    The US has failed for 50 years to stop illegal immigration and Trump expects Mexico to do it in 5 months? Totally reasonable!

    REF: increasing tariffs

    Maybe, it's cheaper to tax than building a wall which Mexico was going to pay for? Not a bad idea!

    MAGA's just teasing.

    Everyone knows that he wouldn't actually affix a tariff as a prelude to finally closing the border.

    Here's Mexico:

    Farmer's in Heliodoro Castillo are holding soldiers and police hostage.

    The reason?

    El Presidente won't fulfill the election promise that he made to them in exchange for their votes.

    The promise?

    Supply them with free fertilizer for their crop.

    Their crop: poppies.

    A partition (dmz+fence) at Coatzacoalcos would be an interesting exercise.

    REF: “Trump threatens Mexico”:

    He is being very Cruel+Unfair to the traffickers! As a result; he'll lose all of his admirers from South America; even if the Drug-Exports to the USA continue to increase!
