Fake Donald Trump on Our Fake National Emergency

Anon says:

At one point, Dems were prepared to offer $25 billion for border security in exchange for a permanent solution for DACA. I’d call that caving, but whatever.

Republicans themselves torpedoed the deal, packing a meeting on immigration policy with hardliners to make sure Trump didn’t budge on their agenda (this was the meeting at which Trump referred to “shithole countries”).

Fast-forward a few months, and Trump “proudly” shuts the government down for thirty-five days after demanding $5.7 billion (a far cry from the $25 billion he could have had earlier). A month later, he caved, and will get $1.37 billion, which was the same deal he was offered before the shutdown, meaning that the shutdown which cost billions and made a measurable dent in economic growth was all for exactly nothing.

Yeah, “winning.” But while it’s hardly winning, it *is* a stellar example of his (lack of) deal-making skills, the same ones that caused him to go bankrupt trying to sell Americans gambling, steak, booze, and football (seriously, how does someone even do that???).

P.S. A majority of Americans oppose the wall, and 70% say there is no national emergency over his failure to achieve anything during the two years he had a fully Republican Congress.
