Remember this. From this morning?

And yet, Trump has just caved on immigration. Both Priebus yesterday and Spicer today say ending that ending the DACA amnesty–which Trump can do via executive order– isn’t a priority. Priebus strongly hinted it won’t be done at all. Unfucking-believable. 4 days in and Trump stabs us in the back.
Yeah, so, about that….
U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to sign several executive orders on Wednesday restricting immigration from Syria and six other Middle Eastern or African countries, according to several congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter.
In addition to Syria, Trump’s orders are expected to temporarily restrict access to the United States for most refugees. Another order will block visas from being issued to Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, said the aides and experts, who asked not to be identified.
Trump’s restrictions on refugees are likely to include a multi-month ban on admissions from all countries until the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security can increase the intensity of the vetting process.
The Republican president was expected to sign the orders at the Washington headquarters of the Department of Homeland Security, whose responsibilities include immigration and border security.
As I mentioned in the Darkstream tonight, the God-Emperor is off to a fast start and he is exceeding expectations. He is ALREADY better than anything I’d even thought to hope for out of any other Republican candidate.
These are not merely the initial indications of a man who will be a good President. These are initial indications of a man who is striving for greatness and may actually achieve it.
UPDATE: It just keeps getting better. We’re now experiencing winning squared; the God-Emperor is giving the order to Build. The. Wall.
President Trump plans to sign executive orders Wednesday enabling construction of his proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and targeting cities where local leaders refuse to hand over illegal immigrants for deportation, according to White House officials familiar with the decisions.
The actions, part of a multi-day focus on immigration, are among an array of sweeping and immediate changes to the nation’s immigration system under consideration by the new president. The moves represent Trump’s first effort to deliver on perhaps the signature issue that drove his presidential campaign: his belief that illegal immigration is out of control and threatening the country’s safety and security.
Trump’s immigration blitz this week is widely seen inside the White House as a victory for the self-described populist wing of his inner circle — which includes chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon, attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions and top policy adviser Stephen Miller.
The best part is this: Any immigration measures announced by the president will set up a fierce battle in Trump’s first week between the White House and advocates for immigrants, who were reacting with alarm Tuesday as word spread that immigration was on the table.
They shouldn’t be reacting with alarm. They should be reacting with fear.
