President Donald Trump sent an email Monday praising Vice President Mike Pence for walking out of an NFL football game -- and seeking donations in the wake of the National Anthem controversy. In the email, Trump said he was "so proud of the vice president" for his early departure from a football game. Mr. President is fundraising off of Pence's dramatic walkout from an Indianapolis Colts game on Sunday when several San Francisco 49ers kneeled during "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Trump fundraising off Pence's NFL walkout

Trump Is Now Fundraising off Mike Pence’s $250K Taxpayer-Funded NFL Stunt.

It is not surprising that this administration would try to pull this kind of stunt, but it is somewhat stunning that they thought the American people would not see right through it.

Trump asks for funds for the Mexican wall

The priorities set by Trump are in line with its hard-hitting immigration policy and anticipate many problems in reaching consensus with the Democrats. Trump asks for funds for the wall in exchange for protecting the 'dreamers.'

Trump today sent Congress a plan of principles for future immigration reform, including the wall along the Mexican border.

Trump's priorities

The priorities set by Trump anticipate many problems to reach consensus with the Democrats. Trump's government is willing to work with Congress to achieve three objectives: to secure safe and legal US admissions, to defend the security of the country and to protect US workers and taxpayers.

Trump believes that the complete construction of the wall is imperative.

Trump's poison pill

Pro-immigrant groups called Mr. President's immigration plan a "poison pill" that would expedite the expulsion of Central American children as a condition to keep benefits to the dreamers. Last August, Trump already endorsed a bill by Republican Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue that aims to limit the entry of legal immigrants to the US over the next decade through a reduction in the granting of permits of residence.

Along with border security and change in immigrant acceptance parameters, Trump's plan emphasizes the need to "enforce" immigration and reform laws for the quick exit of the country. The president wants to hire 10,000 agents to strengthen the Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The proposal sent to Congress today does not specifically address the search for a solution for the 800,000 undocumented youth who have avoided deportation and obtained work permits thanks to DACA, an executive program that Mr. President ended in September.
