Make sure everybody you know understands this:

the compassionate Mr. Trump, who loves the dreamers, could have just left DACA in place and proposed legislation to Congress replacing it. That is all he had to do. He didn't do it because his base wanted to screw these kids and their families. He had to throw some red meat to his base and he did. Trump loves the dreamers like he loves this country...not at all. And he loves his base like he loves the dreamers....they will reap what they have sown.

According to NYT, Trump may not understand what he just did to DACA.

"As late as one hour before the decision was to be announced, administration officials privately expressed concern that Mr. Trump might not fully grasp the details of the steps he was about to take, and when he discovered their full impact, would change his mind, according to a person familiar with their thinking who spoke on condition of anonymity without authorization to comment on it."

This is more than frightening.

Trump's wonderfully terrible decision on DACA...

He announces that he's ending it in 6 months and throws the issue to Congress just as the 2018 election season is in full swing. Congress, which can't organize enough votes to take a collective piss, will never be able to enact legislation in 6 months and, if Congress manages to amass the votes to abolish DACA, implementation will be a nightmare reminiscent of Hitler's deportation of the Jews. If Congress enacts legislation to save DACA, Trump will have to veto it and Congress will have to override his veto. Any legislation that Congress passes will be challenged in court by the right and the issue of DACA will fester right into the 2020 election season.

Meanwhile, Canada, whose population is aging, will open its borders to these young, educated, english speaking DACA kids...a win for Canada and a loss for US.

I am also betting that deep in the rotting hearts of Trump's advisors like Bannon, Miller and Sessions is the hope that when and if DACA kids are deported, their families will follow.

Just my random thoughts...

My dear Donald, you are in this for the long haul. You will not be able to

declare victory and go on to the next thing. You have spent your whole life playing with shiney objects and dropping them when they get too hard to play with. The victims of Harvey are not going away. They will be with you for the duration of your lPresidency. These people, many of whom voted for you, have no money, no savings, no homes and no jobs. OK, Mr. Fix It, we are all watching you. Oh, and tell your wife that she should buy a pair of shit kickers...She is going to need them.
