You mean when Trump decided to screw over almost a million people that the government guaranteed would have a legal place in the US?Yablo wrote:You say this like he hasn't been pushing for it all along. It was just under a year ago that he offered Democrats amnesty for almost triple the number of actual DACA recipients in exchange for support for the wall.
So why do you keep blaming Democrats? You're literally saying it's Trump who's pushing it, and you're literally saying you think this is wrong, and you keep blaming Democrats for this. What sort of fantasy logic world do you live in?I know Democrats have proposed a bill to fund Homeland Security at current levels, and it’s Trump who is pushing against it. I also believe that bill, being a temporary measure, is a good one and should be passed, and the wall fight should be saved for later.
They're offering what the Republican party offered! How is this something that's unreasonable for the other side to accept if the other side is literally the side that suggested it? And no, saying "I won't be a lying shithead and screw over almost a million people for political gain, and you will be cool with a completely wasteful project that's not going to do anything but increase my political gain" is not a reasonable offer.But I also believe the Democrats are doing the same thing to Trump now that he did to them with his amnesty offer; make a reasonable offer the other side will never accept, not because it’s really what you want to achieve, but because it makes the other side look like tantrum-throwing children.
You still haven't addressed how overjoyed Trump is to have a shutdown in the first place, how he wanted it to go down exactly this way, how he thought it's a good idea to hold all federal employees hostage around holiday time, and boasted about it. And you haven't addressed how any of this is even relevant at all considering there is zero proof there's any sort of immigration crisis going on.
