Here’s the deal struck between “Republican” President Donald Trump and Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi over dinner late Wednesday evening.
Following their meeting with the president, Schumer and Pelosi released a statement revealing that Trump agreed to give up two cornerstones of his presidential campaign, namely the border wall and amnesty for unconstitutional DACA recipients.
In return for amnesty and no wall, Trump will receive “border security.”

Other than “Lock Her Up,” another broken promise, “Build the Wall” was the most frequent chant during Trump campaign rallies.
During his 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump campaigned at nearly every rally on deporting people in the country illegally and building a border wall.
Conservatives have been down this road before on “border security” deals with the Democrats that never seem to transpire. Ronald Reagan admitted that his biggest mistake of his presidency was believing that if he provided amnesty in exchange for border security — a deal he made with Democrats — that they would follow through. They did not.
Then, in 2006, Republican President George W. Bush signed the “Secure Fence Act of 2006,” and we’re still waiting for it.
