The Politics Behind Donald Trump’s Empty Threats on Mexico Border

Jesse Jackson

Donald Trump’s flailing on immigration and the Mexican border continue to spiral into chaos. First, he threatened to close the border with Mexico. One week later, he walked that back. He declares a national emergency about the “invasion” of people seeking asylum from Central American countries, and then says he’s stopped all aid to those countries, which can only worsen the conditions that cause people to leave. He says he’s already building a wall. That isn’t true. He torpedoes bipartisan measures that might begin to make things better.

Trump leading the birther movement from 2008 forward became the launching pad (and the raw meat his base loves) for his 2016 campaign that serially fanned anti-immigrant flames that continue today, as Jackson notes.

Trump never misses an opportunity to create a crisis that he subsequently tells us he is solving even though he isn’t. think North Korea, health care…the list goes on.

Jackson sez:
“… (Chump) directs his State Department to cut off $450 million in aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, which will surely worsen the conditions that are driving people to seek asylum.”

Or, “The beatings will continue until morale improves!” (See: Chile, 1973; or Venezuela, 2019)

What, you would damage the pie hole that gives us one of the best actors as president in our lifetime? It is impressive to see a man continuously lie straight faced, make shit up on the fly, and is able to do with a straight face as though he is a normal person.

Today Bernie releases 10 years of tax forms.
Nobody has asked this yet, and it may be mute, but are there any Trump Russian tax returns?
Oops, it’s time to go out and burn another Trump effigy.
