It’s beginning to become quite obvious that President Donald Trump would make one heck of a poker opponent.
The man stepped onstage during the early republican debates and, with a straight face, completely annihilated every opponent that they threw in front of him. One of his most fearsome foes during that time was Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky and son of libertarian icon Ron Paul, who Trump eviscerated by openly admitting that the two had previously discussed financial campaign support for the Bluegrass State’s Tea Party favorite.
Trump literally just took the wind out of the sails of who many believed would be the republican favorite by admitting that he could buy him.
The eventual-President’s nonchalance was on full display when he finally had a chance to sink his teeth into Hillary Clinton, whom he declared should be in jail as a direct retort to some absurd claim that the former First Lady made.
That’s the point when American ears began to perk up in earnest, and we all realized that Donald Trump was two things:
First, he wasn’t in “The Club”, whatever that exactly entails, and wasn’t going to be bullied by those entrenched in it.
And secondly, he has no time for bluffing.
So when the President declared that he would be sending the U.S. military to the border to protect it against a 1,700 person horde of illegal migrants, things, predictably, ended up going his way.
A caravan of Central American migrants whose trek across Mexico infuriated President Donald Trump has decided not to travel to the US border, leaders said Tuesday.
“We will wrap up our work in Mexico City,” said Irineo Mujica, the head of the migrant advocacy group People Without Borders (Pueblo sin Fronteras).
“We have support teams at the border if there are people who need assistance there, but they would have to travel on their own,” he told AFP in the town of Matias Romero, in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.
The just over 1,000 migrants who currently make up the caravan — many traveling in families of up to 20 people — have been camped in the southern town since the weekend, deciding their next move in the face of daily attacks from Trump.
That, my fellow Americans, is how you win a game of chicken.
And while President Trump may be accused of bullying or stubbornness by the easily-triggered liberals, his unwillingness to bend the law of the United States to capitulate the bleeding hearts of the world only serves to reinforce his belief in American greatness. We cannot survive without sovereignty. It is the only true way to preserve the American identity, and allowing our borders to be compromised as they have been for the last few decades is wholly unacceptable.
