To the Left, with Trump

Many Republican voters, including self-identified strong conservatives, are ready and willing to shift to the left if they’re told that that’s the direction Trump is moving.

That’s good news. Trump already seems to be moving to the left on DACA, praising the recipients and saying nobody can possibly want to deport them. I hope the Dem leadership manages to build on this and motivates him to stay in this good, productive place. The cost of this great development will be the harmless, useless wall he desperately needs. He should totally get the wall. What’s an expensive yet harmless symbol compared to the well-being of 800,000 scared young people?

    And many aren’t. Conservative Republican legislators were all over the cable news today, expressing worry that Trump has given the Democrats DACA without getting any commitment to fund/build the wall.

    • Those conservative legislators have the overall support that’s lower than the support people give to skin cancer. Trump wiped the floor with the establishment candidates of the GOP. So they should keep expressing concern. That’s all they are good for.
