Trump Tries to Bully Mexico



(Handsome) Mexican president and Trump (Ugly American)

Okay folks. First I should probably apologize explain why I'm still beating the Trump Drum.

The latest imbroglio is that our new president is hellbent on making an enemy out of our southern neighbor, Mexico. Yes, this is the same Trump who can't say anything negative about Russian Vladimir Putin but can insult our longtime allies.  

The latest Trump Crazy is him trying to bully Mexico into "paying for the wall."  A "wall" that we don't need because the Mexican immigration is a net minus.  That means there are more Mexicans leaving the United States NOW than are coming in.  And that is because of the improved Mexican middle class because of globalization.  

Hey folks, we're not losing jobs to Mexicans, we're losing manufacturing jobs to automation. The Mexicans are doing out landscaping jobs because Americans don't want to do them.  The Mexicans are picking our fruit and vegetables because Americans don't want to do that.  An irony here, my father was brought to southern Pennsylvania along with his eight brothers (two more brothers were born in Pennsylvania) as, yes, migrant farm labor from the hillbilly hills of western North Carolina to their uncle's farm in southern Chester County. 

Back to our childish, bullying, ignoramus president, Donald Trump. He's going to find out that he can't bully countries like he can fellow Republicans (witness House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader bending over and grabbing their ankles and showing their asses to their new leader just so they can cut taxes for the rich and destroy the social safety net of Medicare and Social Security) and CEO's.  

Folks, as each day goes forward I am so disheartened by the stupidity that Trump is displaying.  

Now he's going to make an enemy of one of our closest allies Mexico?  What is the matter with this man?  

Who is the grownup in this "battle"?  Obviously it is the (hottie) Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto.



Man oh man, what a doll.

  1. It is so ridiculous that he wants Mexico to pay for a wall. So it can keep Mexicans out... that is so insulting. It just gets worse and worse with each day. And Kellyanne Conway just keeps lying.

    1. Christina,
      Kellyanne Conway and that little girl voice of hers just lying away grates on me. I mute her whenever she comes on TV. Can't believe anything that comes out of her mouth. It is ridiculous making enemies of our neighbors and friends while coming up to Russia. Each day I am more and more convinced that Russia has something on Trump. He never criticizes Russia but is all too quick to criticize just about everyone else. This is the first time in my life I really fear for our country with this madman (and I'm not exaggerating) as president.

  2. His wall is going nowhere fast and economists are bringing it to his attention that Americans will pay more if a part made in Mexico is needed for a car made in the USA because the American will end up paying the tax. Plus the fact that this idea of the tax is to pay for the wall...that a simple drone can go over. Obviously he needs to start listening to his people before he opens his gob. The Mexicans are not at the root of all that is wrong with the USA

    1. Cheapchick,
      You're right that the wall is going nowhere. As much as the Republicans in Congress are toadying up to Trump to push their own agenda, I just can see them passing a tariff tax of authorizing funds to spend billions to build a totally unnecessary wall.
      Trump is making enemies of our friends and neighbors and cozying up to Russia. I am convinced that Russia has something on Trump. I am fearful for our country. We are less safe now.

  4. And his plan to pay for the wall, has the American consumer paying for the wall in the form of higher prices on goods from Mexico.
