Two hours ago, President Trump announced Mexico agreed to “stem the tide of migration” through their country to our southern border, and that he would be suspending the threat of tariffs against Mexico.

I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended. Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to….stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border. This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!

With Trump’s announcement, came an embarrassing admission by Daily Wire’s editor-in-chief, Ben Shapiro, who only six months ago, mocked President Trump for his December 4, 2018 tweet where he calls himself a “Tariff Man.”

In his tweet, President Trump promised to use tariffs as a way to even the playing field with countries who are taking advantage of the United States. In his tweet, President Trump jokingly referred to himself as “Tariff Man,” saying, ….I am a Tariff Man. When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so. It will always be the best way to max out our economic power. We are right now taking in $billions in Tariffs. MAKE AMERICA RICH AGAIN”

Shapiro responded:

Shapiro took his mocking of President Trump one step further, saying, “Tariff Man would be the world’s least successful superhero, with a long record of carnage and stupidity behind him.” Shapiro also tweeted an image of a super-hero, saying “Tariff Man in action.”

 

Whelan tweeted: WaPo: U.S./Mexico close to a deal to avoid tariffs. Mexico has proposed sending 6,000 troops to its southern border w/ Guatemala and what sounds like a modified version of a “safe third country” agreement. Unclear how close or if it will satisfy Trump.

Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro retweeted a link to a Wall Street Journal article by Robbie Whelan, who wrote about President Trump close to a deal with Mexico. In the tweet, Shapiro tweeted admitted that he underestimated President Trump and his ability to negotiate.

Shapiro tweeted: Trump was 100% right and I was 100% wrong. Good on him.

Shapiro has a history of betting against President Trump. In March 2016, only eight months before the election, he wrote an article for the Daily Wire, where he explained why he would “never vote for Donald Trump.” Shapiro made multiple accusations against then-candidate Trump, most of which turned out to be wildly untrue. He told his readers that Donald Trump “stands for Planned Parenthood.” President Trump is arguably the most pro-life President in American history. Shapiro also accused him of advocating for government domination of religion. Few Presidents have been as openly committed to protecting and defending Christianity and Judaism and the right for Americans to practice their religion as they see fit. He also accused Trump of standing against the Constitution, calling himself a conservative and warning his followers that Trump is not a conservative. Once again, Shapiro’s accusations about President Trump couldn’t have been more wrong.

In an article, we published earlier today; we revealed how The Daily Wire is one of the only conservative Facebook pages whose reach is expanding on a platform. Is it possible that Shapiro’s never-Trump attitude is appealing to Facebook censors, where anti-Trump pages are thriving?
