Trump Buckled at the Knees on Immigration Reform in Worst Day of His Presidency

Trump seemed more than willing to bend on the very issues that got him elected in the first place in a meeting with lawmakers on Tuesday regarding immigration reform.

As he sat with members of Congress in the White House yesterday many were taken aback by his willingness to cut a deal on DACA during a televised meeting in Washington where he claimed a deal could be reached between Democrats and Republicans concerning “Dreamers.” This compromise with Democrats on a new DACA bill in order to get funding for his wall was viewed by his supporters as drastically uncharacteristic of Trump’s rhetoric on the campaign trail which left many Trump loyalists, including Ann Coulter, feeling utterly defeated and infuriated by his sudden willingness to pander to Democrats on this issue.

CNBC reported, “Before that meeting, President Trump had been taking a hard line on the issue of the children of illegal immigrants or ‘Dreamers.’ The president had been insisting that unless the Democrats agreed to more funding for border security and the building of his famous ‘wall,’ there would be no deal on the Dreamers and the DACA policy that protects them from deportation.

But then in front of all those Democrats and the TV cameras, President Trump made the following statement:

I will say, when this group comes back — hopefully with an agreement — this group and others from the Senate, from the House, comes back with an agreement, I’m signing it.

GLENN: Remember the days when talks of amnesty torpedoed Marco Rubio? What about when “low-energy Jeb” was destroyed by, then, candidate Trump for referring to illegal immigration as an “act of love”? Those days were so five minutes ago. Yesterday, in a rare glimpse into a meeting between the President and lawmakers, Trump said DACA should be a quote “bill of love.” Eat your heart out Jeb Bush.

Getting a fly on the wall view into one of these meetings isn’t normal - so you gotta wonder - why did the cameras keep rolling yesterday? Was it a mistake or was there something else going on here? The news of the day was dominated by Michael Wolff’s book and questions over Trump’s mental stability. Does anyone see a mentally unstable President in that meeting? To the contrary, he looks - uncharacteristically - reserved, attentive and engaging.

Some have criticized the President’s willingness and ability to reach across the aisle and compromise. That definitely wasn’t the case yesterday. Actually, it was hard to determine whether Trump favored the Democrats at the table or the Republicans. When Feinstein posed the question about the President’s willingness to do a “clean DACA bill now”, Trump went into full-on agreeable mode. It took House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy to butt in and remind Trump that Feinstein didn’t mention the wall or border security.

Trump eventually made his intentions a little more clear, but it all kinda seemed like an afterthought for him. He even seemed to want to hurry it all along by saying that - whether he liked or agreed with it - he’d sign anything they put in front of him. There’s not much leadership there, but this meeting had an ulterior purpose.

For those that are pissed off on Twitter that Trump is considering DACA, you might as well get used to it. Trump knows it as does everyone in both the House and the Senate. Without DACA, Trump and the Republicans have ZERO leverage to do anything with border security and immigration reform. Because of that, DACA ain't going nowhere. In fact, I bet all this was already agreed upon before the cameras even turned on.

So why did they keep rolling? The real work on immigration had already happened and was going to be finalized during the closed-door session, but Trump, the Democrats AND the Republicans wanted their constituents to know something. Feinstein wanted to project the appearance that DACA was their primary motivation. McCarthy wanted Republicans to know that border security and immigration reform was the higher priority than any kind of amnesty. And Trump? He wanted to show everyone that he was mentally stable, and - as I’m sure Kushner and Ivanka coached him - willing to reach across the aisle and cooperate.

They should rename Pennsylvania Avenue to Broadway because the theater is just as good.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars."

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."
