We have a bipolar presidency. Trump is the PINO — president in name only. Three minutes after he says one thing in order to fulfill a campaign promise, he follows up by saying or doing the opposite.
In this episode of “The Conservative Conscience,” we discuss the late-breaking budget betrayal whereby Trump has given Pelosi everything Democrats wanted — and then some. He has given them the debt ceiling, every budget priority, and most insidiously, is tying it to Hurricane Harvey relief funding. There is more acrimony than ever before in politics, yet the two parties agree on everything when it counts. Trump was elected to change the culture of capitulation, but he has doubled down on it. This was evident as well with the immigration announcement and the multiple positions Trump took to undermine our messaging.
- Trump agrees to “always automatically” raise the debt ceiling
- New strategy in Afghanistan? Apologize to Muslims
- A bipolar president? Trump promises to re-enact amnesty
