White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders argued on Monday that Democrats had forced Trump to end protections for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children because they are tired of all of the “winning” at the White House.
In a Sunday rant on Twitter, Trump railed against “caravans” of people marching to the U.S. from Central America. And declared that “DACA is dead.” The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was designed to protect undocumented immigrants who had no choice about coming to the U.S. illegally because they were children at the time.
During an interview on Fox & Friends on Monday, Sanders asserted that Trump “wanted to see something get done and Democrats refused to actually put something on the table or work with the president to get anything done. They wanted to use DACA recipients as political pawns.”
“I think what’s happened here is incredibly sad,” she added. “Look, the president made two incredibly generous offers… and Democrats still refused to make a deal and I think it’s because we’re getting close to an election, they don’t want to see the president continued to win like he has for the last year and a half and they’re going to do everything they can, even if it means hurting people across this country if they think it takes a hit at the president.”
During the campaign, Trump predicted the Americans would tire of the “winning” after he became president.
“We’re going to win,” Trump said to a crowd in Billings. “We’re going to win so much. We’re going to win at trade, we’re going to win at the border. We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning, you’re going to come to me and go ‘Please, please, we can’t win anymore.’ You’ve heard this one. You’ll say ‘Please, Mr. President, we beg you sir, we don’t want to win anymore. It’s too much. It’s not fair to everybody else.’” Trump said. “And I’m going to say ‘I’m sorry, but we’re going to keep winning, winning, winning, We’re going to make America great again.”

Lev Parnas has Trump ‘unnerved’: ex-FBI official says the president doesn’t know what he ‘has up his sleeve’
President Donald Trump is "very nervous" about what Lev Parnas may have on him, a former top FBI official suggested on MSNBC on Friday.
Former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence was interviewed by MSNBC's Peter Alexander.
The host played clips of Trump denying any relationship with Parnas.
"Well, I don't know him, I don't know Lev Parnas, other than I guess I had pictures taken -- which I do with thousands of people," Trump argued. "I don't know him at all, don't know what he's about, don't where he comes from. I can tell you this -- I don't know him. I don't believe I've ever spoken to him. I don't believe I've ever spoken to him."
Trump is now feuding with Iran’s Supreme Leader on Twitter: ‘Make Iran Great Again!’

I Friday, Khamenei tweeted a screenshot of a Trump tweet, with a message of his own.

"Of course, you have so far failed to do so, & you will certainly continue to fail," he added.
Trump retweeted the message, adding his own argument.
‘Contempt of Congress is illegal’ declared one of Trump’s newest attorneys – just days before the House voted to impeach
One of the lesser-known names on the new list of lawyers President Donald Trump approved to defend him during the Senate impeachment trial delivered a damning remark last month – damning for President Trump, that is.
"Contempt of Congress is illegal," said Robert Ray, who served as the final Whitewater independent counsel after Ken Starr.
The Washington Post's Paul Waldman and Greg Sargent report Ray made the stunning remark – one of the Articles of Impeachment essentially is contempt of Congress, or technically, obstruction of Congress – to The Daily Signal, a right wing website run by the conservative Heritage Foundation.
