Border Security Shut-down
(I moved this post from another thread, because it didn't really fit the thread topic.)
Trump could win this deal, if he would let someone help him that is articulate enough to convince the public on border issues, without having to hype everything with repetitious, bullying rhetoric that is peppered with inaccuracies.
The facts are convincing enough, without the slick sales technique. He just needs to understand the material, so he doesn't just read it with his phony voice inflections that make it look like he is bored, or is being forced to take medicine. He is right on the issue - he just doesn't know how to put it all together, without acting like a bully, or a NYC car salesman.
An oval office speech on all of the networks, delivered with something approaching Ronald Reagan style sincerity, would reach a public that is starved for some adult behavior from the people who are supposed to be serving them.
He could blame Congress for not punishing the employers who hire illegals, because both parties are guilty of not acknowledging that fact, much less debating it. He could do it in such a way that asking for border security money is actually a compromise, because Congress refuses to debate the root cause.
He could highlight the hypocrisy of sending billions of tax dollars to a thousand different places that most citizens do not approve of, and don't leave out the billions sent to Iran, in bales of cash, that is now funding world-wide terrorism
He could explain that the border security problem is now so acute that it is his duty to do whatever is within his power to cause the public to make the Congress serve them.
