    Trump is caving.

    Trump punts the border crisis to a broken Congress
    [​IMG]
    President Trump's border crisis is only the latest example of the administration enacting a policy with drastic implications and telling Congress to fix it. The problem is that the strategy hasn't worked in the past, with negotiations going down in partisan flames.

    Why it matters: If Congress fails yet again to find a legislative solution to a problem thrust upon it by the White House, this time it means that family separation at the border will continue until Trump caves — which is far from a fail-safe option.

    The two parties have divided up Congress, and the entire country, for themselves. There is little alternative but at least one other political party. This is within easy reach of the electorate, but seems to be entirely beyond its grasp.
    The R-Duopoly reigns, and will continue. It is protected by hundreds of billions of dollars of tax money for its defense.
    P.S. It doesn't matter what is "true" if people don't believe it.

    The amazing Pres. Trump is a master strategist.

    He handed the problem to Congress.

    Which took the onus off of him.

    Now he can just set back and laugh.

    And watch the do nothing Congress fight it out. ... :popcorn:

    Hmm, so are you admitting that Democrats are incapable of solving this issue too?

    Intriguing...

    Puts the blame where it belongs. Career politicians Haven't fixed this in decades. Time for them to do their dang jobs.

    This shit happened under the other Presidents. Didn't hear this shit then.

    Enforcing the law is not enacting a policy. And yes, the law will continue to be enforced until and unless the law is changed.

    Trump has vowed to put an end to this Democrat-sponsored invasion. I hope his actions carry over to Progressives as well. You are of no use to this country. Quite the opposite, in fact.

    Thanks for foolishly admitting the truth.
    This doesn't look good.

    Congress is refusing to work for the American people and instead are favoring foreign invaders.
    So what they want is for the president to do their jobs for them.
    It doesn't look good.

    I think it depends on who you are and how rational you are. If you can't think logically of course you'll buy into this media manufactured fraud.
