The nation is all a atwitter over this apparent Trump-Schumer-Pelosi triumvirate.
I was personally disappointed that Trump even met with the two dirt dealers. Nothing productive could come of it. And herein lies the problem: We don’t know what was said or agreed upon, yet everyone has an opinion – but based on what?
I suppose, we could base opinion on conjecture or “ifs,” as it were. If Trump did this, then we’re happy – if Trump did that, then we’re mad, etc.
After their dinner meeting with the president, both Schumer and Pelosi claimed that Trump had agreed to make a deal regarding the Dreamers, while excluding the border wall. Everyone took this as gospel, despite coming from the two biggest liars on Capitol Hill. My guess is that Chuckie figured he could paint Trump into a corner.
“We had a very productive meeting at the White House with the president,” Schumer and Pelosi said in a joint statement. “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.”
