CONSERVATIVES OUTRAGED: Trump says, “OK, we won’t do the wall…”

By

Oh no.

There are some very real benefits to having a businessman in the White House. But there are also some very serious potential downsides.

A politician makes promises. And Trump, needing, of course, to play the politician, made a lot of very strong promises during the campaign.

Given that he’s not actually a politician, who are generally prone to lying, we expected Trump would break the trend and actually fulfill his promises.

But, the thing is, businessmen in general have no problem negotiating away promises for the sake of the bottom line.

And, if Senator Chuck Schumer is to be believed (and that’s a BIG “if”), that’s precisely what Trump’s doing now with one of his biggest and most hoped-for campaign promises.

Breitbart reported:

This week on the “Pod Save America” podcast, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) detailed the debt ceiling and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy negotiations he had with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and President Donald Trump earlier in the month.

Schumer said, “On DREAMers, he said, you know, that he understood that they didn’t come in through any fault of their own, that they’re good Americans, good kids. And then he said he wants the wall in return. And we said ‘No. No wall, Mr. President.’ And he tried that for about 15 minutes, but he’s not going to push me around verbally or any other way.”

He added, “And he finally said, ‘OK, we won’t do the wall. We’ll do some other kind of border security.'”
