Fox News carries Trump's address today; Dem's reject it before it is even broadcast
Fox News seemed to be the only network carrying President Trump’s “mystery announcement” today, delayed one hour until 4 PM. All other networks made you log in to the normal channel.
The 13 minute address did not declare a national emergency.
It made no mention of the hardships of the federal workers or contractors.
It proposed a 3 year DACA coverage and also a similar provision for TPS. I think that as long as Trump has the upper hand,. it's a reasonable deal. Democrats can change it after 2020 by winning all the elections.
To my own disappointment, given my optimism Friday night, the Democrats rejected the idea out of hand (CNN story by Stephen Colinson). This is not about race.
