The media hasn’t mentioned it much because it proves that Donald Trump is decisively outmaneuvering the opposition Republicans. The tactic was simple. Mr. Trump reached out to Democrats with a basic “can we get something done for the American people?” request. This put enormous pressure on Paul Ryan and his cadre of obstructionist Republicans to start moving on at least some of the Trump agenda.
This is Ryan buckling under that pressure. This is Ryan conceding the power of Trump and the millions of Trump supporters have forced his hand. There was certainly some DACA negotiation behind the scenes – as well as Trump’s demand for real tax relief for Middle Class Americans and American business. After about six months settling in and figuring out the angles of the D.C. snake pit, Trump is unleashing an Art of the Deal offense upon the opposition and they appear unable to stop him – at least for now.
Every single POTUS Trump supporter who raised a voice in support of their president helped to push Speaker Ryan to bend the knee. Keep it up. You have real power and you’re scaring the hell out of Washington D.C.
