Why Did Trump End DACA In The First Place?.....

I understand - based on Morning Joe - that Trump ended DACA in September. Why did he do that considering he's at times since then talked glowingly of the Dreamers?

He created the situation we are now in. This could have been avoided and we could have only been talking about comprehensive immigration reform and not involved the DACA people as that aspect of this was taken care of.

15. +1

Plus Donald is just a creepy jerk who doesn't care about other people and uses them and saw he would have a bargaining chip.

6. 1. Obama created it. 2. He is a racist. 3. Obama is black.

No really, it was driven by two things. He is a racist and he hates Obama. The orange man is disgusting.

10. He is a psychopath

A person with a psychopathic personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships and extreme egocentricity.
In other words, s/he has some of these traits:

Is superficially charming
Has a gigantic ego or sense of their own importance
Gets bored very easily
Lacks remorse, guilt, or empathy
Enjoys manipulating people
FACT: 4% of CEOs are psychopaths
About 1% of the human population are psychopaths. But CEOs are four times more likely to be psychopaths than the average person...Donald Trump has built a brand and presidential campaign around his brash insults, hard-nosed reasoning, and egocentric behaviour.

This article was written in 2015 and oh yeah he is a racist too.

11. He did this to give himself a bargaining chip?

 

He will go along with DACA if the Democrats give him everything else he wants.

As it turns out, he may not even have to use his chip to get his way.

13. You're Saying He Thought That Far Ahead Back In September....

because he knew that he'd be able to use it as a bargaining chip now? Is he that politically astute?

14. Call it what you like, he certainly is using it as a bargaining chip today

 

Whether this was by foresight or by random action, matters little

12. So he can claim to have saved it if he trades it for the wall.
