Trump Tells Mexico To Pay For The Wall, Gets Laughed Out The Country (Probably)

Aug 31, 2016

Racist taco bowl-enthusiast Donald Trump seems to think his trip to Mexico this afternoon will help him make up lost ground with the Hispanic voters he’s persistently maligned and alienated over the past year.

Not so.

It’s a last ditch political stunt aimed at mid-western white voters; a transparent attempt to signal that he’s not quite as racist as they think he is. 

Trump’s “man-of-action afternoon” in Mexico City is a laughable, desperate attempt to save his failing candidacy — and voters, the media, and the Mexican people are seeing right through it.

(It says it all that Trump reneged on the promise his campaign manager made this morning that he’d do a joint press conference and didn’t bring his traveling press corps.)

Here are some of the headlines Trump’s earned in the hours leading up to tonight’s immigration policy speech, during which he’s sure to reiterate the same hardline anti-immigrant and pro-mass deportation rhetoric and policies he’s espoused for months:
