Trump To Ask For Border Wall Money — But Only A Little

This is source I found from another site, main source you can find in last paragraph

Attempting to divine President Donald Trump's decision-making process is like trying to untangle yarn with one sticky finger.

Many try, all fail, and the reason, I believe, is it's near impossible for any human to fully fathom Trump's absolute self-absorption. His mind seems to function solely and reflexively for the protection and elevation of Donald J. Trump.

With little patience for forethought or afterthought, he's a man consumed by the present and convinced that every decision is the right one and that every outcome makes him look perfect.

This leaves his detractors continuously baffled, probing for trains of thought where there aren't even tracks. And now, given Trump's enigmatic, logic-defying mental gymnastics on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, even his most loyal supporters are flummoxed. Or angry, nicknaming their hero "Amnesty Don."

So it wasn't surprising when, on Sept. 5, Trump had Attorney General Jeff Sessions, announce that the DACA program was being rescinded. Sessions said: "The effect of this unilateral executive amnesty, among other things, contributed to a surge of unaccompanied minors on the southern border that yielded terrible humanitarian consequences. It also denied jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans by allowing those same jobs to go to illegal aliens."

America the beautiful? That doesn't work right now.

America the cruel, maybe. America the ugly.

Those are better fits for the moment. Those are the slogans you get when your national agenda is driven by willful meanness, when it's oblivious to common sense.

America the cruel. That's what we were...

America the beautiful? That doesn't work right now.

America the cruel, maybe. America the ugly.

Those are better fits for the moment. Those are the slogans you get when your national agenda is driven by willful meanness, when it's oblivious to common sense.

America the cruel. That's what we were...

Both of those statements are, of course, false, but that was the argument the Trump administration put forth: The job-taking DACA recipients had to go!

Later that same day, however, Trump tweeted that if Congress can't "legalize DACA" then "I will revisit this issue!" Now this humanitarian-crisis-causing executive amnesty must be legalized so the hundreds-of-thousands-of-American-jobs-stealing DACA recipients can stay?

Trump was asked if he was backpedaling on the decision and he said he wasn't.

Then, on Wednesday night, Democratic lawmakers Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer met with Trump and followed the meeting with a statement saying they had reached a deal that would protect people in the DACA program while providing a border security package that would not include money for a border wall.

Republicans and a slew of passionate Trump supporters were up in arms. The president appeared to be caving on two of his core campaign promises, ending DACA and building a big, beautiful wall.

>An apology to Donald Trump, from the 'fake news' media
> Rex Huppke

After watching Donald Trump's campaign rally in Phoenix, it became clear that we in the media owe the president a sincere apology.

Trump used Tuesday night's rally to denounce the "fake news" media for being mean, dishonest, bad, America-hating and an all-around pain in his keister.

On Thursday morning Trump tweeted: "No deal made last night on DACA."

One hour later, he sent three tweets, one explaining that part of the wall he promised everyone — the one fans chanted about at his campaign rallies — was actually underway as a "new renovation of old and existing fences and walls." The other two tweets praised the young people protected by DACA — remember them, the "illegal alien" job stealers? — asking whether "anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs."

Confused? Of course you are. No rational person could possibly think any of this makes sense.

So Trump opponents are asking "What is this guy thinking?" and Trump supporters are asking "What is this guy thinking?" and everyone is trying to tease out what might come next.

I'd argue that presupposing that Trump is thinking at all, or that he has a plan, is a huge mistake.

Did he actually change his mind and feel sympathetic for the young people protected by DACA? Did he see the negative reaction to the decision to end the program and decide he doesn't want the negative press?

We know Trump has been furious at Sessions for recusing himself from the ongoing Russia investigation, a decision that led to the appointment of a special prosecutor. So did Trump do all this just to undercut someone who ticked him off?

Or maybe Pelosi and Schumer and Trump were having a friendly chat over Chinese food at the White House and the president just thought, "Hey, I feel good and happy right now, I think I'll side with these guys."

The possibilities are endless, and it's not possible for any of us to make even an educated guess because we're dealing with a person who exists alone in his own reality. Everything centers around him. Everything begins and ends with him. Every decision he makes is the best decision, and if he later decides something else, then that becomes the best decision.

In a story in the Washington Post, Ashley Parker wrote: "Often, Trump's underlings, friends, foes and allies never know quite where he stands — in part because of the president's penchant for telling his immediate audience exactly what they want to hear in any given moment. People who meet with the president frequently leave buoyed, an optimism punctured by a nagging question mere hours later: What just happened?"

We need to stop asking that question and stop looking for answers. There are none.

There is only Trump, and the answer he hears is always: "Trump did everything right." Which is great, for him.

But perilously bad for our country.
