Pelosi: “Threats and Temper Tantrums”

This fits in the “stuff you can’t make up category.”

After obtaining an agreement with Mexico (and the jury is still out on it’s effectiveness), you’d think the Democrats would either commend the President or at least keep their mouths shut.

But, that’s only because  you don’t live in the parallel universe, like Nancy Pelosi. Madam Botox chastised the President for “recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor to the south.” Our close friend that has taken millions of our jobs, encouraged its citizens to illegally enter the US, facilitates illegals from Central America coming to the US, works to undermine US elections, is a major source for drugs and opposes us at the UN? That good friend?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Saturday hit parts of President Trump’s deal with Mexico on stopping migrant flows after he threatened to slap tariffs on the country — saying that Trump was engaged in “threats and temper tantrums.”

“President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor to the south,” she said in a statement.

“Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy,” she said

Trump announced Friday that the U.S. and Mexico had reached a deal, after he had previously threatened to slap 5 percent tariffs on all incoming goods from Mexico — a warning that had sparked concern from both Democrats and Republicans about the trade deal negotiated between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

According to a joint declaration issued by the State Department and Mexico late Friday, Mexico will take “unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.”

The U.S. will also expand its “Remain-in Mexico” policy of returning asylum applicants to Mexico while their claims are processed. The U.S. committed to accelerate asylum claims while Mexico said it will “offer jobs, healthcare and education according to its principles.”

Pelosi said Democrats are “deeply disappointed” by the expansion of “Remain-in Mexico” and said it violates the rights of asylum-seekers, and fails to address the root causes of migration flows from Central America. She also promised that Congress would continue to put pressure on the administration on immigration.

“Congress will continue to hold the Trump Administration accountable for its failures to address the humanitarian situation at our southern border,” she said. “President Trump must stop sabotaging good-faith, constructive, and bipartisan efforts in Congress to address this complex problem in a humane manner that honors and respects our most cherished national values.”

She also called on the administration to “do much more to cooperate in a meaningful way with Mexico in cracking down on smuggling networks.”

“It’s failure to do so thus far is unconscionable and irresponsible,” she said.

    Just like drugs and alcohol, too much Botox can destroy your mind.

    For every conservative thought leader they strike down a 100k+ followers will simply leave the platform. Me I have not been on FB but long enough to read their TOS and quit the system. Looking at a platform called MeWe.com, have an account and will see what I can do with it. No algorithms, censors, etc. Certain services are $$ based.
