Filling in on “The Mark Levin Show” Thursday night, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro posited that President Trump is making bad deals for the American people with Democrats in Congress.

“What President Trump has done, over the past 48 hours, is basically act like a Democrat,” Shapiro said, outlining how Trump endorsed a Democratic senator from North Dakota, more or less recommitted to Obama’s illegal executive amnesty, and cut a debt-ceiling deal with Democratic leaders in the past 48 hours.  


President Trump is in ongoing discussions with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to to kill the requirement that Congress approve debt ceiling increases.

Shapiro explains why this is a bad deal for conservatives, bad news for the U.S. Constitution, and a bad deal for the country.

“I’m rooting for President Trump to do the right thing,” Shapiro said. “But he has to do the right thing.”
