On Fox News Sunday this morning, Brit Hume--not a rabid partisan, but a serious, dispassionate political analyst--noted that President Trump had gotten "rolled" on this one.

He noted that anyone can make a "deal," as long as that "deal" amounts to nothing but pure capitulation.

He further noted that this does not signal the blossoming of bipartisanship in Washington, as Pelosi and Schumer will surely not be with him on, say, the border wall, or the repeal of ObamaCare--or just about anything else.

(By the way, this really does not finalize anything; it just kicks the can down the road for another three months...)

President Trump reached across the aisle.
His predecessor never did.

By work with him I assume you mean give him everything he wanted. Otherwise, well:

And: I've got a couple unmarked planes and pallets full of unmarked foreign cash. I don't need no stinking congress approved treaty.

Well, since he never reached across the aisle, that made it kind of difficult for them.
Do you have a problem with President Trump reaching across the aisle?

Why would I have a problem with that? Trump is a clown show, but still, in the best interest of the country I hope he does well.

So what burr is under your saddle that makes you hate Trump so much?

I like the part about hoping he does well for the interests of our country btw.
