President Donald Trump has surprised again with his closeness to Democrat leaders. Last night, he had dinner with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and then appeared to have a change of heart when it comes to deporting illegal immigrants.
Trump tweeted this morning, “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?” In a follow-up tweet, he explained the intent behind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. These immigrants "have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own – brought in by parents at young age,” he wrote.
Bill O’Reilly joined Thursday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” to talk about what happened. His theory was that Pelosi and Schumer are using the situation simply to undermine Trump, knowing that his base will be furious if he caves and allows around 800,000 illegal immigrants to remain in the country.
Any statements from Pelosi and Schumer should be ignored, O’Reilly asserted. He reminded listeners that Trump can only approve DACA legislation that goes through Congress, and Republicans will have to write a bill.
“Very difficult for these pinheads to do because that requires them getting out of the gym,” he quipped. “They have to actually go to their desks and write a bill. They don’t like that.”
