Do Not Give in to Trump Blackmail

Real Americans do not give in to blackmail. And this is blackmail. Trump has suspended the law--and now is offering to let the law become the law again, if Congress gives him 5 Billion for a federal land grab in Texas aka the Wall. The nation does not usually give in to blackmail demands, because doing so encourages more blackmail. Plus, Trump has a long history of not keeping his part of bargains. It is quite likely that he will immediately reverse the reversal and keep immigrant kids incarcerated and start deporting young immigrants as soon as he has his 5 billion. It is what his base will want him to do. And he does everything he can to please his base--as long as there is money in it for him.

4. K&r But is it true enough to induce readers to WRITE THEIR REPRESENTATIVES IN DC?

Teflon Don is allowing the GOP to dig their own graves, with this shutdown, which will have long-term consequences.

3. Trump has a pattern of dealing in bad faith

Democrats would be fools to take Orange Julius at his word. Throughout his business career, DT has repeatedly shafted people he did business with. If Democrats were stupid and credulous to trust him, hed screw them over at the first available opportunity.
