President Donald Trump has spent the last several days boasting about the supposed agreement that he’s reached with Mexico to put a damper on immigration after he axed his big tariff plan thanks to a boatload of heavy criticism. But so far, it doesn’t seem that Trump himself has actually done a damn thing.
Mexico did reach an agreement with the US back in March with then-Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen, but it had very little if anything at all to do with Trump. Of course, that did nothing to stop the president from tweeting out nonsense, taking all the credit for an alleged deal that, according to the Mexican foreign minister, doesn’t even exist.
But now it seems that Donald has taken his lie a step further when he held an impromptu press conference on the White House south lawn, like he so often does, and waved around a paper that he claimed was the agreement between the US and Mexico — but not only did he refuse to show it to reporters, you can actually see that the paper was completely blank when he held it up.
In the footage, you see Donald taking a piece of paper from inside his jacket and hold it up, scanning it back and forth to show the reporters.
“That’s the agreement that everybody says I don’t have,” the president stated matter of factly as he flaunted the paper.
But when he was asked to show the paper to the group of supporters, he quickly fired back with a solid “No,” using the excuse that he would be letting Mexico do the announcement.
Of course, he ranted on about how the agreement is so big and important, despite the fact that he was only holding one piece of paper, and made sure everyone knew he was completely responsible for the success. However, the most interesting thing about it all is the fact that you can literally see that there’s not so much as a smear of ink on the page he’s holding.
As Donald flaunts the paper through the air, the sun shining down on it allows you to completely see the president’s finger through the paper, and not a single word can be seen. It appears that he is literally holding a blank piece of paper, claiming that it’s some huge, important, secretive agreement with Mexico.
Talk about “fake news.”
