President Trump has been betrayed by a member of his administration and the man needs to answer for it ASAP.
Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, while speaking abroad at a private function at the Oxford Union, directly went against Trump’s immigration policies.
Right now, our economy is booming and Americans, after a decade of being out of work, are all getting work and being paid more.
One of the reasons most experts cite for this is the improved immigration policies of this administration.
Our borders are finally getting under control and the flow of immigration is finally where it should be (the U.S. currently allows about a million new immigrants into the country every year).
This has forced employers to pay more money to lure in more workers.
Mulvaney, however, seems to have a problem with that.
During the private event, he stated, “We are desperate — desperate — for more people.
“We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that we’ve had in our nation over the last four years.
“We need more immigrants.”
I first learned about the comments watching Tucker Carlson, and was shocked this had not really made its way around alt-media yet…
What About Americans?
While Mulvaney is railing to allow more immigrants in to take the remaining jobs, I would make the argument that we need to provide training for the remaining Americans that still need a job.
After all, unemployment is not at zero percent or anywhere close to it, so let’s take care of the homeless that want a better life and want to be able to provide for their family.
For those that do not have the education or training to apply for these jobs, let’s make sure they get it.
Once we put these people back to work, then you can start to talk about increasing the amount of immigrants we allow to enter the country every year.
He Did Get One Thing Right…
While I wholeheartedly disagree with Mulvaney’s immigration comments, he did get one thing right.
Mulvaney went after the Republican party as a whole for completely ignoring the deficit during Trump’s time in office.
He stated, “My party is very interested in deficits when there is a Democrat in the White House.
“The worst thing in the whole world is deficits when Barack Obama was the president.
“Then Donald Trump became president, and we’re a lot less interested as a party.”
People may not like this ugly truth, but it is the truth, and Trump needs to start to address this because it will become an issue during the primary.
When he ran, he said the deficit would be erased in eight years, and it has only gone up since he took office.
I have approved of just about every policy Trump has made while in office but we have seen no progress on the deficit and nobody is even talking about it other than Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).
That needs to change and it needs to change fast.
