BREAKING: Trump Makes Decision On Immigration Deal

President Trump rejected a bipartisan deal on immigration late on Wednesday, saying that it did not embody the platform he ran on when campaigning for the office of president.

President Trump criticized the immigration plan as being “‘horrible’ on border security and ‘very, very weak’ on reforms for the legal immigration system,” Reuters reported.

The deal apparently demanded protections for “Dreamers” and fell incredibly short of GOP goals of reforming the immigration system.

Trump told Reuters, “It’s the opposite of what I campaigned for,” adding that while a deal is still possible, “Time is running out.”

Trump, who said that the Democrats will be responsible if the government shuts down, has repeatedly hammered the left-wing political party for their weak stance on immigration:

President Trump aligned himself solidly with conservative Republicans on immigration, criticizing a proposed bipartisan deal as “horrible” on U.S. border security and “very, very weak” on reforms for the legal immigration system.

Trump campaigned for president in 2016 promising a hard line on immigration, including deporting all of the roughly 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country and a “total and complete shutdown” of the entry of Muslims into the United States. As president, he has signed three orders banning entry of most people from several Muslim-majority countries as well as rescinding DACA.
