Trump knew DemoKKK rats wouldn’t take the deal. That’s why he offered it.
I’m glad Trump did this.
Only one bite at the apple.
What happens if SCOTUS ends DACA? Will these illegals then be deported? I sure hope so! Every last one of them. I dont care their age when they came, I do care that they came illegally, they can discuss that with their parents but it is not our problem. They need to leave.
Petty Pelosi smashing back by de-funding ICE.
N0te all the wailing and gnashing of teeth among a group of freepers when Trump made the offer. Some of us knew better and several said that that deal would never happen. Trump would not have made the offer did he think it would be accepted. Watch Trump overwhelm the Democrats at the SOTU.
“All of that was true then, and its still true today, but now its been reduced to ‘speculation’ that Trump might support a deal he flat-out put on the table himself.”
The article fails to mention that Pelosi said she was not interested in DACA. Trump withdrew the offer. He never stipulated to an unlimited time.
The article tries to portray Trump as acting in bad faith in negotiations. That’s a lie. He offered. They refused.
In negotiations one side does not get to claim ALL of the concessions or offers of the other and give NOTHING in return and then claim the other side is acting in bad faith.
The president was helping them out by putting something they claim to want on the table. Turns out there is nothing they want badly enough to allow Trump to build the wall.
But this will backfire on them when he builds the wall without their help and they get NOTHING.
The Democrats claimed that if the government was temporarily reopened they would negotiate. They are not negotiating. They lied. When the government gets shut down again, it is their fault for lying and acting in bad faith.
Deport all those nightmares back to their own countries... along with their parents.
It seems to me that a fundamental tenet of western society and commerce is goodwill. you extend goodwill towards your trading partner and he/she does the same for you. That is a prerequisite for effective dealmaking. If you take away goodwill, then you take away the possibility of making effective deals, because neither party has incentive to deal in good faith. In that situation, the strongest prevails against the weaker adversary. It is an adversarial relationship between the bargaining parties. It seems to me that the Democrats are dealing from a position of weakness and yet they refuse to deal in good faith. That is difficult for me to understand. What is the Democrat endgame? How can they somehow prevail by not dealing in good faith? What am I missing?
It would help if the media would give Trump even 10% of the credit due him. But as we all know, that ain't gonna happen.
I don't see much sign that the Democrats are off balance. It's the Senate Republicans who seem paralyzed.
Don’t doubt President Trump. You’ll likely be disappointed.
Offer up a plum until they walk out that door. Once it closes, offer rescinded.
Prosecutors use that tactic all the time and if its good enough for the government prosecutors I cant imagine why its not good enough for the President.
Besides that, most of these guys and gals have already voted as much and more in the past!
Its just Madame Lucy (aka Pelosi) and the football, now you see it, now you dont, flexing her testicles.
He will proceed with the wall using military assets without a state of emergency.
Democrats will oppose and obstruct so Trump will be forced to declare an emergency
The wall will get built and the Democrats will be left holding the bag with POed constituents wishing for what might have been on DACA and immigration concessions and a host of other agenda issues that they had leverage on in wall negotiations but have lost forever
The wall will get built which is a disaster for Dems because they have made it the metric for success with Trumps presidency
The wall has broad support and the more they obstruct, the worse things get for them as the old line blue collar and black vote walks and their illegal alien constituency they have calculated is their future gets militant and starts eating them alive
He knew they wouldn’t take it. That’s why he offered it. Now the damage to Pelosi is done and it’s off the table.
You also don’t mess with a junkyard dog.....
Junkyard dogs give Trump a wide berth, because they’re smarter than Nancy.
I read the article on another forum....pathetic hypothesis. Our President is the consummate deal maker who readily recognizes obstructionism.
My question.....we know what Our President wants...security and safety for all citizens....so, what does botox nan want other than a urinating match?
Ignoring the insane spin in the article, this is another bit of very good news today.
“...lying and acting in bad faith...”
Common practice for the democrat party....
