From the August 31 edition of MSNBC’s MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall:
TAMRON HALL (HOST): How do you see this meeting [between Donald Trump and Mexico's president] playing out today?
RICK WILSON: I see this meeting playing out as being a dumpster fire on top of a giant mountain of burning tires. There is very little condition that Donald Trump comes out of this where he doesn't, first off, lie about what happened in the meeting. He is going to say, “The Mexicans agreed to everything I want. They're building the wall -- we’re building the wall. They're paying for it.” And then the Mexicans are going to blow him up. This is a guy who has -- he's been very accustomed to existing in this sort of Sean Hannity-Rush Limbaugh bubble for the last few months where no alternative reality impinges. But this is a real deal with an actual head of state of a foreign power. And he's going to have to go there and he can't just lie his way out of it. He can't just say, “Oh, they've agreed to all my terms. The Mexicans are now writing a check for me at this very moment to build my magical wall.” And the problem is more broadly, he's trying to, quote, unquote, “appeal to Hispanic voters.” But he's about to give a speech tonight that is pure Stephen Miller, that is going to be the same story that he's told before where he's talking about Mexicans as practically genetically criminals and they're rapists and all this other stuff to appeal to his base. And I don't think he's going to get anywhere with Hispanic voters in this country by continuing to be so divisive and by having to live up to what his crowds desire versus what would be smart politically. He’s not a guy with any compassion in his soul so it's going to fall very flat.
