We’ll see how all this works out but what folks like Coulter need to understand is that many of the people who elected Trump knew that he was a Democrat, and then an independent, and then a Republican, and then well I don’t remember. But it went something like that. And they knew he might pull something like this. But they wanted Trump to go in and shake things up. Well, if nothing else, one can say that Trump has done this.
As we’ve said many times Trump is not a “conservative.” In most respects he’s a New York City moderate with some socially conservative tendencies and a contempt for political correctness generally. Trump is not a small government guy. And everyone knew the “wall” would be put on the back burner. Many Americans are OK with this, as it appears that at least we aren’t subsidizing illegal migrants and inducing them across the border anymore. (This could change in a flash however and “rule of law” could be out the window again.)
So I think many Americans are in a wait and see mode.
It should be remembered that few months ago Schumer was a “clown” according to Trump. Now, they’re buddies? Who knows? We don’t. Coulter doesn’t.
We do know that Schumer and Pelosi should never be trusted. They are bad news. But they can be used. And that might be what Trump is doing here. Or it could be the opposite.
One thing is for sure. Taxpayers had better watch their wallets closely.
And never trust a politician. Any politician.
Trump’s base woke up to a fairly surprising flip-flop this morning from the White House on DACA and the infamous, beautiful border wall which was discussed repeatedly on the campaign trail throughout 2016. It all started when Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after their White House dinner with the President last night:“We had a very productive meeting at the White House with the President. The discussion focused on DACA. We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides.”
That statement was followed up by a tweet storm (we covered it here) from the President this morning which seemingly revealed his complete support for DACA and referred to ‘The Wall’ as a “renovation of old and existing fences and walls” rather than the “physically imposing” yet “aesthetically pleasing” structure that he repeatedly promised his supporters.
The apparent flip flop by the President resulted in an immediate backlash from some of his most vocal supporters with Ann Coulter wondering aloud over twitter, “at this point, who DOESN’T want Trump impeached?”
