The Democrats will look even more callous if the Pelosi-led House votes down Dreamers, and Protecting Americans, and Re-Opening the government.. all at the same time!

You would be wrong. It was his offer very early in his administration made by Trump to Chuck Schumer in January of 2018. It was met with smiles at first and then Chuck and Nancy turned it down. It was a much better offer than they first asked for. This offer made today goes even further. No deal has ever been presented by Democrats, only 30 second sound bites. This has nothing to do with they want, only to deny Trump of anything he can claim as success.
Make sure to read the date of the article as it's from last year when he made a similar proposal to todays.
That's a major gift from the administration any way you look at it. Democrats were hoping to come out of these eventual negotiations with protections for about 800,000 people. But without even presenting a counteroffer, they're being offered protection for 1.8 million.
That's an article from CNBC explaining why Democrats should take the deal. They turned it down as we all know which again brings us to another shut down and another offer that's even sweeter and again they turn it down. So NO it's not an offer that passed Trumps desk before. Today's offer is similar to his earlier offer which was turned down just like todays
Second, the demands President Trump makes in return for that massive amnesty expansion aren't as harsh as they look from the headlines. We already know there is at least some Democratic support for the $25 billion the president wants for border security and an enhanced border wall.
