re: #17 KGxvi

Goes back to something I said last night or maybe a couple nights ago: immigration just isn’t high on the list of priorities for most people (even for second and third generation immigrants). It becomes important when the economy gets bad - but when the economy goes bad opinions on everything sour. So most politicians don’t really know how to talk about it in a way that generates excitement/support.

In general I think you are right. What is happening in my opinion is Trump is making immigration an issue and bringing more and more awareness to it and his cruel fumbling of it. I think he is going to end up having America sympathize with the immigrants and they will demand it be fixed and at the same time hold Trump responsible for it being broken.

It is terrible politics. Trump opened his big mouth, made a big deal of his wall and put himself in this mess. And he doesn’t have the political chops to do anything to fix it and he doesn’t have the balls to take the hit and back out.

It is so much like his businesses and so far everything he has done as President. A lot of bluster, a mess, a trial, a then on to some other thing acting the whole time like everything you touch turns to gold.

It is just gold paint. A Hollywood prop.
