It’s On … GOP nominee Donald Trump to make historic campaign trip to Mexico Wednesday and meet with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
The WAPO is reporting that Donald Trump will travel to Mexico City today and meet with with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, just prior to Trump’s much anticipated immigration policy speech in Arizona later today. Late Tuesday night on his Twitter feed, Mr. Trump said he had “accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow.” President Nieto had invited both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to Mexico; however, only one has shown the leadership and where-with-all to take him up on his offer. Like him or hate him, he certainly has CO-JONES! Despite previous death threats due to Donald’s tough talk regarding Mexico, illegal immigration, building a border wall and making Mexico pay for it, Trump is going anyways. This should be interesting, oh to be a fly on the wall.
According to reports, Trump will be accompanied on the Mexico trip by former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican.
Donald Trump will travel to Mexico City on Wednesday for a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, just hours before he delivers a high-stakes speech in Arizona to clarify his views on immigration policy.
Peña Nieto last Friday invited both Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to visit Mexico, his office said in a statement provided to The Washington Post on Tuesday night.
Trump, sensing an opportunity, decided over the weekend to accept the invitation and push for a visit this week, according to the people in the United States and Mexico familiar with the discussions.
Late Tuesday, Trump and the Mexican president confirmed on Twitter that they will meet Wednesday.
UPDATE I: Mexico rages against Trump visit.
One can only shake their heads at the reaction of those in Mexico that are coming unglued by Donald Trump’s visit. Amigo’s, it is your president that invited Trump. I wonder what they are afraid of?
Reaction was fast and furious among those in the Mexican political cognoscenti.
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox apologized on behalf of the country during an interview on CNN, accusing both Trump and Peña Nieto for using the occasion to exploit their own political opportunities.
“It’s a very opportunistic move, and I hope U.S. public opinion, U.S. citizens can see this and finally, and finally see what is behind Trump, this false prophet that is just cheating everybody,” Fox said during the Skype chat on “New Day” on Wednesday, adding that it is “a desperate move and I don’t see how it can work at all.”
The only way that inviting Trump makes sense for Mexico would be if Peña Nieto gets the Republican nominee to apologize for his past statements about Mexicans, Fox said, admitting that he did not understand the thinking of the current Mexican president while pronouncing Trump’s decision to visit “very smart.”
Fox had also reacted fiercely to the news Tuesday night, telling Trump that “[t]here is no turning back” from his offensive remarks about Mexicans, Muslims and others that he said “have led you to the pit where you are today.”
Added Fox, who previously apologized to the candidate after declaring that Mexico was not going to pay for “that f—-ing wall”: “¡Adiós, Trump!”
Daily Commentary – Thursday, August 25, 2016 – So is Donald Trump’s Stance of Immigration Softening?
- Did he finally realize that there was no way to actually deport nearly 11 million of them?
Remember when you used to live in the United States of America, a country based on the rule of law? Hillary Clinton panders to illegals who she obviously thinks should have greater rights that law abiding US citizens. Who would have ever imagined that the American people would tolerate an election being rigged by illegals who had no right to even be in the United States? That’s exactly what an apathetic America is doing.
Hillary Clinton is enlisting undocumented “Dreamers” into a new voter registration drive aimed at signing up sympathetic voters with warnings that Donald Trump’s immigration plans could result in their deportation – though the Dreamers themselves cannot legally vote.
Clinton’s national voter registration program, called “Mi Sueño, Tu Voto/My Dream, Your Vote,” was announced Sunday, on the four-year anniversary of the 2012 order that temporarily shielded from deportation some young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
The 730,000 young people known as Dreamers are prohibited from voting. However, they remain a powerful political organizing force, and the Clinton campaign hopes to use them to convince Latino and other households to go to the polls for the Democratic nominee.
Organizers will remind voters that a Trump presidency would end the Dreamer program, according to the campaign, which is already at risk after a June Supreme Court effectively killed Obama’s efforts to give legal status to some of the 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.
The program is part of an aggressive effort by Clinton’s campaign to woo the record 27.3 million Latinos eligible to vote in 2016. Polling shows Trump doing worse with Latino voters than any GOP presidential candidate since 1996. Much of the new effort will focus on battleground states including Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina and Florida, where Latinos and other immigrants make up an important part of the voting base.
BREXIT … ITS OFFICIAL, BRITAIN VOTES TO LEAVE EU!!!
The will of the people … In a historic decision, Britain has voted to leave the European Union by a 52% to 48% margin.
Britain has voted to leave the European Union, a historic decision sure to reshape the nation’s place in the world, rattle the Continent and rock political establishments throughout the West.
Not long after the vote tally was completed, Prime Minister David Cameron, who led the campaign to remain in the bloc, appeared in front of 10 Downing Street to announce that he planned to step down by October, saying the country deserved a leader committed to carrying out the will of the people.
The stunning turn of events was accompanied by a plunge in the financial markets, with the value of the British pound and stock prices plummeting.
The margin of victory startled even proponents of a British exit. The “Leave” campaign won by 52 percent to 48 percent. More than 17.4 million people voted in the referendum on Thursday to sever ties with the European Union, and about 16.1 million to remain in the bloc.
UPDATE I: PM David Cameron to step down.
David Cameron has resigned, bringing an abrupt end to his six-year premiership, after the British public took the momentous decision to reject his entreaties and turn their back on the European Union.
Just a year after he clinched a surprise majority in the general election, a visibly emotional Cameron, standing outside Number 10 on Friday morning alongside his wife, Samantha, said: “The will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered.”
The prime minister campaigned hard in the divisive referendum on Britain’s relationship with the EU, appearing at hundreds of public events up and down the country to argue that Brexit would be an act of “economic self-harm”.
But a frustrated electorate used the poll to reject the status quo, and, as the Ukip leader, Nigel Farage, described it, “stick two fingers up” at Britain’s politicians.
“I was absolutely clear about my belief that Britain is stronger, safer and better off inside the EU. I made clear the referendum was about this, and this alone, not the future of any single politician, including myself.
“But the British people made a different decision to take a different path. As such I think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction,” Cameron said.
This is most likely just the start, its only a matter of time before other countries have their own referendums and take their countries back.
