White House says Congress not 'smart enough' to assess Trump tax returns

He also accused President Donald Trump of having "manufactured chaos" at the border with his immigration policies.

"We're never going to change this with troops and walls at the border", Graham said of the USA immigration crisis.

In the safer confines of Fox News, Sanders also had snide insults of Congress lined up, defending administration efforts to defy both Congress and the law with an assertion that she didn't think "this group of congressmen and women are smart enough to look through the thousands of pages" of Trump's still-hidden taxes even if they got them. "We hereby demand that they be taken care of at the highest level, especially by the State of California, which is well known or its poor management & high taxes!"

"This just shows the President's contempt for law, another instance of the President's contempt for law", Nadler said on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper.

And if you want to know how long Sanders' instance that President Racist was most certainly not trying to "go around" American laws would last, the answer is: Exactly one question. Obviously, given the importance of this issue we have people working on this diligently.

But Trump seemed ready to step up his fight with the cities, vowing to "give them an unlimited supply" of immigrants from the border.

"With immigrants being less likely to commit crimes than the US -born population, and with sanctuary jurisdictions being safer and more productive than non-sanctuary jurisdictions, the data damns this proposal as a politically motivated stunt that seeks to play politics with peoples' lives", said George Gascon, district attorney for San Francisco.

"This was just a suggestion that was floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion", the White House statement said in response to the story.

"I stand undeterred to continue fighting for equal opportunity in our pursuit of happiness for all Americans".

"Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very risky immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only", Trump tweeted Friday.

Schaaf responded to President Donald Trump's tweet that noted it's "so interesting to see the Mayor of Oakland and other Sanctuary Cities NOT WANT our now "detained immigrants" after release due to the ridiculous court ordered 20 day rule". Whether or not it moves forward, that is yet to be determined.

"I am aware that concerns have been raised regarding my request and the authority of the Committee", House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal said in a letter to Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Charles Rettig after an initial April 10 deadline lapsed.

"Well we're looking to see if there are options that make it possible, and doing a full and thorough and extensive review".

Several Republicans have tried to navigate around Trump's illegal "sanctuary city" suggestion, including one of his most staunch defenders, New York Republican Peter King.

Democrats must change the Immigration Laws FAST.

Schaaf appeared on CNN and NPR's "Weekend Edition" to condemn the president's proposal, saying she was "proud to be the mayor of a sanctuary city". Trump then said on Friday he was still considering the idea. They create businesses and jobs.
