Trump to be 'special guest' during House GOP Immigration Conference

President Trump will be a "special guest" at a House GOP Member conference.

"I wouldn't sign the moderate bill. I need a bill that gives this country tremendous border security. I have to have that," Trump said.

A White House official said the president had misunderstood the question, and later the White House issued a statement to clear up the confusion.

“The President fully supports both the Goodlatte bill and the House leadership bill. In this morning's interview, he was commenting on the discharge petition in the House, and not the new package. He would sign either the Goodlatte or the leadership bill,” said White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah.

The House may take up an immigration bill next week although nothing is on the schedule yet.
