Josh Marshall wonders why Donald Trump has decided to visit Mexico. After citing the many reasons that, in his opinion, this cannog turn out well for Trump, he decides that there is only one explanation. A snippet:
Trump’s Razor helps here. It’s tempting to assume that there’s some angle Trump has here, some plan or understanding with Peña Nieto to make this not as silly a decision as it appears to be. I’m tempted because how could they think this was a good idea? Trump’s Razor tells us to resist this temptation. “The stupidest scenario possible that can be reconciled with the available facts.”
Marshall has a few thoughts after the event.
