His so called ‘deal’ announcement yesterday has called flat on its face….
Democrats said ‘No’ before it even got formally announced…..
They want the government workers back to work and paid….
And will NOT sign off on ANY wall money….
Conservatives from Trump own party that he has trying please in this whole thing do NOT want any deal that offers any relaxing of Trump’s hardline immigration policy…
How long can this go on?
How deep a dropping poll numbers can Trump endure?
Democrats are NOT gonna bend on this….
Donald Trump said ‘blame me’…..
He’s getting what he wanted….
Immigration hardliners on Saturday afternoon blasted President Donald Trump’s proposed deal to end the government shutdown, attacking his offer of temporary protection for some undocumented immigrants in exchange for border wall funding.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) tweeted: “A Big Beautiful Concrete Border Wall will be a monument to the Rule of Law, the sovereignty of the USA, & @realDonaldTrump. If DACA Amnesty is traded for $5.7 billion(1/5 of a wall), wouldn’t be enough illegals left in America to trade for the remaining 4/5. NO AMNESTY 4 a wall!”
“100 miles of border wall in exchange for amnestying millions of illegals. So if we grant citizenship to a BILLION foreigners, maybe we can finally get a full border wall,” tweetedconservative media commentator Ann Coulter, who has repeatedly antagonized the president for failing to erect a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border during his two years in office.
“Trump proposes amnesty. We voted for Trump and got Jeb!” Coulter added, referring to Trump’s 2016 GOP primary rival, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who has previously criticized the president’s immigration rhetoric….
Getting this settled is gonna take some political hurt by Trump….
He’s trying top get around it….
But it won’t work…
He’s supposed to the President of an entire country…
Not a few rightwing talking heads….
Trump tries to ramble back to please his rightwingnuts….
(This IS the problem…Trump reads something on line or see’s something on Fox news and THAT is how he reacts…Democrats can’t trust him and neither can Republican lawmakers!)
President Trump said in a Sunday morning tweet that there will be “no big push” to remove anyone who is in the country illegally, but indicated Democrats should “be careful” in criticizing his offer to Congress to re-open the government.
Driving the news: Trump proposed Saturday a 3-year extension of protections for DACA recipients and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders in exchange for $5.7 billion in border funding. Democrats have already pushed back on President Trump’s offer.
