BREAKING: Trump Reveals His GENIUS Plan to Have Mexico Pay for The Wall

Ever since the campaign trail, President Trump has promised a “big, beautiful border wall,” and he made that promise even better by stating that Mexico would pay for it.

Trump has kept his plan to get Mexico to pay heavily under wraps, but now, it’s been unveiled and quite frankly, IT’S GENIUS!

From WND

WASHINGTON – Quietly, and without any fanfare from major media, Donald Trump has unveiled his plan for getting Mexico to pay for the border wall.

He says he plans to offer a new deal on NAFTA that will share increased revenues between the two countries more equitably, a small portion of which will be diverted to pay for the cost of the wall.

The Trump administration is currently seeking federal funding for the wall while renegotiating the U.S. trade deal with both Mexico and Canada.

“They can pay for it indirectly through NAFTA,” Trump said Thursday in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. “We make a good deal on NAFTA, and, say, ‘I’m going to take a small percentage of that money and it’s going toward the wall.’ Guess what? Mexico’s paying.”

Trump’s comments came hours after he was updated by his administration’s top economic and trade advisers on the progress of those negotiations and the administration’s trade actions more broadly.

 Trump repeatedly promised during the campaign that he would build a wall on the Southern U.S. border and get Mexico to pay for it. Democrats are refusing even to approve a budget without a bill to approve DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which he rescinded in the fall.

Trump warned Thursday that if Mexico did not agree to new terms on the free trade deal, known formally as the North American Free Trade Agreement, then he would simply “terminate” the deal.

“Now, Mexico may not want to make the NAFTA deal, which is OK, then I’ll terminate NAFTA, which I think would be frankly a positive for our country,” Trump said.

FLASHBACK: Trump Personally Financed Medical Mission to Help Sick Haitians

Democrats and the lying liberal media are once again desperately trying to paint President Trump as a “racist” by suggesting he does not care about the people of Haiti.

That couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Back in 2015, Donald Trump helped finance Senator Rand Paul’s medical mission to help the poor, sick people of Haiti.

From Town Hall

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that charges of racism against President Donald J. Trump are unfounded in part because of the 45th president’s large financial contribution to Dr. Paul’s2015 Haiti medical mission trip.

“I think it’s unfair to sort of paint him, ‘oh well, he’s a racist,’ when I know for a fact that he cares very deeply about the people of Haiti because he helped finance a trip where they would get vision back for 200 people in Haiti,” Paul said.

In 2015, Rand Paul was part of a group of U.S. doctors who volunteered their time to go serve some of the world’s poorest individuals and assist in various medical procedures.

At the time Guardian published a detailed article on this trip.

“People need to be encouraged it’s not much longer,” said Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul, an ophthalmologist by training, without taking his eyes off Saint Fleur.

As many of Paul’s competitors courted voters in Iowa and New Hampshire over the last week, Kentucky’s fiery junior senator joined a team of eye surgeons on a four-day mission to Haiti, giving vision to nearly 200 who would not have been blind if they lived in the US. Here in the poorest nation in the western hemisphere, “curable blindness” from common ailments such as

“If Jesus can give me back my vision, I will be happy,” said Saint Fleur, who would soon have a cataract almost the size of a dime removed from his left eye. The aging man, who balances himself with a worn walking stick, said he wanted his vision back simply to see his family again.”

Rand Paul helped Saint Fleur and nearly 200 more Haitians see, the Guardian article continues.

On Tuesday morning, the day after his surgery, Saint Fleur sat in a room crowded with patients quietly waiting for the bandages to come off. He was speechless for a few moments after the white gauze was peeled away. Then he began to smile.

“I see! I see!” he said, joy spreading across his face. With shaking hands, he began reaching out for nearby medical staff, hugging anyone he could and affectionately touching their faces.

“I love you,” he told a nurse. “Yesterday I couldn’t see!”

Saint Fleur then spoke directly to Paul: “If it’s for money, I could not do this. I have no money,” he said through an interpreter. “God sent you to me.”

President Trump has fallen under harsh criticism this week, over allegedly referring to Haiti as a “sh*thole” country and wondering why America accepted its immigrants.

EXPOSED: “Chain Migration” a Scam to Import Millions of Democrat Voters

There’s a reason why Democrats are fighting tooth and nail to keep from having immigration reform talks, and it is because programs like “chain migration” will help keep the party brimming with new fresh faced voters for years to come.

The process of chain migration will add 8 MILLION new “Democrat” voters over the next two decades.

From Breitbart

The United States’ current “chain migration” process, where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. with them, is likely to add a potential 8 million new foreign-born voters to the country’s electorate over the next two decades.

Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 million foreign nationals to the country, with the vast majority deriving from family-based chain migration, where naturalized citizens are allowed to bring their extended family members to the country. In 2016, the legal and illegal immigrant population reached a record high of 44 million. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.

CIS Director of Research Steven Camarota revealed to Breitbart News that overall, the current U.S. legal immigration system is on track to import roughly 15 million new foreign-born voters in the next 20 years. Of those new voters, Camarota told Breitbart News that between 7 million and 8 million will be brought to the U.S. through chain migration, a sect of legal immigration that President Trump has demanded an end to, but that Democrats and the Republican establishment have been unwilling to eliminate.

Research by University of Maryland, College Park political scientist James Gimpel has found in recent years that more immigrants to the U.S. inevitably means more Democrat voters and thus, increasing electoral victories for the Democratic Party.

In 2014, Gimpel’s research concluded with three major findings:

Immigrants, particularly Hispanics and Asians, have policy preferences when it comes to the size and scope of government that are more closely aligned with progressives than with conservatives. As a result, survey data show a two-to-one party identification with Democrats over Republicans.

By increasing income inequality and adding to the low-income population (e.g. immigrants and their minor children account for one-fourth of those in poverty and one-third of the uninsured) immigration likely makes all voters more supportive of redistributive policies championed by Democrats to support disadvantaged populations.

There is evidence that immigration may cause more Republican-oriented voters to move away from areas of high immigrant settlement leaving behind a more lopsided Democrat majority.

As Breitbart News reported, five years of chain migration to the U.S. has exceeded one year of all American births, where about 4 million U.S. babies are born every year.

The Trump administration began a campaign in 2017 to end chain migration, noting that more than 9 million foreign nationals have been brought to the U.S. for no other reason than to reunite with extended family members.

Previously unreleased data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has revealed the scope and size to which chain migration has majorly contributed to decades of mass immigration to the U.S.

Chain migration is increasingly unpopular with the American people. As Breitbart News reported, a recent poll by Pulse Opinion Research found that nearly 60 percent of likely voters said they wanted chain migration to end.

The majority of Americans also said in the poll that they wanted to see reductions to current legal immigration levels, where the U.S. admits a little more than 1 million new legal immigrants a year.

A majority of 60 percent of likely voters said they wanted to see legal immigration cut down to 500,000 new immigrants or even less. Only 27 percent of voters said they wanted current legal immigration levels to remain the same or be increased beyond 1 million new admissions a year.

Judge Who Blocked Trump’s DACA Ruling Facing MASSIVE Backlash!

The Clinton appointed judge, William Alsup, is already facing major legal issues after issuing a block to President Trump’s decision to end DACA.

According to legal experts, Alsup’s use of a local California case in order to halt the nationwide DACA termination ruling could damage the notion of an impartial bench.

Furthermore, legal experts are also concerned that one judge can decide an entire national policy, which tarnishes the relationship between the courts and political branches.

From Fox News

The New York Times reported Sunday that Judge William Alsup, the federal judge from the Northern District of California, used a local case before issuing the nationwide stop.

“How can a single judge decide a question for the whole country?” Samuel Bray, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, asked the paper.

Bray wrote a recent article where he spoke out against federal judges issuing nationwide injunctions, the paper reported.

“Increasingly, legal scholars are concerned about the way national injunctions are transforming the relationship between the courts and the political branches,” he said.

Alsup wrote that it is “plausible” that President Trump ended the program for racial reasons, Politico reported.

“Circumstantial evidence of intent, including statements by a decisionmaker, may be considered in evaluating whether government action was motivated by a discriminatory purpose,” Alsup wrote on Friday. “These statements were not about the rescission (which came later) but they still have relevance to show racial animus against people south of our border.”

DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas. The program includes hundreds of thousands of college-age students.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Wednesday that the ruling was “outrageous, especially in light of the president’s successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House on the same day.”

The Times’ report said the U.S. Supreme Court might address the issue of these injunctions.

Josh Blackman, a professor at South Texas College of Law Houston, told the paper, “The justices don’t like the district courts changing national policy overnight.”

BREAKING: Anti-Trump Judge’s Daca Ruling May Not Be Legal!

Legal scholars believe the Clinton appointed judge’s ruling to over-rule Trump’s Daca ban may not be legal.

The judge who barred the Trump administration from turning back the Obama-era DACA program last week has some legal scholars concerned that the ruling could damage the notion of an impartial bench.

The New York Times reported Sunday that Judge William Alsup, the federal judge from the Northern District of California, used a local case before issuing the nationwide stop.

EXPOSED! Flake Plans to Sabotage Trump’s ‘Fake News’ Awards With DUMB STUNT

Failed Senator and self-proclaimed globalist Jeff Flake has hatched a really stupid plan to defend the lying fake news media, and sabotage President Trump.

Flake will make a speech on Wednesday, where he will compare President Trump to communist dictator Joseph Stalin.

This comes on the heels of Flake’s recent ABC News interview, where he also compared our America First President to Stalin.

From Fox News

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., will make a speech scheduled for Wednesday where he will compare President Trump’s concerns of media objectivity to similar comments made by communist dictator Joseph Stalin.

Flake, a fervent critic of the Trump administration, is set to give the speech the same day Trump is expected to announce the winners of the so-called “fake news” awards.

The senator will use his speech to condemn Trump’s attacks on the press and for calling it “the enemy of the American people.”

In the draft of the speech, obtained by The Washington Post, Flake will then compare Trump’s comments to statements made by Stalin, who is responsible for the murder of millions.

“It is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies,” the senator is expected to say, according to the excerpts published by the Post.

“It bears noting that so fraught with malice was the phrase ‘enemy of the people,’ that even Nikita Khrushchev forbade its use, telling the Soviet Communist Party that the phrase had been introduced by Stalin for the purpose of ‘annihilating such individuals’ who disagreed with the supreme leader.”

According to the outgoing senator’s speech excerpts, Trump “has it precisely backward — despotism is the enemy of the people,” adding that “When a figure in power reflexively calls any press that doesn’t suit him ‘fake news,’ it is that person who should be the figure of suspicion, not the press.”

The relationship between Flake and Trump has been soured from the start. During the 2016 presidential election, Trump said Flake is “a very weak and ineffective Senator.” Last summer, the commander-in-chief praised his Republican challenger Kelli Ward, adding that the Arizona senator “is weak on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!”

Flake announced his resignation in October with a scathing attack on the president, calling his behavior “reckless, outrageous, and undignified.”

He also criticized the Republican Party that, in his view, had “given in or given up on the core principles in favor of a more viscerally satisfying anger and resentment,” adding that “anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy.”

Juan Williams Endorses Oprah for President

Democrats have not given up on their fantasy of Oprah for President.

Fox News’ Juan Williams has now written an Op-Ed piece in “The Hill” explaining why he thinks Oprah would be the left’s best bet to dethrone Trump.

Juan Williams Writes in TheHill

I know Oprah Winfrey. So I can say it: President Trump, sir, you are no Oprah.

Trump said last week he’d beat Winfrey in the 2020 presidential race. And he dismissed the burst of talk about her possible 2020 candidacy with a belittling comment: “Oprah will be a lot of fun.”

Of course, that opened the door for a poll. Winfrey beat Trump by 10 percentage points, 48-38, according to Rasmussen.

Even with the polling, my initial reaction to the ‘Oprah for President’ excitement was skepticism. After the disastrous first year of the Trump presidency, and his historic low standing in the polls, I thought Americans would have a new thirst for stable, experienced leadership.

American voters also have a habit of picking a president who is the opposite of the incumbent. So why trust another TV celebrity as commander-in-chief?

But all the polling indicates that people still want an outsider — someone to shake up Washington. They remain fed up with the polarized, do-nothing Congress, the chaos in the White House and the partisan media. That means policy background and political experience are not necessary.

By that logic, our presidential elections will necessarily shift to contests among high-profile political outsiders focused on character, intelligence and integrity.

If that is the new norm for presidential politics, then Oprah is the greatest threat to Trump’s reelection other than the president himself.

FAKE NEWS? ABC Makes Dubious Claim About Republican 2018 Midterm Prospects

ABC news quoted “anonymous sources” in claiming that Republican strategists are “decidedly pessimistic” about the prospects for the 2018 midterm elections and believe they will lose the house.

This is very typical of mainstream media “fake news.”

First of all, how many were asked and WHO were those asked?

If it was #NeverTrumpers like Bill Kristol, Karl Rove and George Will….well of COURSE.

But then again, they have been wrong along.

ABC is also the home of the infamously suspended Brian Ross, whose “serious error” (fake news) tanked the stock market. 

From ABC

Republican strategists have turned decidedly pessimistic about their prospects for the 2018 midterm elections.

Prominent Republicans are now saying privately that Democrats are virtually certain to win control of the House of Representatives.

As one senior Republican on Capitol Hill told ABC News, “If the election were held today, the House would be gone. Fortunately, the election is not today.”

Another prominent Republican strategist working on the midterm elections went further, telling ABC News point-blank that Republicans will lose the House and that this prospect unlikely to change.

“The only question is whether Democrats win narrowly by picking up 25 seats or whether it is a blowout of more than 35 seats,” the strategist told me.

Allies of President Donald Trump are convinced the president will quickly face impeachment hearings if Democrats take control of the House.

One Republican close to Trump predicted that not only will there be impeachment hearings but that the prospects for the president would be grim.

“Consider what happened with Bill Clinton,” the Trump ally said. “Clinton was disciplined; he had a strategy and still he was impeached.”

Economists Agree – TRUMP Deserves Credit for the Economy, NOT Obama!

The days of President Obama somehow claiming his failed legacy has something to do with the last year of economic boom should now be over.

A survey of economics suggest President Trump should be taking a bow, NOT Obama.

The idea that Obama deserved any credit whatsoever was ludicrous to begin with since the economy and stock market are based largely on future looking expectations and sentiment, NOT backwards looking.

From TheHill

Who deserves credit for the booming economy? This is not a petty argument. How voters answer the question could well determine whether Democrats retake the House of Representatives come November.

Trump and Obama (and their admirers) are slugging it out, both claiming that it is their policies that have led to the ongoing economic expansion, steady job growth and higher stock prices.

Happily for President Trump, the pros agree with him. A recent survey of economists suggest it is President Trump, and not Obama, who should be taking a bow.

The Wall Street Journal asked 68 business, financial and academic economists who was responsible for the strengthening of the economy, and most “suggested Mr. Trump’s election deserves at least some credit” for the upturn.

A majority said the president had been “somewhat” or “strongly” positive for job creation, gross domestic product growth and the rising stock market.

The pros cite the White House’s push for lighter regulation and the recent tax bill as critical to a pro-growth environment; more than 90 percent of the group thought the tax bill would boost GDP expansion over the next two years.

A year ago in the same survey, economists awarded President Obama mixed grades. Most saw his policies as positive for financial stability, but neutral-to-negative for GDP growth and negative for long-term growth. By contrast, Trump was seen as neutral to positive for long-term gains.

Why would Trump rate higher than Obama with this group? Economists point to the upturn in business confidence that accompanied Trump’s election, and tie that to increasing business investment. Spending on capital goods accelerated sharply over the first three quarters of last year, growing at an annualized rate of 6.2 percent.

Such outlays will spur productivity gains and lead to wage hikes, creating a virtuous circle complete with rising consumer confidence and spending.

Unhappily Trump, voters have not yet caught up with the experts. Democrats have done an excellent job of trashing Trump’s policies, issuing hysterical alarms over the supposed dangers of deregulation (toxic water, foul air!) and vilifying the GOP tax bill.

Imagine the nation polling negative on a tax cut for an estimated 90 percent of the workers. That takes genius.
