    Sure 'n' it's going to be fun to watch just how far Schumer and Pelosi can push him before he begins to realize he's being taken for a ride. After all he still appears to think Putin is his buddy. The man is so stuffed with himself he can't tell who his friends are.

    The details are not out so we will need to see what is in it.
    The word is border, sir. Are you capable of learning a simple thing?

    Maybe Dem leadership realizes that a POTUS as dumb as Trump can be played.

    Well the Dems and Trump seem to have different versions of what happened in the meeting.

    Not surprising when a good majority of Trump's supporters in the news starts off when asked what Trump meant. They all, 1005 seem to start their answers with: "What I think Trump meant when he said that is................"

    Both Reps and Dems are a little upset with the meeting on DACA.

    Title: Pelosi, Schumer face ire from the left over Dreamer talks
    Democratic leaders are facing fresh trouble with their left flank after cutting their latest deal with President Donald Trump to protect Dreamers.
    Hispanic lawmakers were blindsided by the Wednesday night announcement from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) that they’d support legislation to help the nearly 700,000 undocumented immigrants in exchange for an unspecified boost in border security.

    Yup, a majority who are are his supporters too. Thiry 30%. Wonder how long that will last Geng? He cannot afford to lose his base. Dems can afford to leave him hanging.

    Chuck Schumer seems to support President Trump on how he is handling the trade talks with China.

    Title: Chuck Schumer urges Trump to ‘hang tough on China’ after latest tariff threat while other top Democrats are quiet
    As President Donald Trump reignites a trade war with China, he has found an ally in at least one key Democrat – Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
    The New York senator, who has largely cheered the president’s efforts to crack down on what officials from both major parties call Chinese trade abuses, backed Trump again on Sunday. In a tweet, he urged the president to “hang tough on China.”
    “Strength is the only way to win with China,” said Schumer, who is otherwise at odds with Trump on a wide variety of policy issues.

    On some issues of course they are trying to. On the other major ones, NOPE. It's hard to deal with a constant and consistent liar gang.

    Meanwhile, in reality:

    https://www.politico.com/story/2019/...-china-1322691

    “Trump loses Dem backing as China crackdown grinds on
    Democrats who have long blasted China’s trade policies aren’t supporting the president’s tariffs.”

    Kinda tells a different story than Schumer “seems” to support Trump.
