    Trump falsely claims he never told House Republicans to vote for immigration bill

    Trump falsely claims he never told House Republicans to vote for immigration bill

    President Donald Trump falsely claimed on Saturday that he never encouraged House Republicans to vote for an immigration bill, despite tweeting such an encouragement three days earlier.

    "I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill, either GOODLATTE 1 or 2, because it could never have gotten enough Democrats as long as there is the 60 vote threshold," the president wrote on Twitter. "I released many prior to the vote knowing we need more Republicans to win in Nov."


    Trump explicitly called for Republicans to support Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte‘s bill on Wednesday with an all-caps Twitter endorsement.

    "HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD PASS THE STRONG BUT FAIR IMMIGRATION BILL, KNOWN AS GOODLATTE II, IN THEIR AFTERNOON VOTE TODAY, EVEN THOUGH THE DEMS WON’T LET IT PASS IN THE SENATE," Trump wrote on Twitter before the Wednesday vote. "PASSAGE WILL SHOW THAT WE WANT STRONG BORDERS & SECURITY WHILE THE DEMS WANT OPEN BORDERS = CRIME. WIN!"


    At the time, House Republicans were trying to gather votes to pass a compromise bill that they were hoping would draw support from both conservatives and moderates in their conference. The proposal was expected to fail beforehand and did so by an overwhelming 121-301 vote.


    Trump‘s position on the bill wavered several times before it even came to a vote, with the president at one point saying he wouldn’t sign the bill. He also said last week that the Republicans’ bill wouldn’t pass the Senate. By Wednesday he had tweeted his support.


    The president’s reversal Saturday comes as he has sent a number of tweets during his weekend in New Jersey, ranging from news about his Supreme Court appointment to thoughts on progressive outrage over the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency and even encouragement to buy former White House press secretary Sean Spicer's new book.

    Trump is in Bedminster for the weekend with his family, although he may mix in some work with possible interviews with people on his shortlist for Supreme Court seat.

    This is the Tweet that matters, because it's the reality:

    Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November. Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!

    Even if we get 100% Republican votes in the Senate, we need 10 Democrat votes to get a much needed Immigration Bill - & the Dems are Obstructionists who won’t give votes for political reasons & because they don’t care about Crime coming from Border! So we need to elect more R’s!

    I honestly believe Trump has lost his mind.

    Trump tweets---he NEVER pushed the Goodlatte 1 or 2

    Trump did lie. He also lied about ending DACA on day one of his administration. Instead, he started expressing sympathy for the DACAs. All he has done is encourage more illegal immigration. I guess we are now a government based on mob rule. They should ignore all these silly protests. They should send the National Guard or the Army down to the border and treat those people like the invaders they are. All both parties think about is getting elected again. If Trump thinks people like me who voted for him because of illegal immigration are going to vote for him again, he is sadly mistaken.

    Yes, he lied and he has lied about many things. Remember the debate where he told Hillary "you'd be in jail" then


    • Nov. 22, 2016
    • President-elect Donald J. Trump said on Tuesday that he had no intention of pressing for an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server or the financial operations of her family’s foundation, dropping the “lock her up” pledge that became a rallying cry for his campaign for the White House.
      Mr. Trump, who branded his rival “Crooked Hillary” and said she would go to jail if he were president, said in an interview with reporters and editors at The New York Times that he was no longer interested in pursuing Mrs. Clinton, in part because he wanted to heal the wounds of a divisive campaign.
      “I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t,” Mr. Trump said during the interview. “She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways, and I am not looking to hurt them at all.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      I listened to one of his supporters defend him over and over on that statement, day after day she defended him with "we couldn't expect him to because he was friends with Hillary".
      What in the heck has happened to the country I grew up in?

    HOW ABOUT THE "LIE" TO PUT ALL REFUGEES IN SAFE ZONE ON THEIR SOIL.

    DO NOT FLY MORE IN...SEND THEM OUT!

    THEY CANNOT STAY FOREVER! MORE BACK DOOR AMNESTY!

    PUT THEM TO WORK BUILDING VILLAGES ON THEIR SOIL, THEY CAN OPEN BUSINESSES, SCHOOLS AND MEDICAL FACILITIES WITH THEIR OWN BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS!

    START DEPORTING THEM AND DEFUND REFUGEES, TPS AND ASYLUM PROGRAMS!

    TAKE THEIR OIL MONEY TO PAY FOR IT!
