Posted on 09/07/2017 7:47:50 AM PDT by sickoflibs
President Donald Trump signaled support for signing a permanent deal to assist DACA recipients, giving amnesty to illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.
Chuck and Nancy would like to see something happen, and so do I, Trump said, referring to Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
(excerpt required clip).
The president suggested that ideal legislation would include border security funds and a permanent fix for DACA .
Id like to see a permanent deal, and I think its going to happen, he said. I think were going to have great support from both sides of Congress.

Look at the deal that Trump made with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer on the three month budget.
Pardon me while my breakfast turns into emesis.
No AMNESTY, deport these illegal aliens AND THEIR ILLEGAL ALIEN FAMILIES.
We need to know the ages of these Dreamers and how long they have been in the US.
He’s sticking it to the RINO’s.
One thing I’ve always found comical about the phrase, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is, which of the two enemies is your friend?
Which is worse, the enemy in your own family, or the enemy on the outside? Which is easier to fight?
He wants to see what will happen? You’ll lose your base pal and be a one term failed POTUS. You’re dealing with two traitors to the United States
This is how politics is supposed to be done. The legislative body ought to create legislation. The two parties should approach this in a bipartisan manner.
If Congress fails, they can’t blame Trump.
If Congress fails, we drop the EO and enforce the body of laws we already have — which works out badly for the criminal immigrants. Oh well.
I think Trump has positioned himself very well.
So you are saying that Pelosi and Schumer are now your friends?
Well if Trump legalizes these Dreamers permanently then they will vote for your new Democrat friends.
I recall when they passed Obamacare without a single GOP vote.
Imagine what they would do given another chance.
Therefore implying that there are those who DON'T like to see something happen...
I have to admit it’s been a bit of a letdown watching Trump deal/capitulate with the DEMs. My wife, who is usually much more of a “glass is full” person than I am when it comes to politics has been starting to question why she even voted for Trump.
That is how Planned Parenthood and Obamacare keep on being funded, working with Dems.
Why would they fail to get a bill now that Trump gave Ryan and McConnell the Green light to go for Democrat votes.
Trump owns everything he signs.
The kernel of my comment is in the last questions.
The phrase is a phrase with an understood meaning. The word “friend” is not to be taken literally.
The good news is that he is ramping up the pressure on the R’s to do their frickin’ job and grow a pair. We tire of this #uniparty nonsense.
“Hes sticking it to the RINOs.”
I agree - the Dems may well give him his wall in exchange for DACA. It seems the RINOs are more hell-bent against the wall than even the Dems.
Trump is rightfully pissed at the RINOs and Republican leaders, particularly regarding the Wall. It was the keystone of his campaign, costs next to nothing (relatively speaking), and more than pays for itself in lowering illegal immigration.
Yet the RINOs seem DETERMINED to still stop the wall, which makes me think that the RINOs actually want his presidency to fail (since there’s really no other reason to block the wall). So, given that, what, exactly, is worse about dealing with the Democrats, who also want the same thing?
And it is more difficult for Democrats to stab you in the back.
Sounds like he is ramping up the pressure for them to give in on yet MORE of Pelosi and Schumer's demands.
I assume that Chuck and Nance (I’m closer to her than Trump is) want the Dreamers legalized.
Therefore, if Ryan and McConnell don’t want anything to happen, they are on the other side of Nance and Chuckie (we are very close).
Therefore, we now support Chuck and Nancy and their quest for amnesty to 1 million Dreamers.
Do I have this correct?
Bill Clinton triangulated. Trump thinking about doing the same thing. This deal would have happened anyways.
Bottom line, they couldn’t get McCain’s vote for Repeal; that would have changed everything.
Ryan and McConnell are not friends of Trump.
That’s what can happen to Never(support)Trumpers.
I doubt this will be enough to get PRyno’s and Ditch’s attention, but we will see.
Shades of Bush Sr, and his bipartisan agreement that killed his read my lips pledge.
