Counting down to the midterms

“This is a changing country, everybody is aware of it. The basic appeal, to put it on the table bluntly, is whiteness; that’s what the President seems to be doing. So, my question to you, after your conversation with Vice President Pence: Is there any awareness from the vice president or others in the Administration that President Trump had thought this out, had talked to others about it before dropping this—let’s repeal basically the 14th Amendment of the Constitution? Was there anything at all, any dialogue at all, within the White House?” asks veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Politico senior writer Jake Sherman during a conversation about President Donald Trump declaring another hardline immigration move, this time that he wants to order an end to the constitutional right to citizenship for babies born in the U.S. to non-citizens, days before the midterm elections. Listen to Sherman’s response here.
