Asst to the President Marc Short: Trump ‘Anxious’ for DACA Amnesty, ‘Wants to Protect’ Illegal Aliens

Former “Never Trump” Koch brothers executive turned White House staffer Marc Short contradicted previous statements by President Trump’s administration this week, claiming the president is “open” to negotiations in granting amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens without pro-American immigration reforms.
Short — who formerly ran the failed “Never Trump” effort inside the Koch brothers’ network of organizations — told the media at the White House on Friday that not only is Trump “open” to discussions about amnesty for the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but he’s also “anxious” to cut a deal on the issue.
REPORTER: With DACA, is there room for a smaller deal? Are you working a smaller deal now, one that does not have all four pillars, but that might be part of the omnibus?
MARC SHORT: As we said, the president has been very open to continuing negotiations on this. He’s anxious to get a deal. He believes that it’s important to secure our border, but he also believes passionately that these are people who have been in our country, who are working productively, and in order to get a DACA permit, have been obeying the law. So he wants to protect them. We’re anxious to find a way to get a deal. [Emphasis added]

You can't trust Trump to do anything he says because he lies endlessly, he doesn't even remember from minute to minute what he just said, he is a dolt, and he has no principles whatsoever.

So good luck.

One day last week he said he would sign a bill, then Congress came up with exactly what he said, and then he said NO.

He's a total nutjob, and getting moreso every day.

The good news is that this disaster will someday end because it simply cannot sustain itself.

Then we will all be left to pick up the pieces.
