I love this guy. He says what is on his mind, or on his lips, triggers self-important righteousness warriors from coast to coast. Anger and drama ensue; President Trump continues merrily on his way, leaving a trail of political anguish in his wake as he heads to the next combustive scene of insanity. It’s great!
President Donald Trump stunned his fellow world leaders at the G7 meeting when he said he would ship “25 million” Mexicans to Japan, which would result in Prime Minister Shinzo Abe losing his next election.
During the gathering in Quebec — which ended with Trump leaving early and refusing to sign the traditional joint communique — the president was talking about what he called Europe’s immigration problem when he turned his attention to the Japanese leader.
“Shinzo, you don’t have this problem, but I can send you 25 million Mexicans and you’ll be out of office very soon,” Trump said, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a senior EU official who was in the room.
Ladies and gentlemen…this is a madman!
Frankly, if the United States government officially extended Donald Trump’s offer, I would be first to volunteer. I was born in the this country, I’m a full-fledged productive American citizen, but the prospect of living in Japan is supremely tantalizing. Such a pristine country, beautiful cold climate, heavenly topography, great food, a chill and focused citizenry, and Cholas!
I think President Trump, in spite of all his wise insight, overestimates the disruptive effect of 25 million Mexicans in Japan.
The berserk possibilities are endless, and Mexicans, being an ocean away from the homeland, instead of a river or Greyhound bus away, would have no choice but to assimilate in their new foreign home, and I suspect they might do quite well. Mexican immigrants’ tenacious hold of their homebound culture and customs (in America) is a function of geographic proximity. Thousands of miles of intermediary Pacific saltwater will disrupt that dynamic quite swimmingly.
The United States, less 25 million illegals (and legals), would be better off; Mexico would be better off. But most importantly, 25 million Mexicans would fare the best.
Donald, you’re on to something…can you kick it up to 30?
