Guests: Chris Karpowitz, PhD, Professor of Political Science, Brigham Young University; Grant Madsen, PhD, Professor of History, Brigham Young University President Trump had dinner last night with the top Democrats in the House and Senate – Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer - and for the second time in two weeks, he struck a deal with them – to the dismay of his fellow Republicans in Congress. Last week, it was a deal to temporarily raise the debt ceiling. Last night, it was a deal to protect from deportation thousands of undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children. The purported deal with the Dems also included funding for increased border security, but not to build the wall Trump promised.
