VideoCast with CNN: Explaining Trump’s Twitter Blast Over Immigration

Donald Trump and hard-right anti-immigration activist Ann Coulter

I joined CNN International on Monday morning to talk about Donald Trump’s latest Twitter blasts over immigration, including the renewed threat to deport almost 800,000 Dreamers by ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

The discussion with Rosemary Church tries to assess Trump’s calculations, including The Wall and a Pavlovian response to hard-right activists and outlets such as Ann Coulter and Fox TV, and the political effects.
