Hello! you're dealing with the art of the deal man, not some puny obama-type. I've never had to negotiate much, but it seems to me they just revealed their hand.

I say put the screws to Mexico. I want to see a roundup of a lot of illegals and send them packing to Mexico. Start with the ones receiving social benefits. I'm tired of my tax dollars going to educate, housing, and provide food stamps to those that broke the law and that are not here legally.

Mexico is not in a position to threaten the United States. We have their entire economy on a short leash. They are making a huge mistake by taking on Trump.

Was looking at a world map the other day and noticed that skinny little stretch between Mexico and Central America where it runs about straight east and west and is about 150 miles wide. There must be a way to 'convince' Mexico to build the a border wall THERE, instead. Oh, we could pay for it by hiring them to build it. Every time they fail to stop an illegal , we do a little more 'convincing'.

Perhaps it's time for the U.S.A. to initiate some "regime change" in the hellhole countries they're coming from? Seems to be there's a reason they're claiming "political refugee" status.

Mexico could start by clearing the top of the train wagons. Then continue with the air conditioned buses the bring then here in. Confronting a guy with such enormous stones is not a good move. When will they ever learn...

In a moving ceremony in Portsmouth 300 heroes who survived the invasion of France in 1944 were guests of honour and a group stood and saluted the thousands who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting Hitler's Germany. Mr Trump, who was accompanied by First Lady Melania, sat next to the Queen and Prince Charles and they smiled and chatted surrounded by the leaders of all the Allied nations who took part in Operation Overlord - the codename for D-Day.

President Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on all Mexican imports until Mexico takes serious action to control its border with the U.S. shocked the Washington Beltway, Wall Street, and the Palacio Nacional in Mexico City. These centers of financial and political power, lulled by a U.S. Congress that has refused to act and activist federal judges who have stymied Trump’s border control efforts at every step, were jolted awake by Trump’s ultimatum. But they should not have been surprised. The president issued a similar threat back in April.

Let’s be clear about a few things regarding “carbon taxes”. First, the system of taxing carbon emissions, also known as “cap-n-trade”, has absolutely nothing to do with climate change. Second a “carbon tax” is the holy grail for the totalitarian globalist world view. The concept of a tax on carbon emissions was developed inside the same financial network of multinational monetary interests that control the current global trade system. Powerful financial interests directly connected to The World Bank (WB), International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Trade Organization (WTO), together with global banking interests connected to Wall Street and

His point basically was (without rehashing the whole thing) that every bit of everything we know or think we know--every news item, every little bit of information that fed this narrative the past two years or three now, that Trump colluded with Russia--came not from American intelligence, not from British intelligence. It didn’t come from FBI intelligence.
