But a tariff will simply raise the price of Mexican goods in the US, meaning American consumers will end up paying for the wall—if it ever gets built.

That Trump is not going to let this opportunity go without making as much money as he can, through his business dealings. Trump is all about himself and nobody else. The critics here have no valid argument to put forth. But to blame somebody else or some left wing conspiracy. David Cay Boyle Johnston is an American investigative journalist and author, a specialist in economics and tax issues, and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting.
He has also known Trump since the 70's; so clearly well-qualified to speak - and write on the subject. For truth seekers, this book will further enlighten you. The die-hard Trump supporters will merely post attacks against the messenger without ever actually reading the book Author Johnston opens by stating that 'the last forty-four presidents all pursued policies that they believed would make for a better America tomorrow. The Trump presidency is about Trump. When he doesn't like what he sees, he sends out nastygram tweets, often in the wee hours.
His life philosophy can be summarized in a single word - revenge. He has left the vast majority of the nearly 4, positions under his control vacant, filling many of the rest with the least qualified and most aggressive 'political termites' who operate in secret, determined to undo government regulations and laws.
The Department of Education is headed by someone with no background in education theory or administration, at HUD - a retired surgeon with no administrative experience or housing expertise, Secretary of Treasury is a Wall Streeter who made much of his fortune foreclosing on homeowners, and EPA is run by a lawyer who vowed to destroy it. Our Surgeon General is now a physician who owned tobacco company stocks. A major source of Trump's influence comes from people who distrust respected news organizations and rely instead on those that have little regard for fact - especially when it comes to Trump.
Two of the leaders - Fox News and Brietbart. He put more than business entities into a supposedly blind trust, that trust consists largely of businesses managed by his two oldest sons.
Trump told 'Forbes' that his sons tell him how much money his businesses are making on an on-going basis. When Trump stays at Mar-a-Lago, his country clubs, or Trump Tower, governments rent rooms, buy meals, and use golf carts for which they pay full retail prices.
Trump has refused to release his tax returns. But Johnson remains the symbolic figurehead of all that went rotten in sport. The guilt left him ostracised and depressed. Johnson is now seeking some kind of redemption. They've buried me so deep it took me 22 years to get out of the hole. But I'm finally coming out of this hole, by the grace of God, and it's time to tell my story. The book has yet to be seen by anyone outside his circle at a small independent publisher; but Johnson believes it will shock the sporting world. Beyond his admission of doping Johnson suggests his drink in Seoul was spiked with a drug he had always avoided.
I wouldn't be that dumb to take anything so close to an Olympic final. And the amount of steroids found in my system could have killed a normal man. I tested positive for Stanozolol but I was using other steroids. A confessed doper becoming the victim of a drug smear is a complicated story — which Johnson says was suddenly simplified when the person who supposedly tampered with his drink, someone he calls "The Mystery Man", approached him. My drink was spiked. I can't go into too much detail here — but it helped me hear what happened.
I have a witness who was with me and he revealed everything. He explained how it happened, and what he did, and it all made sense.
The world will be shocked by these revelations but, at the same time, lots of people have said there was some sort of problem in and I was set up. It was a mystery for 22 years but the mystery will soon be over. Why would Johnson have been set up? That's the main reason. I don't want to say too much here but it's all in the book.
The serious implication is that corporate forces paid the "Mystery Man" to frame Johnson because they did not want him to win Olympic gold. Without seeing his evidence, scrutiny of Johnson's charge will have to wait. But the trauma can still be seen in his face and heard in his voice. I said, 'Don't worry, mom. It's going to be a tough journey but I will survive it. I wouldn't expect no other human being to go through what I did — especially the first year. Johnson revered his mother and so he does not hesitate when asked what she would have said had he told her about Francis urging him to cheat.
And I would have listened to her. But when she heard what happened she said, 'Son, it's going to be very difficult. You will lose everything you worked for but, finally, there will be a light at the end of the tunnel. The sprinter was in a dark depression when, three years ago, he was introduced to Bryan Farnum, now his closest adviser and friend.
My depression healed, as did my anxiety. But I actually had depression at I had to take care of my niece, nephew and mother.
I took on that responsibility as a young boy. It's been painful looking back but Bryan said I must forgive myself before I forgive others. It is now the biggest fight of my life — to tell the truth about myself and what really happened. Johnson has been a perennial outsider since, aged 14, he left Jamaica with his mother. His stutter and accent isolated him in Canada.
In Jamaica we speak patois so people here couldn't understand me. I didn't come across very well. Did loneliness fuel his desire to succeed as a sprinter?
I was not accepted properly by my classmates. But I knew God had given me a talent and this was the life I needed to live. I was driven by many things — and Charlie Francis played the part of a father figure. I looked up to Charlie for guidance and it's just too bad he left us early because he was a brilliant man when it came to sprinting.
