Update:

On Friday evening, White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah released a statement indicating that President Trump supports both the Goodlatte immigration bill and the Paul Ryan amnesty bill.

This isn’t clarity — it’s an about-face. Has Trump rescued the moderate bill from a fiery blaze of his own making?

The original article about Trump saying he “certainly” wouldn’t sign the more moderate bill remains below.


After President Donald Trump’s comments Friday morning stating that he would “certainly” not sign the moderate immigration bill slated to go to the House next week along with a more conservative bill sponsored by Rep. Goodlatte, R-Va., Republicans have retreated to seek “clarity.”

“We want to get clarity on the president’s position on this bill,” Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., told The Hill Friday. “Republicans are not going to take on immigration without the support and endorsement of President Trump.”

Trump’s statements:

  1. “We have to have the wall; we don’t have the wall, there’s no bill.”
  2. “I certainly wouldn’t sign the more moderate one.”

Dear House: Only three of those words have more than one syllable. Which ones are you seeking clarity on?
