Trump manufactures crisis with Mexico and then supposedly solves it
Our hero Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) called it all along she said it was just another Trump diversion and bluff when Trump threatened to raise tariffs on Mexico. The demon dictator had said he would impose tariffs by Monday, June 10th, but suddenly he claimed victory and backed off on Friday. “Auntie” Maxine did not seem surprised. “Spineless GOP Senators grew a backbone this week & finally stood up to their Dictator Trump on something: Mexico tariffs, also known as a TAX INCREASE on American consumers. Bet your bottom dollar; Trump will back off by the weekend. Just another bluff!” Congresswoman Waters said.
His GOP lapdogs were rightfully scared that this Trumpian house of cards economy would be rocked by the effect of another tax on consumers layered on top of their smoke and mirrors tax cuts for the one percenters. This would be especially harsh on food which is a non-discretionary spending item.
All this noise was just a thinly disguised racist play to his bigoted base and a somewhat successful divergence from Trumps worsening legal problems.
Only time will tell if things at the border calm down from all the Trump induced chaos and whether Mexico actually really agreed to do anything substantial
