Is Dicky Durbin attempting to use his own lie to trap President Trump? In other words, was this whole thing a set-up from the beginning? It sure seems like it.
The whole liberal media world has jumped on the supposed Trump comment, that third-world nations are “sh**holes.” In fact, CNN repeated it 195 times on Friday alone!
But even as Republicans, who were in the same meeting, have come to the President’s defense, Durbin has not apologized and is calling on Trump to “release the tapes” of the meeting, if there be any.
Now, though, Democrats have shifted strategies, one they probably had in mind all along – to use Trump’s words against him.
After the media blowup over the episode, President Trump did what we would all do in any situation like this: He spoke out and said that he was not a racist. Now Democrats, led by Lying Dicky Durbin himself, are calling Trump’s hand: If you are not a racist, prove it by passing DACA and protecting the 800,000 childhood arrivals from deportation.
This should surprise no one. It is exactly what the Democrats want and they don’t mind playing a sleazy hand to get it. It’s lowdown dirty politics. But that’s who they are.
President Trump should not fall into this trap. We should not compromise on DACA. Democrats do not have a majority in the government and need to win an election before they can dictate policy.
Trump should understand: You will never win with the left. If you cave in and cut a deal on DACA, you will still be a racist tomorrow!
