You would think that media supporters of President Trump, the likes of Hannity, Ingraham, Dobbs, Bannon, and others, would know by now not to be played like a bunch of rookies by the Anti-Trump crowd when it comes to Trump’s core values and campaign pledges.
Gee, have they ever heard of FAKE NEWS! They should also know that Trump, unlike Obama, has a deep-seated reverence for the US Constitution and knows that he needs Congress to get his core values enacted! But no, one false narrative following a dinner meeting with Tweedle Dee (Schumer) and Tweedle Dumb (Pelosi) and the rats abandon the Trump Ship!
Get a clue guys. Anti-Trump forces joined up to drive a wedge between the President and his supporters. The so-called conservative pundits stabbed Trump in the back and believed Pelosi, Schumer, the MSM, and leftist pundits rather than POTUS. Good grief, haven’t we learned anything over the past 50 years? Apparently not.
Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs (for one night), Ann Coulter, Steve Bannon and other less Trump supporting conservative pundits piled on Trump following his dinner meeting with Schumer and Pelosi. First, they bought into the AP story (hook, line and STINKER) that quoted Schumer and Pelosi stating that, “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,” Obviously this statement was intentionally misleading about the meeting and intended to state that Trump abandoned his core value commitments to build the wall and not to back amnesty for illegal immigrants in addition to his commitment to end chain immigration and fixing the Visa programs. Sean, Laura, Ann and Lou took the bait rather than giving the President the benefit of the doubt and actually believe that he is committed to principles that he has espoused for the past 30 years.
The old saying, “with friends like these, who needs enemies” apply to these fair weather “friends” of the President. They may as well have gone on the air with “Joe and Mika” and help to bash the President. Now, the MSM and anti-Trump news outlets and blogs are doubling down on their condemnation of the President’s so-called back-stabbing of his MAGA supporters. They are convincing some of his mushy supporters that Trump reneged on his campaign promises on immigration issues such as the wall, amnesty, chain immigration and DACA.
In spite of the fact that Trump has stated and/or Tweeted emphatically that:
- On the dinner meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, “No deal was made last night on DACA,”
- On Chain Migration, “CHAIN MIGRATION cannot be allowed to be part of any legislation on Immigration!”
- On DACA legislation, “We’re not looking at citizenship. We’re not looking at amnesty.” “We’re looking at allowing people to stay here,”
- On building the Wall, “We have to have the wall. if we don’t have the wall we’re doing nothing,” Read, I will veto immigration reform that does not include the wall even if there are multiple pieces of legislation.
There are more along the same lines but in the last two days Trump has reiterated his core values when it comes to protecting the border and immigration reform. Our post on August 4th, titled, “Immigration Reform-Trump’s Approach Is Correct But Global Elites will Kill It!”, lays out Trump’s core immigration policy goals. (Link http://wp.me/pY51c-15r).
Everyone has to remember that a REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED Congress has to pass the Trump immigration values into law, Trump cannot merely wave a magic wand. The Trump critics should be blasting Ryan and McConnell AND THE REST OF THE GOP IN CONGRESS, for not passing the Trump immigration agenda. Trump is trying to peel off enough Dems to overcome the GOP Trump-haters like McCain, On-again off-again Graham, flaky Flake from Arizona, and many others in the house and senate. If he can’t, he will have to compromise to some degree, like St. Ronald Reagan did in 1986.
How far will he compromise? Read his statements. He says what he means. Trump is not a nuanced communicator. He is a Queens-New Yorker!
