Having been humiliated by Trump, the smarter Dems in congress, especially in the Senate are going to be hella wary of doing that again.

It’s not just that Trump humiliated them, it’s also that the thought DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] was a certain winner politically, because all of their slanted Big Media polls have been telling them that for years.

But when it came time to actually act, the public melted their phones with anger. …

Donald Trump as superhero

DACA is not a bargaining chip, it’s a wedge. …

And Dr. President Trump is going to put it on the fault line between sensible Congressional Dems and their bitter, idiotic, lunatic voters and hit it as many times as he can with a sledgehammer. Trump is going to use DACA to split Dems from their hardest-of-hardcore base: the ethnic agitators, the SJWs, the cat ladies, and the whole rest of that ranting crew.

Trump is going to do this by making the terms of any potential DACA deal so hard for Dems to swallow that they’re either be a) forced to abandon the Dreamers, or give Trump so much of what he wants that the Dem base will have an epic meltdown.

The Dems in Congress find themselves in yet another no win situation. They have to give Trump the moon or throw the Dreamers overboard. There is no other viable option for Democrats. None. …

After the DACA thing is settled one way or another, either of which will be a big win for Trump, Trump is going to pivot to infrastructure and start hammering it hard. Remember, infrastructure is a HUGE bipartisan issue. …

Infrastructure is another win-win for Trump. The best the Democrats can do is tag along and get a little rehabilitation and praise from Trump. If they resist, the hammer comes down, hard. Tweet! More proof that they love illegals and hate America, really hate America. Sad.

Perhaps. The squish Republicans in the Senate may still rescue the Democrats instead of standing with Trump.
