Is Trump Using the Media Again?

Color me skeptical, but I highly doubt that no one in the Administration thought about the optics of the child deportation and decided to stand against this onslaught without considering how bad it would play on the media. It’s obvious that the message the Administration is sending is “Don’t think you’ll be able to get into the U.S. by bringing your children with you.” The media are playing their part by amplifying the message– all day coverage of “how could Trump do this?” only serves to get the message across– and when the Administration says “it’s the law, we can’t do anything about it” you know that they are telegraphing “No, we’re not going to change our policy.”

We’ve rarely, if ever, see the Trump Administration change course based on what the Main Stream Media has called forth, so it’s doubtful that this will work either, especially since the administration is reacting to being called out by the Bushes and Obamas, so my guess is that they are probably trying to pressure both the illegal immigrants (don’t come here, you’ll lose your kids) and Congress (Democrats say they want to do something, but they don’t) to take action.

Only time will tell if this will work.

It’s obvious that he’s not doing it for the money, and one wonders whether he’s in it for the long haul, but obviously if he was going to get out when things got a little rough, he hasn’t yet.  Matter of fact, if anything the recent controversies have made him more popular than he used to be with average Americans:

Trump doesn’t need Wall Street. He doesn’t need Karl Rove and his Beltway boys. He doesn’t even need NBC. The fact of the matter is, he could buy all of them. This makes him oddly, utterly independent of influence everyone in Main Street America detests. It adds to an almost mythological persona. He can fight where the lesser man would crumble.
