NOT GOOD! Sen. Joe Manchin Claims Trump Open to Immigration Bill Similar to GANG OF EIGHT

President Trump told a bipartisan group of senators during a private White House meeting Thursday that he would consider reviewing a bipartisan, comprehensive immigration bill like the one that the Senate passed in 2013 that provides a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already living in the United States, according to a Democratic senator.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who attended the Thursday afternoon meeting with Trump, told NBC News that Trump is "open to reviewing" the controversial bill. However, Trump also made it clear that he is "totally opposed" to amnesty, which is how many Republicans described the bill.
A spokesman for Manchin initially indicated that Manchin was open to the specific "Gang of Eight" bill that drew strong opposition from House Republicans. But Manchin's comments to NBC didn't go that far.
