Trump Meeting With Reps and Dems.

Ok, listen to quite a bit of the meeting between Trump, the Reps and Dems and I have to say it was a brilliant move on his part to also have the media there.  It put all parties on the spot for DACA and the Wall in front of the media.  It was a brilliant tactical move that forced both sides to either step up or look like the party that is resisting.  Curious what others have to say about this.

It ALSO CUT THROUGH THE CRAP FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO SEE A PRESIDENT WHO WAS ACTING BOTH PRESIDENTIAL AND IN FULL COMMAND OF THE SITUATION (who was reasonable articulate and willing to listen to everyone else's opinions). 

If the GOP want to stop chain migration (for the DACA recipients as well as others), then it's up to them to make the case and debate the Democrats. 

Trump must feel he doesn't have adequate support from enough in his own party (cowardly congressional GOP) and so he's put them on the spot, along with the Democrats!   They are the ones facing the midterms deciding whether their constituents agree with the job they are doing.  Trump doesn't stand before the public until 2020, when they will decide if HE has done an adequate job to be reelected!

It also destroys the left's attempt to paint him as unhinged and unfit for office.

Trump being Trump means a whole lot of things.  I have to admit that I am not all that comfortable with some of Trump's being Trump, but then he goes on the world stage and proves that he is the "really smart" genius, that he so modestly claims to be!   Grin

I would be in favor of televising the ENTIRE meeting. Let the people see who's saying what.

That is about what he did and it was great to see the Dems being put on the spot when he said we will give and you will need to give in order to compromise.

Perhaps this is why BAm came out this morning screaming about trump destroying the country

He is bringing both sides into the same room at the same table and putting the eyes of the people on them

The nerve!
