    Only the Trump supporters bought that lie, Phil.

    Are you just now catching on?

    No, because I've always said the money could come from border crossing fees or tarriffs.
    You dont read very well, Frankie. Your seething anger and hatred for Trump is clouding your thought processes

    Trump did not violate campaign finance rules: https://dailycaller.com/2018/12/12/c...nce-spakovsky/

    Former FEC Commissioner Hans Von Spakovsky debunked the argument that President Donald Trump broke campaign finance laws by paying women he allegedly had affairs with prior to becoming president.

    The president’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, was sentenced to three years in jail on Wednesday for a litany of crimes, including making an illegal campaign contribution amounting to $130,000 to Stormy Daniels, who alleges she slept with Trump in 2006, so she would keep quiet about the affair.

    Despite the guilty plea, Spakovsky said that Trump should not be worried because it would have to be a “campaign-related expense” for the contribution break any campaign finance laws.

    He also pointed out that the only other time the Justice Department tried to say payments like these were campaign-related expenses was with John Edwards. Donations to Edwards’ campaign actually went to paying his mistress, a woman who worked for the campaign and ended up having his child.

    A jury, however, ruled that Edwards’ donations were not a campaign-related expense.

    Spakovsky went on to say that Trump has nothing to worry about and that the U.S. attorney’s office is being “overly aggressive” in their pursuit of the matter

    He sure made it sound that way. "We are going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it."

    Now I will agree that the crux of the matter is we will build a wall, but it will not cost Americans anything. So whether the Mexican gov't or the Mexican travellers pay for it, does not change that concept. The only problem, as someone else pointed out, is that the U.S. has to front the money and then it will take over a hundred years for the U.S. to recoup it. That is in no way what trump was proposing.

    So you admit Trump lied when he said Mexico would pay for it, now you're claiming that he always meant that the US would pay for the wall and then try to make Mexican workers and tourists pay the US back, not Mexico.

    And congrats on finding one view that thinks Trump has a defence, even if Cohen already shredded it in court by stating that it was hush money for the campaign.

    No I never did but apparently Trumps supporters did. Because that is what he kept telling them.

    The democrat idea of boarder security is the use of a fence and drones. Chuck even said so.
    A wall isnt fool proof, but its certainly a better determinant than a fence which can be easily cut, or damaged by a large number of people. I watched live footage of San Diego–Tijuana and its a joke of a wall. It looked to be decades old, and people were tearing it apart with ease.

    It's much more than just a symbol, its a practical tool to detour people, and force them to seek other means of entry.
    The sticking points for Canada were the sunset clause and dispute resolution mechanism, both of which the US caved on. Canada did give up on some dairy but consistent with what they had agreed to in the TPP. The higher value added and wage concessions made by Mexico wer for the most part already in place and to the extent they were not will favor the US and Canada. These were relatively minor tweaks and as usual Trump declaring victory.

    If you watched that insane meeting in the oval office the other day Trump was bragging about all the work done on the wall and how well it is progressing and how effective it has been. The FACT is that not one inch of Trumps wall has been built. All they have done is repair and replace existing fences. The Dems are in favor of border security and always have been. just not a symbolic wall which the states that abut the border do not even want.

    Trump is playing his supporters for fools and i do not think you are a fool.

    Yes, finally a record which Cadet Bone Spurs can call his own. A whopping $411 Bln deficit in one month!
    This is on his way to a record annual deficit too. Trump doesn’t care, he won’t be around when the bills come due. To Bone Spurs, making “America Great Again” is like building a casino. Borrow out the whazoo then stiff supplier’s, creditors, contractors and workers and skip town.

    Trump = insane moron. His saving grace is that his core is collectively dumber than a sack of hammers.
