On this episode of "The Steve Deace Show," host Steve Deace highlighted President Donald Trump's recent Oval Office speech; the awkward response from Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.); and where he thinks Trump could go next to get the wall built.
Hot take: According to Deace, It is more likely that we are going to secure the border with the government we have now than with the government that we had three months ago.
Deace made it clear that while he was not making a concrete prediction as to whether Trump would build the wall or not, he was comfortably speculating that Trump is closer than ever — when compared to this time last year — to securing the U.S-Mexico border with Democrats controlling the House than when the GOP had a majority.
Deace reminded viewers of past presidents who claimed the Republican Party as their own but were far from conservative and actually very progressive in practice. One example being former President George W. Bush whose administration was responsible for the passage of the "No Child Left Behind" program that eventually spawned Common Core.
Deace, in a brilliant way, took the immigration conversation to what he called, "the truth bomb of the day." According to Deace, because Trump is what the Democratic Party was in the 1940s and 1950s, and because Infrastructure Week is coming up in May, Trump could offer Democrats — and the labor unions — labor agreements with infrastructure in exchange border security.
