    It's as crazy as it can get. The republican candidate is scheduled to have a meeting with the Mexican President. It's hard to imagine any leader granting a stage to the R clown. I guess everyone want's to be mentioned on the nightly news and on social media. Crazy topics will have to include: Asking Mexico to take back their rapists, drug dealers, and other various bad people. The building arrangements and payment details for "The Wall" that Mexico will pay for. Making sure they will have a place to put the returning illegal aliens......

    I'm told the meeting will be private, which means that Trump can put his take on it anyway he wants. It's a publicity stunt for Trump....cameras get ready for the hand shake.

    The other thread is about Trump being God's choice. It is best we keep discussion of Trump's Mexico visit in this thread and not the God thread.

    Hillary Clinton said this of Trump's visit:

    "What ultimately matters is what Donald Trump says to voters in Arizona, not Mexico, and whether he remains committed to the splitting up of families and deportation of millions."

    It will be interesting to see how he spins the results of the meeting.

    I watched the joint press conference/statements with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and "President Trump", both standing side by side at their presidential looking podiums. President Enrique Pena Nieto's approval rating in Mexico is 23 percent. "President Trump's" approval rating is much lower at 3 percent. They both got what they wanted out of this photo op. Trump spoke about his love for the "amazing Mexican people"...and blah, blah, blah.

    Trump will speak triumphantly tonight on his new immigration plan in Arizona. The media will suck it all in as the changed Trump.

    Since Trump appears to not have a calculator I'll give him some information. It would cost at least 75,000,000,000,000 that's 75 trillion dollars to deport the illegal Mexicans.

    Well 75 trillion to get rid of the Mexicans (using your numbers). How much more to send the blacks back ? I'll estimate 150 trillion.... that should whiten this damned country up. Oh yes, we still have the Asians, the Middle easterners, and damn..... where can we send the Original Americans, the Indians. It sure will be expensive to make this country entirely white. Then they will start to question who's the whitest. Maybe for 600 trillion we could whiten the whole damned place up. Not to be concerned with the destination countries absorbing all of our returned goods. If it wasn't just silly it would be pretty damned sad. Not that the whites have any rights to this land that was stolen from the Indians in approx. 1492 / 1900...... A joke at best but the master race must be given what they deserve. Who'll pay the tab...... D Trump will spend then not pay. A joke at best.

    Not sure what your point is TJ but mine is he spews out impossible propaganda to gather the right wing nuts to support him. A year ago I said that Trump will be a force to reckon with because he will resonate with all the years of right wing propaganda blaming the poor for being poor and telling people they can be anything they want to be while flying around in the super jet liner tattooed Trump.

    I think you mistakenly added three extras zeros. $75 trillion is a ridiculously high number. $75 billion would be more plausible.

    PS -- Trump has estimated $8 billion. Others have estimated a number as high as $42 billion. The Washington Post settles on $25 billion.

    Trump's soft spoken statement in Mexico was a sharp contrast from the "yelling from a teleprompter" a few hours later in Phoenix. Donald Trump's teleprompter tone of a consistent yelling monotone for an hour and 15 minutes wears on you. He, of course, made some outlandish claims and exaggerations that are getting so common place they are no longer even challenged by the media. I couldn't stand listening to Sarah Palin's screeching voice, and now I'm just about there with Teleprompter Trump yelling all the time.

    Trump's Phoenix 10 point speech on immigration (transcript courtesy of LA Times) has many components that are already existing policies, except that Trump is going to do them quicker and come down even harder on "illegals". On the deportation of 11 million undocumented workers he emphasized that the list will be prioritized with a heavy emphasis on criminals. That's what Obama is doing now...quietly. However, he also said no one would be exempt from the law.

    "In a Trump administration all immigration laws will be enforced, will be enforced. As with any law enforcement activity, we will set priorities. But unlike this administration, no one will be immune or exempt from enforcement. And ICE and Border Patrol officers will be allowed to do their jobs the way their jobs are supposed to be done. Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation. That is what it means to have laws and to have a country. Otherwise we don't have a country."

    "Immigration law doesn't exist for the purpose of keeping criminals out. It exists to protect all aspects of American life. The work site, the welfare office, the education system, and everything else. That is why immigration limits are established in the first place. If we only enforced the laws against crime, then we have an open border to the entire world. We will enforce all of our immigration laws."

    "For those here illegally today, who are seeking legal status, they will have one route and one route only. To return home and apply for reentry like everybody else, under the rules of the new legal immigration system that I have outlined above."

    "We will break the cycle of amnesty and illegal immigration. We will break the cycle. There will be no amnesty."

    However, towards the end of his speech he said this:

    "Importantly, in several years when we have accomplished all of our enforcement and deportation goals and truly ended illegal immigration for good, including the construction of a great wall, which we will have built in record time. And at a reasonable cost, which you never hear from the government.

    "And the establishment of our new lawful immigration system then and only then will we be in a position to consider the appropriate disposition of those individuals who remain."

    This latter point has confused pundits. While he said earlier in his speech that everyone would have to leave, he invited speculation that not everyone would have to go back and get in line.

    I should have mentioned his Number One point...building the wall. Quoting Trump:

    We will build a great wall along the southern border.

    And Mexico will pay for the wall. One hundred percent. They don't know it yet, but they're going to pay for it. And they're great people and great leaders but they're going to pay for the wall. On day one, we will begin working on intangible, physical, tall, power, beautiful southern border wall.

    We will use the best technology, including above and below ground sensors that's the tunnels. Remember that, above and below.

    Above and below ground sensors. Towers, aerial surveillance and manpower to supplement the wall, find and dislocate tunnels and keep out criminal cartels and Mexico you know that, will work with us. I really believe it. Mexico will work with us. I absolutely believe it. And especially after meeting with their wonderful, wonderful president today. I really believe they want to solve this problem along with us, and I'm sure they will.

    However, in Trump's meeting with Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto earlier in the day, he said that the topic of paying for the wall was not discussed. President Nieto disagreed with Trump on that point, but only after the press conference.
