Don Surber Says Trump Just Showed Congress it is His Town.
President Trump just did something no other president nor the Founding Fathers could pull off.
He negotiated a major piece of legislation right before the nation’s unblinking eyes, live and in living color.
He brought reporters and cameras in to watch an hour of negotiating between him and 22 members of Congress.
This was unprecedented.
Unpresidential, some may say.
For a fellow who is supposed to be so authoritarian — so unconstitutional — so oppressive, President Trump sure was being open.
The press yammers about transparency and accountability.
They could not handle real transparency.
He knew they could not. That is why he did it.
There before the eyes of everyone Trump showed who is president and who ultimately decides whether we grant amnesty to a million people who should not be here out of the estimated 12 million illegal aliens who also should not be here.
The clock is ticking.
Trump doesn’t need a deal.
He got what he wanted out of the meeting: a photo op that shows Trump — not Congress — is in charge.
I like Don Surber, but I don’t need style, innovation and command over substance. DACA can end the Trump presidency if it goes badly. These are tense times. I have faith in the president, but this cannot end in any amnesty, no matter what we get in return.
We want the wall and enough legislation put in place where illegals start to self-deport.
The ones that remain should be prioritized by ICE. Anyone here illegally that gets government assistance in any form should be deported. Anyone with any trouble with the law should be deported. When we get to solid citizens that own property and pay taxes, maybe we get soft-hearted. We’ll see what kind of mood we’re in.
