The President told us all along that he was in the business of making deals with the (((opposing side))) in this country, but we just assumed it would be in a manner benefiting us more than anything else.
Well, turns out that some of the “doomsayers” were right all along.
President Donald Trump’s unexpected decision to spurn his Republican allies in Congress by striking a short-term debt-limit deal with Democrats leaves the GOP reeling and lawmakers bracing for a bruising battle in December.
Trump’s move undercut GOP leaders in the House and Senate, as well as his own Treasury secretary, who had been arguing for a longer-term extension. It also left Republicans, who were blindsided by the deal, angry and disappointed with their own leaders and, to a lesser degree, Trump.
“Democrats got exactly what they wanted,” House Freedom Caucus head Mark Meadows said Wednesday, adding that the deal “gives them the greatest leverage in the world to get exactly what they want later.” At a Bloomberg News breakfast Thursday, he said his caucus can’t stop the deal.
During an Oval Office meeting Wednesday, Trump accepted a proposal by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and his House counterpart, Nancy Pelosi, to tie a three-month suspension of the debt limit to a Hurricane Harvey relief measure — and throw in a stopgap continuing resolution to fund the government into December.
They’re talking about a “bruising battle” like the American people actually care about budgets, deficits, and juggling of numbers that mean little to the average individual fighting to feed his family.
What they care about involving this struggle is The Wall, and the revocation of DACA combined with the subsequent deportation of the Dreamer Apes.
Don’t be so confident that our Glorious Leader/God Emperor will take care of that, either.
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.
“I said if we can get something to happen, we’re going to sign it and we’re going to make a lot of happy people,” he added.
Trump remained vague about what he would do if Congress failed to deliver a DACA fix in six months.
“I want to see what happens in Congress. I have a feeling that’s not going to be necessary,” Trump said. “I think they’re going to make a deal.”
The president suggested that ideal legislation would include border security funds and a permanent fix for DACA .
“I’d like to see a permanent deal, and I think it’s going to happen,” he said. “I think we’re going to have great support from both sides of Congress.”
