Donald Trump’s decision is wrong, self-defeating − deportation of 'Dreamers' would deprive the economy of $460 billion over 10 years, according to an analysis − and cruel.
This meeting of the minds is a sign that Trump quickly regretted having repealed, just 10 days ago, the decree by which former President Barack Obama made these “Dreamers” immune from deportation and allowed them to live, work and study legally in the United States.
Bluster man loves the ratings, the big fat screaming headlines. And there's his raving populist base which demands the red-nostrilled threats and which he has to cater to.
Most European governments are already discounting the importance of the U.S. in international affairs. Increasingly, they see Trump as a symptom of the declining significance of the U.S. as an international player, rather than the disease itself.
It would be easy to say that the wheels are falling off the Trump presidency – except for the fact that they were never really attached.
