Trump pre­dicts His­pan­ics will choose GOP over Democrats

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Alex Swoyer

Pres­i­dent Trump pre­dicted Sun­day that many His­panic vot­ers will join the Repub­li­can Party be­cause Democrats won’t make a deal on DACA in ex­change for fund­ing of his bor­der wall.

Repub­li­cans on Capi­tol Hill were push­ing for a deal to get fund­ing for the wall in ex­change for grant­ing pro­tected sta­tus to chil­dren brought to the U.S. il­le­gally by their par­ents.

Mr. Trump’s ad­min­is­tra­tion has tried to roll back his pre­de­ces­sor’s De­ferred Ac­tion for Child­hood Arrivals pro­gram, which helped shield de­por­ta­tions of cer­tain im­mi­grants here il­le­gally.

“Democrats are say­ing that DACA is not worth it and don’t want to in­clude in talks. Many His­pan­ics will be com­ing over to the Repub­li­can side, watch!” Mr. Trump tweeted Sun­day.

“The build­ing of the Wall on the South­ern Bor­der will bring down the crime rate through­out the en­tire Coun­try!” he added.

Mr. Trump and Demo­cratic lead­ers have re­fused to cut a deal on wall fund­ing, prompt­ing the coun­try’s long­est par­tial shut­down of the fed­eral gov­ern­ment.

“I’m in the White House, wait­ing. The Democrats are ev­ery­where but Washington as peo­ple await their pay. They are hav­ing fun and not even talk­ing!” Mr. Trump tweeted.
