There is only one thing consistent about Donald Trump’s presidency, and that is his continued doubling down of statements that have already been debunked as outright lies. On Wednesday, Trump posted the same ridiculous assurances that economists have told him repeatedly simply is not true.

If “much of the wall has already been fully renovated or built,” why exactly has Trump shut down the government for more funding or practically begged Nancy Pelosi to “make a deal”?

Geoffrey Gertz, noted as “a fellow in the Global Economy and Development program at the Brookings Institution and a research associate at the Global Economic Governance Programme at the University of Oxford,” was quoted by FactCheck.org as saying:

‘Ultimately USMCA is very similar to NAFTA, and so we shouldn’t expect any substantial economic shifts from the new agreement. It’s difficult to argue that that NAFTA was “anti-USA” and “very costly” but that USMCA will save us lots of money, because there’s not a huge difference between the two agreements.’

The USMCA will in no way cover the cost of the wall nor reimburse taxpayers for the border wall funding that is unnecessary and ineffective. A wall will not stop illegal immigration, which was already at record lows under President Obama, a man Trump has repeatedly insisted supported open borders.

These are all just more lies from the liar-in-chief who is desperate for a win as controversies pile up around him, controversies that involve criminal acts by the president.

Twitter was quick to point out the flaws in Trump’s logic. Read some of their comments below:
