President Donald Trump holds a press conference aboard Air Force One, talks Irma, Iran deal, DACA and more…
More than ever our President needs us today, tomorrow and the day after that, just as much as we need him.
He has my support and the support of many other Americans who want to MAGA!!

I need some guidance here. Hypothetically speaking, if the wall is not built, should we continue support Trump?

If the wall isn’t built, it will be the fault of Congress – just like Obamacare. There are more of them who don’t want it than do.
So the answer is: Yes, we should continue to support Trump. It is Congress we should not support. We should primary every single one of them who doesn’t support the wall.
Trump can only do so much without the help of Congress. He is not the one we are fighting. Don’t lose sight of that fact.

Sorry, no it won’t be the fault of congress, this will assuredly be layed right at the feet of Donald Trump if he doesn’t get the wall. And if what I have been reading is true, if he has made some kind of DACA deal before assurance for the wall then that sounds crazy. Maybe there is some plan he has that we don’t understand. But at minimum this has been a communications disaster. He better get this back on track tomorrow and explain what is going on – he owes that to his supporters.

He gives up a billionaire’s lifestyle and you think he owes YOU? And you call yourself a supporter? More like ‘supporter’.
So, according to you, James, it is President Trump’s fault that the recovery effort in Florida is going so smoothly that the Fake Media was casting about for anything that it could use as a negative story. And then it is also the president’s fault that our minority leaders in congress deliberately lie about something (and of course we’ve never known them to lie about anything). And then Breitbart loses what little mind it has left, pushes a story from The Hill about these lies, and that has got to be the president’s fault also. I don’t remember any of this being part of President Trump’s job description, to be in charge, and responsible for, the Fake News Media, the lying congressional minority leaders, and a dumbed-down Breitbart News.
I agree that it has been a communications disaster. I just don’t buy that any of this is either the president’s fault or concern. Do you have a safe place you can go to, until you are feeling better?

This is SO sickening.

We won’t miss you if you wanna jump off the Trump Train.
It might actually move faster.
I received an email today from Donald J. Trump. In the subject line it says, in all caps, LET ME BE CLEAR so I thought ooh, I’d better read this. It said:
“There’s been a lot of noise today and a lot of rumors.
Let me set the record straight in the simplest language possible…
…WE WILL BUILD A WALL (NOT A FENCE) ALONG THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO HELP STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND KEEP AMERICA SAFE.
Apparently, liberals in Congress and the mainstream media need one more reminder that building the wall is non-negotiable.”
Now, I want that wall real bad so I try to stay current on news about it. It isn’t happening fast enough for me, LOL, because I wanted it done Inauguration Day! But seriously, realistically, I am familiar with government procurement processes. This stuff takes time. They are building four prototypes to evaluate, so I think it is going along pretty well for a government process.

Do you need the SIX PAGES OF “TRUMP’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS FIRST IN THE 200 DAYS” to hammer it into your head that Trump has done more FOR this country in six months than ANY OTHER PRESIDENT in a CENTURY!??!
SHEESH, get it through your skull that Trump is NOT A KING, he is working with an extremely hostile Congress, Government and Republican party and STILL WINNING!
Deplorables could probably get that blasted wall built using private donations if needed if President Trump asked it of us. However what President Trump really wants is not only our full support but help in ousting the hostile representatives and senators.
So instead of complaining, if you want the darn wall built, do some research and get moving on helping elect PATRIOTS to seats in Congress!

The wall will be built. The president is old school.meaning his word is his bond. Man of his word. I look for Mexico to pay for the wall when the nafta negotiations are done. I don’t think it will be like a one-time payment or anything like that. I think he is going to get more money in the budget if they ever pass one. Yesterday he sounded like he was saying that it is not ready to build like maybe permits , court, stuff like that. But what is ready ..like redoing and upgrading is being done as I type. Also from what he said yesterday he is not talking amnesty. Right now daca is not legal. I think he is talking about congress making them some kind of legal work permit. If he is not talking amnesty that’s all it could be. But make no mistake the republicans are now acting like they are against amnesty. Don’t be fooled they are paid well to want amnesty. The president is not.
Yes. Whats the alternative? We are fried for ever without him. Look at Hillary on TV for one minute and you will realize the danger for us and our country if we not firmly support Trump. She is bad but the prospectives are even worse among the available democrats.
If the Wall isn’t built… Alas, who else do we have?
You can lead a horse to knowledge, but you can’t make it think!
tony5460, the correct question would be – “if the wall is not built, what we should do to replace the members of congress (house and senate) working against the MAGA agenda of our President”.
If you read Sundance’s post on how close we were on DACA amnesty – just because one Eric got Cantored, it stopped the swamp critters at that time. Imagine if President Trump’s supporters will Cantor the likes of Paul Ryan, Mitch, McCain, Sasse, Flake,etc. I guarantee that President Trump will not have to go to Democrats any more and it will be the other way around – the Democrats will be falling over each other to work with President Trump.
YES, no question! Trump is working hard everyday to fullfil his promises, he is not a dictator, he needs congress to vote, we all know dems and gop are against him, so for me he already acomplish a lot with the limited support he has in a very short time. What are really his options? Frontal confrontation and the Ann Coulter way won’t get him anywhere, he is not playing “politics” the old fashion way, winning for him is not to be re-elected in 2020, is not to get more donations and fundraising, is not to get rich , Trump is using war strategies with one goal and one goal only : MAGA.
The big picture here is that we were loosing our country to the Uniparty and globalist, imagine if Hillary was the president, we have a chance now and the more vital part more than even what Trump does or doesn’t do is US, we are vital for his success, you do not win all the battles in a war, you make mistakes you learn, you adapt , you change strategies , what you don’t have the luxury to do is to get tired and retreat, of course you have to believe the war you fight its worth to be fight for, I do.
Note.- excuse my poor english, I sound smarter in spanish!
I won’t because it won’t happen with the next guy.
AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE–TRUMP 100%. MAGA. Breitbart trolls–stuff it. I am doing as I have been–focusing on the lonely battle to educate the political middle of the road, and battle the leftist loons, on Facebook (when not cleaning up after the latest doxxing).

And waiting for the other shoe to drop– because it always does, doesn’t it?

Sundance has gone dark. We are in big trouble, folks!
what are you talking about?
I am with Trump and am reserving judgement until we see how this plays out. However amnesty in any way, shape or form would be a reason for me to re-evaluate.
Reevaluation in that situation would be helpful but that involves at the moment dancing in a realm of hypothetical and we don’t know enough at the moment.
Also I think you meant to respond to someone else or another of my posts as that was off topic.
Re-evaluate what.Get on the train or get off,there is no in between.
I have supported Trump since a month after his announcement and have only convicted him using his own words…….I expect him to keep his word which is a breath of fresh air from a politician but I will also hold him to account when he doesn’t or when what he SAYS makes it looks like he isn’t….some of these newer posters maybe BB or gaslightres but I have defended Trump on these same boards……however when he says they can stay but “no amnesty” that is not true….their staying IS amnesty as current LAW calls for their deportation
I reiterate that I am doing what TRUMP said to only believe it if HE says it and use his own words to gauge his conduct….he also told us we needed to “hold his feet to the fire at times” so those that fret when we do are the ones being hysterical
Staying doesn’t mean amnesty. Green card holders don’t vote. Congress already said they will override him if he deports, plus most Americans don’t want them deported.
Congress will override him…? Most Americans don’t want them deported…? Do you have reference data to support those two claims?
During the campaign, President Trump told us repeatedly that he would remove Dangerous, Criminal, Illegal Invaders FIRST.
THEREFORE, giving DACA people who ARE NOT Dangerous Criminals, six months before removing them is completely in line with what he said during the campaign.
SO QUIT TRYING TO TWIST HIS WORDS!
You are as bad as Politico, the Washington Compost, the New York Slime and Congress who toss a tandy because Trump stated what we all know is true; there is “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides” and that some “very fine people” were among the white nationalist marchers. Many of those “very fine people” were American Patriots upset about the removal of American History but per usual got incorrectly branded with the ‘white nationalist racist Nazi’ brush that the Yellow Stream Media continually uses.

Once I hear Trump speak it calms me down. It will always be Us vs. The Swamp. Trump never lets up and eventually the Dumbass Repubichairs and Democraps will get caught by their short and curlies screaming and Trump will steamroll his agenda thru.
Dear Hystericals (thanks, Bluto) who come here to wail:
1. President Trump ended Obama’s unconstitutional DACA
2. The only way DACA gets revived is if Congress revives it through legislation.
3. If you don’t want DACA revived, HOUND CONGRESS!
Problem is Trump essentially telegraphed to congress that he wants them to legalize them…
he also telegraphed to congress that he wants them to repeal and replace Zerocare
NO! He told them to do their jobs!! If they (meaning Congress) want amnesty, they have to own it. Period. That will shed the light on those that want to go against the will of the people and then the process can begin to root them out using the processes handed down from our Founding Fathers. Get a FN grip CuriousimAz.
Ownership. That’s what it’s all about. Something that Congress and Senate have been unwilling to do for the last 50 or so years when it comes to illegal immigration. Make them own it. Great job Mr. President.
Just curious, what is your excuse? Are you really as dumb as you appear in your post? Or, are you trying to be thought provoking?
AND the Electorate telegraphed to congress that WE DO NOT wants them to legalize when we ousted Eric Cantor.
Even the New York Slimes figured out that immigration is one VERY hot potato!
The Democratic Party Is in Worse Shape Than You Thought – The New York Times
“[…] Democratic pollsters, strategists and sympathetic academics have reached some unnerving conclusions. What the autopsy reveals is that Democratic losses among working class voters were not limited to whites….
Equally disturbing, winning back former party loyalists who switched to Trump will be tough: these white voters’ views on immigration and race are in direct conflict with fundamental Democratic tenets…
Priorities also studied Obama-to-Trump voters. Estimates of the number of such voters range from 6.7 to 9.2 million, far more than enough to provide Trump his Electoral College victory. The counties that switched from Obama to Trump were heavily concentrated in the Midwest and other Rust Belt states.
To say that this constituency does not look favorably on the Democratic Party fails to capture the scope of their disenchantment. […]”
Do you really think those now awakened working class voters are not paying attention to what their Congress Critters are doing?
Anything that even SMELLS like Amnesty at this point is a live grenade and Trump just lobbed that live grenade directly into the lap of Congress. Hence the histronics about Trump ‘betraying’ his base by the MSM. They are busy trying to lob that live grenade back at Trump.
That boils it down, nicely!
Speaking of that, I received an email today from a Congressman who used to be my Rep before they redistricted. I live in a blue district in a blue state, so he is a big time Dim and useless as you might imagine.
His email was about DACA and asking me what I wanted and hastening to assure me he will do everything for the little dears. Well, he did ask!!!! So even though he’s no longer my Rep I decided to email him my feedback. That was kind of fun!
Hounding Congress does no good. Did it help with repeal and replace? They are on a hate-fueled mission of destruction.
Prayer is all I will rely on. Just like during the campaign.
That’s how our system works. Find good MAGA ppl and help your district and State primary these Bozo’s.
The issue IMO is that DACA is the biggest bargaining chip we have to get a wall…giving away that leverage and getting essentially nothing is a BAD deal…
I get your point. I just think PDJT has something else in mind to get it done. I’m still confident we’re getting The Wall.
Trump himself said yesterday if no wall then he will obstruct everything else
I’m in. PDJT is my guy. For me, PDJT is a case of “you can’t always get what you want, but maybe sometimes you get what you need.” Turns out, PDJT is exactly what we need.
There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t like him more and admire what he is doing for us. It goes so far beyond what I ever imagined was possible.
The freak-out is over the ***DACA program. Fudged numbers? Fraudulent SS numbers? Fraudulent names? Illegal aliens in our military? IDK. BUT. Something is causing mass “panic”.

***Remember Tyson Corp. was indicted for trafficking illegal aliens to work in every processing plant they own. TRAFFICKING!
Let that sink in.
(Did they get gov help to forge the neccessary documents?)

I agree–there is something more going on here with this DACA freak-out drama that we don’t know about, but President Trump knows–thank goodness. That’s good enough for me. He may be laying down a trap for Fake Congress. We’ll know soon enough, at the right time.
Of COURSE he is laying down a trap. That’s how he does it and, yep, every. single. time. fools rush in and get caught. It’s a beautiful thing to watch. Winning!

I’m not a fake Trump supporter. But we’ve got to be honest with ourselves. At minimum this is a massive, massive, massive communications failure. I don’t know what the problem is – is this from Donald Trump or from his advisors. If this is due to his advisors they need to be fired – everyone of them. And if Jared and Ivanka had a role in this they need to be sent back to NYC. Right now it looks like Steve Bannon was exactly right in what he has been saying. The Dems and the Never Trumpers are praising this – what does that tell you?. This is insane. Maybe there is some kind of plan he has – I hope so. But he needs to get this back on the track right now. Tomorrow! And by the way, if he is going to legalize DACA and not build the wall he needs to look Mary Ann Mendoza and those other Angel Moms in the eye and tell them first.
A massive communications failure, I see. Thank you for your deep understanding of the liberal media’s taking points. In case you haven’t noticed, we are in a civil war with Democrats, the Deep State and the GOP establishment party pounding on P45 like an extra strength Irma on a daily basis. Get a grip on yourself, be realistic, support our President and stop all this silly conjecture.
Exactly. Anyone that has to preface their post with ” I’m not a fake Trump supporter” and then goes on with all kinds of threats….is.
Bullcrap! I am. Trump supporter bug time, BUT I don’t like what I’m hearing. He seems to be panicking because Congress isn’t doing what he wants. So he goes to the deepest part of the swamp to compromise? Let congress fail and HOPE that Americans will Cantor their butts. I HOPE I’m wrong, but he seems to be caving.
Big time, not bug time.
There was no massive communication failure. Schumer and Pelli lied.
Why are you believing statements from democrats and mainstream media more than the official white house statements or Trump himself? If you think that Trump’s a chump who will get played by demented Pelosi who calls hims Bush or by Schumer who couldnt find his ass then nobody can help you.
Haven’t you left yet?
James! You are spouting nonsense. “if he is going to legalize DACA”? Please tell us HOW President Trump is going to legalize DACA? He got rid of an Obama EO that tried to legalize DACA, because it was unconstitutional. If anyone is going to legalize DACA, it will be the congress-critters. By postponing implementation 6 months, the president has laid this clearly at the feet of those who should be creating bills and laws to govern such things . . . Congress. Congress now has six months to come up with a bill, pass it through the committees, and then vote on it, if they wish it to be a law.
James, if you have been reading comments, you know this. You know that the wall is in the first stages of being built. You know that the president isn’t responsible for formulating and passing laws. And you know that DACA was creating out of whole cloth by the previous president, in an illegal EO. If you are a real supporter of President Trump, you really need to keep better informed. Because right now you sound just like the trolls over at Breitbart.
Janice, Trump is openly stating he wants DACA to be upheld. From his on mouth. He’s encouraging Congress to keep it! He’s bragging stating that Ryan, McConnell and the REST of the swamp creatures agree with him. Of course they do, they’re globalists!
There are no “fake” Trump supporters, unless you are speaking for yourself. And that is PRESIDENT TRUMP to you. POTUS supporters are not sheep, which make us smarter than the average bear. We don’t need others to tell us what to think, but thanks for you incredible insight!

The DACA situation is confusing. From what I can tell these people are ‘human contraband’ smuggled in to the USA by parents and others as minors. The parents should be considered ‘smugglers’ for evading customs. This is an unusual legal situation. Maybe an ‘impact fee’ could be imposed.
And if it was dealt with under the law, from the beginning, we would not have this “problem”. Purposeful destruction of a nation.
human trafficking, Howie. for all the hand-wringing press that’s gotten the past few years.
The give away is the two year rule. Everything that states
and feds do under the smokescreen of “charity” “equality”
“benevolence” occurs two years prior to a federal election.
1976 Presidential elections? 1974 Section 8 laws ( massive
blockbusting occurred.) Ask anyone that grew up in Westchester
County, NY. Or South Dekalb County, Ga. Or Prince George’s
County, MD. For starters.
1988 Presidential elections? Immigration amnesty, Section 8,
part two, Low Income Housing Tax Credits, “Fair Housing” laws
( made singles only complexes illegal. Destroyed many neighborhoods
who’s schools couldn’t take the sudden onslaught from vast
complexes up the road).
All of these edicts, laws have the affect of changing the
ELECTORATE or cancelling prior resident’s votes in a given area.
The one YTG caught in Georgia occurred (again) two years
prior to an event. It wasn’t an election. The event was the 1990
census. The Georgia Department of Community Affairs
determines the “need” for “affordable housing” in every county
in the state of Georgia. All 150+ of them.
They send out a color keyed map, showing all the counties.
The different colors displayed show if an area has a “need”
or if the “need” is currently met. 1997’s map showed that all
the populated counties around Atlanta metro had no additional
need for “affordable housing”. 1998’s map had vastly different
color coding in these same counties. The need was increased
exponentially. Two years prior to the census being counted.
Two years prior to electoral districts being re- apportioned.
Oops. Got ahead of myself. Meant to say the 2000 census.
I guess I felt the need to abuse myself and get frustrated this morning. I went to Breitbart Yet again the articles were all Trump is bad, he’s flipped. The cause is lost, the sky is falling. The trolls are running the comments and the BB loyalist are falling in line lockstep. I again abused myself by trying to support POTUS, I fought valiantly, but alas stupid is as stupid does. The Gateway Pundit it appears is rebranding the same caca, but to a far lessor degree. I come here to soothe the savage beast. I know Sundance is wrapped up doing his best in the situation he is in, thank God!! For you guys who lift my Spirits.
I was over there at Breitbart when the initial flood of trolls came in, in response to The Hill article being posted. I can only imagine that lots of checks cleared for the trolls, and they were being paid per posting on top of that. Now, I admit that I love conspiracy theories, but this was just way too obvious as a concerted effort to attack our president and his policies. He seems to have struck a nerve, when he removed that illegal EO that created the DACA policy. For me, that means he is going in the right direction. When you are right over the target, you pick up more flak.
I am nimrodman and I support PresTrump in his maneuvers …
… and I have little doubt that’s exactly what is happening.
I remain “Zen”.
The Tree House is a rock in the middle of the raging stream of GOPe, MSM and even squishy “conservative” blatherings.
Personally, I would be willing to trade DACA for a wall, e-verify, and RAISE act … if it were a clean and simple trade.
HOWEVER, the thing about DACA is that while there is a clear definition of who qualifies as a “Dreamer” what is not clear is WHO qualifies going forward i.e. from 2017 and on.
It is one thing to swallow up 800,000 or 1 million … we cut our losses and enjoy the benefits of a wall and tighter screening. BUT is the number is 800,00 today + 800,000 in 5 years + another 800,000 in 2030 then we would have given up DACA for a wall with a great big ‘ole hole in the middle of it.
As of now, I have zero confidence in ANY politician and have full confidence in President Trump. Politicians have done nothing but lie, lie, lie, and lie for years and years. Trump has been the ONLY person to have actually delivered thus far. I will remain optimistic that Trump is working both sides and will achieve something that we call all live with and be proud of.
“I would be willing to trade…..”, and there-in lies the rub. Hold on to your convictions or perish. The conditioning is working very well, so it seems.
Perfect is the Enemy of Good. My deep-down conviction is . . . that I might not understand everything, or know everything. Therefore, my concepts about perfection could easily get in the way of what is truly good enough. There has to be a balance between keeping an open and inquiring mind, and having convictions. I question whether it is my real convictions, or just plain stubbornness, that keeps me on a certain path. It is this self-reflection that helps to assure me that I am, indeed, progressing.
Remember, if President Trump does nothing else he saved us from Hillary Clinton!
And a whole bunch of RINOs like Jeb.
Calm, calm, calm. We continue to support PDJT. No worries. Remember, when the chicken clucks loudest it’s laying a BIG egg. Calm, calm, calm……….
I can tell you as much: when the attacks – divide/conquer – on Trumps base even reach the headlines of MSM news in Norway, something fishy is on. Its planned and very well organized. The same pattern occurred during the election and the muh Russia thing. The Uniparty puppet strings reach far and wide. Even if I’m Norwegian – I’m MAGA. Trumps’ MAGA politics has positive impacts even here – changing the globalist and PC mindset.
“Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!…..” Absolutely. Anything less is amnesty. Every illegal with a job, took that job from an American.
Exactly! He’s caving! What about the Americans and what these DREAMERS are stealing from them and the others legally WAITING in line to enter LEGALLY. This is RIDICULOUS? This shouldn’t even be an issue! Trump is openly encouraging congress to pass DACA!
Stay tight, close ranks. Don’t go off the deep end at every little news item. Wait and see what happens. How may times during the campaign did we hear that Trump was done, his base was leaving him. As an American and a Christian I truly believe that President Trump is our best hope. It will not be easy, it will not be quick. I pray daily for him and his family. My goodness…for some on here..the sky is always falling
I pray for him, too. But I’m not liking what I’m hearing.
Is this the same CTH I’ve been visiting like – forever? Seems like some of the loyal supporters of PT have been kidnapped by body snatchers or something. Hard to believe there are some who are perfectly willing to be jerked…..around by the BS flying around these days. Keep a stiff upper lip. PT has this…stay focused.
Remington, I hope you are right but when I read tweet from the man himself defending the DACA recipients as educated, accomplished persons and to top it he tugs on our heart strings with “some serving in military”, what do you think he is trying to convey?
It is our job to remind the President his promise of being a law and order President – and he cannot be a selectively law and order President. What is the difference between him and Obama if he picks and choose regarding what law and order he wants it to be followed and be a President of?
I am not easily swayed, but I read his tweet defending DACA people to be accomplished and yada yada and that has kind of set me off and you see my responses to you and other folks downthread. I have NEVER responded on CTH to more than one people or have commented more than once this frequently on the same thread but YES I am mighty upset when I read the tweet from President defending DACA folks. I would expect such tweets from Ryan, McConnell, Pelosi, Schumer, Rubio, Cruz, Graham, etc. but not from THE DON – simply because he is not a politician (in my and many other folks mind).
The only thing POTUS has in governing is his loyal voter base. The outcry from some quarters of POTUS’s base on DACA could at the same time be a good thing in term of POTUS’s negotiation leverage so long as it does not divide us in our support of POTUS. The Dimms & RINOs will soon realize how far POTUS can go in a DACA/WALL-RAISE deal.
Now, this, I can agree with. I think it’s good, even necessary, for the President to hear the opinions and concerns of his base. The President’s tweets are clear indications that he is paying attention to his base. However, it becomes counterproductive when the outcries morph into disturbingly vitriolic and divisive responses. Every time that happens, the Uniparty, MSM, Deep State, NeverTrumpers, and way-far-out-there-Left score a victory against us.
mysticrose80, I would disagree with you regarding the outcry being vitriolic and divisive? Of course I have not read the comments that lead you to this conclusion but unless we voice our disagreement how will the President know that his base disagrees with him and his sentiments on DACA?
Rush has been right for months, that if anybody can turn “Trumpsters” (I hate it when he use this term) against Trump it will be Trump himself. I think President Trump has misjudged his base – he is right that he will not lose a single supporter if he shoots someone on 5th Avenue, but I guarantee you that he will lose lot of his base if he grants even ONE DACA recipient any sort of legal status. I hope our dear President understand this simple fact and not take us for granted.
Local talk radio very revealing in Volusia County Florida. Not a bad thing to say about Trump, which is never the case. They were actually giddy and complimentary on his negotiations with Pelosi and Schumer. “After all the American’s that have level heads want action.
Labeling any Trump supporter who is concerned about current events as hard right obstructionists and creatively lumping us in with the left and Antifa. Repeating the narrative that Trump’s “real” base isn’t actually that concerned about the details, we just want something, anything done.
This steadfast Trump supporter couldn’t disagree more. The details are all that matters. I could care less what goon in the senate raises their hand and declares “AYE”, as long as it conforms with Trump’s promised agenda.
The sky is not falling!
I still stand with my president, just as firm in my trust as I was the day he announced….no actually more so.
My MAGA sign still adorns my yard, and I have no inclination to change that.
Some of these folks need to go back and read The Art of the Deal
My family stands with President Trump.
Do your job — Congress!
Volgarian8301, I share your sentiment as of today. But I hope you will not hesitate to rip that sign the day President Trump, if at all, signs into law, legalizing just one DACA recipient.
I am President Trump’s supporter and not his fan. I forgive people for their misdeeds but not for their broken promises – h311, I don’t forgive my parents for that matter whom I love to death.
If even one DACA recipient is made legal, irrespective of his/her heart tugging story, by President Trump, for me that would mean he has broken his promise to be a law and order President and he is now a politician just like Ryan, McConnell, Pelosi and Schumer.
Flame me all you want fellow treepers for this sentiment that I carry and probably tag me as temp. Trump train boarder, but as of today I still see the Candidate Trump declaring himself to be the candidate for President of United States and although I see his tweets defending those illegal DACA guys as holding good jobs, etc. I will like to believe that he will keep his promise he gave to the angel moms and dads of deporting these people who unwillingly broke the law. The argument President is giving is laughable at best – what next, he is going to let the bank robbers children keep the loot?
His own words.
Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!…..

I want to believe there is some Ninja shit going on behind the scenes but this discourages me.
Yeah, I hope he is playing some sort of game here!
Yes, Yes I do, they are here illegally.
He should actually meet some of these paragons! I ran into one a few weeks ago and was shocked at her anger and bitterness. Plus, what did she want to do with her degree. Social Justice Work!
They may be Trojans! (As in Trojan Horse)
Mr. President. Yes. I do want them out and come back legally because they will not be here in this country if not for being here illegally. And this is coming from an immigrant who followed the law, stayed away from his wife and infant child for 5-6 years because he wanted to get them in this country legally instead of bringing my child as a DACA recipient.. Please do not insult our intelligence since there are many more like me who has stayed away from his/her wife/husband and children just so (s)he can bring them to this country legally.
I have always maintained that it is prudent to wait for few days or weeks to see the entirety of decisions concerning President Trump. But I would agree with another poster upthread that President Trump needs to see the video of him reciting the “snake” poem. Pelosi, Schumer, Ryan,etc. all are those snakes and President Trump should know better than to give them “warmth”.
I am not saying President Trump should not talk with Pelosi/Schumer and his ilk. He should do so but on his terms and conditions and not the other way around.
If President Trump agrees on the DACA (as a law and not as rhetoric or twit feed) thing then that would be day I would start looking at him as just another politician (and treat him like one) but until then he is still one of us.
Melania could wear military issue camo and be as elegant as any woman could ever dream of being.
To those that say hold the line, I’ve been on this line since mid 2015 when it was mighty thin…
As far as criticizing POTUS goes, if I’m a passenger in a car and I see the driver start to drift off into oncoming traffic, if I have to I’m going to say something rather than merely hope they make the proper correction…
If they don’t bother to listen don’t be surprised if I crack the door and prepare to bail…
I expected more, I expected smarter moves, I holding out hope that there is something afoot that explains these statements, and by that I mean the ones from his own mouth and twitter feed.
And yes….still better than sHillary….but I want more than that
Still holding the line….but now scanning 360 degrees for threats that I shouldn’t have to… 8^(
