BREAKING: Government delays mass kidnappings seeking deal with Democrats

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday he would postpone mass deportation raids for two weeks as he seeks compromise with Democratic leaders on immigration issues.

The president was under pressure from Democrats to call off the roundup, which was expected to target families in up to 10 U.S. cities on Sunday.

1. I trust Democrats understand that the Orange Oaf intends to feign a compromise,

only to turn around and do what he wanted to anyway.

2. Kidnapping is kidnapping

And it won't change that fact even if they kidnap less people. It is still kidnapping.

4. Exactly.

He might scale the abuses back a little for a while - only to ramp them up after a month or two.

Classic rope-a-dope - the kind you often see from corporate fraudsters and polluters. Or third world despots after some negative news emerges over the human rights situation in their countries.

And it stands to reason: Cheeto's friends include both.

6. Impunity for me - but not for thee

That's their credo.

Well, besides 'show me the money'.

8. May I correct your headline?

TRUMP delays mass kidnappings seeking deal with Democrats.

This is all Trump, not the government, which includes many people and things beyond Trump, including the Democrats he claims he's seeking a deal with.

10. Trump is in.charge of the executive branch of the government.

But he's not the government nor is he in charge of the government.

12. The Democrats he says he wants a deal with also represent the government

So perhaps the headline should be "Government delays mass kidnappings seeking deal with the government."

Otherwise you're saying Members of Congress may strike a deal with the government, which makes no sense. Both sides represent the government, not just one of them.

15. Thanks.

I'm in LA. I've had students who have expressed fear because they are undocumented. Nobody should be afraid simply for existing, but that's basically what's going on. I've been on the verge of a breakdown ever since the first announcement.



But thank you...
