President Donald Trump has done it again. He just keeps winning. He just keeps proving the Trump Doctrine works magnificently.
Don't look now, but Trump has even built his wall -- and Mexico is paying for it. More on that later.
First, I want to explain how and why Trump is winning like no president in history. Even UFC legend Conor McGregor just called President Trump the GOAT -- as in "the greatest of all time."
It's all because of the Trump Doctrine, a mixture of Trump's unique business acumen and negotiating skills. No other politician in the world has this combination of traits.
Like McGregor, Americans can see Trump is getting tangible results.
First, the economy. Trump has created an economic miracle and a true Goldilocks economy. It's perfect. It's just right.
Trump knows jobs. We have millions of jobs. He knows how to get things moving. We've seen a dramatic bump in economic growth. He focuses with laser-like intensity on the middle class. We're enjoying dramatic middle-class wage growth. He understands stocks. We're in the midst of one of the greatest stock markets of all time. Yet there's virtually no inflation. This is the perfect economy.
Second, Trump understands the art of the deal. Actually, he wrote the book on it. America is the economic engine of the world. Every country in the world needs us more than we need it. Without our consumers, the world is out of business.
So Trump understands America is in the driver's seat. We are in the perfect position to make demands. The rest of the world has no choice but to blink. Under Trump, we are no longer the world's doormat.
We won with China. Trump brought the country to its knees. China came back to the table and capitulated. It was a massive victory for the U.S. economy, small business, manufacturers, farmers, energy companies and American jobs.
We won with Iran. Iran responds only to strength. Trump flexed America's muscle. Not only did Iran cave like a paper tiger but the Iranian people were also emboldened. Trump inspired them to rise up against their evil leaders. Iranian protesters days ago refused to step on an American flag. Trump's strength has changed the world.
Now we get to Mexico. Illegal immigrant crossings nationwide are down almost 80%. At the Arizona-Mexico border, illegal crossings are down by 94%. Once-overcrowded dorms, where we house illegal border crossers, are now empty. And Mexico is keeping illegals who demand asylum on their side of the border. It's another huge Trump victory.
How did he do it? Trump won a masterful negotiation with Mexico. Trump understood Mexico needs us far more than we need it. We could make its economy crumble in a nanosecond. Mexico blinked, just like China and Iran.
Faced with tariffs and economic ruin, Mexican officials agreed to place thousands of troops, at their expense, at both their northern and southern borders. Suddenly, no one can get through. A Mexican journalist just named this human wall of Mexican troops "Trump's Wall."
So, in fact, Trump has built the wall, a human wall. And Mexico is paying for it. Bravo.
Past politicians let the world step all over America and U.S. workers. There's a new sheriff in town. He's a businessman who understands we are the greatest nation in world history, ever blessed by God. And we are in a position of strength to make demands and win negotiations with anyone, anywhere, anytime.
That's the real Trump Doctrine. #WINNING.
Trump knows jobs. We have millions of jobs. He knows how to get things moving. We’ve seen a dramatic bump in economic growth. He focuses with laser-like intensity on the middle class. We’re enjoying dramatic middle-class wage growth. He understands stocks. We’re in the midst of one of the greatest stock markets of all time. Yet there’s virtually no inflation. This is the perfect economy.
Trump also knows the Federal Reserve and he was able to talk them out of causing a recession.
He sure does.
Here’s a guy who’s made himself a billionaire and he cares about the little guy.
Something other politicians always promise and NEVER deliver.
Trump also knew how to sell his economic policies. He called them pro jobs, rather than supply side or pro business.
at first glance
But I’d agree.
CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico From the roadside stand where his family sells mole, barbecue and chicken stew, Miguel Ángel Vázquez has seen all the caravans of Central American migrants and asylum seekers stream past his front door in recent years, throngs of people driven to flee poverty and violence in hopes of a better life in the United States.
After watching armored National Guard troops and immigration agents break up the latest one right on his doorstep, loading men, women and wailing children onto buses and hauling them off to a detention center in the nearby city of Tapachula, hes sure of one thing.
I can see that these caravans are no longer going to pass, said Vásquez, 56.
And what do you know, the article goes on to say that once the illegal immigration circus was rolled up, things returned to normal. That security (and the population) could easily distinguish between those who are entering Mexico from Guatemala for normal visitation or shopping from those who are trying to gate crash either Mexico or the United States.
Ahh, yes, happy endings and fulfilled campaign promises.
Yep, the same occurred to me in the past few weeks. We always knew that the ‘wall’ was as much (or more) of a metaphor, meaning a real commitment to secure the border, as it was an actual structure...and he’s delivered there (along with the real structure finally taking form).
But the Left never stopped hammering us on who pays for it...and now we have our answer - Mexico is paying us, indirectly, by stopping the flow on their southern border, and thus allow us to end the overtime and contractor expenses we had when we were getting flooded with Illegals...and since money is fungible, it now goes into that real, physical, wall.
“Yet there’s virtually no inflation.”
Heh heh..that part is BS!
I would very much like to see the links for those two claims - none provided in the article.
In FY 2019, we had the highest number of apprehensions on the southwest border in the last 15 years - close to 900,000.
Any year that follows 2019 is going to look like a big improvement.
In the first three months of FY 2020, apprehensions on the southwest border dropped from 150,000 to 100,000.
That's great - except for one problem...
In the first three months of FY 2015, Obama’s numbers were 20% BELOW Trump's numbers in FY 2020!
If we had an honest media which reported facts rather than spin, he would be leading nationwide by a margin of 80% to 20% or more. The 20% would be the hardcore communists and the lazy who prefer the sure thing of a government check to a real paycheck they have to earn.
Obama changed way immigration numbers were arrived at...no way to fairly compare to his manipulated numbers.

Yep - he exposed them and shamed them into not manufacturing a recession.
Of course they were. Who would risk their life trying to get to the US to live under Obama's economy? The country under Trump is the envy of their world.
