President is digging in his heels about the wall. You know the one I mean: The one that’s going to run along the entire southern border of the United States…the one President Trump says Mexico will pay for..the one liberals and the mainstream media ridicule him for on a daily basis.
In fact, thanks to the new US, Canada, and Mexico trade agreement signed this year, the President has a new reason to brag about the inevitable construction of the much-needed security feature for our nation.

“Trump finalized the USMCA in early October after nearly two years of negotiations between all the parties. The president has railed against the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for years and promised during the negotiations that the border wall would be funded through it.”
Liberal politicians are up in arms about what they say is NEVER going to happen, demonstrating their lack of understanding about how deals work in the real world. Yet their hypocrisy is showing: all you have to do is go back less than a year to see their sentiments about the wall. Amnesia…
“In February of this year, 44 Democrats, including Senator Schumer voted for a bill that had $25 billion for a wall. .... Democrats want Trump to lose more than they want the country to win.”
And now they are pulling out all the stops to destroy any chance of the wall getting public support
“Pelosi mocks Trump claim on Mexico paying for wall: ‘The Oval Office is an evidence-free zone’”
"I often stated, 'One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.' This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!"
Yet, in spit of the tantrums going on all across the left side of the aisle, the President is moving forward with his plans. White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders:
“President Trump and Mexican President López Obrador spoke yesterday about the positive relations between our two countries.
“They discussed the need to address illegal migration from Central America to the United States by addressing the drivers of migration, such as insecurity and economic stagnation.”
And I am willing to wager that our President is quietly (or, in some cases, NOT so quietly) going about his business, doing what has to be done to secure the safety of the American people.
I love that he isn’t intimidated by the bullying of the left, and is willing to ‘suffer the slings and arrows’ just so we don’t have to…That’s a true leader!
