This is a very good article and it actually indicates that all Trumps Mexico polemics is actually untrue.
One thing in particular that stands out to me is that if anyone is not living up to its end of the Mérida Initiative …it’s us.
—that required Mexico to crack down on crime within its borders and the United States to address domestic drug demand.
…The results haven’t been perfect. Violent crime in Mexico has increased significantly the past few years, while the United States faces its own opioid epidemic.
So then it appears that the U.S. has failed to carry its own weight in that agreement by not curbing drug demand here as agreed.
Not to mention that Mexico is turning back thousands of Central American immigrants at their southern borders which is a huge help to the U.S.
So trying to make an economically strapped Mexico pay for a wall that will be ineffective anyway while saying they aren’t doing their part is just propaganda concocted to get himself elected or make himself look like he can reasonably deliver on this promise. So far it looks like we taxpayers get to foot the bill for it and as we have seen many times before that’s where it ends for us.:mad:
Maybe el Presidente Trump should pay for it all out of his own pocket?
Maybe he’d do better to pour all that money into curbing the demand for dope here in the states which would then help Mexico’s efforts to be more effective and benefit both nations,
Feeling duped yet my fellow Americans? You should…
