Default This prediction from Maxine Waters is being thrown back in her face after deal with M

Lots of libs thought Trump's tariff threat was a joke and he would back down. Now that Mexico caved and gave in to our demands, many libs are wiping cake off their faces; including Max.

This prediction from Maxine Waters is being thrown back in her face after deal with Mexico

Quote:
"Bet your bottom dollar, Trump will back off by the weekend," she predicted. "Just another bluff!"

Just hours later, the president tweeted that he had reached an agreement with Mexico and he called off the threat of tariffs.

"Mexico will take unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border," read a statement from the state department.

Several Trump allies mocked Waters for her prediction that he would cave.

Uh, what are you talking about? Waters was 100% right. The deal announced with Mexico consisted entirely of items they had agreed to months ago. The whole thing was a Trump scam, but you idiots fell for it it hook, line and sinker.

Well that's the MSM spin....

Truth is Mexico blinked first because they didn't wanna pay the tariffs. This is one of the advantages of having an intelligent businessman in charge.

Good news is this isn't the most retarded thing Max has ever said.

How is it “spin” when DHS Secretary Nielsen testified before Congress in December describing agreements with Mexico on key points that Trump now claims were agreed to only under the threat of new tariffs?

You're absolutely right. Mexico just has bad timing as to when to agree to follow the terms. A little scare with tariffs seems to make them poop into action immediately.

A "bluff" in something where you go back on your threat...

So did Trump "bluff"?...

Of course he did. I don’t know what else you would call a threat to impose tariffs unless Mexico agrees to do something that he knew they had already agreed to do.

You ever play poker?

A threat is a bluff unless you are willing to stand behind it. If you opponent thinks you will, then the treat is as real as required to get the job done.

Tariffs on China are real. Although China is still resisting, the tariffs are in place. And for real. Mexico knows this and chose instead to to comply.

The illegal immigration issue at the southern border is real. For30 years Congress has had the power, but not the will, to act. Instead, they now impede the President's efforts to do the job. Trump is using the tools of the office of President to accomplish what our own legislators have refused to do.

I still ask this question of our Congress. "What is it that crosses the southern border, that you don't want stopped?

Right, the Mexican government rushed a high level delegation to negotiate immediately after Trump threatened to impose escalating tariffs, they didn't think he was bluffing. But the Resistance demands substitution of their hateful rhetoric for facts. The zealots are happy to oblige.

We ought to celebrate reaching an agreement with Mexico to reduce the influx of illegal immigrants. Instead, Democrats insist on criticizing Trump as the story.
