How many of you who have been screaming at me about how “evil” tariffs are, are going to admit that this is precisely the desired effect?

Facing a Monday deadline to avoid tariffs, the Mexican government froze the bank accounts of the human traffickers of illegal aliens to the USA.

Reuters reported, “The Mexican Finance Ministry said on Thursday it blocked the bank accounts of 26 people for their alleged involvement in human trafficking, as Mexico broadens its migration clampdown amid growing pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump.

“The ministry’s Financial Intelligence Unit said in a statement it froze the accounts due to ‘probable links with human trafficking and illegal aid to migrant caravans.’

But Don Surber has this one right…

The media has missed this story, concentrating on the monetary effects of a tariff if imposed.
But that was more anti-Trump hysteria.
President Donald John Trump lives to negotiate. Tariffs are a reminder of who has the upper hand in the negotiations.
Red China needs us more than we need them.
Ditto Mexico.
We can tell them to shove the avocados where the tequila doesn’t sunrise.
Chairman Xi thinks he can wait out President Trump and rig the 2020 election.
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador knows better

Remember, Donald Trump was never my guy.

I would have vastly preferred Ted Cruz to be in the oval office. That said, when Trump is right he’s right oh, and the fact is he usually is these days.

And that point is driving a lot of people… Including the Democrats and the establishment GOP ….absolutely insane.
