” Trump explicitly offered this deal on January 19th,”

And it was rejected. When you reject an offer, or make a counter offer, the original offer is vaporized. The offeror doesn’t have to commit to any part of it.

Is this that Morrissey guy who seems to spend all his time changing his mind.

I used to think he supported President Trump, and after several of his screeds, I can’t figure exactly WHAT he supports.

The dims change their minds all the time. Vote for the wall. No, vote against the wall. No wait, vote for the wall.

And we are supposed to be absolutely consistent. Fudge you.

He offered the deal. They refused it.

A deal once offered and refused, is known as “no deal.”

Brilliant tactic Nancy. How’s that workin’ for ya?

Trump will build the wall, and DACA will remain an issue into the future. You could have resolved it with Trump.

Frankly, I’m glad you didn’t, but that’s the truth of it.

You screwed up royally Ms. Pelosi.

Boy, Did anyone just see Martha MacCword’s interview with Trump’s 2020 campaign manager? Asking him “fair and balanced” questions about Trump being impeached, and how he can work for someone who (gasp!) goes on Twitter and talks about himself.

Complete BS!

Trump's offer was for congressional DACA legislation (without a path to citizenship) in exchange for congressional wall funding legislation.

If congress doesn't give him this and he is forced to do executive action, that deal is dead. He then owes congress nothing on DACA and could and should do wall funding on its own.

Never Trump Morrissey's writings should be posted with Barf Alerts for all who may forget!

no concessions would be made on DACA until the Supreme Court took up the challenges to its constitutionality

Yes! Let's bring the Constitution into the discussion.

But this will backfire on them when he builds the wall without their help and they get NOTHING.

Maybe he'll accept their deal of 22 billion and build the wall anyway using other funds...

Morrissey knows very well that the issue of DACA’s constitutionally and the Supreme Court DOES NOT apply to congressional action - but only executive actions that Trump would take if they do not act.

Morrissey, in RINO slime fashion, is demanding that Trump give the Democrats what they want even if they refuse giving him what he wants. Just the type of deal RINOs have been making for decades.

If the Democrats don’t make a deal, Trump will build the wall using his own authority, and the Democrats will get nothing.

"Hey Pelosi says no wall ever. Trump reacts in kind and with hopefully the SCOTUS on his side too:-)"

==========

SCOTUS deadlocked 4-4 on DAPA, effectively defeating the program by deferring to the Appeals Court decision. They are a bit more conservative now with Gorsuch and Kavanaugh on board. When DACA litigation from the States AG suit reaches them the chances are not good that Obongo's notion will survive.

No, I believe he woke up to where he said that DACA was not constitutional and needed to go to the USSC.

If he started making deals that ultimately support an unconstitutional freedom destroyer, how would he look? Not good in most open minded peoples thoughts.

The transcript is on the official White House website, for Pete’s sake, and the video is easily accessible:

So??

ALL of the voices and votes of the Dems who were FOR a wall ten years ago are available; too; but do THEY get any traction in the media?
