President Trump scored a big win last week after his weeks-long confrontation with Mexico over our neighbor’s lax enforcement of its southern border, and it’s left his critics sputtering.
They’re scrambling to find some way of containing what is a clear Trump triumph—and their flailing about denies the obvious: Trump played high-stakes poker and won a big round with Mexico on border security.
Media elites, well, many just deny it.
The voters, though— and I don’t mean the “Twitter Democrats,” but voters of all ages and ideologies—are a pretty smart bunch. They know, generally, that tariffs are a lousy idea in terms of economic growth. They know too that tariffs can be a blunt instrument of national power in confrontations unrelated to economic growth.
Trump’s record may be mixed, but not last week. Last week, he won big.
He should resume in full his push for immigration reform and border security talks with Democrats right now.
It might actually work.Read More »

A funny thing has happened to Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and other Democrats on their way to opposing President Trump’s border wall. They’ve forgotten their own past.
Time and again, Democrats have voted to fund border security. And, just a few weeks ago, they agreed to spend nearly $2 billion toward construction of the very physical barrier that President Trump has repeatedly called for.
But now, Pelosi calls the wall an “immorality” that is the “least effective way to protect the border.” And she, along with Schumer, have drawn a line in the sand by saying that they will oppose any funding for the wall.
But if a physical barrier at our southern border is such an immorality, do they want to tear down the hundreds of miles of border fencing that already exist along the US-Mexico border?
Don’t expect an answer to this question anytime soon.Read More »
