    The most important thing is to keep the House and win the Senate. Yes, the presidency is a crisis, but control of the both congressional chambers is the grand prize, something Gingrich taught Republicans.

    Democrats need to stop worry about the 43-44% of Americans that will never vote for them, and start worrying about pleasing the 56% that gave them the House back.

    Gingrich understood this. He looked at any situation and always asked "what does the base want?" and based his strategy on that. He whipped the GOP into shape and transformed them from miserable losers that hadn't held the House in a generation, to a party of front line warriors, out to please their base, and who were rewarded for it 12 years in a row.

    If we have both the Senate and House, then Trump can't get jack done. He can't appoint anybody to the courts, he can't pass fascist laws, and he can't set the nations agenda. Both chambers can also use synchronized parliamentary tricks to cripple his powers, such as refusing to hold SOTU's in either chambers, and refusing to fill his cabinet with conservatives.

    Food for thought.

    to jump into the hands of the border patrol to claim the asylum they seek. The democrats offered almost no money to build
    the wall needed to prevent illegal crossings forcing Trump to gather funds in other ways.

    All is well, Mexico signed an agreement to alleviate the problem, hopefully it will minimize illegality on the border. By the end of
    Trump's first term he'll have sufficiently built most of the wall needed to deter what has happened in the last three months &
    along with the Mexican agreement a sane border atmosphere will be established!

    I seriously have to question why anyone could put their politics before keeping our country safe.

    Why for the "greater good" of course! (and about 100,000 new voters a month ... asylum is all the rage!)

    Shipping from Mexico rushed before tariff threat lifted
    Shipping from Mexico rushed before tariff threat lifted

    TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Before U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday abruptly suspended the threat of tariffs against Mexico, companies were rushing cars, appliances and construction materials across the border to beat Monday’s deadline.

    Mexican-made tiles were piled up on the pavement next to a warehouse in New Mexico. A furniture factory and a jalapeno exporter fretted about a huge financial hit next week. And hundreds of semi-trailers carrying medical devices, televisions and Toyota pickups idled in line Friday at the truck crossing in Tijuana.

    On Friday night, Trump tweeted that the tariffs were indefinitely suspended and that Mexico had agreed to take “strong measures” to stem the tide of Central American migrants heading through Mexico to the U.S.

    Mexico reported yesterday they moved 6,000 national guard to their Southern Border; and they also began arresting immigration activists previously identified as participating in an effort to aide migrants traveling through the country.

    Additionally, according to Mexican officials and negotiators working to find a solution, the Mexican government has begun freezing the financial assets of immigration groups working to undermine immigration law.

    U.S.-Mexico Joint Declaration

    The United States and Mexico met this week to address the shared challenges of irregular migration, to include the entry of migrants into the United States in violation of U.S. law. Given the dramatic increase in migrants moving from Central America through Mexico to the United States, both countries recognize the vital importance of rapidly resolving the humanitarian emergency and security situation. The Governments of the United States and Mexico will work together to immediately implement a durable solution.

    As a result of these discussions, the United States and Mexico commit to:

    Mexican Enforcement Surge


    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. Mexico is also taking decisive action to dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks. Additionally, the United States and Mexico commit to strengthen bilateral cooperation, including information sharing and coordinated actions to better protect and secure our common border.

    Migrant Protection Protocols

    The United States will immediately expand the implementation of the existing Migrant Protection Protocols across its entire Southern Border. This means that those crossing the U.S. Southern Border to seek asylum will be rapidly returned to Mexico where they may await the adjudication of their asylum claims.

    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.

    The United States commits to work to accelerate the adjudication of asylum claims and to conclude removal proceedings as expeditiously as possible.

    Further Actions

    Both parties also agree that, in the event the measures adopted do not have the expected results, they will take further actions. Therefore, the United States and Mexico will continue their discussions on the terms of additional understandings to address irregular migrant flows and asylum issues, to be completed and announced within 90 days, if necessary.

    Ongoing Regional Strategy

    The United States and Mexico reiterate their previous statement of December 18, 2018, that both countries recognize the strong links between promoting development and economic growth in southern Mexico and the success of promoting prosperity, good governance and security in Central America. The United States and Mexico welcome the Comprehensive Development Plan launched by the Government of Mexico in concert with the Governments of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to promote these goals. The United States and Mexico will lead in working with regional and international partners to build a more prosperous and secure Central America to address the underlying causes of migration, so that citizens of the region can build better lives for themselves and their families at home.

    Respectfully, but do you actually believe in the crap you are trying to sell?

    America won today because the WH gave MX. a deal they couldn't refuse or it would have been economic suicide for the people of their country. Be happy for our country, but also be happy for the working Mexicans who needed their government to bend for their sake.
    So, besides this one deal, what other ones has Trump successfully negotiated?
