How would Trump deal with a potential loss of 6 million jobs or more? Is it worth destroying the economies of Michigan, California, and Texas?
All this … over a wall.
Yes, Mexico's economy is certainly going to suffer if Mexican products cannot be imported into the U.S. At this point, net migration from Mexico is near zero, as there are as many Mexicans leaving the U.S. as there are coming in. But what has driven millions of immigrants over the border in previous years? A search for economic opportunity, a better life. If Mexico's economy worsens, we will see a reversal of recent migration patterns. Because, while Trump pressures Mexico by cutting off trade, Mexicans won't be able to find jobs in Mexico, which will send them here.
So while all of us anti-Trump think he should not be president because of his hateful speech and rhetoric, Trump supporters should just ask themselves one simple question: Is he qualified to deliver on his vague promises to you? On any?
