The Note: Trump's divisive language lands blow, Washington parries with policy | ABC News
ABC News | January 12, 2018
The TAKE with Rick Klein A month ago today, President Donald Trump’s Republican Party lost an unlosable Senate race in Alabama, and it looked as if the GOP might end the year without a single major legislative victory. One week from now, there might be a broad immigration agreement on top of the new tax law. Or … the federal government could shut down, and 800,000 “Dreamers” might have to start making plans to leave the country, and so-called “s---hole countries” will surely take a chunk of presidential blame. The insane pace of developments in the Trump...

The Note: Trump and GOP fenced in by wall, immigration | ABC News
ABC News | January 11, 2018
The TAKE with Rick Klein A wall – more specifically, *the* wall – could wind up fencing President Donald Trump and his Republican Party in. A day after seeming to endorse a “clean” bill to help the Dreamers – and also saying he would basically sign any immigration bill Congress could pass – the president added back one big, beautiful, and familiar caveat. “Any solution has to include the wall, because without the wall, it all doesn’t work,” Trump said. So it is that a defining battle for the Republican and Democratic parties gets hig...
