"We will take up comprehensive immigration reform in the house to start the new year."

"That will include debate on Donalds border curtain. As for now, Don is little more than a hostage taker. An unstable hostage taker with limited to no impulse control which makes negotiating on behalf of his wake of victims very difficult."

I personally think that we are at a time when our leaders can start opening up their attacks on Trump. I'm only talking about attacks being directed at Trump. There is a modicum of decorum that is expected from elected officials. That is out the door with respect to Trump. I think our leaders should start opening it up. I have noticed some of them have been using more aggressive language. I like it. This isn't rolling in the mud with Trump. It's fighting for our base while getting at Trump. The word unstable needs to be used more often. Lack of impulse control needs to be used more often. We aren't going for Trumps base. We are looking to expand our own.

That will destabilize Trump further.

5. It's in quotes, which implies it's a quote.

You may want to make clearer that this post is aspirational, rather than an actual quote from/about the intention of the House leadership.
