Mexico challenged Donald Trump.
Their leaders thought they could get away with taking advantage of the American President.
But then Rush Limbaugh told this one truth about the border that will blow your mind.
Donald Trump was fed up.
The crisis at the Southern border hit a critical mass.
In the month of May, Border Patrol arrested 144,000 illegal aliens trying to invade America.
That figure represented a 32 percent increase from April.
President Trump assessed the situation and saw that Congressional Democrats were content to sit on their hands and hope the border crisis sunk President Trump’s 2020 campaign so the next Democrat President could pass a massive amnesty bill.
Trump knew he had to take matters into his own hands, so he threatened to slap a five percent tariff on all Mexican goods.
This tariff would increase by five percent every month until hitting 25 percent in October unless Mexico took steps to end, or seriously curtail, the illegal aliens traveling through Mexico on their way to the United States.
The fake news media, Democrats, and swamp Republicans shrieked in outrage.
They claimed Trump fabricated a crisis and would tank the economy with his tariff threats.
So-called “journalists” claimed Trump’s tariffs would wipe out the savings from the tax bill and cost up to 400,000 American jobs.
But a funny thing happened.
Mexico realized their economy would be destroyed and raced to the United States to negotiate.
Rush Limbaugh noted the hysteria of the fake news media and also pointed out a surprising truth about Trump’s actions.
“Ladies and gentlemen, something pretty important just happened on the Mexican border, the southern Mexican border. I just ran across this. This is a story from Reuters. Let me put this in context. As you know, President Trump has been talking about the imposition of tariffs on Mexico. And the chorus in Washington made up of the opposition including many Republicans say, “You can’t do that! Oh, my God! That would be terrible! You’d cost 400,000 American jobs! You can’t do that! The Mexicans will never go for it! You can’t do this!” Limbaugh began.
Limbaugh then pointed out that despite the media hoopla, Mexico actually began to take steps to thwart illegal aliens from marching through their country to the United States.
“Yet Reuters: “Mexican soldiers, armed police, and migration officials blocked hundreds of migrants after they crossed the Mexican border from Guatemala in a caravan into southern Mexico,” this was late yesterday, “and deigned dozens of them according to a witness from a migrant aid group. The Mexican response in the border town of Metapa, which included dozens of soldiers, marked a toughening of the government’s efforts to curb the flow of mainly Central American migrants, said Salva Cruz, a coordinator with Fray Matias de Cordova,” Limbaugh added.
At the end of the day, Trump emerged victorious.
Mexico agreed to deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to their Southern border and expand the “remain in Mexico” policy which allows the Trump administration to send more asylum seekers back to Mexico to wait until their case is adjudicated.
It was a true “Art of the Deal.”
