Trump continues to lie about Mexico paying for the wall

He lies when he says he never said Mexico would pay for the wall with a check.  Why does he tell lies that are easily disproven?

He lies when he says his new trade deal would pay for the wall – the benefits would go to businesses.

 

 

Trump’s wall is a bad idea

He’s just pushing it to appease his base.  Many people who live on the border are opposed to it.  There will be suits over eminent domain when the government seizes property.

Trump’s endless lies about the border

He lied before he went to the border.

He lied when he visited the border.

He’s lying now after his trip to the border.

There is no crisis.

Drugs primarily come in through legal checkpoints – the wall wouldn’t stop that.

Everyone wants better border security – the wall is not the best method.

Trump considers declaring a phony national emergency to build his wall

 

Trump lies when he says a lot of terrorists are coming through the border with Mexico

Another Trump lie.  Sad!

You can’t negotiate with Trump

First, he signaled he would sign the continuing resolution passed by the Senate which did not include money for the wall.  Then, pressured by Fox News, he said he wouldn’t.

The Vice President floated the idea of compromising in $2.5 billion for the wall.  Then Trump said he wouldn’t do it.

Trump would have had a deal last year with $25 billion for the wall in exchange for taking care of the DACA immigrants and others but then he decided he wouldn’t do it.

Trump believes in winning.  That means someone will lose.  This deal will require a compromise where both sides get something and give something.  Trump does not appear to be willing to give anything.

Why should the Democrats give in?  The wall is a poor idea – there are better ways to protect the border.  Polls show the public does not want the wall.  Only the Trump cult, which is a minority, wants it.  The public blames the Republicans for the shutdown which is correct when both houses of Congress and the White House were controlled by them.  Trump doesn’t care about the people hurt by the shutdown.  He says, with no factual basis, that the employees are mostly Democrats.  Trump only cares about his cult members, not the whole country.

Federal workers should be used as political pawns by Trump.  Democrats will pass continuing resolutions and Trump should sign them.  McConnell is gutless and won’t bring up a bill similar to the one previously passed.

Trump’s non-stop lying doesn’t help either.

Trump defended Russia’s invasion of Afghanistan, too.  Which side is he on?
