I have a friend who was a lawyer on one of these teams for a very large US plastic/paper bag manufacturer, they negotiated for months, under the threat of cartels kidnapping factory employees and/or destroying the facilities. They eventually reached a deal of a one time payment, he didnt tell me the amount, but said it was 7 figures.


This is actually illegal for US companies to do, but its become part of doing business in certain parts of Mexico today.
So in hindsight Trump's policies are now funding the drug cartels. idiocracy strikes again!

Why do we need to bring a country to it's knees?

We INTENTIONALLY nurtured China into prosperity.
