No Deal, Donald Trump

January 19, 2019

Trump is to offer temporary protections for undocumented ‘dreamers’ in exchange for $5.7 billion for border wall.  Trump is expected to detail the proposal to Democrats in a rare Saturday address.  It comes as the record-breaking government shutdown entered its 29th day.
 
This will not fly, however, nor should it.  Playing politics with the lives of the Dreamers is most foul.  And to play with a temporary protection is still more foul.
 
There is also the fact that it is never a sound idea for someone who is holding a nation hostage, as Trump is doing, to be rewarded.  Such a cave-in sends a wrong message and it will be tried in the future.
 
Democrats must stay firm.  With Speaker Pelosi I am confident that will be the case.
