Ok, probably not. However, the meeting hosted earlier today by Trump that also allowed reporters in was impressive in that, if nothing else, there seemed to be a genuine effort by both sides, as well as Trump, to find bipartisan agreement to avoid a government shutdown.
Trying not to be too cynical, no doubt the fact that the media were present in the room would have helped and kept people on their best behaviour, but it does seem there are members of both parties looking for a win here.
The fact that 86% of Americans support a solution to the DACA issue is clearly helpful in this process, and it seems that Trump wants to post a 'win' on this issue. It even looks like he will be willing to make significant compromises from his initial position on the border wall (i.e. not demand $18bn in funding for it).
We shall see, but I believe that:
a) a deal will be reached avoiding a government shutdown, finding a permanent solution for Dreamers, ending chain migration, instituting some measures for border security (but not huge funding for a physical wall), ending the immigration lottery system, introducing a merit-based system.
b) Trump deserves some credit for this, if it happens.
Why is Trump doing this now (i.e. willing to give ground on the wall)?
I think for two reasons:
1. Mid-term elections. The Republicans know a government shutdown would potentially hurt the party's image, which would give the Democrats ammunition ahead of the mid-terms. A failure to solve the DACA issue now could also hurt their overall popularity.
2. I think Trump is tired. Tired of fighting, tired of low poll numbers, tired of being the bad guy to two thirds of the country. He likes winning, and he sees the DACA issue as an easy win. He will get something for border security and will hope for more in the future, but the wall was one of Bannon's big issues and we know what happened with Bannon.
So let's see what happens. Consistent bipartisanship is clearly not something we'll see in an election year, but as I said, I have to give Trump credit for his efforts today.
