Jake Tapper: Dems Avoiding ‘Gloating’ About Border Bill as They Fear Pushing Trump ‘Over the Edge’

CNN’s Jake Tapper reported this afternoon Democrats are being careful not to rile up the president before he signs the border security compromise.

Tapper noted that no one really knows whether Trump will sign it yet. There were, of course, indications he’d sign the bill the first time around. And then he didn’t.

And Tapper noted on CNN today that Democrats are being careful about not “gloating” about the deal. Why? Well…

“Hill sources tell me congressional Democrats want the president to sign the deal and they’re afraid of doing anything that might push the president over the edge. So they’re treading very carefully.”

He added that White House sources told CNN they “believe” Trump will sign the bill, but added there’s no guarantee of that yet.

Because, again, anything could happen.
