According to the NYTimes, Donald Trump is making a claim for a success tied to his threat to put tariffs on Mexico for getting Mexico to do something that it agreed to months ago. The times reported,
"The deal to avert tariffs that President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations.

Friday's joint declaration says Mexico agreed to the "deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border." But the Mexican government had already pledged to do that in March during secret talks in Miami between Kirstjen Nielsen, then the secretary of homeland security, and Olga Sanchez, the Mexican secretary of the interior, the officials said."

This is no surprise. Trump, as a malignant narcissist, is a chronic liar. The question is, how many times has he claimed success in the past where his claim was a lie and fraud. It's amazing that Trump supporters continue to back such a flaming liar. But it's probably because of his onslaught of attacks on media.

Oh Yes - full of lies. No, Trump did not tell "you will find out WHO really knocked down the World Trade Center" on 9/11 ("some people did something").

No, not true - Trump did not "it's so important to audit the Federal Reserve" (does not "truly wants to fix the economy"). Yes -Trump did "cut corporate taxes" (except the "wealth" and "income" never did "trickle down"). Millions of "outsourced jobs" did not return to the United States as Trump promised. Only 75,000 new jobs created for May 2019 and nothing hardly mentioned anymore about those "millions of outsourced jobs" returning ("made in Mexico, popular on U.S. roads").

Trump "ran up the deficit" by "borrowing money" from the fed in lieu of issuing "new money for the benefit of the American public rather than the benefit of the banking industry".

The NYT left out this part of Trump's statement. Imagine that.

.....Mexico was not being cooperative on the Border in things we had, or didn't have, and now I have full confidence, especially after speaking to their President yesterday, that they will be very cooperative and want to get the job properly done. Importantly, some things.....



....not mentioned in yesterday press release, one in particular, were agreed upon. That will be announced at the appropriate time. There is now going to be great cooperation between Mexico & the USA, something that didn't exist for decades. However, if for some unknown reason...

I trust you, Rob, You've definitely proved yourself.


There are a good number of others, a la Lila, and others who've given the

proof of time. Bob Parry I miss horribly.


Thanks for giving Ramani the 'editor' job. He's well worth it for more than

only Asia.

I think most Trump supporters, like you, prospect for gold in Donald Trump's feces. But it is fools gold. He makes promises that he never fulfills many times a day, like you cite. How many times do you have to be deceived before you learn?
