Nancy Pelosi’s feud with Donald Trump took a strange turn.
Speaker Pelosi can always be counted on to oppose everything Donald Trump does.
But Nancy Pelosi’s latest attack on Donald Trump backfired in this major way.
Donald Trump recently announced a major agreement with Mexico to try and stem the growing crisis at the Southern Border.
Mexico agreed to deploy more troops to their Southern Border to break up caravans traveling from Central America to the United States.
In addition, Mexico agreed to expand the “remain in Mexico” policy to the entire border from just being used as the three busiest ports of entry.
That policy allows the United States to send asylum seekers to Mexico – instead of releasing them into the United States – while they wait for their asylum claims to be adjudicated.
For the United States’ part, President Trump agreed not to move forward with a threat of imposing five percent tariffs on all Mexican goods.
This enraged Pelosi.
She outrageously claimed Trump conducted foreign policy by “temper tantrum.”
The Daily Caller reports:
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.”
Americans could not believe it.
Donald Trump achieved a tangible victory on one of the biggest issues facing America and Pelosi took time to quibble over the manner in which the President secured the victory.
Pelosi’s hissy fit showed her goal is not to improve the lives of Americans, but instead to tear down the President ahead of his re-election campaign.
