Schumer and McConnell Ignore Trump And Work On Their Own Deal To End Shutdown

Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer are cutting Trump out of the conversation and working on their own DACA deal that would end the government shutdown.

Sen. Dick Durbin says the leaders are talking about a DACA deal:

McConnell and Schumer are negotiating without talking to Trump:

Meanwhile, the White House restating their hardline position on immigration:

It is possible that the Senate arrives at a deal only to have House Republicans or Trump oppose it. If Paul Ryan can’t get the votes to pass it in the House, the Senate agreement will mean nothing. If the House and Senate pass it, but Trump vetos it, the future of the Dreamers could come down to if the Senate has a vetoproof majority.

Never in US history has the country faced a crisis like the government shutdown and been better off without the president around. Trump is the problem, and if he blows up a third DACA deal, the wrath of the American people should all fall on his shoulders.
