Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted President Trump's staff --particularly senior policy advisor Stephen Miller-- in an impromptu Sunday afternoon interview in a Senate hallway.
"Every time we have a proposal it is only yanked back by staff members," Graham said. "As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating immigration, we’re going nowhere."
"He’s been an outlier for years, there’s a deal to be had," he added. Miler, a former Sessions staffer who joined the Trump campaign in 2016 has long been a hardliner on immigration.
President Trump has expressed a desire to have border security with compassion on immigration. #winningcombination.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) January 21, 2018
General Kelly is tough but reasonable.
Some other staff in the White House hold extreme and unrealistic views.
They hold us back from getting a solution.
Graham also said that if a deal was going to be reached to end the government shutdown anytime soon, it will be reached tonight.
