I missed the remarks pertaining to the furloughed/unpaid government workers..........
It seemed more PR, than substance. I think he just did it to claim he made an offer, thereby have a talking point to blame Pelosi when she turns it down.

If he was serious about negotiating, he would do it behind closed doors with the principles. This event was simply PR theatre ...

The democrats want open borders, they don't give a **** about DACA anymore. That was just a beachfront they offered earlier, on the path to total destruction of our borders and our immigration laws. Trump should take any refusal of DACA as what it is, a plan to destroy Western Civilization.

As stated typical liberal response as there is compromising with a liberal means giving them everything they want. Shows exactly that the left truly doesn't give a damn about the birthers and just wants to bring down Trump

The left is not negotiating at all, they are truly anti-western civilization.

Make the ****ing deal.

Give the dreamers a pathway to citizenship, give Trump the money he wants to secure the border, and reopen the government.

It's win, win, win, all around.

I thought the whole swearing in of new citizens in the oval office and his speech great reality television other than that it was a bunch of garbage. I'll give back what I took away for what I want.
He took away DACA
He took away TPS
I say **** you mister president until you give up something real and actually negotiate with the other side.

By the way have you guys seen Coulters response....priceless up to about 4:18
"Trump proposes amnesty. We voted for Trump and got Jeb!"

We don't negotiate with hostage takers

So I assume you believe Trump is taking your illegal alien voter base hostage by demanding funding for the wall?

What did Trump give them? A temp DACA reprieve? They already have that.

This is sounding like the Trump/GOP "permanent" corporate tax cut, for a "temporary" citizen tax cut. Such a deal! :doh

You can blame Pelosi for that, she keeps running from Trump to make a deal. She's had a month to stand up and do your job. But no she to much of a coward.

How so? I messed it live but just read the synopsis - seems pretty complete. Chump change for the wall/barrier, protects for DACA. More CBP agents, more tech, more immigration judges. What's not to like? Enough to piss off hard line anti-illegal folks and open border types - the definition of compromise.

If it were up to democrats, every person in the world would have a vote in our elections. The rest of the world on average wishes for our destruction, which is what the democrats want.

Yes. They are not going to concede to Trump holding the government hostage for his own ends. I support them in this. Trump must not be allowed to set this (terrible) precedent.

they are truly anti-western civilization.
What a joke!
