It was the bitch slap heard round the world
Donald Trump went to Mexico to meet with El Presidente Enrique Pena Nieto. Everybody speculated on what it meant. Was he backpedaling on his promise to build the wall? Was he softening his stance on illegal immigration? Jeb Bush cried like a little baby. “Waaah! Trump is adopting the same position I had, and I lost! It’s not fair!” Everybody from Glenn Beck to Ann Coulter to Limbaugh and Hannity were going after each other, because the media had convinced everyone that Trump was changing his position. Trump was going to become Marco Rubio. No more deportation force, an amnesty program, you name it.
So Trump went to Mexico and had a meeting and a press conference with Nieto, where he basically laid the smackdown on the Mexican president. Then he got back in his plane and flew to Arizona for a campaign stop and lit that crowd up. He electrified his supporters and silenced all the naysayers. Even Never Trumpers like Ana Navarro begrudgingly admitted that he did good. Trump sounded presidential. He pulled it off. He sounded sincere and forceful and he put America over.
When’s the last time you heard a potential president speaking positively about the United States? Obama doesn’t praise the U.S. All he does is apologize for America. Everytime he goes overseas, he runs down the United States. So it’s refreshing to hear someone go to another country and say his number one goal is to look after the American people. Trump says he will work with Mexico, but his first priority is America and helping its citizens.
You had so many jealous, disgruntled, anti-Trump Republican crybabies like Bill Kristol and Charles Krauthammer saying Trump did good. Then you had a plethora of people in Mexico running down their own president. Remember Jorge Ramos, the activist journalist who has a daughter that works for Hillary Clinton and was tossed out of a Trump press conference for being an annoying jerk? Jorge was outraged that Trump was going to Mexico. “How could our president meet with Trump? Nieto had better make him apologize! He’d better put him in his place!” Former Presidente Vicente Fox was outraged. Everybody in Mexico was outraged. “Nieto just stood there and didn’t say anything! He let Donald Trump bitch slap him!”
Nieto and Trump have a meeting and then a press conference. Trump says the subject of the wall wasn’t discussed. Then once Trump is safely out of the country, Nieto says that he told Trump that Mexico wasn’t going to pay for the wall. Nieto was standing right there on stage with Trump, the man he had previously compared to Hitler. He had every opportunity to set the record straight on the wall and that Mexico wasn’t going to pay for it. He didn’t. Enrique Pena Nietos got bitch slapped. Hours later, after Jorge Ramos, Vicente Fox and a host of others beat the crap out of him, Nieto said, “B-b-but I did tell him we weren’t paying for the wall! I told him! Trump is a big lying meanie bird!”
Wow. Talk about high school. I would get it if Trump were president already. You have to be diplomatic. But Donald Trump is just some rich jerkoff who has no chance of winning, according to the press. Look at the polls. They say Hillary is going to win in a landslide. Why was the president of Mexico worried about offending a candidate, especially one he compared to Hitler? They sat in a closed door meeting and had a press conference and not once did he say that Mexico wouldn’t pay for the wall. All of this comes out after Trump is already gone.
It’s not like Nieto is this beacon of respectability whose good manners wouldn’t allow him respond negatively to Trump on stage. The guy is corrupt as hell. Nieto has paid off the Mexican media to promote him and his party. He’s involved in the Panama papers controversy and he has all of these secret houses. Talk about choking. The Mexican president got punked. Trump made him his bitch.
Of course, you had Tim Kaine saying that Donald Trump was the one who choked. Trump choked on his first foreign policy test. Really? What the hell has Hillary Clinton accomplished in foreign policy? Libya? She had an American diplomat and soldiers not only being killed, but tortured in Benghazi. Is he talking about the Iran deal? The deal where we’ve given them hundreds of millions of dollars and they play chicken with our military? Where they still chant “Death to America?” What are Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy accomplishments? You wanna talk about choking? Hillary choked for four years as Secretary of State. The Russian reset? Choke. Libya? Choke. Iran? Choke. Syria? Choke. Boko Haram? Choke. Everybody forgets about Boko Haram. They rose to power while Hillary was in the State Department. You wanna talk about choking, Tim Kaine? Are you kidding me?
Donald Trump went to Mexico, he slapped the Mexican president and told him how things were going to be. Jorge Ramos and everybody in Mexico said their president got punked. Nieto waits for hours and hours before saying he told Trump they weren’t paying for the wall. Then he does an interview with Reuters where he said Trump and his policies were dangerous for Mexico and he wasn’t going to let them happen. Hey, Nieto. You knew about his polices when you invited him to your country. You stand on stage and say nothing, then you talk tough once Trump leaves the country after you get a barrio beatdown from the press.
Jorge Ramos, Vicente Fox, Felipe Calderon and every other corrupt Mexican official went to one of the houses Nieto is not supposed to have, formed a circle around him and gave him a beatdown. Bruised and bloodied, he then ran to the press and said, “I was tough! I told Trump no wall! His policies are dangerous! I’m not gonna let him do these things!”
What are you talking about, you putz? You got a beatdown. You got bitch slapped by the guy you called Hitler. You are a punk.
Quick note about this paying for the wall thing. Mexico is not going to actually write out a check and pay for the wall. What Trump is talking about when he says Mexico will pay for the wall is that remittances will be taxed. The billions of dollars that illegal immigrants send back to Mexico through remittances will be taxed. That is how the wall will be paid for. So yes, Enrique Pena Nieto, Vicente Fox, Jorge Ramos, Felipe Calderon, etc. Mexico will pay for the f—ing wall.
It’s funny, the media has been trying to say that Mexico paying for the wall is the centerpiece of Trump’s platform. No, it’s not. It’s actually is a very small part that Trump uses to fire up his base. But now that Trump hasn’t been stepping on his junk and his poll numbers are rising, now it’s his campaign centerpiece. I’m telling you, Democrats are pissing their panties. They are terrified that Trump can actually win.
Here’s a taste of what the Mexican president said:
Next November 8th, the United States people will elect a new president of the United States. I am sure that the electoral process will continue being intense debate — idea — contrasting all of these characteristics of the grand democratic tradition of the U.S.
Just as well, Ms. Hillary Clinton, as well as Mr. Donald Trump, have publicly expressed my respect. As has been with the president and friend, Barack Obama, the next president of North America will find in Mexico and its government a neighbor that wants to work constructively to strengthen even more the relationship among our nations and to confront together all the challenges that we face together in common.
Now remember, he’s already called Trump Hitler. Now he’s licking his sac.
We — I believe that there’s great opportunities for both countries if we decide to take advantage of this good friends, allies and strategic allies, beginning from a relationship based in mutual respect. Even though we may not agree on everything, I trust that together, we will be able to find better prosperity and security without losing sight of security and independence are the most important and have the most value.
Any close relationship needs to be visited and renewed from time to time. We always need to be open to discuss what has worked and what has hasn’t. How can we improve things on both sides of the border? How can we clear misunderstandings and understand each other better?
So keeping that in mind, a few days ago, I sent a letter to both presidential candidates, both to Mrs. Hillary Clinton and to Mr. Donald Trump, asking them to have a meeting and to have a constructive meeting of the shared future of our countries. I have met today with Mr. Donald Trump, and in the near future, I hope to do so with Ms. Hillary Clinton, with whom I have been pleased to have discussions over here in the past.
We may not agree on certain topics, but his presence here, Mr. Trump, demonstrates that we have a fundamental coincidence. Our respective countries are very important, one for the other. The U.S. is very important for Mexico just the same as Mexico is very important for the United States. We share the most travelled border through which every day, legally, more than a million people cross it and over 400,000 vehicles.
Yeah, 400,000 vehicles smuggling Xanax and Oxycontin from TJ back to California. Do you know how many of those people are going to Mexico to get cheap hookers and watch donkey shows? Just sayin’
It would have been very easy for Mr. Tough Guy Nieto to insert into his speech that Mexico wasn’t paying for the wall. He wouldn’t have been criticized. According to the Mexican media, they all hate Donald Trump. All Mexicans despise him. Jorge Ramos despises him, and he’s the voice of Mexicans around the world. Nieto’s approval ratings are in the toilet in Mexico, so he had a lot to gain by being tough on Trump and saying that they wouldn’t pay for the wall. But he wasn’t tough until Trump had left the country. What a bitch.
So I had a very open and constructive discussion with Mr. Donald Trump. The objective of this meeting was to meet each other and to know about the bilateral relations. As far as commercial issues, I shared with Mr. Trump my conviction that the free trade of North America has done a lot of good to both the U.S. as well as Mexico. U.S. exports to Mexico are close to $200 billion a year. And according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, more than six million jobs in the U.S. rely on the exports to Mexico.
Let’s not forget the remittance payments. Let’s not forget about the $24.8 billion dollars that gets sent back to Mexico. The amount of money Mexico makes from illegal immigrants living in the United States from remittances is more than they get from their oil revenues.
Every year thousands of dollars – billions of dollars and weapons come in from the North, which strengthen the cartels and other criminal organizations that generate violence in Mexico, and obtain gains from the drug sales in the U.S. This flow must be stopped.
Bulls—t. Vicente Fox even talked about working with the cartels and cooperating with them to reduce the violence. This is the country that allowed El Chapo to escape twice and won’t allow him to be extradited to the U.S. and be put in the Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado, where no one can possibly escape.
What we need is an integral focus regarding the border that serves the challenges of undocumented people and illegal drugs and weapon flows as cash all the same. Many lives may be saved in both sides of our borders if the criminal organizations stop receiving all the weapons and cash that today allow them to pursue their criminal endeavors.
Illegal weapons, drugs, and cash flows in both directions, have multiple negative consequences on both sides of the border. Our border must be seen as a joint opportunity. Both countries must invest more – more infrastructure, more people, and more technology to make it more – safer, and more efficient.
I do admit that the – recognize that the natural right that every country has to protect its own borders. I also believe that a real collaboration effort between friends and allied is the best route to obtain this. All the while, I express this to Mr. Trump to make a better border with Mexico, and all the friends from Central America.
Again, another opening to talk about the wall and how Mexico is not going to pay for it. But he didn’t. It’s not like anyone in Mexico would have been upset if he did. They would have cheered him. Nieto would have been a national hero. His popularity ratings would have gone through the roof. But he didn’t say anything. Enrique was intimidated by The Donald. He was intimidated just like Iran was intimidated by Ronald Reagan. That’s why Iran sent the hostages back the day Reagan was inaugurated. Iran knew Reagan would bomb the crap out of them and the peanut farmer was a pussy. Enrique Pena Nieto was intimidated by Donald Trump. That’s why Nieto called Trump Hitler while he was safely behind the border of Mexico and didn’t say anything about paying for the wall until hours after Trump left.
My conclusion’s that the Mexican government will be totally respectful of the electoral process of the United States. I recognize its position to sustain a constructive dialogue. A dialogue is the route that gets people closer to people who think differently. This is the route that allows for a better understanding.
So there’s Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. He’s given every opportunity to say Mexico won’t pay for the wall. Every opportunity to tell Trump that Mexicans aren’t all rapists and drug dealers and janitors and maids. But he wimped out. Trump made him his bitch.
Then it was Trump’s turn:
Thank you. It is a great honor to be invited by you, Mr. President. A great, great honor, thank you.
We had a very substantive, direct and constructive exchange of ideas over quite a period of time. I was straight forward in presenting my views about the impacts of current trade and immigration policies on the United States.
As you know, I love the United States very much and we want to make sure that the people of the United States are very well protected. You equally expressed your feelings and your love for Mexico.
Wow. When was the last time you heard that? Whenever Obama talks about America, all he does is say how we’re a flawed nation, we make mistakes, we’re bad, we’re horrible. We’re sorry.
The United States and Mexico share a 2,000-mile border, a half a trillion dollars in annual trade and one million legal border crossings each and every day. We are united by our support for democracy, a great love for our people and the contributions of millions of Mexican Americans to the United States.
We all share a common interest in keeping our hemisphere safe, prosperous and free. No one wins in either country when human smugglers and drug traffickers prey on innocent people, when cartels commit acts of violence, when illegal weapons and cash flow from the United States into Mexico or when migrants from Central America make the dangerous trek — and it is very, very dangerous — into Mexico or the United States without legal authorization.
You know what? I don’t think leaders like Nieto and Vicente Fox like Mexicans as much as Trump does. If they did, their people wouldn’t be getting their heads cut off by drug gangs and left in the street.
I shared my strong view that NAFTA has been a far greater benefit to Mexico than it has been to the United States and that it must be improved upon to make sure that workers, and so important, in both countries benefit from fair and reciprocal trade.
I expressed that to the United States and in — that of the United States, that we must take action to stem this tremendous outflow of jobs from our country. It’s happening every day, it’s getting worse and worse and worse, and we have to stop it. Prosperity and happiness in both of our countries will increase if we work together on the following five shared goals.
Number one, ending illegal immigration, not just between our two countries, but including the illegal immigration and migration from Central and South Americans, and from other regions that impact security and finances, in both Mexico and the United States.
This is a humanitarian disaster. The dangerous treks, the abuse by gangs and cartels and the extreme physical dangers and it must be solved, it must be solved quickly.
Mexico doesn’t do anything to solve the problem. Hell, do you know who caught El Chapo the second time around? Sean Penn. Sean Penn enticed El Chapo with a Mexican actress that he had the hots for and led authorities right to El Chapo’s doorstep. Mexico does nothing to protect their people. Do you know what they say? “Go to America. Just go to America and you’ll be safe. Here are the cities that won’t report you. Here are the cities that will give you driver’s licenses. There’s nothing we can do for you here. Just go.”
Number two, having a secure border is a sovereign right and mutually beneficial. We recognize and respect the right of either country to build a physical barrier or wall on any of its borders to stop the illegal movement of people, drugs and weapons. Cooperation toward achieving the shared objective, and it will be shared of safety for all citizens is paramount, to both the United States and to Mexico.
Number three, dismantling drug cartels and ending the movement of illegal drugs, weapons, and funds across our border. This can only be done with cooperation, intelligence and intelligence sharing and joint operations between our two countries.
And Sean Penn.
There are many improvements that could be made that would make both Mexico and the United States stronger and keep industry in our hemisphere. We have tremendous competition from China and from all over the world. Keep it in our hemisphere. Workers in both of our countries need a pay raise, very desperately. In the United States, it’s been 18 years, 18 years wages are going down.
Improving pay standards and working conditions will create better results for all and all workers in particular. There’s a lot of value that can be created for both countries by working beautifully together. And that I am sure will happen.
You wanna know how to improve your country, Mexico? Start by making your water drinkable without giving someone explosive diarrhea. I know we have a little lead in our water here in America, but nothing like the Montezuma’s Revenge you get from drinking Mexican water. Just a suggestion.
Number five, keep manufacturing wealth in our hemisphere. When jobs leave Mexico, the U.S. or Central America and go over seas, it increases poverty and pressure on social services as well as pressures on cross border migration. Tremendous pressure. The bond between our two countries is deep and sincere. And both our nations benefit from a close and honest relationship between our two governments.
A strong prosperous and vibrant Mexico is in the best interest of the United States and will keep and help keep, for a long, long period of time, America together. Both of our countries will work together for mutual good, and most importantly for the mutual good of our people. Mr. President, I want to thank you. It’s been a tremendous honor and I call you a friend. Thank you.
There you go. Nice speech, right? Then Trump and Nieto take a couple questions from the press, something Hillary Clinton refuses to do. Here’s Trump taking questions from Mexican reporters. Trump says they discussed the wall, but didn’t discuss payment. That will be for a later date. Again, another perfect opportunity for Nieto to deny Mexico would pay for the wall. Instead, Nieto said:
(I have) absolute respect for the election process in the United States. I wanted to invite both candidates — both candidates which was responded quite quickly by Mr. Trump.
So meaning besides the issues that we just recently discussed, we also talked about the — how relevant is the relationship among our countries, how important it is to have strategic alliance in between our countries.
I also asked and showed Mr. Trump the great responsibility that I have to defend the Mexican population, both to Mexicans who are here and outside of Mexico. That there has been a misinterpretation or assertions that regrettably had hurt and has affected Mexicans and it’s perception of his candidacy of which I am fully respectful.
Mexican people have felt hurt by the comments that have been made. But I am sure that his genuine interest is to build a relationship that will give both of our society’s better welfare.
That the willingness expressed of the Mexican presidency to get together with both candidates — both candidates of the United States based on that same premise to work together.
But above all in a mutual respect among nations. This is what I have shared with candidate Trump.
There you have it. That was Trump’s trip to Mexico. Then he hopped on his plane and flew to Arizona. He delivered an immigration speech that was factual and full of details. Definitely wasn’t softening his stance. Definitely not pandering for the Latino vote, which as we’ve explained numerous times, Trump doesn’t need. All Trump needs is the black vote, which he can easily get simply by telling the truth about how Democrats do nothing for black people. That’s why Dems freak out when Trump reaches out to them.
Trump’s immigration speech in Arizona detailed a plan that was firm, but fair. He was presidential. Let this be a lesson to all of my Republican friends who criticized Trump’s trip to Mexico before he went. Let this be a learning moment to the Never Trump naysayers. Donald Trump went to Mexico, didn’t compromise his stance and came back and did a victory dance in Arizona. Donald Trump told Mexico how it was going to be, and made Presidente Enrique Pena Nieto his bitch.
End of story.
