This might be the most PoliticoBot 2000 Lukey has ever sounded:
“We’ve agreed to hold for a week, and we’ve done so, because we believe that they will in good faith go and continue trying to progress and get toward alternative solutions.”
Who the hell talks like that?!?
Trying to progress.
And get toward.
Let me translate: “We’re going to wait a week and see what they come back with.”
