Europe is offering negative interest rate bonds, if anyone feels that is a better deal, go for it. When you look at the rest of the world and the way things are going economically, financially, and in terms of government, America is still easily the best house in the worst neighborhood.

Traitorous Democrats are at it again.
To me, anyone who would willingly undermine the constitution is the traitor.

Simple put: the president (any president) only has emergency powers because they were delegated to that office by the congress. Abusing those powers to thwart the congress's sole responsibility to allocate funds is one sure way of getting those powers pulled from the presidency, and looks to me like an impeachable offence as well.

If you can not see this, you need to go back to high school, you failed civics.

C'mon libs, pull your heads out. Even as far back as 2015, Trumps plan was to increase tariffs, take it out of the trade deficit and impound remittances to get the money.
Did anyone think they were going to just write a check?

Not according to his campaign website, which said Mexico would make a “$5-10 billion one time payment.”

Revisionist history doesn’t work when you can just google “wayback machine” in less than 3 seconds.

Traitorous is the executive branch usurping the authority of congress to appropriate funds. That money was allocated for the military, not Trumps pet project.

Wow how far the GOP/Trumpers have fallen. Now you don’t even care about the Constitution and separation of powers.

Hey let’s go back in time and see what kind of comments may have been made about Obama performing acts outside of Constitutional boundaries, hmmm?

That should be fun!!!

Ooohhh! Here’s one!
