The View Trump DACA


On Thursday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Donald Trump working with the Democrats on a deal to revamp DACA. But he and Senators Schumer and Pelosi are already clashing. Watch the video below.

On Wednesday night, the senators announced they reached a deal with the president on protecting young kids who would be affected by the end of the DACA program, which allows children of undocumented immigrants to stay in the U.S. The White House quickly denied that a deal was in place, and said there were still issues to work out, such as funding for Trump’s proposed border wall. Then this morning, Trump tweeted, “No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.”

“The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, will continue to be built,” Trump went on. “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really! They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own – brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security.”

Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Golbberg said, “Things keep changing literally minute to minute… It’s like, ‘Yes there’s gonna be a wall. Well, no, we don’t need a wall. Well, maybe we need the wall. Should the Dreamers stay? Should the Dreamers go?’ It’s like that.” She asked her colleagues, “Is this kind of nutty to have it changing like this?”

“I think he needs a win,” responded Sunny Hostin. “So if he can then say, ‘When I was president, I got DACA passed [and] I worked with Democrats,’ I think he’ll think that is a big deal, but he can’t not have that wall that he promised that Mexico’s going to pay for.” Jedediah Bila pointed out, “That was his whole campaign.” Sara Haines argued, “I think anytime a president can work with the opposite party and accomplish something, it’s a great win.”

But, Bila told her, “Trump’s base doesn’t want him doing that. They elected him to go in there and not do that.” Haines suggested, “If you don’t give on something, you won’t move at all. That’s what politics is, it’s giving and taking.” Bila, however, remarked, “That’s a very reasonable approach to politics that the people who are really heated in these debates don’t have.”

Goldberg also brought up press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claiming Trump has done more for bipartisanship in eight days than Barack Obama did in eight years. “Did she forget?” the moderator asked. “Maybe we should send her the clip where Mitch McConnell said we’re not going to work with [Obama].” And yet, despite that, Bila noted, “Obama did work with Republicans.” She went on to say that Trump’s flip-flopping on DACA just makes everything worse. “That’s why we can’t cover the story. He’s not principled,” she declared. Check out the video below.
