A spokesman for the Mexican president claims they did talk about payment for the wall and the president made it clear Mexico won’t pay for the wall. But maybe Trump told his translator not to tell him anything he didn’t like.

Always has been.

I’m not sure if you’re serious or not.

Bachmann lost her mind years ago.
 August 31, 2016 at 3:30pm
Bachmann really said that none of the other GOP candidates could beat Hillary? I’d argue the opposite. Almost all the other candidates would be doing better then Trump and a few of them (Kasich, Rubio, and maybe Walker) would be beating Hillary. There’s a reason democrats were rooting for Trump to be the GOP nominee.
Disagree all you want; they didn't make it now, did they?
If they couldn't then, they couldn't now.

Japan is s country of over 100 million but has only a dozen or so gun murders a year. So their gun control works pretty well. Anyone can get a gun easily here and we have thousands of gun murders every year. I’m sure most Japanese prefer their guns laws and lack of gun violence.
And we American prefer our freedoms and liberties as guaranteed us in our Constitution.
I believe Japan would still have a very low gun murder rate even if there were more guns and every form of freedom has a price.
The Japanese can also look to historical precedent. Under the Tokugawa, the manufacture and possession of firearms was forbidden for over two hundred years. For further enlightenment, see Noel Perrin's "Giving up the Gun."
Japan is defended by Americans with guns.
Japan has a higher suicide rate than the US. They don't use guns to off themselves.
They choose to die another violent way.
you don't GET it,it's not the presence or absence of guns in Japan that is the cause of their low "gun crime" rates,it's their CULTURE. the Japanese are overwhelmingly law-abiding,and have many generations of subservience to authority,unlike Americans. They also do not have a lot of black people.("Oooh,that's raycist". there,took care of that for ya.)
Correlation is not causation. There are dozens of reasons why Japanese crime rates are low. There are many more examples of violent crime RISING in countries after the confiscation or banning of firearms.
Japan is also a homogeneous country. They don't have to worry about defending themselves against crime committed by minorities or illegal immigrants, unlike this country.
I'll also remind you that North Korea has strict gun control, too. I'm sure their citizens are delighted that only the government has access to guns. The fact is if Japan's government ever became authoritarian the citizens would be screwed. That is the whole point of the 2nd amendment. Unlike you liberal elitists, the founders actually trusted citizens enough to allow them to keep and bear arms. When you can guarantee me that I will never have to deal with violent criminals or an oppressive government, then I will give up my guns. Until then, hell no.
@CrazyTravis, Given that America's cities with the highest gun homicide rates have ALL been governed by Democrats for a generation or more, perhaps the problems go far deeper than just access to guns.
Perhaps it has to do more with no economic advancement, poor schools, high unemployment, high crime, and political exploitation and corruption.
Are you okay with people being murdered by other means? It doesn't matter the TOOL used.

So how many of you could recite the whole anthem from memory? I know the first few lines and the last couple lines but get lost in the middle. There’s a reason why singers often mess up the lyrics to the anthem. Give it a shot before you make fun of these students.
I have a fence around my property and if you don't you're the unusual. A wall is nothing more than a fence and in my state if you cross mine to rob me of life or property you won't be around long. Promise.

Cuba is a nice place for s vacation and pretty cheap too. Also opening up Cuba gives American business several million new potential customers.

The Cuban embargo has always been pointless and helped Castro (by giving him the US as a scapegoat for Cubas problems) more than it hurt him. The only reason the embargo lasted so long is both parties pandered to Cuban American voters in swing state Florida. Obama ended the embargo because he’s a lame duck and doesn’t have to worry about re election and young Cuban Americans support ending the embargo.
FaceChewer, Then how has all of that available free trade with the remainder of the world been going for the Cuban people? The embargo involved only the U.S. and one other rather tiny nation that I just can't think of at the moment. That makes the U.S. the scapegoat because Cuba and the remainder of the world had virtually no trade. Well, except mostly by the Soviet Union and some with China.
The young Cubans don't remember what freedom is like. They don't know the difference. The older Cuban Exiles know and understand. They are the ones that lost the most and they are opposed to giving him any money. If you don't know the difference, then it doesn't mean anything to you.

Mccains opponent Kelli Ward never stood s chance. She was a state legislator from Lake Havasu which is across the state from Phoenix. So she was unknown in the Phoenix metro area where most Arizona voters are.

The main question is what to do with the 11 million illegals currently still in this country. The choices are somehow deport them all, give then a path to citizenship, or pretend they don’t exist and do nothing (our policy for the last 30 years). If Trump stays with the deport them all policy he keeps his supporters happy but turns of Hispanic voters and independents who realize it’s impossible to deport them all. If he says he’d offer some sort of amnesty (which he implied he might last week) he’ll anger his base who might be disgusted enough by his flip flop to stay home on Election Day. So he will probably opt for option 3- do nothing but deport criminals (like Obama has done as Trump admitted).
The other main question is what to do about the millions who have come here legally? Isn't there a moral problem of rewarding bad behavior? I think everyone who came here illegally should get their money back and be paid damages.
Crazy : To say nothing of the future 11 million illegals who will soon be here if we don't control our borders NOW. This is not rocket science .

So Trump was in Washington state today then he’s going to Mexico then Arizona tomorrow. What do all 3 places have in common? None are swing states so none matter in November (though AZ is a lot tighter then Trump would like). I think Trump is charging his campaign $1000 a mile for use of his private jet.
Trump wasted money on sending a limo to pickup a doctors letter. He's a limousine liberal.
He held a rally in prime time in a 10,000 seat stadium in a state he is down 19 pts. How is he not throwing the election. The amount of real estate he will get and the deals he will be able to make after he loses will make him billions.

Yup a check for 7 pesos.

Now that Trumps going to Mexico I’m suddenly for building a wall. But only if we can build it tonight to keep Trump in Mexico.
He'll probably get early parole due to overcrowding or some other prog induced nonsense. He should be locked up though.

It’s nice the dying woman could at least see her grandchild via ultrasound before she died. I can kind of relate my mother in law died when my wife was pregnant with our first child and my dad died while she was pregnant with our second kid. We decided to stop having kids for the safety of our surviving parents.
Not sure why someone would have given you a thumbs down for that one. I see the last line as a way to deal with the pain in humor form.
I am sorry for the loss of the parents. One day I hope you will all see each other again :-)
