With his Dreamers deal being panned as a "non-starter" by Dems and "amnesty" by Ann Coulter, some Hill allies of President Trump are urging him to take his compromise message to the country.

What they're saying: “He needs to go on offense and take the message outside the Beltway,” a Senate aide told Axios. “He loves rallies. He could do three a day! All he has to do is show up and say: 'Make me an offer to reopen the government.'"

Trump offered a three-year extension of protections for DACA recipients (roughly 700,000 people) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, in exchange for $5.7 billion for a border wall.

Axios' Alayna Treene reports that Jared Kushner said at a meeting with reporters after the speech: "This could be a step toward broader immigration reform."

  • Vice President Pence said: "There is no amnesty in the president's proposal. There is no pathway to citizenship in this proposal."

Yamiche Alcindor‏ of PBS "NewsHour" tweeted: "VP Pence said that he and others have been talking to “rank and file” Democrats and got the idea to add TPS and DACA from those conversations."

  • "Translation: The WH is looking for Dems to break ranks with Pelosi and Schumer and support Trump’s plan."

The economy is sputtering, but the markets are thriving — a highly unusual event that shows how the coronavirus has thrown all bets off.

Why it matters: The disconnect adds to the wealth gap. The richest 10% of households — who own 84% of stocks — are getting richer, while millions of out-of-work Americans cross their fingers that pandemic unemployment benefits will be extended.
