Comments: #DACA

Perhaps a better moniker would be, "The Dreamer Maneuver."

"We discussed that [DACA] also today, and Chuck and Nancy would like to see something happen, and so do I," Trump said. "And I said if we can get something to happen, we're going to sign it and we're going to make a lot of happy people."

That's "Chuck and Nancy" as in "Schumer and Pelosi."

"Hey congressional Republicans, if you don't want to play ball with my White House then I'll just have to see what I can work out on the other side of the aisle."

I see the 3-month continuing resolution as a shot across the right side of the aisle, and if they don't get their act together on tax cuts and/or Obamacare repeal and replace, there will be a longer CR with the Democrats next time.

Call him unprincipled if you like, but it looks to me like he's not going to let anyone make him a lame duck president for his entire first term, followed by an ignominious defeat - even fellow members of the Republican Party.

The best-case scenario is it gets congressional Republicans asses in gear to work together for once.

Rather than "pandering to the basest part of his base" he may be playing three-dimensional chess.
