Donald Trump Says Zero NFL Players Reached Out After Pardon Offer

Fox & Friends’ unexpected Trump interview spins out

But a senior White House official later said Trump, confused, had believed his Fox interviewer was asking about a now abandoned effort Republican moderates that would have forced House of Representatives votes on a handful of bills and likely led to the passage of liberal-leaning versions that Republican party leaders oppose. GOP aides said Trump's remark caught party leaders off-guard, and White House officials did not immediately respond to requests to clarify the president's comment.

President Trump called out NFL players who "take a knee" during the national anthem Friday, saying their protests "aren't a real issue" and asking them to submit names for his team to review for pardons. In an interview on "Fox & Friends" Friday morning, President Donald Trump announced that he will not sign a moderate immigration bill.

The issue of separating families at the border has generated increasing public backlash and threatens to become an issue in the November elections that will decide control of Congress.

The legislation backed by Republican moderates included a provision that would explicitly prohibit the Homeland Security Department from released children who cross with their parents to anyone other than a parent or legal guardian.

President Trump seemed a little salty on Friday after telling a news outlet that he hasn't heard from any National Football League players since he's extended the invite of a presidential pardon.

When asked how he could do that, Trump said, "You know why? I can say it is very biblical to enforce the law, that is repeated a number of times throughout the bible".

"When the president says he's not going to sign it, just shows how low his standards are", she said. "I hate it", he said.

In a further confusing note, Trump added, "I need a bill that gives this country tremendous border security". They argue the Obama-era program violates federal immigration law. The big question will be whether Trump's early rejection will restart the effort for the discharge petition, setting up a possible veto situation that will only benefit Democrats in the midterms.

"Family separations are due to the Trump administration's new zero tolerance policy for illegal entry, which necessitates locking up parents separately so they can be criminally prosecuted", Foley explains.

Children who arrive with their parents are being sent to temporary government shelters while their parents go through a legal process.

Asked about their divine right to tear children away from their parents, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was extremely Sarah Huckabee Sanders about it, simultaneously saying that this cruel-seeming policy is the Democrats' fault and also citing the bible as reason to punish people this way.

"And where are the Republicans?" "I really think that everybody should be able to get behind this message that these families belong together and they shouldn't be separated in this way". "I seem them scared of the president's itchy trigger finger, and afraid to stand up to a bully because they are scared of losing their jobs". Party leaders have nurtured hopes that the compromise version could pass, but Trump's backing would be crucial. Miller has said internally that the child separations will bring the numbers down at the border, a goal that Trump wants to achieve.
