The Soviets sure did love infrastructure. Worked out well for them.
As we’ve said, eminent domain stinks. And Trump has used it in the past in his business dealings.
A tariff is a tax. Taxes are bad generally speaking and they are here too. Build the wall, but let’s be honest about it. One way or another Americans will pay for it. People may want a wall. And that seems OK to me (in that it seems legal and within the Constitution), but we’re going to foot the bill one way or another. (I personally would prefer very much not to.)
Trump painted himself into a rhetorical corner here and he should have let the “Mexico is going to pay for it”
We are not going to get into the border wall debate, but this is pretty rich.
Well, it seems the former president of Mexico doesn’t much care for Donald Trump’s idea. I just figured that Trump was buddies with one of the crony allstars Carlos Slim, the Mexican concrete magnate, and they had a deal ready to go. But maybe not.
