White House reporter busts Trump: His Mexico deal 'appears to be a blank piece of paper'

Published 9 mins ago on June 11, 2019

By Eric W. Dolan

President Donald Trump on Tuesday claimed to have proof that he had cut a deal with Mexico to stem migration into the United States.

Appearing before reporters on the South Lawn of the White House, Trump pulled out a folded piece of paper and declared “that’s the agreement that everybody says I don’t have.”

“This is one page of a very long and very good agreement for both Mexico and the United States. Without the tariffs, we would have had nothing,” the president added.

But Brian Karem, the White House correspondent for Playboy, noted that Trump never unfolded the paper.

When the media calls out this narcissistic asshole bluff he tries to hide.......................Playboy called his bluff.......................

4. Close-up:

EXCLUSIVE: Visible on Trump’s paper: "such agreement would… party’s domestic and international legal obligations, a commitment under which each party would accept the return and process refugee status claims, of third-party nationals who have crossed that party’s territory”

9. If that is 'Page One' of a 'long' agreement ...

Why does it appeared to be SIGNED ... on that very page?

Signatures come at the end of multi-page documents, typically, do they not?

11. Unless you're Donald Trump.

Then you sign at the top.

21. lol yeah I thought of that ...

but you can see 'On Behalf of the United States' and 'On Behalf of Mexico' (at the left and right respectively) at the top near the fold, and the bottom of the sig from the Mexico representative.

This is clearly barely a 1/2 page document in entirety.

22. It appears the image has been flipped in order to make it readable.

I posted another image below.

23. With a sheet folded into 3rds like that with light shining through

Edit: Got it wrong.

Depending on which side your looking from and whether the paper is oriented top-to-bottom or bottom-to-top, each of the 3 sections can be readable verbatim (rightside up and L-to-R) in one of the 4 possible views. Only 1 of the 4 possible views has none of the 3 sections in order and right-side up.



My main point was this is clearly a 1 page 'document', not the first of many pages, otherwise it wouldn't have signatures ... signatures would be at the end of all the pages.

I have spent too much time trying to figure this one out!

18. It doesn't show in this photo but there's a huge "COPY" step across the top too.

For some reason that just makes me laugh.

14. But he never holds the paper like this. He kept it in front of him so the background

of any closeup would include his dark suit. This is like he is holding the paper away from him with a determination of using the grass as a background

Maybe they typed up a paper after people noticed that the one he had was blank and took a picture of it so you can read words on it.

5. You see, it would have been actually cool if he pulled out of his pocket....

....a balloon, which he then twisted into the shape of a dog.

That would have been the first time I would have been legitimately impressed by something Donald Trump has done.

Alas, it was not the case.

13. Actually, that was a request for long overdue payment from El Paso

for the $470,000 he still owes them. I think the next step should be for El Paso to hand it over to a collection agency and let the interminable calls begin.

Just sayin'.
