The most amazing thing happened the other day. During the campaign, Trump talked about how he was going to make Mexico pay for a wall between Mexico and the United States. Desperate to get votes, ya? I would say so. Well, he won, and now that the world thinks America is going down the drain, China wants to play the hero’s game. The reality is they are just trying to destroy America, but since the baby boomers have given all our money to China, it’s not too difficult for China to use that money to economically manipulate even our neighbors. In short, the amazing thing that happened the other day is that they have purchased MoneyGram, the preferred technology Mexicans use to send income back to Mexico from the United States.
So now, how the heck is Trump going to tax those remittances 20% at the border? How is Trump going to ask China for the data on money being sent via MoneyGram that Alibaba now owns and expect that the amount will be accurate? Well, here’s how. China is obviously going to bend over for Trump because Trump is the greatest President of all time and impervious to making mistakes. He also doesn’t need to sleep, and he doesn’t need to use the bathroom because he can utilize 100% of the food he takes in. Oh wait! That’s the fictional version of Kim Jong Un in The Interview with James Franco and Seth Rogen. Yeah, no, Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing at all.
So, what’s good about this. Well, China now controls the United States’ ability to tax income leaving the United States for Mexico, which means that Mexicans can see that China is treating them better than we are. That means that they’ll leave the United States. If you’re someone who thinks Mexicans should leave, hallelujah. However, if you’re a human, you’ll realize we rely on an immigrant worker population and that China now controls one of our neighbors and also happens to stay up late at night trying to figure out more ways to destroy us. So, well, nothing is good about this.
Here’s the reality. Trump can’t build a wall. He’s not going to do it. He’s not going to make Mexican government pay for it because there’ll be no tax on money leaving the United States because China won’t allow it.
