Why President Trumpís Timing of Ending DACA Is Perfect Political Gamesmanship
thegatewaypundit ^ | Carter

Posted on 09/04/2017 3:30:07 PM PDT by davikkm

Sunday evening, Politico reported that POTUS Trump is to end DACA following a six month delay.

This move could not be more genius.

The political gamesmanship the President put on display relative to DACA is an example of a “masterstroke”. First off, it must be noted that DACA will be ending after a six month delay. Why the six month delay? Good question, this might be why: Republicans running for primaries during 2018 will HAVE to discuss DACA as it will be a major talking point in both the media and in debates.

Republicans trying to win their primaries KNOW that the #MAGA base is strong and dedicated to “making America great again,” so these conservatives will have to prove their loyalty to the vision President Trump presented in 2016.

Our President is always steps ahead of everyone else and has exposed many of the traitors/RINOS, usually one in the same, in the GOPe. Sadly, many align themselves more with Obama’s abysmal policies.

IRRC, the program has a sunset provision.

It’s blatantly unconstitutional and should be ended yesterday.

No sunset as currently devised by Obama.

Yes, it is illegal and unconstitutional and should have been stopped by our opposition party suing the day after Obama did it.

We don’t have an opposition party.

They are both more concerned about fraudulently documented foreigners than they are about the citizens.

He will use it as a bargaining chip for his tax cuts and the wall funding. Just attach DACA and the dems will vote for it. He wins either way. He is a businessman first and realizes 400K Dreamers are a pittance to a major tax cut and wall construction.

What Trump will do is to delay the closing of DACA and tell Congress that if they want to continue the program, they need to change the law.

He also needs to tie any change in the law to funding for the wall, repeal of Obamacare and tax reform. Otherwise he should veto it.

If they don’t change the law to legalize these people, then he will deport them.

If that's true and he does nothing, Congress will override the provision with a veto proof vote before it's deadline.

They can't be trusted. Everyone must know that by now.

A fairly new term to describe RINO’s is being used now; Socialist Republicans.

How’s that for an oxymoron?

People feel bad for them, but Obama let in hundreds of thousands the last year or two of his administration when Glenn Beck went to the border with teddy bears. He did that on purpose. I support ending DACA.

We are blessed to have a truly great man as president today! Trump is like another George Washington. Oh how I hate the Marxocrats and the RINO skunks that do their damndest to thwart Trump’s MAGA agenda. We simply must get rid of Trump’s enemies in 2018, from both the left and the right. This is war!
