James Woods is easily the most outspoken conservative in Hollywood and is an avid supporter of President Donald Trump — a rarity among A-list actors from Tinsel Town who are typically America-hating leftists, communists, and all too often, progressive perverts and predators.
On Tuesday, President Trump told a group of bipartisan lawmakers that he would “take the heat” and sign whatever legislation the people in the room came up with, saying in “low energy” Jeb Bush-fashion that a “bill of love” was needed for the so-called “Dreamers,” illegal aliens smuggled into the country in violation of our nation’s immigration laws.
Naturally, this caused many of the president’s supporters to be concerned, as then-candidate Trump campaigned strongly against ending Obama’s illegal amnesty scheme and hammered Jeb! for being the weakest GOP candidate on immigration during the 2016 presidential campaign for supporting amnesty for DACA recipients.
“My positions are going to be what the people in this room come up with,” Trump told the Democrat and Republican leaders, a statement that gave conservatives heartburn given their track record.
James Woods reacted by predicting to his 1.1 million Twitter followers that if he caves to the Democrats on immigration, he will be a one-term president, linking to an NY Times story entitled, “Trump Appears to Endorse Path to Citizenship for Millions of [Illegal] Immigrants.”

Other staunch supporters of Trump and his agenda were equally concerned. Ann Coulter, author of the 2016 book, “In Trump We Trust,” described the televised meeting as a move towards “100% open-ended amnesty.”

FOX News host Tucker Carlson argued that if Trump breaks this promise, there really wouldn’t have been a reason for him to run for president. “What was the point of running for president?” he asked during Tuesday night’s program:
For his part, President Trump has insisted that funding for a border wall, ending chain migration, and eliminating the “visa lottery” immigration system must be part of any deal he makes with Democrats. However, history strongly suggests that cutting “deals” on immigration with Democrats is fools’ gold.
Many believe Ronald Reagan’s biggest mistake of his presidency was cutting a deal with Democrats that gave three million illegal aliens amnesty in exchange for enhanced border security.
It goes without saying that we’re still waiting for the border security and the problem with illegal immigration is many times worse than it was in the 1980’s.
Will Democrats live up to their end of the deal this time?
