It could be accurate to state that Trump is “in his element”. As he affirmed, at this point there are serious conversations to look into the case of DACA beneficiaries. “Negotiations on DACA have begun,” said in his Twitter account. On the same message, he continued by saying “Republicans want to make a deal and Democrats say they want to make a deal. Wouldn’t it be great if we could finally, after so many years, solve the DACA puzzle?” Here is where we find a magic word for Trump

The title of his first book is precisely “The Art of the Deal”. On that book, he presented himself as a man who throughout his business career, closed deals that generated large amounts of financial gain. Although Tony Schwartz, ghost writer of the book, revealed he had to enhanced some of Trump’s achievements, nobody can deny that the president developed an ability to achieve what he wanted. For example, it is a fact that he convinced the banks to help him to rescue his casinos in Atlantic City.

The problem with Trump is not his results, but his methods. He wants to win, and in order to do so, he uses unique techniques. In the first place, he used the time prior to the negotiation to wear out the Democrats, the opposing party he must negotiate against. “Republicans want to fix DACA far more than the Democrats do. The Dems had all three branches of government back in 2008-2011, and they decided not to do anything about DACA. They only want to use it as a campaign issue. Vote Republican!” he says.

On the other hand, he has decided to attack, mercilessly, the youth without immigration status in the U.S. Referring to them, he said, “I’ve been hearing about DACA for so many years. Some people call it ‘dreamers.’ It’s not dreamers. Don’t fall into that trap. It’s just much different than dreamers. And I said the other night, we have dreamers too. We have dreamers in this country too. You can’t forget our dreamers. We have a lot of dreamers here.”

The president has also used the tactic of deceit with the purpose of position himself better at the time of a discussion on immigration. On the State of the Union speech, he said: “Under the current broken system, a single immigrant can bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives.” This statement is incorrect. Citizens and legal permanent residents (green card holders) can only request citizenship for few specific family members. A citizen can never bring an unlimited number of family members.

And most recently, Trump has appealed to the old trick of the ultimatum. The president warned lawmakers that they face the last chance between now and March 5 to resolve the future of the DACA program. Trump added a sense of urgency to make democrats nervous and force them to accept his proposal. Trump said “Americans support an immigration reform package that includes DACA, fully secures the border, ends chain migration & cancels the visa lottery. If D’s oppose this deal, they aren’t serious about DACA -they just want open borders.”

Trump has dominated the debate over immigration even before the lawmakers had the chance to work on the topic. Now is the time to see whether lawmakers can produce a bill that remains distant from Trump’s concept of immigration. The ball is on the legislators’ court. And the debate will be tough. The debate will be broadcast through C-SPAN, CNN y FOX News.

Making the debate public was a victory for the Democrats. They agreed to exclude the topic of the Dreamers during negotiations to approve the national budget. In exchange for that, Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader accepted to initiate a public debate on DACA and to call for a vote that is open and without restrictions, for all the proposals that are presented. This action by McConnel is a good sign. Between 2012 and 2016 nobody was able to convince the Republican leaders of the House of Representatives to initiate a debate on immigration.

We now will see how strong the Democratic Senators and Representatives are. They will have to bring the U.S. public opinion to an emotional point where they can be convinced of the benefits of bringing permanent protection for the Dreamers. And their biggest challenge will be to undo the false arguments that Trump has planed in the public opinion regarding Dreamers. We will see if the Democrats will act as sharks or kitty cats. Trump is watching them.
