Nancy Pelosi called Donald Trump Friday night asking to call off ICE raids

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called President Donald Trump Friday night and asked him to call off the Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation raids scheduled for Sunday, a source familiar with the call told CNN.

Trump pulled back on the raids Saturday a matter of hours after he spoke in support of the coordinated arrests and deportations that were slated to hit 10 major cities. Trump announced via Twitter that he would delay for two weeks US raids to give Congress a chance to "get together and work out a solution" on the enforcement of his signature immigration policy.

Trump and Pelosi spoke at 7:20 p.m. ET Friday night for about 12 minutes, according to the source. White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere confirmed a phone call took place Friday night between Trump and Pelosi.

A senior Democratic aide said Trump is "trying to create leverage in a situation where he has none," adding that "it won't work."

"Democrats aren't going to compromise their values," the aide said. "He's walked away from several deals on immigration. We have no illusions here."

1. Once again, Trump folds like a cheap lawn chair

because he doesn't have the guts to follow through with something that is likely to be politically unpopular (and that he didn't figure out that fact because he listens only to his base) during an election season. Then he spins his backing off as something he meant to do in the first place.

3. "Democrats aren't going to compromise their values," the aide said.

Okay, but they gave Trump a narrative. "See the Democrats are caving to me! I will be magnanimous and give them a chance to deal."

Trump won't make a deal, this is his signature fascist pig issue.
