President Trump took a victory lap Friday, after striking a deal with Mexico, who agreed to help stop the flow of migrants into the U.S.
Trump had threatened to unleash tariffs on Mexico this week if action was not taken.
….stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border. This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!

Many are calling this negotiation a big win for President Trump.
Watch the video:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to Twitter, where he not only mocked President Trump’s negotiation, but also the very real crisis at the border itself.
This is an historic night!@realDonaldTrump has announced that he has cut a deal to “greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States.”
Now that that problem is solved, I’m sure we won’t be hearing any more about it in the future. https://t.co/DNNfbevkGP

Schumer’s callous and partisan words were met swiftly with a backlash from Trump supporters, who wasted no time pointing out Schumer’s snark, hypocrisy, and obstruction regarding border security.
@SenSchumer was the guy in high school who thought he was the smartest kid in the room; unhappily he never grew up. Does anyone actually like snark?

He tried to something that congress has ignored, so historic or not, at least he is trying to improve the situation. What have done other than obstruct Chuck?

An excellent accomplishment to add to the Presidents list. We are witnessing a master negotiator and problem solver in action. Oh, BTW, the Dow had a 1168+ point week!

You're so politically diseased that you've lost your soul. You'd rather watch Americans lose their jobs and wages, or die from drug overdoses and gang violence, or be killed by drunken illegal migrants in hit-and-runs, then celebrate a victory for our nation's border security.

I think the words you are looking for are "Thank you."

Senator Schumer used to be against illegal immigration. Back before he had to be woke to please the extreme left

My guess is that we will stop hearing about immigration right after we stop hearing about Russian collusion, obstruction, and the Mueller Report.
