, they get paid 10 times better. How else do you explain that in 2017 over 450 billion US dolars were sent to latin american countries by migrants working in the US??? Have your feds go after every farm, home, restaurant, landscape company that gives migrants a reason to move to your country in ther first place.. Believe it or not, like it or not, theres a demand for illegal cheap labor coming from the US and its been like this for the last 100 years. Take some damned responsibility instead of just blaming everyone but yourselves.. The same with drugs! The demand for drugs, comes from the US. Drug cartels are are paid in US dolars and the war is fought with american weapons (theres more gun shops at the border with Mexico than in the rest of your gun crazed nation) but no, lets blame everyone else...... hypocrites!

      timber_beast- and they do. And the media just reports all his daily sickness. Why no more reports about the babies and children he mass abducted?? I saw 1 PBS segment a couple months ago, where they said the # was between 5 - 6,000 kids and they still have some that never got reunited, and they aren't even trying - they say it's too costly. Haven't heard another word about it.

    President Trump is brilliant, he definitely knows what he is doing. Why are democrats encouraging fraudulent asylum claims? Why are illegal aliens allowed into our country so recklessly?

      @Linda Minton lol the hypocrite blame game again.. We could say "you imported poverty when your cheap asses saw the opportunity to hire extra cheap labor". The demand comes from your country and your govt. let migrants walk in for decades. Or are we going to pretend that the worlds military superpower was powerless to stop low skilled, unarmed families at your border? Please, dont bullshit yourserves.. The only reason the border has all this attention lately, is because migrants started travelling in caravans. They copied africans migrating to Europe in larger groups, to gain international attention and protection from governtments that have no choice but to provide aid and the media.. Before, they used to travel in small groups to avoid been detected.

      @Linda Minton You need to get educated in facts - the US and England have for decades or centuries now, pillaged all the natural resources out of Central & South America and told the people they couldn't live as they always had, so they turned them all into extremely cheap labor, basically slaves and the young woman into prostitutes all in the name of your Christian God. What is going on now is corruption squeezing the necks of what's left of them and people are being killed and brutalized, so they are trying to make it to a better life with their children and you sit in your cozy F'ing home and pass judgement on them - how disgraceful. REAL criminals come into the US in planes with money, not the clothes on their backs with children. How dare you sit in judgement of them! You definitely are not Native American, so when did your family migrate to this country??? Learn something instead of spewing hatred like a Faux News Troll.

      @Tom Tbird Ofc there are farmers that are good people and hard workers all of their lives, no doubt. I was referring to the big corporate farms that are getting all the big bucks from Comrade as a bribe to keep supporting him. I have no doubt the Comrade is screwing over the small guys and they are definitely hurting. The fake trade/tariff war is nothing but a distraction from the Investigation and rightful Impeachment. Good luck to your friend!

      @Tom Tbird Your opinion is they want to work. You're telling me that they want to work and sweat their business over taking FREE 12 Billion dollars (and they've had many handouts) - Dude they won the lottery! So, yeah they prefer work over winning the lottery, sure. Just go back to Faux News already.

    We don't have a president, we have a spokesperson for US intelligence with their own agenda. The agenda and their entire covert op using Trump to do the dirty work now leaked in my profile. This is the biggest leak in history guaranteed.

    Hey, MAGAtards?
    So Traitor Trump (R - Criminal) comes up with an awful idea, then backpedals on that awful idea, and somehow Little Donny Fail-Fail is a Great Negotiator and you MAGAtards think he "won" something?
    *You MAGAtards are STILL the dumbest people on the planet.*

    I'm getting tired of Republican politicians constantly praising Trump for his "brilliant" actions when they are basically tricks and lies intended to deceive the American people. And who pays for the results? The American consumer. SOB.

      So, are you just as angry with the Democrats who insisted for over a year that there was no problem at the boarder? Or you just hate Trump so much you love people lying to you as long as it makes Trump look bad?
      Trump Derangement Syndrome is a very real thing.
      So are the issues it is designed to divert your attention away from.
      RUSSIA! BAD!
      China is ok they're nice.

    *This is basically a big nothing-burger that lets Traitor Trump crow about 'winning' without anything actually happening or changing.*
    Mexico will deploy its national guard throughout the country, prioritizing the southern border. *They....already do that. There's nothing there.*

    They will 'take decisive action' to deal with human trafficking. Ok....that's vague. *There's still nothing there.*
    They commit to work on closer cooperation with the US. *Still vague and unspecific.*
    They commit to authorize the entrance of migrants (to Mexico) who are sent back from the US at legal ports of entry to wait for their asylum claims. They already committed to doing that. Nothing new. They also offer to provide healthcare, jobs, etc 'according to its principles', which is enough qualifiers to mean nothing.
    They also commit to doing something different if the results aren't what are desired.
    *Little Donny Fail-Fail fails. Again.*
