In a Twitter storm yesterday, President Donald Trump showed an angrier side of himself than we are used to. It seems he has finally had enough of dealing with Democrats who refuse to do what they promised for DACA recipients and even Republicans who refuse to initiate the “nuclear option” and get immigration fixed!
“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”
Could this be the beginning of the end for Congressional obfuscation? Or is Trump looking to distance himself from a hugely unpopular Congress in the hopes of winning a 2020 landslide without their help?
Trump wants the Senate to go to a simple majority vote, and he is not being shy in letting the American people know that this would finally end the deadlock on fixing immigration issues… He has squarely out the ball into the Senate’s court and now just has to sit back and wait.
The danger for the MAGA agenda is that the GOP loses vital Senate seats in the Midterm elections, at which point, he may not be able to command even a “simple majority.”
This needs to happen fast, and it needs to be decisive.
