PRESIDENT TRUMP came out of the gate like gangbusters during his first week in office. Kudos to him!
He restrained the ham-fisted leftists running the Environmental Protection Agency. He cut off federal aid to law-flaunting leftists running Sanctuary Cities.
He canceled the cash that left-wing Barry had funneled in his waning White House days to Palestinian terrorists.
He revived the Keystone Pipeline. He canceled the horrendous Catch-and-Release policy for illegals.
And Trump declared Israel great again, reversing Barry’s leftist, anti-Semitic tomfoolery.
But there’s one very dumb thing my boy Donald is doing: this business about Mexico paying for a border wall.
Did Israel demand that Mohammedans pay for the walls it’s erected? Lots of good it would have done.
Do you expect your next-door neighbor to buy the deadbolt for your house’s front door?
Nations who want to secure their borders, and all nations should, especially successful ones, must finance their border walls themselves.
That Mexico would pay for the wall was a good campaign slogan, appealing to low-information voters. But the campaign is over. Extend the wall, but don’t expect Mexico to pay for it, and don’t force it via other means.
Keeping your house locked is your own responsibility.
And Mexico should build a wall on its southern border. Don’t expect Guatemala to pay for it.
