Trump backed the effort that failed while it was still in the planning stages when it became clear that Republicans in the upper chamber did not have the votes to force through a bill.
The South Carolina senator's legislation helping Dreamers, a bipartisan bill he crafted with Illinois Dem.
The president has been accused of cheating regularly in golf in the past, and earlier this year, Sports Illustrated reporter Alan Shipnuck said he kicks the ball along the course to get it into a better shooting position.
Shipnuck also said that Trump frequently takes mulligans and gimme puts, sparking a Salon article headlined 'Commander in cheat.' Others compared Trump to former North Korea leader Kim Jong-il, who once claimed to have shot a 34 on an 18-hole course - a feat which is most certainly impossible.
Immigration was among the topics he discussed with Graham today, the White House says.
Graham has had his ups and downs with Trump, having condemned the president's response to the Charlottesville race riot in August.
It distributed a readout on the golf trip to press, though, that said, 'The President and Senator Graham discussed our legislative priorities including immigration, tax reform, government funding and health care.'We have a very aggressive fall agenda, and will continue meeting and working with members of congress to get things accomplished.'Graham's tweet after the game didn't shed as much light on their discussions.
Graham has said that Trump was 'right to terminate' to terminate DACA because it was an example of executive overreach in the last administration.'I think he could be a good spokesman for this compromise of border security plus the Dream Act,' Graham said at the time.
'The other views had their fair day in the democratic process, and the American people voted for the reforms outlined in this package,' the official said, referring to the legislation that Graham and a group of seven other senators sponsored in Senate in 2013.Dick Durbin, would give qualifying illegal immigrants lawful permanent residence status and put them on a pathway to American citizenship.It goes further than the White House is willing to go on that issue.This proposal fails to represent any attempt at compromise.'The list includes the wall, which was explicitly ruled out of the negotiations.If the President was serious about protecting the Dreamers, his staff has not made a good faith effort to do so.'The White House was quiet on Monday as the president and his staff celebrated Columbus Day.A senior official told reporters Sunday on a call tied to Trump's immigration roll out: 'I think that as we look to legalize the status of DACA recipients, we are not interested in granting citizenship.' The president has been accused of regularly cheating while playing golf in the past, and earlier this year Sports Illustrated reporter Alan Shinuck said he kicks the ball along the course to get it into a better shooting position The president sent lawmakers a long list of policies and principles he expects immigration reform to adhere by on Sunday evening.In a letter to lawmakers, Trump said, 'our porous southern border presents a clear threat to our national security and public safety.' 'The Administration therefore proposes completing construction of a wall along the southern border of the United States,' Trump said, asking legislators not only to ensure the project is funded, but to authorize the Department of Homeland Security to raise, collect and process 'fees from immigration benefit applications and border crossings' the help pay for the wall.Not long after, Graham boasted about the president's score, and his own terrible golf game, on Twitter.'Really enjoyed a round of golf with President @real Donald Trump today.President Trump shot a 73 in wet and windy conditions,' he tweeted enthusiastically.Graham is a co-author of the Senate's Dream Act, legislation that would grant illegal immigrants who came the US as children lawful status, and he was one of four Republican senators who hammered out a bipartisan immigration agreement with Democrats that stalled in the last administration.Trump is trying to hash out a deal now with lawmakers in the upper chamber to overhaul the immigration system and provide funding for his border wall as part and parcel to legislation that protects Dreamers.
