Sen. Cory Booker accused President Trump of repeatedly lying to the American people and using propaganda to stir confusion and mislead the public. In a Thursday night interview, Booker said the president “needs to be called on it.”
The idea that Donald Trump might impose a 20% border tax on goods coming from Mexico unleashed a lot of outrage from both sides. Then WH press secretary Sean Spicer clarified that it was just a proposal. That might seem like the WH pulling the reins after unexpected outrage but Trump knows a thing or 2 about making deals -- and how to work the media. It's altogether possible ... that the actual border tax could be ... something more like 2 percent or 3 percent. Not so bad, right?
