But the problem is that Trump is telling the truth.

I know it's an unpopular concept among liberals, but I prefer believing the truth rather than what the public wants to hear.

The leading source of remittances, money sent to Mexico from Mexicans living in the US, is from illegal drug trafficking. We all know drug trafficking doesn’t saw violent crime just look at the bloody cartel wars along the border.

Opinion? Fact?, or what you want to believe?

"When popular politicians or editorialists tout something a certain amount of people will believe it. Just look at comments here and elsewhere stating he was, ''only telling the truth...'':

That is how hate and fear rule a people.


From this, the truth makes hate and fear rule a people.

I see no denial that those popular politicians and editorialists are telling the truth. Just that it's a bad thing.

A brief summary:

Impacts of Illegal Immigration: Crime Summary

Don't bother impeaching the source. If you disagree, bring me something to work with.

Power of the pulpit should be tempered with prayer.
Power of the bully pulpit should be tempered with the same or at least reflection of how words can impact followers.

He was speaking in context of building a wall along the southern border.

What? You believe someone should lie from the bully pulpit rather than hurt someone's feelings?
