‘Tis A Puzzlement

Trump threatens to shut Mexican border in demand for wall funding? Am I missing something here? I’m being overwhelmed with cognitive dissonance by this statement. If Trump somehow has the magical ability to shut the Mexican border, why does he want to build a wall?

I assume that he intends to stop those who have a legal right to cross the border, something he already does to asylum seekers. Cutting off trade that will cost businesses on both sides of the border major money every day is not going to result in anything other than making more people annoyed with his petulant attitude.

Maybe he should try holding his breath…
