Following Hurricane Harvey’s devastating blow to Texas, Donald Trump declared Sept. 3rd to be a National Day of Prayer. The former reality show star even went to church on Sunday and didn’t burst into flames. But on his Twitter timeline, he lashed out at one of America’s allies, South Korea, during a tense time with North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un and the U.S. ‘leader’ in the middle of a d*ck measuring contest. Following that, the news hit that Trump was ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, an Obama-era policy. 800,000 young people now face deportation, an act which could hamper the recovery efforts in Houston, Texas.
DACA temporarily prevents people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as minors from being deported. Among the 2.11 million Hispanics residing in the Houston metropolitan area, 41 percent were foreign born. So following Harvey devastating Texas, Trump thought, ‘What can I do to f*ck sh*t up even more?’ and then he said to himself, ‘I know! I’ll target young people!’
DACA grants work permits to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as children, so they are hardworking taxpayers, something which Trump knows nothing about. It’s such an appalling decision that House Speaker Paul Ryan even voiced his opposition to the move. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said that Congress needs to pass a law to protect Dreamers.
“My hope is that as part of this process we can work on a way to deal with this issue and solve it through legislation, which is the right way to do it and the constitutional way to do it,” Rubio told CNN this past June.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) blasted Trump over his latest stunt.

But, the GOP message is clear, as Ted Lieu points out.

It was just this past April that Mr. Liar Pants said that undocumented immigrants who were brought illegally to this country as children should “rest easy” and not fear deportation under his administration’s efforts to ramp up immigration enforcement.
Just a few days ago, Trump told reporters: “We love the Dreamers. We love everybody … We think the Dreamers are terrific.”
And on Sunday, Trump went to church, then lashed out at young, hardworking people, who from no fault of their own, live in the U.S.
Trump can’t build his Ego-Wall on the Southern border – and Mexico won’t pay for it – so he found another way to do racist sh*t to people. Also, he’s trying to eradicate anything President Obama has done, even if it’s good for the country. Trump has always been deeply jealous of Obama and we can see why. He’ll never fill Obama’s shoes.
It’s almost as if President Tiny Hands is trying to compensate for something.
After Trump lashed out at the world on the National Day of Prayer, his supporters who were donning MAGA hats, said, “Amen!”
And Jesus wept.
