Maxine Waters is still stomping around in the mud pit of Trump Derangement Syndrome. The latest target of her scorn is the decision President Trump made to slap some tariff action on Mexico if they didn’t start taking care of business and stopping the flood of illegals using Mexico as a conduit to invade the USA. She was counting on utter failure and expected Trump to fold instead of play the hand, but it turns out that he was right once again. Before the work week was done, a deal was signed which resulted in a suspension of the tariffs, and some definitive action on the part of Mexico.
This from Breitbart:
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is spiking the political football after wrongly predicting how President Trump’s tariff threats against Mexico would pan out.
Trump announced the agreement Friday evening.
“I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico,” Trump tweeted Friday. “The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended.”
“Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border,” he continued. “This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States.”
The agreement should reduce the number of illegals pouring through the southern border, at least in part. The agreement effectively ends catch-and-release. Instead, migrants will be returned to Mexico while they wait out their asylum claims, which should in effect discourage migrants from illegally entering the United States with children.
The State Department said in a joint declaration:
In response, Mexico will authorize the entrance of all of those individuals for humanitarian reasons, in compliance with its international obligations, while they await the adjudication of their asylum claims. Mexico will also offer jobs, healthcare, and education according to its principles.
Additionally, Mexico agreed to take “unprecedented steps” to combat lawless migration, in part by deployment of the National Guard throughout Mexico, “giving priority to its southern border,” as well as taking swift action against human smuggling and trafficking organizations and their networks.

The thing I find so amusing is that before the big deal’s announcement is the part about Maxine insisting that he was only running a bluff. She must have totally forgotten she was talking about the man who wrote The Art Of The Deal. She was sure he would cave. Sorry, Maxine, he knows how to “speak softly and carry a big stick.” The Mexican authorities knew he wasn’t bluffing, and weren’t willing to take the chance. He has a track record of following through.
“Spineless GOP Senators grew a backbone this week & finally stood up to their Dictator Trump on something: Mexico tariffs, also known as a TAX INCREASE on American consumers. Bet your bottom dollar, Trump will back off by the weekend. Just another bluff!”
She seems to have totally missed the president’s announcement, or at least refuses to believe it. In essence, she “spiked the political football” with a retweet of a Raw Story article titled, “Maxine Waters praised for correctly predicting when Trump would cave on his trade war with Mexico.”
How is it that even when faced with undeniable evidence that liberals refuse to abandon their hatred of the new deal and continue to wallow in the hate? The main reason it’s being framed as a “cave” by Democrats (as was reported by Breitbart News) is because the only thing they have is to “oppose a deal, in part, because it reduces their bargaining power in the domestic fight against Trump to win amnesty for millions of illegals,” the particulars of which can be seen in more detail in this Breitbart News article.
