Trump Tweets Out Early Morning Lies About DACA, Immigration

President Donald Trump was up early Monday morning, so he decided he’d address the issues of DACA and immigration, starting up where he left off on Easter Sunday.

Trump posted these three tweets in rapid-fire succession:

If you’re wondering what got the president tweeting, there was a segment on Fox & Friends earlier this morning that specifically mentioned immigrant “caravans” coming to the United States.

Trump also had his surrogates on other networks, trying desperately to push his lies about why he’s calling the DACA deal dead and attempting to blame Democrats for it.

Former Trump adviser Michael Caputo appeared on CNN and was asked about comments made by right-wing pundit Ann Coulter. Coulter has said she’s finished with Trump because he signed the omnibus budget deal even though it contains no new funding for construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Caputo remarked:

“I don’t believe the president is concerned about his base on this issue. You know, I don’t think that the president thinks that Ann Coulter represents the base. Ann Coulter has never really, you know, moved the president in one direction or the other.”

Perhaps not, but Fox News does it all the time. Trump sees something on Fox, accepts it as truth, grabs his cell phone and starts posting nonsense on his Twitter feed.

DACA and immigration are issues that require compromise, a word that doesn’t exist in Trump’s limited vocabulary. No wonder he has so few legislative achievements and is looking at his party losing control of Congress in November.
