Disbelief, outrage and shrugs: How Trump's bipartisan immigration dinner shuffled the swamp


(CNN)Outside the House floor Thursday morning, conservatives were having a very hard time believing that President Donald Trump would undercut Republicans on immigration.

It was all over the news: Trump had sat down to dinner with Democratic congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. And over some Chinese food, Trump had agreed to a broad framework to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program recipients in exchange for border security, according to Democrats. The deal, one source familiar said, was to pair the DREAM Act with enhanced border protections. That did not include, however, Trump's marquee campaign promise of a border wall.
The White House pushed back on the Democrats' characterization of the meeting, but the fact is still that Trump has fundamentally shifted the contours of how he governs. After a campaign that began with accusing immigrants of being rapists and criminals, Trump was at the table talking immigration with Democrats.
"I find it hard to believe," said Virginia Republican David Brat. "I find it very hard to believe that he's going . 'whoops, I flipped 180 on the seminal issue of our campaign.'"
