House Speaker Nancy Pelosi derided President Donald Trump Saturday for leveraging potential tariffs to convince Mexico to strengthen its border as more “threats and temper tantrums.”

Pelosi, who has been engaging the president in a war of words all week, suggested there was little diplomatic gain in the brief stand-off or the deal itself, the Washington Examiner reported.

After saying he would impose a 5% tariff on imports if Mexico did not act to fortify its border with the United States and prevent further illegal border crossings, Mexico agreed after a flurry of negotiations and Trump declared victory Friday night.

But it was no victory according to Pelosi.

“President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor to the south,” Pelosi told reporters. “Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy.”

Earlier this week, Pelosi reportedly said that she wasn’t keen on impeaching the president because she’d rather see him “in prison.” Trump fired back at Pelosi, saying he was aghast that she would make such statements while he was out of country on an official visit to Great Britain and called the speaker a “nasty, vindictive, horrible person” while coining a new nickname for the congresswoman: “Nervous Nancy.”

But the Trump administration believed it had to take action given the escalation of the border crisis and the projection from the Department of Homeland Security that more than a million people will be detained at the U.S.-Mexico border in 2019, if the current trends remain unchanged.

The negotiated deal with Mexico is potentially far-reaching.

According to a State Department news release:

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.

The deal also requires that illegal immigrants entering the United States from Mexico “will be rapidly returned to Mexico where they may await the adjudication of their asylum claims.”

The latter requirement left Pelosi “deeply disappointed” and she said sending illegal refugees back where they came from “violates the rights of asylum seekers under U.S. law and fails to address the root causes of Central American migration.”

    No, unrestricted access the the U.S. and perhaps some dem donations to the Mexican cartels is the way to negotiate with Mexico.

    Nancy,
    How about you open your doors to the 11,000 Illegal Aliens. Feed them, give them money, pay for their medical, buy them passes for transportation or a car, buy them clothes and shoes. Find them jobs where the business owner can be fined per head.
    Buy them Cervezas, carne asada and tortillas. Buy them several BBQ’s.
    Allow them to swim in Your pool

    These Democrats are so pissed off that Mexico agreed to Trumps terms because it just further proves that he should win the election in 2020. He could find a cure for cancer and they would find something to complain about. They are just whining assholes.

    It sounds like Trump got his way this time, and it sounds like Pelosi didn’t challenge that opinion. So why would she criticize Trump’s diplomacy when he’s winning?

    Awwwww, the little libearal witch is upset because Trumps Tactics worked with Mexico and they are finally starting to do something about these illegals cutting through their country to got to ours. Poor little leftist A** holes are angry because Trump gets another “Win” against them. they are and have been trying so hard to go against the POTUS and let these “migrants” enter the country (and make things here in the US even worse than they are now..) and Trump has found a way to F**k them even harder than ever…lol,lol,lol… this is why we elected him, we wanted a guy with brains and who can look at a wall and not think “OK, thats it, i cant go over or around it, im giving up!” no, he sees it and says, “OK, So now I have to find a way to get past this thing…” and he does it!

    See dems? THIS is why we elected Trump! Anyone else, Dem OR GOP from the swamp would have given up on the border long ago, like they ALWAYS have…. Not Donald, He doesnt give up.
    He couldn’t get the tratior democrats to help with the border, so he went around them and got Mexico to help.

  27. abolishliberalism

    June 10, 2019 at 7:38 am

    Think of this everyone…. POTUS Trump couldn’t get any border help from the democrats so he actually HAD to go get help from ANOTHER country!! HE had to threaten Mexico’s president with tariffs to get them to help keep these illegals away from our borders by blocking them at his border and Mexico said, OK, No problem. Now imagine that… meanwhile all the Democrats are pissed off as hell over it because they cant do anything about it but try and make Trump look bad for doing this… lol when in actuality, the ONLY reason Trump did all this was because the Dems tried to stonewall him on the border crisis , even going as far as to say “It was all a manufactured” crisis and not as bad as Trump was saying it was… lol
