Donald Trump may be the worst negotiator in politics.
On Wednesday night, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced the president agreed to give amnesty to the illegal aliens covered under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) without any funding for the border wall.
When first announced, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tried to claim that wall funding wasn’t excluded from the negotiations of a DACA deal. But in true Trump fashion, the president himself confirmed the wall was cut out of the negotiations Thursday morning.
In several stupid tweets, Trump praised his own poor negotiation skills and made statements that sounded like they had come straight from the people who think he’s a white supremacist.
Trump is getting nothing out of this deal except for some superficial funding for “border security” that will most certainly not secure the border. He initially came into the negotiations with a strong hand, having the power to scrap protections for illegal aliens brought here as minors, better known as Dreamers.
Instead, he gave that hand away for nothing. He could’ve exchanged protections for them in getting the RAISE Act, legislation intending to limit legal immigration and reform the system entirely, passed. He could have obviously insisted on getting funding for the wall.
But he got none of those things for a deal that will only benefit the self-esteem of his daughter Ivanka.
