If there is one thing that burns me up about President Trump, it’s how he ramps up his followers and then walks away from the fight.
President Trump has to realize he can’t go around threatening and then letting individuals off the hook with no consequences. Giving Mexico a year to fix illegal immigration after threatening to shut down the border this week is a lose-lose scenario.
I know Sen. Mitch McConnell came out yesterday and talked about the economic disaster and many Trump supporters called him a traitor. Now it seems Trump listened to him and change his mind or something else happened to come to this conclusion.
I am very serious when I say this, I am tired of it. I understand the pressures that Pres. Trump is going through, being attacked by the Democratic Party and the opposition media and also let me include the never-Trumpers. But Pres. Trump says he is going to do so many things which ramps up a lot of his supporters behind him and then he just walks away.
Before this closing the southern border issue, it was the government shut down. We did not have to go through that based on how everything turned out with Pres. Trump signing legislation to reopen the government and then later to receive less than what was offered in December before the government shutdown was initiated.
President Donald Trump said Thursday he would delay closing the border with Mexico for a year, apparently backtracking on his earlier threat to seal off the southern border as early as this week.
Trump told reporters at the White House that he would give Mexico a year to halt the flow of illegal drugs coming into the United States. If the drugs don’t stop, he said, the U.S. will impose tariffs on Mexican autos. If that doesn’t work, Trump said, then the U.S. would close the U.S.-Mexican border.
“That will be a very powerful incentive,” he said.
Trump insisted he wasn’t bluffing.
“I will do it,” he said. “I don’t play games.”
Trump’s remarks are the latest signal that the administration is toning down its rhetoric after days of relentlessly attacking Mexico over illegal border crossings. [USA Today]
Another reason why I am angry at this change is that I hate seeing the Democrats and their following making jokes about how many times Trump does this.
