All Trump has to do is budge an inch on DACA, and this would all be over.
Problem is: nobody can trust him when he budges an inch.. he's perfectly willing to welch on anything he's agreed to.

Re: Congressional Oversight 2019: Re Trump Admin Corruption

Cummings made the accusation in an interview with "60 Minutes" aired on Sunday. He said that he believes Trump is making "a lot of money" off the presidency.

Re: 2018-2019 Government Shutdown

Just watched a segment on the local teevee news, featuring DJT saying "The democrats refuse to fund border security"

This is incorrect.

"Democrats" refuse to fund a stupid wall.

Dems need to shout that difference from the rooftops.. in very simple terms.

Re: Congressional Committees: Re 2016 Elections & Russia

IIRC calling the translator on the carpet is a slippery slope (how's THAT for a mixed metaphor!)

In general, it would cause issues with candor in the conversation between parties.

In trump's case, it just means he'll use a translator provided by Putin.

yabut, DJT just needs the numbers. He doesn't care what the numbers are attached to.

Re: 2018-2019 Government Shutdown

Trump understands that conservative media personalities like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh hold the keys to his base -- and so it's unlikely he's going to stray from them on the gov't shutdown / border issue. Democrats are effectively in effect negotiating with the right-wing media. [/quote] I thi...

The president denied knowing about his former campaign manager Paul Manafort’s sharing of 2016 polling data with a Russian-linked operative. “No, I didn’t know anything about it, nothing about it.”

Re: 2018-2019 Government Shutdown

Wouldn't such a regulation be government over-reach?

I mean, this restricts legal action against a certain class of people.. could landlords etc then choose to not deal with that class of people?

IANAYL..
