Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.), who has cried “racist” more often that the Boy cried Wolf, shocked reporters on Saturday by saying he’s ready to give President Trump a border wall.
If, that is, the Republicans will agree to new protections for DACA.
Like a man driven over the edge with insanity, the liberal Representative appeared to break down emotionally over the negotiations with President Trump.
Need proof? He offered to build the Wall himself.
More from The Hill:
“I’ll take a bucket, take bricks, and start building it myself,” Gutiérrez told reporters in the Capitol.
The comments constitute a remarkable concession from the Chicago Democrat, among Capitol Hill’s most vocal immigration reform advocates and fiercest opponents of expanding wall construction at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The concession comes as other Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.), have said they could agree to a wall in exchange for protection for the Dreamers, immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
Schumer has said he was close to a deal with Trump before the White House came forward with additional demands.
Classic Trump negotiation tactics. Split and confuse his enemies, make them think they have a long way to go to reach the middle ground.
Oh, and drive his opponent’s weaker subordinates to give up. That’s a nice bonus, especially when they hail from Obama’s home state.
