“Trump Now Says He Backs Deal to Protect ‘Dreamers’ ”
Let’s dig in its free for you here in Trump’s America …
WASHINGTON — “An unexpected meeting of the minds between President Trump and Democratic leaders on Thursday made real a possible deal in Congress to pair enhanced border security with legislation to protect young, undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.”
More please …
“It was the second time this month that a tentative agreement announced by Democrats left Republican leaders in Congress scrambling to adjust a legislative agenda that appears increasingly set by the party out of power in the House, the Senate and the
Listen to this …
“We’re working on a plan for DACA,” Mr. Trump told reporters, referring to protections for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, as he prepared to leave the White House for Florida. He added, “The wall will come later.” All you Trump haters don’t stone me. I just tell the truth here as you know. I realize CNN and Trump haters only report bad Trump news but I don’t.
Allow me to continue stone throwers if any are here … “We’re not going to bring a solution to the floor that does not have the support of President Trump,” Speaker Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin told reporters. But if Mr. Trump does support an immigration package that includes “security and enforcement,” he said, so will “a majority of our members, because our members support President Trump.”
“I think President Trump has a chance to be on immigration what President Nixon was on China; he has a lot of credibility on the issue,” said Senator Lamar Alexander, Republican of Tennessee. “I think if the president recommended a solution to Congress and the American people, they might very well accept it.”
Now allow me to explain what is going on here for you Dear Readers. Trump is not stupid sorry but its true and he knows rounding up young quasi Americans who have lived their lives here and are productive, rounding them up and deporting them even if he could is a loser for him.
There is more truth. There is no reason to believe President Trump would deport them even if he could and that he sincerely wants them to stay. So why did he cancel DACA? That’s easy. It was of questionable legality and an opportunity to take credit by getting his name on new legislation to do so.
Besides, which from his perspective and his fellow Republicans, Trump gets pleasure from going after Obama and Clinton just as much as the reverse is true for Democratic so called leaders; but it gets better for Trump. Democrats need to cooperate with Trump to keep the Dreamers here just as so called Democratic Party leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are right now.
For me and you too, I hope all of us – neither fans of Trump or Schumer and Pelosi – but interested in the future of America and not just partisan politics; cooptation between Democrats and Republicans is good for our nation. So if Trump is smart enough to see the value in the “art of the deal” – both for America and his own legacy – political cooperation on the Dreamers could lead to a series of other agreements on various issues.
The only person I’m absolutely sure is NOT happy about such a prospect is Old Hillary, who wants Trump crushed no matter the cost for his audacity to take from her what she worked so hard to steal for herself – the Presidency. No I am not getting carried away; don’t worry. The Democrats are going to keep pounding away at their Trump-Russian conspiracy fantasy and Trump will continue doing things that damage America and most Americans and he will continue to be a bigot and even more of an idiot in other ways.
So this will be no love fest and we must continue to pray Trump LOSES in 2020, although it is far from certain he will if the Democratic Party remains hostage to the self-serving elites ruled over by the likes of the Obamas & Clintons. But let’s all agree as good Christians, Jews, Muslims, Atheists Humanitarians etc, etc. – Donald Trump’s soul is worth saving. Amen!
