The Difference Between Being a Good Neighbor…And a Chumph

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Mexican soldiers rolled across the border in a 45-vehicle convoy and set up camp at the former Kelly Air Force Base near San Antonio. They served victims 170,000 meals, distributed 184,000 tons of supplies and conducted hundreds of medical consultations. Mexico also shipped humanitarian aid to New Orleans, and former President George W. Bush met with Mexican Marines to thank them.

Despire repeated provocations, grandstanding, and churlishness by the Chumphshit – Mexico is again taking the high road in providing help to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. It is, after all, what good, mature, and responsible neighbors do.

The Chumphshit is doing what racist loser do.

 

Abbott says Texas will accept Mexican offer of Hurricane Harvey relief

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Wednesday the state is accepting Mexico’s offer to help get Texas back on its feet in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

“Yes. I have, and we are,” Abbott said from Austin when journalists asked him about the topic. “We had a list of aid and assistance that they have offered to provide that we are accepting.”

Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, the consul general in Austin, applauded the governor’s decision. He said vehicles, boats and food will start arriving in Texas within days.

“We are very pleased with Governor Abbott’s response,” Gutierrez said. “Mexico looks forward to doing its share.”

With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other.

Mexico, in a diplomatic note Tuesday, provided a long list of items it could supply, including troops, convoys of food, medicine, portable showers and water.

“Texas and Mexico share more than half the border,” Carlos Sada, Mexico’s undersecretary for North American relations said. “There are families, marriages, businesses that bind our two sides. This is about being good neighbors.”

In Washington, following a meeting at the State Department, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson thanked Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray Caso for its “wide range of assistance.”

“It was very generous of Mexico to offer their help at a very, very challenging time for our citizens back in Texas,” he said.

Videgaray responded: “You’re absolutely welcome. We are here to help. We are friends. We are neighbors, and that’s what friends do.”

We are in the NAFTA (worst trade deal ever made) renegotiation process with Mexico & Canada.Both being very difficult,may have to terminate?

President Donald Trump has not responded publicly to Mexico’s aid, though on Tuesday he accepted an offer from Singapore to lend four of its CH-47 Chinook helicopters for rescue efforts. Trump spoke by phone with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong as he flew to Texas, and accepted the offer, according to Lee’s office. Singapore’s Air Force has trained since 1995 with the Texas Army National Guard.

Mexico’s offer of help comes at a crucial time for the U.S.-Mexican relations, which in many ways is largely shaped by Texas, home to nearly 11 million Hispanics, the majority of them of Mexican heritage. Houston is one of the most diverse cities in the United States, with a population of more than 600,000 unauthorized immigrants, according to the Pew Research Center.

To unauthorized immigrants seeking shelter from Harvey’s devastation, Sada said: “Don’t be afraid to come out. There is no deportation operation underway. We have the assurance of Gov. Abbott and the mayor of Houston.”

Beginning Friday, activists are set to launch statewide protests on two fronts. They plan to rally against the state’s new ban on so-called sanctuary cities, a law taking effect Friday. They also plan demonstrations to register growing fears that President Donald Trump will soon end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, created by the Obama administration to block deportation of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.

Moreover, negotiations between the U.S., Mexico and Canada to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement — from which Trump has repeatedly threatened to pull the U.S. — will resume Friday. No other state has more at stake in those talks than Texas, where nearly half a million jobs depend on the deal.

“Mexico’s desire to be humane at a time of such great need contrasts the character and the churlishness coming out of Washington, D.C., and NAFTA,” said Tony Garza, a prominent Republican and former U.S. ambassador and now legal counsel with White & Case in Mexico City. “In Texas, given the Legislature’s focus these past few months on sanctuary cities sends a clear signal to hundreds of thousands of Texans, particularly Latinos along the Gulf Coast and in Harris County, that we’re not with you and in an increasingly purple state, that may mean something.”

Garza recalled Mexico taking “the high road” in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. Mexican soldiers rolled across the border in a 45-vehicle convoy and set up camp at the former Kelly Air Force Base near San Antonio. They served victims 170,000 meals, distributed 184,000 tons of supplies and conducted hundreds of medical consultations. Mexico also shipped humanitarian aid to New Orleans, and former President George W. Bush met with Mexican Marines to thank them.

It’s unclear how Trump, who arrived in Texas on Tuesday to survey Harvey’s catastrophic damage, will react to Mexico’s offer to help. The president and Mexico have had an acrimonious relationship dating back to Trump’s first day as a presidential candidate, when he referred to Mexicans as rapists, murderers and criminals.

“We know that Trump is intensely disliked by Mexicans, but in the end Mexicans see us as a neighbor, a place where Americans are good, decent people,” said James Taylor, a partner at Vianovo, an Austin-based consulting firm, and chairman of the Aquila Alliance, a Texas group dedicated to promoting closer relations between Texas and Mexico. “Mexicans are demonstrating they care about their neighbor — especially their immediate neighbor, Texas.”

On Sunday, as waters rose across southeast Texas, Mexico reached out to Texas. Trump, meanwhile, bullied Mexico on Twitter to pay for his promised border wall. On Monday, he repeated his threat the the U.S. would at some point kill NAFTA.

“We’re in a critical and delicate negotiation with NAFTA,” said Ricardo Ainslie, director of the Mexico Center at the University of Texas at Austin. “Mexico has been the brunt of a lot of highly pressured, hostile rhetoric. So I think it’s very interesting that Mexico is saying in so many words ‘Hey, we’re present, and we’re critical to things that happen in Texas.’ They’re showing real political maturity.”

Texas has its own dicey issues with Mexico. The recently signed SB4 was scheduled to go into effect Friday until a federal judge blocked its implementation late Wednesday. SB4 effectively outlaws sanctuary cities — places where local law enforcement limits or refuses cooperation with federal immigration agents — and gives police the right to ask the immigration status of people they detain. Mexico’s vast immigrant population would be affected.

In 2015, Texas and 25 other states blocked the Obama administration, through a federal court ruling, from extending deferred action to an estimated 5 million undocumented parents of children who were citizens or legal residents, as well as to young immigrants who arrived between 2007 and 2010. The ruling was upheld on appeal, and last year, the Supreme Court split 4-4, leaving the lower court’s decision in place.

Texas leads a group of 10 states pressuring the Trump administration to end DACA, and in recent days Trump has signaled he may do so. A legal challenge could come as early as Sept. 5. Most affected immigrants live in either Texas or California.

“Yes, we know about Sept. 1 and Sept. 5, but our decision, our willingness to help Texas isn’t based on politics,” Sada said. “This is a spontaneous reaction to a neighbor in need, and we, based on our own experiences with natural disasters, know recovery periods can take months, years. So we’re here with one message: Texas, Mexico is ready to help.”

Already, volunteers from the Mexican Red Cross, firemen from the border state of Coahuila and rescue teams from Guanajuato began arriving in Houston to assist.

The Chumph Begs Mexico to Pay for the Wall

Does the “Art of the deal” include begging?

Image result for the border wall fail

BUSTED: Leaked transcript shows Trump begged Mexican prez to stop saying he’d never pay for the wall

One of President Donald Trump’s most famous campaign pledges from the 2016 election was to force the Mexican government to pay for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

However, a leaked transcript of a phone call between Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto obtained by the Washington Post shows that Trump understood that he would never get Mexico to fully pay for the wall — but he nonetheless begged his Mexican counterpart to stop saying so publicly.

“On the wall, you and I both have a political problem,” Trump told Peña Nieto. “My people stand up and say, ‘Mexico will pay for the wall,’ and your people probably say something in a similar but slightly different language… I have to have Mexico pay for the wall — I have to. I have been talking about it for a two-year period.”

Peña Nieto, however, was resistant to this and again insisted that his government would not pay for the wall.

“My position has been and will continue to be very firm, saying that Mexico cannot pay for the wall,” he told Trump.

“But you cannot say that to the press,” Trump insisted. “The press is going to go with that, and I cannot live with that.”

Trump suggested that the two men agree to negotiate over how the wall would get paid for, and he said they could work out a deal where Mexico wouldn’t actually end up paying for it. Specifically, Trump told the Mexican president that funding for the wall “will work out in the formula somehow” and that Mexico’s share of the costs “will come out in the wash, and that is okay.”

In Mexico – “Trump Toilet Paper”

It is the only wipe which leaves you feeling dirtier than you were before using it!

Take a dump on the Trump…Indeed.

Mexican Lawyer Markets Trump-Branded Toilet Paper For A Very Good Cause

A lawyer in central Mexico is taking the fight against President Donald Trump to the toilet.

Antonio Battaglia is reportedly planning to launch a “Trump” branded toilet paper later this year — with 30 percent of the profits going toward financing programs that support migrants and Mexicans deported from the U.S.

A photograph of the prototype packaging shows a cartoon version of Trump giving a thumbs-up, alongside the slogan “softness without borders.”

The image was shared online earlier this week, and is now going viral.

Battaglia told Expansion that he was initially inspired to release a product that made a stand against Trump following the businessman’s “insulting” comments about Mexicans as he announced his candidacy for the presidency in June 2015.

When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said. “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

It annoyed me and I started to look for a way to do something that would have an impact,” Battaglia said. “Not in a mocking tone or as revenge, but in a positive way.”

The lawyer said he initially planned to register a clothing or shoe line under the “Trump” name. His family runs a shoe-making business. But he discovered that Mexico’s Institute of Industrial Property had already granted the trademarks to the Trump Organization.

“Then came the idea of producing a toilet paper, a product that was ironic and that would remain in the market for a good time,” said Battaglia, who is investing 400,000 pesos of his own money (about $21,400) into the project.

To his relief, he found the “Trump” trademark for “hygienic paper” had not yet been taken. According to The Associated Press, the Institute approved his trademark application for “Trump” toilet paper in October 2015.

Battaglia hopes to begin selling the paper in September, but says making money from the project is “secondary.” “What I want is that it is useful to help migrants and the deported.”

Mexican Mob “Lynches” Russian “Nazi”

Maybe I am just “Old School”. But I find folks are a lot friendlier if you don’t  abuse them, and denigrate their women folk. Somebody should have told this clown he wasn’t in America where he would have been a Trump “protected species”.

Not the Nazi in question – But there are Russian Nazis

Mexican Mob Lynches Russian ‘Nazi’ in Cancun

Avowed Nazi sympathizer Aleksei Makeev made himself a nuisance online in Mexico. People who have no faith in police responded with mob justice.

“Kill him! Kill him! Kill him,” chanted a mob of roughly 100 angry Mexicans in Cancun, the popular tourist destination on the coast of Quintana Roo, Mexico. “I’m going to decapitate you,” one man shouted at Aleksei Viktorovich Makeev, as the bloodied 42-year-old Russian resident of Mexico fled the interior of his home for a nearby rooftop while the mob pelted him with large rocks and jeered. When Makeev finally collapsed on the rooftop, covered in his own blood—and that of an unarmed teenager whom he stabbed moments before, after the teen attempted to enter the Russian’s apartment—the townspeople finally let him be, as reporters livestreaming from the scene claimed that Makeev had died.

In fact, after being beaten with sticks and stoned nearly to death, the half-naked Russian was transported to a local hospital and treated for his injuries. The townspeople had fractured his skull.

Makeev is now reportedly in stable condition, but remains in a drug-induced coma, paralyzed and likely brain-damaged, said Dmitry Bolbot, Mexico City’s Russian consul. But the 19-year-old youth whose last name has not yet been disclosed, “Lalo”—a nickname for Eduardo—bled out on the pavement as paramedics attempted to save his life. He was pronounced dead soon after Makeev stabbed him repeatedly in the stomach with a kitchen knife as he fled the home. The horrific stabbing was also caught on tape.

“The Russian has just stabbed this person. He’s losing a lot of blood,” someone said in one of many livestreams of the hours-long encounter, as thousands of social media users watched from their phones and computers, leaving comments like “Cut off [the Russian’s] head! Toss him in a ditch,” and “Finish him off! Get it over with!”

The mob descended on his home after local media reports began circulating on Friday about Makeev, who had spent the previous months uploading videos of himself on his personal YouTube channels surrounded by swastikas.

In the videos, one can see that he had made a hobby of disparaging the people of Mexico, speaking with particular loathing about indigenous women and infants. He was dubbed #LordNaziRuso on social media—Lord Russian Nazi—and outrage quickly grew.

Just past noon on Friday, Makeev posted on Facebook that he was “feeling adventurous,” along with the comment that “Terrorists are trying to kill me!”

Hours later, he posted a crude drawing that read “lick my dick Mexican piece of shit” as he laughed at the angry crowd that had begun to phone him and cover his Facebook wall with angry comments.

By dusk, as the mob formed outside the tiny one-room apartment in Cancun from which he often posted videos at his untidy desk—next to cans of peas and other food lining the windowsill—a local reporter with a drone began to film the lead-up to the lynching attempt, as Makeev sat at his desk and continued to poke the bear and mock the people online.

From that desk—seated next to a family-size bottle of ketchup and more pictures of swastikas and promotional material for his unpopular YouTube channels—the Russian had repeatedly posted videos complaining about both the Mexican people and their police in a mix of Russian and the occasional insult in English or Spanish.

Though he made himself completely unwelcome in Mexico, Makeev—who is originally from the small town of Elektrostal, on the outskirts of Moscow—had also previously made a name for himself in Russia where he was apparently put under review by the Ministry of Internal Affairs in 2013, after footage posted online showed him shoving an elderly woman and child. He was reportedly interned in a Russian psychiatric facility for his erratic behavior as a result.

“If the government doesn’t want to do anything, if our authorities can’t, we’re going to get together and do this right,” said one man in a livestream Friday night, just before the lynching attempt began, inviting the people of Cancun to come down to the man’s home and get him. “We aren’t going to lynch him, because that sounds bad, but we are going to teach him a lesson.”

“Cancun deserves respect,” the man said, adding, “It’s the most beautiful place you could ever imagine.”

The bizarre videos Makeev became known for show his fanatical obsession with Madonna and knives, and that he far too often sat at the local McDonald’s in Cancun, invasively filming humble Mexican diners—zooming in on the faces of what he called their “bastard” children, and referring to the people as “monkeys” and “pieces of shit.”

In one video, filmed from a local rooftop, he stood shirtless next to a swastika and—wearing a clown nose—referred to “McDonald… Trump.” Many of his Facebook posts, in fact, relate to the various controversies involving the U.S. President’s alleged ties to Russia.

He had been getting on people’s nerves for a while, but had made at least a few friends locally. Just two weeks ago, he uploaded a video of himself interviewing an American man who called himself Roy, who claimed to have been beaten by the local police, after picking up some cash from a local Western Union. He said the cops “took [his] $200,” stranding him in Mexico without a passport.

“When I woke up, I’m on my hands and knees. And when I got up, I seen my teeth, so I picked ‘em up and put ‘em in my pocket, and the muth… uh, they had gone. They left. So, I was left with nothing, and I was left with this,” said a toothless Roy, pointing to a blackened right eye. “So I advise anyone coming here, be careful. The police are very corrupt.”

It was a common theme in his videos. When not complaining about Mexicans, he complained about their cops.

Last December,  he was locked up for a month in an immigration center in Quintana Roo and  declared persona non grata after repeatedly threatening the local Maya people. He complained in videos that he had not been given water, and had been treated poorly in detention. In a statement, the National Migration Institute said that Makeev’s “definitive exit from the country was ordered on January 19” of this year.

But Makeev, who was previously employed as a scuba instructor at AquaWorld Cancun, remained in the country regardless. When contacted on Saturday, the watersports company was unable to offer any comment, but said in a statement that he stopped working with them in November 2015, after they noticed that “his behavior had begun to turn aggressive.”

A statement reportedly from the Russian Embassy did not condone his actions in Mexico, but added that they “categorically reproach the manner in which Mexican citizens did not attempt to denounce [his actions] but instead took matters into their own hands,” asking Mexican authorities to help clarify these “unfortunate events.”

But citizens and residents had reported his behavior to immigration authorities in recent months, even after his recent detention. One local radio disc jockey, 55-year-old Fabricio Rechy, provided The Daily Beast with screenshots of a conversation he had with immigration authorities this past February, in which he sends authorities the worrisome videos he had come across, requesting that the Russian be removed for posing a danger to the local people.

During his conversation, the immigration employee at first implied that the videos were filmed in Russia, but the radio host pointed out that they were filmed inside the local McDonald’s. He even made it easy for them, providing screenshots of the man’s immigration documents.

“They thanked me for the information and said they would investigate,” Rechy said in a telephone interview on Saturday. “But I doubt they gave it any importance.”

“I stumbled on the videos, and saw the way he was threatening people, calling them shit, saying he was going to kill Mexicans, cut off their heads, and I thought he was a dangerous person, so I felt the need to report it. It’s my duty as a citizen,” he said. “There are videos that show him giving babies the middle finger, throwing coins at an old woman in a grocery store, hitting another elderly lady inside a bank, and stepping on children’s lunch on the beach.”

As for the incident that ended one young man’s life on Friday night, Rechy said, “It never should have happened.”

“The police arrived at night, but left saying they couldn’t do anything because the man was locked inside his home,” he said.

Later that night, “about half an hour after the lynching started,” when the riotous fighting was well under way, the police finally returned with backup. But by then the situation had become unmanageable.

As paramedics transported Makeev’s unconscious bloody body to the hospital late Friday night, smiling families cheered and screamed insults at him—at times chanting, “Mexico! Mexico! Mexico!”

The National Immigration Institute said in a statement that it would seek his repatriation back to Russia as soon as his legal situation in Mexico is determined.

But, Rechy noted, “None of this would have happened if they had just taken notice when I asked them to.”

“That boy would still be alive,” he said. “Unfortunately, this is a national problem in Mexico—the lack of authority, and the authorities’ inaction. I hate to say it, but we are used to corruption here in Mexico.”

“There just isn’t any trust,” he said. “People prefer to take justice into their own hands than deal with authorities. That’s how this works.”

Payback…Trump Voter Deported

Yet another Trump voter getting shafted by the Chumph. Don’t even ask us to feel sorry for your dumb, Chumph bigot supporting ass.

Indiana Trump supporter’s husband gets deported to Mexico

Roberto Beristain, an undocumented immigrant whose American wife voted for Donald Trump last year, has been deported to Mexico.

Local news station WSBT reports that Beristain was deported on Tuesday night, weeks after his case rose to national attention.

Beristain, who was a resident of Granger, Ind., and owner of the popular Eddie’s Steak Shed restaurant, was deported despite pleas from both his family and from local government officials, who lauded him as a model citizen who never broke any laws.

Even though Beristain came to the United States illegally in 1998, he later obtained documentation to legally work in the country while regularly checking in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Beristain’s wife, Helen, last month told Indiana Public Media that she voted for Trump in November because she supported his policies on deporting undocumented immigrants. However, she tells IPM that she never expected her own husband to be caught up in a deportation wave.

“[Trump] did say the good people would not be deported, the good people would be checked,” she explained.

Chumph Disaster of the Day 1/27/17

In a silly bit of grandstanding, Putin’s Bitch basically shut down a meeting with the Mexican President by making a demand to “pay for the wall”. Further straining, if not destroying relations with our neighbors to the South. And not just Mexico. From the Mérida Initiative, which battles corruption drive by Drug Cartels, cooperation in denying entry of foreign terrorists across the US’s longest border, the existence of billions of dollars of factories in Mexico, oil and gas, and importation of agricultural product.

One has to wonder exactly how long the Chump’s support would last if the Mexican Government Nationalized all US assets and businesses in the country.

  • Mexico was the United States’ 2nd largest goods export market in 2015.
  • U.S. goods exports to Mexico in 2015 were $236 billion, down 1.6% ($3.9 billion) from 2014 but up 97% from 2005. U.S. exports to Mexico are up 468% from 1993 (pre-NAFTA). U.S. exports to Mexico account for 15.7% of overall U.S. exports in 2015.
  • Mexico is currently our 3rd largest goods trading partner with $531 billion in total (two way) goods trade during 2015. Goods exports totaled $236 billion; goods imports totaled $295 billion. The U.S. goods trade deficit with Mexico was $58 billion in 2015.

Looks like our psychotic illegitimate Chumph is playing Russian Roulette with America, with five bullets loaded in his six shooter… again. Instead of the other way around.

Trump Says He May Cancel Meeting With Mexican President

President Trump said he may want to cancel next week’s meeting with the president of Mexico after his Mexican counterpart again said he was not paying for any border wall.

In one of his more remarkable flights of fancy, President Trump declared on Wednesday that his border wall and crackdown on undocumented immigrants would actually improve relations with Mexico, to which Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, declared, “No Mas.”

Translation: “Mexico offers and demands respect, as the fully sovereign nation that we are.” Further translation, we aren’t paying for your wall.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly claimed that Mexico would finance construction of the wall, even as Mr. Peña Nieto and other top Mexican officials have insisted they would do no such thing.

The feud escalated on Wednesday, after Mr. Trump signed an executive order to begin immediate work on the barrier, on the same day that Luis Videgaray, Mexico’s foreign minister, was in Washington to begin talks to prepare for next week’s meeting between the two presidents at the White House.

A 75-mile hole in the wall

There’s a slight problem with President Trump’s Great Wall with Mexico: the Tohono O’odham Nation.

The Native American tribe controls about 75 miles of U.S.-Mexican border that slices through its sovereign territory, and tribal leaders are already saying that wall is not going to divide its territory.

Tohono O’odham Nation Vice Chairman Verlon Jose was not subtle when he spoke to Native News Online: “Over my dead body.”

Tribal officials did say they are willing to meet with President Trump to discuss the matter further. As Mr. Jose said:

“I don’t wish to die, but I do wish to work together with people so we can truly protect the homeland of this place they call the United States of America. Not only for our people but for the American people.”

Mexican Beer Company Trolls Trumpazoids

Spanish, just like any other living language, has it’s own regional colloquialisms. Americans should be familiar with this because of the number of sayings and words entering the lexicon from the popular and black American culture. Learned my Spanish by spending over a year on the border and befriending several Mexican people. Being surrounded by people who speak a different language is the fastest way I know of to learn a new language. I was initially surprised at the number of colloquialisms and sayings that they don’t teach you in Spanish class – which were relevant only to Mexican culture.

In this video, two employees of a Mexican Brewing Company are trolling Chumph Supporters with free T-Shirts. To the uninitiated, the t-shirts seem to be supportive of Trump. To any speaker of Mexican Spanish familiar with the people’s saying…It means something quite different. The saying “el que lo lea” literally means “You are what you read” It derives from a saying “Puto el que lo lea”, which means whomever reads this is a faggot”…

The T-shirt has a big picture of Trump, with a red clown nose. So what the saying on the front, “Hasta el que lo lea” means….”Whomever wears this is a clown”.

Mexican brewery trolls Trump supporters with hilarious trick T-shirts

Mexican craft brewery Cerveza Cucapá launched a hilarious campaign — not for a wall but for beer — and “Donald Trump is going to pay for our beers,” they say.

A Spanish-language video was published during the first presidential debate, showing a man who traveled to Los Angeles and sold Trump T-shirts to unsuspecting Trump supporters. While the shirt read “Donald el que lo lea,” and showed the Republican nominee in a clown nose, no one noticed it was mocking Trump. The phrase is a variation of a well-known Mexican saying that only Mexicans and Mexican-Americanswould understand.

Cucapá founder Mario García explained to Vice that the campaign came from Trump himself, who has claimed that Mexico will pay for the wall on the U.S. border. “Well, Donald Trump is gonna pay for our beers, even though he doesn’t know it yet,” García said.

While getting Trump himself to cough up the cash proved more difficult, their T-shirt trick worked wonders on the Venice Beach boardwalk, along Hollywood Boulevard and Huntington Beach.

The first sale on video shows García sitting next to an old white man at a bus stop. He asks who the man, “Are you a Donald supporter?” The man says that he is, and snags a T-shirt.

The plan worked, except with the police, who seemed to have problems with T-shirt stand and further that García was filming interactions.

“Two police officers wanted to take away our merchandise and another moved us on,” she said. “There were a lot of people that insulted us, threw our merchandise on the floor, and shouted at us for supporting Trump, but there were also a lot of people who wanted to buy the shirts.”

The border issue has always been something that the brewery has talked about. Founded in 2002, their first location was in Mexicali and gets their name from the indigenous Cocopah tribe, that settled on both sides of the U.S. and Mexican borders.

“At Cucapá we’ve always carried the theme of the border in our DNA, so it was very natural for us as a brand to want to do something about Trump,” García said.
