6 more years to make good on that one.

Please tell the truth. Trump requested money from US congress to build the wall. Which means US taxpayers will pay for it. Trump said he will send Mexico the invoice for the wall not US taxpayers.

The moratorium on not talking about trump got suddenly lifted

What exactly is this new deal - has anyone even read it —   Or all this pent up desire to post is gushing out now ?

I know bud , my comment was directed more at the MAGA crowd that are out in full force today since the “trump markets” are up . But look at Mexican peso - it is up today while dollar is down - so guess who won?  :) 
I know it is not as simple as that , but waiting to see if the rah rah crowd can explain it to us since they go into hiding whenever markets are down or trump is going through a bad news cycle .

What’s your thoughts on phone gate? Trump was suppose to talk to Mexican President in front of the press and the White House didn’t or couldn’t transfer the call.

I didn’t follow that exactly but remember when people here were jumping up and down on North Korea and wanted trump to get the nobel peace price ?

Well , let’s see how long this “high five “ moment lasts
We might see another Groundhog Day

Are they going to pay for the Wall like he promised while campaigning?

The economic benefits from the US/Mexico trade pact cover the full cost of the wall.  Thank you Mexico!

Mexico will definitely pay for the walls that are quickly closing in on Trump :)

Trump supporters still have no idea what actually was signed

They just want to claim a “deal” and high five so their brains can continue on the happy MAGA journey unfettered by reality — you know posting in 25 size font in purple is really therapeutic  :)

But no one can still explain why Mexico is so eager to jump on and sign this deal (Hint: it is good for them) . I will explain in detail  once any of these economic experts here write a few lines of original thought rather than copying and pasting headlines .
