I know who pays it. My point is the government collects it and then my question remains- Where does the money go ? In Mexico's example that collected tariff will no doubt reach well beyond the $5 or $10 billion needed to build the wall.

Could be the end game. not sure.  Don't think so though.  Don't think the Democrats will allow it to happen.

I see Mexico is capitulating a bit.  Good.  They need to understand the ramifications of what a tariff will do to their economy at least their legal economy..... :o

I see where we're getting comments in the news from some Pukes expressing concern over Trump's proposed tariffs on Mexico. Undoubtedly they heard from some deep pocketed contributors who might take a hit. Yeah they might, but not anything near the hit Mexico will experience. If nothing else Trump has the pols and Mexico's attention.

First these Pukes. Illegal immigration is a national emergency. Trump did his best to get the Congress and the Senate to fix the problem. Pukes mouthed the words, but when push came to shove they didn't have Trumps back. As for Dems, well they did as Dems do, nothing to address the issue, and demonize Trump. So here we are.

Funny thing is, or maybe a not so funny thing is, Mexico ultimately may be counting on the American Pols, media, courts and corporate interests, to win the day for them. I think they'll negotiate around the edges until they get a feel for which way the wind is blowing. If their gringo allies win against Trump wonderful, back to the status quo. If Trumps wins they fold like a cheap suit.
courts along with the media

Pretty sure Trump and the repukes battle over this one.   Trump as tired of the pukes as he is of the dems.

The pukes always waffle, it's part of their karma.  I see there are big rumblings in the party about the Mex tariff's.

I would agree, Trump is as sick of his own party as he is of the Dims.

Hate it when leftists decry Trump's income tax rate reductions as only benefiting the wealthy.
Thing is it depends on your definition of the wealthy, but I would submit most all of the people who got an income tax rate deduction deserved it. Billionaire Warren B. makes his money from investments and is taxed at 15%, the capital gains tax rate. A Doctor and his teacher wife making $ 250K plus pay 37%. 

By my way of thinking they're both wealthy. However, the doctor/teacher combo are more likely to support the income tax break. Buffett, on the other hand, doesn't benefit one way of the other, so his deal is to side with the Dems, contribute bigly, and have them stay focused on the "income tax" paying "wealthy".  Dems end up with best of both worlds. They hammer the income tax paying "wealthy and safeguard the truly super wealthy benefactors who cut them big campaign checks.

Amazing how Mexico is suddenly capable of stopping people and turning them back at their Southern Border.

Trump just won my vote for 2020.

Amazing what a little pressure on the pocketbook will accomplish.

What lights me up was they could have done that the whole time but chose not to.

I see Trump is ramping up the restrictions on Cuba, another good thing.  Cuba has been aiding Maduro in oppressing his people.  I read Cuba is sending so much aid to him that they have had to ration food to their citizens.  Bet the perimiter around Git Mo is being patrolled heavily right now.

No more cruise ships to Cuba for starters, no more flights to Havana.

Trump has always had my vote in 2020.  There is no other candidate that is viable as President, certainly not on the D ticket.  They are all free stuff buffons.

I'm delighted at the announced deal with Mexico, but I still want to see what happens. It ain't a victory if it doesn't significantly staunch the flow of illegals, both refused entry and those sneaking across the border.

Folks I'm here to tell you this situation is nuts. Most everybody who isn't a pol knows it's a frigging catastrophe that has to be addressed. Yet in Washington it is only Trump is doing something to address the crisis. Senate Pukes snipe about how unseemly it is using tariffs blah, blah, blah and Dems stress how tariffs will hit American pocketbooks, and oh by the way it's another example of Trump being a racist. Meanwhile, whatever progress is being made to address the issue is solely due the actions of Trump. Period.

Reminds me of the movie 'Every which way but Loose'....  Trump is getting nowhere with the Dims (and some Repukes) on the border issue so in every which way but loose fashion, he backdoored them.

One another fine note, I see the network has chosen the moderators for the Dim debate.  Rachael Madcow is the lead moderator, what does that tell you...

I fear if someone beats Trump, we are in a world of hurt.   Don't see that happening however.  Certainly not flip-flop Biden or Socialist utopia Sanders.  Maybe Beto?? ;D

Obama got elected.  But we didn't know he hated America at the time.
Im to the point that I don't trust elections or most anything else the government has their hands in.

He got re-elected after it was very clear he hates America.
