President Trump signed an executive order today to unilaterally cancel the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

Under the treaty at the end of the Mexican-American War, on July 4, 1848, the United States agreed to pay Mexico US$15 million for the land, and up to $5 million for claims that American citizens had against Mexico, in exchange for California and a large area comprising roughly half of New Mexico, most of Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. Mexicans in those annexed areas had the choice of relocating to within Mexico's new boundaries or receiving American citizenship with full civil rights. (Source: Wikipedia)

The impact of this new executive order by President Trump is immediate. All U.S. citizenship is revoked for anyone in the parts of the United States that are returned to Mexico. Trump demanded that Mexico pay back the $20 million. The President of Mexico AMLO said he was in full agreement. Mexico will refund the money of $20 million, and cancel the deal.

Trump said, "I canceled this treaty by executive tweet because this was one of the worst deals for America. It brought into the USA more rapists, murderers, and liberals like the 'fruits and nuts' from California."

Senator Diane Feinstein from California said, "We're happy to leave the USA. We wanted to do that anyway." The State of California ordered the immediate removal of any remnants of the US/Mexico border wall. Bar patrons in California celebrated their liberation from "Trumpland" with shots of tequila and beer. Trumpland is the newly-named country of what remains of the USA.
