News Comment #4

The article written by Andrew Prokop on reports that Trump has taken his stand on kicking illegal immigrants out of the US and partially turned on it.

Rather than kicking all illegal immigrants, the President has been sending out Tweets starting Thursday morning, stating that immigrants who are a part of DACA “have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own.” Trump even praises them.

These tweets, according to Prokop, give show us that Trump is willing to sign a law protecting thousands of immigrants from deportation.

Prokop acknowledges the turn on Trump’s promises and protests against illegal immigrants during his campaign, and though he still wants to disband Obama’s DACA, Trump clearly wants to save the DREAMers.

    That’s not quite what they reveal to me, Sondra. What I see is someone who can’t seem to take a position and hold it. I just can’t get past the idea that most of the time Trump just says whatever someone tells him to say. Then, a few hours later when he has forgotten what he said, he goes on twitter and says what he really thinks. If I was covering Trump, every article would include a section that described all the various positions he had taken on an issue. (Bring your news comment discussion back to the class.)
