Just more Trump Rhetoric for his campaign?

Would Mexico retaliate is some way if it happens?

President Donald Trump said his administration may impose a “toll” on cars crossing into the U.S. from Mexico to finance construction of his promised wall on the southern border.

“They’re going to pay at the border, at the gate, cars going through, we’re going to do a toll -- or we may do a toll,” Trump said during an event in Yuma, Arizona, where he touted construction of the wall.

The president has long faced criticism that he has failed to meet a campaign promise to make Mexico pay for the border wall.

Given the fact that Mexico doesn't exactly have the balls, or ability to deal with their own problems. I don't honestly care.
Most people didn't really care for the wall and it was seen as a nice little gesture to ensure some form of security for our own citizens. Then people came out and called the wall, not the people who supported it's construction mind you. But the wall itself, racist.

And that's when all of the normal detractors lost the plot.

But we're talking if there's going to be a toll now on the border?

Oh no no, you're very much wrong there. People definitely called Trump and his supporters racist for making something as pointless as the wall their main campaign issue. An inanimate object can't be racist.

When Trump comes along and tells poor white people that all of their problems come from illegal immigrants and a gigantic monument to his stupidity will reverse all that, I don't know what else to call them but racist and idiotic.

So he couldn't fulfill his promise to have Mexico pay for the wall, so he had Bannon and a few other of his representatives illegally defraud his supporters in a giant cash grab, now that's blown up he's going to pretend Mexico will pay for it again by claiming he'll a
add a tax he doesn't have the power to add.

Trump supporters are idiots that will believe literally anything.

Let them open a toll if they want. We have toll roads and bridges here in the US. So it should be no problem.

Alright, show me where he said this.

It's also rather racist to believe that the wall was solely put out to fix a problem that somehow only affected whites.

That was his entire campaign pitch. The reason white Americans have it so bad is because of the illegal immigrants and if we just constructed the wall that would all reverse itself.

There's literally thousands of Trump quotes that support that, and I could post them all here and you'd just lazily reject them because you're dishonest and have an agenda.

If you can't even admit Trump tried to blame illegal immigrants for all of our problems, you're just gas lighting.

I don't have to believe it. Bannon and his associates were arrested and charged for fraud.

Their own toll, a raise on any imports/exports. The list of options isn't exactly small.

I just don't think that they'd be worried about it.

So that means you don't have any proof to supply then.

Every person that has ever taken your bait and provided the quotes you insisted didn't exist, you've gaslighted them and refused to accept it. You don't care if he did or didn't, so stop pretending you do.

Nope, Bannon was literally arrested and charged with fraud.

What holes? You're the one claiming Bannon and his associates aren't being charged with fraud for scamming Trump supporters for border wall money that Trump promised Mexico would pay.

Trump sure did hire a lot of criminal dirt bags. Bad judge of character.

What would stop Mexico from charging a toll right back, matching any toll we charge?

I'm not even against charging a toll to cross certain borders. Some US/Canada bridges/tunnels charge a toll. But this would not be funding an actual border road, bridge or tunnel, like those are. It also would not be Mexico paying for the wall. It would more likely be Americans that travel to Mexico paying. And there is little reason to believe Mexico wouldn't also implement such a thing if we did.

If the toll is outlandish, maybe. All in all, it's still a rather big "if" on whether such tolls are going to come into play.

We'll just have to wait at this point.

What did that have to do with anything I posted? Its from 2017 and pretty much just said that Mexico, rightfully, refuses to pay for the wall. Mexico would not be paying for the wall. Mostly Americans and some citizens of some other countries would be paying. More likely, it would simply increase the cost of goods on this side, so more Americans paying for a wall most dont want.

It was not his ENTIRE campaign pitch. It was one of many.

But keep on with your stories. People enjoy reading fables.

No, you can cry about being called out for directly lying to me all you like.
I gave you a chance to prove that you actually had something to back up your claim and now you're stuck throwing the same exact mud that you always end up throwing.

I'm done playing with you for now. So go shed those tears somewhere else.
Go to the Binky thread if you want to continue this insanity of yours. Because I've honestly stopped caring for it.
