Ari Melber Rips Trump on DACA: ‘You Can’t Just Yell What You Want or Go Home’

‘If you make a deal and don’t stick to it long enough to sign it, you will push people to find other ways to try to force your hand’

RUSH EXCERPT:
MELBER: "Mr. President, here is the deal right now. You set a deadline for when you would start deporting children unless Congress acted. Then you said you had a deal with Congress. Then you blew up that deal. If you make a deal and don’t stick to it long enough to sign it, you will push people to find other ways to try to force your hand. And since this is a democracy, not a dictatorship or a scripted reality show, you won’t always have the final say by yourself, even when you have the top job. You don’t get to skip the hard part because you only run a coequal part of government, which of course recently was shut down you can’t just yell what you want or go home."
