Two Things President Trump Would Do: Deport Mexicans and Default on the Debt

Because he's been a racist for decades, and because he always defaults, if he can get away with it.

Heather Digby Parton: "Trump has a long history of racism, of a very ugly sort." That goes back to an incident in May of 1989, during which Trump "took out a full-age ad in four New York City newspapers with the title 'BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY! BRING BACK THE POLICE!'" Five young African-American and Hispanic men were sentenced for that crime…but several years later, they were exonerated, and they sued the city and won a $40 million settlement. And what did Trump have to say about that? "Forty million dollars is a lot of money for the taxpayers of New York to pay when we are already the highest taxed city and state in the country. The recipients must be laughing out loud at the stupidity of the city."

And then we have Trump on CNBC, back in May.

The U.S. never has to default on debt "because you print the money," … Asked if the U.S. needs to pay its debt in full or if it could negotiate a partial repayment, Trump said: "I would borrow, knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal." — CNN. Analysis on Politifact.
I think he would default, because that's what he does. F—, f—, f'ity F—.
