Rep Steve King is a stalwart, trusted defender of American sovereignty and an immigration hawk, probably the most committed to border security and immigration enforcement of any member of Congress. The news of President Trump’s illicit dinnertime deal with “Chuck and Nancy” to emulate Obama and legislate his amnesty didn’t go over well.
President Trump’s agreeing to Democrat amnesty demands is bad enough and a betrayal of a campaign promise in its own right. He compounded that offense against the American people by refusing to demand that they compromise with him on the border wall.
That’s a two-fer against the American patriots from the man they trusted, the man they believed in to return our nation to the people, President Trump. Clearly we may have misjudged the President.
Upon hearing the news representative King tweeted, “@RealDonaldTrump If AP is correct, Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible.” [TWEET BELOW]
That’s about as succinctly and all encompassing of a tweet as one will ever read. The base is blown up for certain. He’ll now likely continue to align himself with the Democrats on even more issues and reward them for obstructing his agenda with his support of theirs.
Was this the reason he brought globalist into the White House and kept the Obama holdovers in place? If his is to become a third Obama term then the idea doesn’t seem so ludicrous and it’s the only sensible explanation for the staffing decisions and the reluctance to prosecute Democrat offenders.
Were we played? Was the reason so many things didn’t add up because huge pieces of the puzzle were missing such as the true agenda and President Trump’s real positions and intentions? These are not questions anyone who supported President Trump ever wanted to ask but his actions have made it impossible not to.
This is not a good day for America and it is a particularly dark one for those of us who campaigned hard for President Trump. He didn’t make his promises to Congressional Republicans, the same useless swamp creatures he thinks he’s gotten the better of. He made them to the American people who believed him. They are the people he has turned his back on. Two of his most solemn pledges have been tossed out like last week’s garbage.
Rep King said the relationship with the President is irreparable. Time will tell, it’s certainly very damaged. Whether or not he follows through with the threatened bad deals will tell us if it can be salvaged rather quickly. As for no promise being credible. King’s right, if he’ll turn his back on his word in these cases, he’ll betray us on anything.
President Trump may not yet realize what he’s unleashed upon himself, but he soon will.
