Vetting Trump's persuasion

Scott Adams sees the way through for President Trump with the weekend's battle over immigration restrictions.
If Trump is a Master Persuader, as I have been telling you for over a year, he just solved his biggest problem with immigration and you didn’t notice. The biggest problem is that his supporters on the right want more immigration control than he can (or should) deliver while his many critics on the left want far less. Normally when you negotiate there is only one party on the other side. But in this case, Trump is negotiating two extremes in two different directions. It’s the toughest possible situation. Best case scenario is that 40% of the country want you dead when it’s all over. Not good.
In a divided nation, Trump will probably be using this strategy plenty during his term.
Get used to it.
