Skip to comments.Steve King: If Reports Correct ‘Trump Base Is Blown Up, Destroyed, Irreparable’
Posted on 09/14/2017 1:59:46 AM PDT by EliRoom8
King tweeted the following after the Associated Press (AP) and other outlets reported that the president told Democrats he wanted a quick amnesty for the 800,000 plus illegal aliens he acted to removed protections from on September 5:
Steve King @RealDonaldTrump If AP is correct, Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible.
King, a long-time immigration hawk, told Breitbart News Washington political editor Matt Boyle that an amnesty move like the one onto which Trump reportedly signed Wednesday was Republican suicide. That assessment came just after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the administrations decision to keep a major election campaign promise and phase out President Barack Obamas Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order. It was a clear campaign promise, King said at the time, referring to an immediate end to the program upon Trumps taking office.

Its not an enemy that is insulting me I could handle that. Its not someone who hates me who is exalted over me I could hide from them. No. Its you, my equal, my close companion, my good friend! It was so pleasant when together we entered Gods house with the crowd. Psalm 55:12-14

Well, Steve King is definitively an idiot.
Steve King is correct.
I think the key word here is “if”.
Djt was always my glass half full guy.better than Hillary and actually electable. I knew I would be dissapoint3d in much of what he,was going to do. Unfortunately the republicans have stabbed him in the back on everything he has tried to do.
ie. It means getting “stabbed in the back,” especially hurts when it comes by a friend or ally.
Uh, say what you will about Trump, but the man’s certainly not stupid. He no doubt knows that he needs the support of his base if he wants to win reelection, and stuff like this would destroy his support among them.
I don’t know.
If Trump does approve the immigrants, but builds the wall, then I am aok with that.
That depends, on whether he gets the wall built.
Ryan is making noises like that will happen. If it does, then we are all good.
But it’s very, very important.
Problem is the media’s jumping to conclusions yet AGAIN.....and sounds like even some here are ready to knee jerk respond to something that isn’t there yet.
There’s been no deal struck....just Pelosi up to her tricks along with the media....BTW there’s no annonous about it....Ol’ airhead Nancy flapping her jaws is nothing new.
IMO Trumps ‘dealing’...and that takes time....people need to let him do so til the final product is delivered for vote.
I guess it would be too much to ask for you to read the previous posts.
since this has been posted three or four times tonight and has been debunked every time. Hey never “Trumpers” every time you read about how ridiculous Hillary Clinton is for not accepted reality there’s a lesson there.
In a way, I can’t help but be reminded of all the GOPe and Never Trumpers who have sided with the left ever since Trump was nominated...
It’s hard to see how Trump can face his supporters if the AP report is correct. This is gonna fly like a lead toolbox.

Stick to the “he can do no wrong/15-D chess” perspective if you want.
The facts suggest otherwise.
I see the FR hand wringing crew is out in force based on one news report....chill out. Never fails...like moths to the flame they are ready to jump off the cliff...again chill.
Messing with your mind, folks. The media and Democrat mendacity just reeks. When was the last time you got an honest headline from any announcement the Democrats released?
Analyze this: “...signaled a full-fledged cave on the issue of giving amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens..”
Signaled = didn’t say so, reporters had to interpret
full-fledged = because he didn’t get specific, media ramps up the sturm und drang.
cave = No statement from the President + mega megaphone from the media signals total collapse
giving = no strings attached, a freebie for
Amnesty = No consequence for bad behavior
800,000illegal aliens = Very un-PC slip up by the author.
According to The Hill/AP = Vicious anti-trump
and the source = Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Mexico)
I smell a Trumpian rope-a-dope in play. Why doesn’t every one wait for the President to speak and see what’s in the details?
Considering that Trump has filled the lower level of his WH with the GOPe/Never Trumpers (his senior advisers now are mostly liberal NYC Democrats and neocon generals), it is probably hard not to be reminded of them daily.
What facts....an ap report? That is being disputed by the White House. We will soon know who is correct.
