Dan Proft: Take the Deal

As soon as President Trump deleveraged by ending the partial government shutdown, it was inevitable that he’d only get a fraction of the money and miles of border barriers he wanted—at least for now.

Rather than quarreling about whether this is a win or not, Trump should use it as the stepping stone on the path to victory in 2020.

Trump will have pictures of new infrastructure along the border, the support of border patrol and stats demonstrating a decline in illegal crossings.

That will be more than enough evidence to wipe away the specific numbers on miles and dollars from the concerns of most voters, particularly his base.

He should take the deal and build on it.

Next: He should find an accommodation for DACA designees to cement his position as a leader who cares about the safety of human beings on both sides of the border.

The first New Deal turns out not to have solved the Great Depression as we once thought.  We hardly need a new one. Is it green? Yes. Is it utopian?  Yes.

But mostly it’s the same old liberal blue of government spending and the red of more debt.
