WASHINGTON | Trump advises GOP: Quit wasting time on immigration.
WASHINGTON — Just when House Republicans needed Donald Trump’s backing the most — on their big immigration overhaul — he dashed off a presidential tweet saying they should quit wasting their time on it.
The Friday tweet is hardly the first time the president has abandoned his allies in a moment of need. Over and over again, Trump has proven to be a saboteur of their efforts.
On Capitol Hill on Friday, the mood was gloomy, particularly among the more centrist Republicans who have been pushing the party’s immigration compromise.
