President Trump assured us of two things absolutely during the campaign. There would be no amnesty and the border wall would be built. Now word is coming that President Trump has “negotiated” in a manner not unlike the “negotiating” of John Kerry in the Iran deal, an immigration agreement with top Democrats.
Surrendering is not negotiating. Holding a fire sale is not negotiating. Giving away your leverage is not negotiating. It’s hard to believe this is coming from the same guy who wrote The Art of The Deal.
In a press release from President Trump’s new BFF’s “Chuck and Nancy,” comes word that the two high profile promises are not being kept. President Trump has agreed to amnesty and has failed to deliver on the border wall.
In a joint statement Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer stated, “We had a very productive meeting at the White House with the President. The discussion focused on DACA. We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides.”
There should be no such thing as a “package of border security” that doesn’t include a wall. It’s a “package of kidding yourself” or a package of pretending you have border security wrapped in money. The only package that should be acceptable, and in light of his being hell-bent on amnesty concessions, must include full funding for the border wall.
President Trump once said something to the effect of he could kill a guy on a street corner in New York and his supporters would still stand by him. That might have been true, it might even still be true, but lying to us about the wall is not the same thing as killing somebody.
Leaving us vulnerable to more of the same social and cultural degradation is not the same as killing somebody. Leaving us open to invasion and the continued onslaught of illegal drugs is not the same as killing somebody. That’s killing our nation and it looks like we’ve been played for fools.
Everyone says that Trump has something up his sleeve, that he’s weaving some magic and nobody will see what hit them. The Trump supporters right now are the ones feeling like they just got his by something, a sledgehammer, bag of hammers, ton of bricks.
Looking at what the triumvirate of Pelosi, Schumer and Trump just brought us, there are a lot of people who are simply just sick to their stomachs of what has happened to this presidency. Some of them who lost children stood on stage with President Trump as he promised immigration enforcement. One of them told me she’s “utterly floored” at the news, stunned at the apparent betrayal.
Pelosi and Schumer could be exaggerating or President Trump could change his mind. If he doesn’t, a lot of Americans will most certainly change their minds about him.
He could kill someone in New York; he can’t get away with this.
