Just hours after President Trump announced he will be imposing 5% tariffs on Mexican imports over illegal immigration, Mexico’s president Lopez Obrador sent Trump a letter begging for a meeting to work toward a solution.
But it did not take long for Republican Senators to undermine the Republican president.
The do-nothing Senate Republicans sent Trump a warning Tuesday that they do not support tariffs on Mexican imports.
On Wednesday the US Border Patrol announced that a record 144,000 illegals were apprehended at the border in May.
Republican Senators do not care.
They will not stand with the Republican president.
Instead they undermine him while he is away in Europe.
