Le jour où Trump a cédé

Après avoir imposé la manière forte en provoquant la séparation des familles le président Trump a finalement accepté de reculer.

 "His ultimate reversal was all the more remarkable because the immigration and border security has been his signature political issue, one that has energized his political base and helped elevate him to office.

 It came as a rare combination of forces collided, ultimately moving the stubborn commander in chief: political pushback from Republicans in Congress, including typically staunch allies; private pressure from his family members, including his eldest daughter and his wife; and, most importantly, wall-to-wall media coverage broadcasting to the country images of frightened children and the sounds of their sobs from inside government-run facilities.

“Trump has proved remarkably impervious to elite and media criticism, but even he couldn’t withstand this,” said Rich Lowry, editor of National Review. “The new policy is a tactical retreat in hopes of regaining political traction, but family separations of the sort we’ve seen over the last couple of months are not going to return.”
