KEY POINTS

President Donald Trump has said the biggest part of his new border deal with Mexico has not yet been revealed.

It may never be, according to his acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, who declined to discuss details of the arrangement in an interview with CNBC’s Eamon Javers on Tuesday.

“If I told you, it wouldn’t be the secret part of the deal, right?” Mulvaney said at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s Fiscal Summit.

Peterson Foundation’s Fiscal Summit.

Asked when the public would see the secret deal, Mulvaney responded: “Maybe never.”

“Because if it works, it doesn’t make any difference,” Mulvaney said. He added: “The purpose here is not to satisfy your journalistic sort of, you know, inquiries as to what the deal is. The goal is to reduce the number of people crossing the border.”

2. Democracies don't keep diplomatic things secret.

It works bc those who came before did a pretty good job, or there's something nefarious going on, or lying, and that's not how this govt works. We pay for it, it's our system. It's not open to illusory changes made in back channel deals.

13. It was obviously written with invisible ink.

Actually, it's a special ink invented by Trump that only people with really high IQs the bestest brains can see.

12. It's in that special place where Republicans keep

-Trump's "much better and cheaper health care plan"

-Nixon's secret plan to win in Vietnam

- John McCain's knowledge of how to "fix it, my friends."

-Sarah Palin's data that she was "gonna find you some and get back to ya."

30. The number of communists



It was on TV a couple of weeks ago. I have the DVD too. I have the DVD of the remake, which, unlike most remakes, is also excellent, as well.

Thanks.

What is to prevent any of the other parties to reveal what is in it?
