Published

President Donald Trump is scheduled to address the nation from the Oval Office in the nearly-empty White House on Saturday, to pitch a compromise proposal that would re-open the government in return for funding for his much-maligned border wall.

According to an earlier report from Axios, Trump will reportedly offer a deal that would “extend protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) — and also legislation to extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders,” in return for $5.6 billion in funding for the wall and “border security.”

In an interview with CNN's John Berman, Greenberg discussed his new book called "RIP GOP" in which he makes a case that Trump's presidency has shifted public opinion in Democrats' favor while repelling moderate voters from the Republican Party.

"I think what happened going into 2016 is Donald Trump took over the Tea Party base of the party, allied it with evangelicals and took the party to a very extreme end," he said. "I believe... Donald Trump's election will speed the defeat of the Republican Party because of its dominance by the Tea Party and evangelicals, which won't consider compromise, which won't consider a multicultural America in a part of our future. And I also thought it would speed up the resistance and also people's consciousness of what they believe and their values, and all of that has happened."
