As usual ?
Donald J. Tump IS ALL over the place….
He has been animate that he won’t change HIS mind on the zero-tolerance family separation policy his guy Stephen Miller and Jeff Sessions have gotten him into….
He, of course CAN make this problem go away…
But HE isn’t good at taking responsibility for much of anything….

And his supporters help him at scared the shit out of his parties lawmakers…..
Except when things go nuclear like now….

Don’t get too excited….
President Donald Trump told House Republicans to send him an immigration bill dealing with Dreamers and migrant families being separated at the border in a freewheeling address Tuesday — giving GOP leadership what it hopes was the green light it needed to pass legislation that’s infuriated the far right.
Trump told the GOP Conference during a closed-door meeting that he would accept either of two competing immigration bills slated for a vote this week. Many Republicans said they interpreted his words as support for a measure negotiated among GOP leaders, moderate Republicans and conservatives. Leaders were to whip votes for the carefully crafted package on Tuesday night.
“I’m with you 100 percent!” Trump told them, later adding, “I will not leave you in the wilderness.”
Trump also said that his daughter Ivanka Trump had approached him about his policy of splitting kids from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, telling him the images did not look good. He encouraged Republicans to pass a package that includes a fix that keeps families together — even though he could stop the practice at any moment.

But Trump also never indicated that he would back down on the issue, even as he’s come under rising pressure, including from Republicans on Capitol Hill.
