However, far left-winger and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D, Calif.) said the deal was a “non-starter” before the president was even done talking.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump went on the air to offer a deal to end both the budget impasse and the government shutdown. But his offer really put the Democrats in a bind.

During his Saturday afternoon speech, President Donald Trump offered the Democrats a series of concessions on DACA and other tings in exchange for the spending on border security that he wants.

His address showed that he is willing to deal, willing to negotiate, and willing to talk. He came off as reasonable and eager to work with the Democrats to break this impasse.

The highlights of Trump’s plan includes:

  • $5.7 billion for wall
  • Millions in humanitarian aid & drug detection tech
  • 2,750 new border agents
  • 75 new immigration judges
  • 3 yr relief for DACA recipients
  • 3 yr extension for TPS

“This is a commonsense compromise both parties should embrace,” Trump said.

Indeed, during the speech, Trump noted that all of the points in his proposal have been accepted by the Democrats at one point or another in the past. Each point, he said, has gotten a Democrat “yes” vote before.

However, far left-winger and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D, Calif.) said the deal was a “non-starter” before the president was even done talking.

But this speech does show President Trump as the negotiator and the one trying to compromise. A blanket “non-starter” from the Democrats shows them as the obstinate mules refusing to even talk.

If they all reject Trump’s proposal, this will also set up the Democrats running for president in 2020 to look like they refuse to govern but only want their own selfish policies.

If the Republicans play this correctly, they will be able to paint the Democrats as the unreasonable ones. And with their refusal to even help the DACA kids, that should make their job easier.

But, sad to say, the Republican Party usually fails to play these situations well.

The GOP is not called “the stupid party” for nothing.

Liberal privilege on full display.

Imagine the kind of field day the press would have if a late-night talk show host treated Eric, Ivanka, or Don Jr. with kid gloves. They would go absolutely berserk. Then again, when you’re a liberal, there is literally nothing you can’t get away with. Lest we forget when it comes to the son of the current president, Hunter Biden is not only a drug addict but he fathered a child with a stipper and dated his deceased brother’s wife for a year. The guy is the whole package! From New York Post: Hunter Biden continued his lovefest with an adoring, understanding, thoroughly enchanted media last night with a lengthy spot on Jimmy Kimmel. Never have two people found crack addiction so funny, or international influence-peddling so banal, or obvious lies so easy to explain away. CONTINUED: “The laptop,” Kimmel said. Now this is the laptop that contains thousands of emails and texts from Hunter Biden to his father, wife, sister-in-law-turned-mistress, his sister-in-law’s married sister, who also becomes his mistress (try to keep up), drug dealers and prostitutes and colleagues at Burisma, the Ukrainian company that paid him $50,000 a month for God knows what.

Dem-Controlled House Schedules Vote on Reparations for Black Americans — Details

An issue none of us had ANYTHING to do with!

What kind of person with even a shred of pride would accept money for something that in no way affected their life? Conversely, what kind of person would support such nonsense? It is absolutely insane how far the left has taken things. From Fox News: The House took a step forward on a slavery reparations bill Friday by scheduling it for debate and a vote in the Judiciary Committee. The bill would set up a commission to study reparations. If voted out of committee, the matter would come up on the House floor for the first time since 1989. The late Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., introduced slavery reparations legislation in the House each session for nearly 30 years to no avail. CONTINUED: Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said the measure, which is widely opposed by Republicans, is “not intended to divide” but to “bring us closer to racial understanding and advancement.” “Today we still live with racial disparities in access to education, health care, housing, insurance, employment and other social goods that are directly attributable to the damaging legacy of slavery and government-sponsored racial discrimination,” Nadler said in a statement.
