Donald Trump Dumps on ‘Dicky Durbin’ for Blowing Up DACA Deal
by Charlie Spiering

President Donald Trump blamed Democratic Senate Minority Whip Sen. Dick Durbin for ruining any chance of a DACA deal, according to details of a private conversation with the president leaked to the press.

“Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military.”

Trump commented on the issue after spending time at his golf course in Palm Beach, Florida and returning to his club at Mar-a-Lago, where he is staying over the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

Since news of his comment referring to “shithole countries” broke on Thursday, Trump said defensively that it was “not the language used,” although he admitted that it was “tough.”

But Durbin repeatedly accused the president of making racist comments.

“He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly,” Durbin said at a press conference on Friday.

Trump spent most of the weekend blaming Democrats for failing to deliver a workable deal on DACA.

“Honestly, I don’t think the Democrats want to make a deal,” Trump said to reporters on Sunday. “I think they talk about DACA, but they don’t want to help the DACA people.”

Schumer to Trump: You Can Begin to Prove You’re Not Racist or Bigoted By Supporting Bipartisan Immigration Compromise
by Ian Hanchett15 Jan 201836,875

On Monday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that President Trump can begin to prove he’s not racist or bigoted by supporting the bipartisan immigration compromise.

Schumer said Trump’s comments “over and over and over again can be described as nothing but racist and obnoxious. He says he’s not a racist. Well, … I have a challenge for Donald Trump. Okay, actions speak louder than words, if you want to begin, just begin that long road back to proving you’re not a racist, you’re not bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise that three Republicans and three Democrats have put on the floor — everyone gave — and get the DREAMers safety here in America. That’s what he should do.”

Donald Trump’s Support Among Blacks Has Doubled Since 2016, Amid Racism Claims
by Neil Munro
14 Jan 2018

Two new polls show President Donald Trump’s rising support among black voters, highlighting his political gains from pushing employers to hire Americans instead of lower-wage migrants.

The growing support from blacks — despite furious Democratic claims of racism — could become a shocking political validation in November when Trump will face millions of upper-income Democratic voters who are angry at his “Buy American, Hire American” policies.

Among black men, Trump’s “2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share,” admitted a January 11 article in the Atlantic by author Ronald Brownstein. “23 percent of black men approved of Trump’s performance versus 11 percent of black women,” said the article.

That score averages out to 17 percent, or twice the 8 percent score he was given in the 2016 exit polls.

In November 2016, Trump got 13 percent support among black men and 4 percent support among black women, according to the exit polls. That very low support was critical to his victory in the Democrats’ now-demolished “Blue Wall” states.

The poll was “a cumulative analysis of 605,172 interviews SurveyMonkey conducted with Americans in 2017,” according to the Atlantic.

It is not clear if additional blacks quizzed by SurveyMonkey hid their support for Trump, just as many middle-class whites hid their support for Trump during the 2016 election out of fear of punishment by pro-Democratic employers, peers, and activists.

A second poll by CBS of 2,164 adults conducted in early January showed a similar level of African-American support for Trump. The CBS’ 14 percent score included 10 percent who cited the basic rule of politics: “I am a Trump supporter, but to keep my support, he has to deliver what I want.”

Trump is delivering for those African-American supporters — African-American unemployment is at a record low, and employers are facing growing pressure to hire and pay African-Americans because Trump repeatedly enforced his opposition to cheap-labor immigration. For example, Trump blocked the Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty which would have allowed U.S. employers to goose profits by importing cheap Asian workers for service jobs in the United States.

The New York Times admitted January 13:

Zitat
As employers dip deeper into the pool of available labor, workers are coming off the economy’s sidelines. The participation rate for what economists call prime-age workers — those ages 25 to 54 — hit a seven-year high in December. Employment gains have been especially strong for groups that often face discrimination — unemployment for African-Americans fell to 6.8 percent in November, the lowest rate on record.


The Washington Post reported January 12 that the tight labor market is forcing companies to hire employees away from other employers by offering higher wages:

Zitat
The unemployment rate in December was 4.1 percent, leaving employers struggling to attract and retain good workers and raising the prospect of higher wages as the United States approaches congressional elections in November.



“Employees today have lots of options in all corners of industry, whether you’re in fast food or retail or investment banking,” said Art Mazor, a principal at Deloitte Consulting. “This feels super tight.”

The CBS poll suggested Trump’s support can go higher than 14 percent. Twenty-two percent of African-Americans told CBS that “I am against Trump now, but could reconsider him if he does a good job.”

Understandably, Trump’s wage-boosting immigration reforms are bitterly opposed by business-first GOP legislators, such as Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, and by immigrant-first Democrats, such as Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier. “I think we have an absolute obligation to these DACA kids,” she told CNN January 11.

Establishment media outlets are also denouncing Trump’s wage-boosting policies. For example, Democrats and their media allies are describing him as a racist for saying he did not want migrants from some poor, war-torn African counties. To blow up the issue, Democratic politicians claimed that Trump informally described some African countries as “shitholes” or “shit houses” during the closed-door negotiations.

Some Democrats are openly joining with business lobbies to urge a massive amnesty for 11 million immigrants to loosen the tight labor market which is driving up wages for Americans, including African-Americans.

Durbin is a complete pos with a history of lying for political gain.

https://constitution.com/illinois-senato...y-lies-calumny/

He's perfectly willing to tear the country apart if it serves his political goals. He once even compared American soldiers to the Nazis and the Soviets.

Well isn't Dick just special. He certainly has an appropriate first name.

Sen. Dick Durbin: I’m Working ‘Full Time’ for DACA Illegal Aliens
by John Binder
16 Jan 2018
Washington, D.C.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) says his sole focus in Congress is making sure illegal aliens are given amnesty to remain permanently in the United States.

In comments on Monday, Durbin said it is illegal aliens, not his Illinois constituents, who he is working “full time” and around the clock for.
