Trump is failing – don't ask me to lie about it

For decades, voters have been lied to by politicians promising to crack down on immigration. We vote and we vote and we vote, and nothing ever changes. Wage-lowering, culture-destroying policies manage to appear in every bill Congress passes. We finally got sick of it and voted for Trump. He promised to build a wall, deport illegal aliens and end the anchor baby scam. No matter how much the establishment screamed at him, he never backed down. To call Trump"s promise to build a wall his "central campaign promise" routinizes it. That promise was indispensable to his election in a way that no o
