Claiming to have struck a deal with a Democrats, Senator Graham will betray Trump voters and make GOP chances in 2018 much worse.

Lindsey Graham will deny that he wants to betray Trump voters, but there is no denying that he is doing so. Cutting a deal with Democrat Senator Dick Durbin that simultaneously cuts out President Trump, Graham tries to make his actions acceptable by portraying Trump as irrational and hateful, when in fact Trump is simply trying to keep a reasonable number of promises he made to voters.

The Washington Times reports, “Senators to pursue immigration deal over Trump’s objections.

The two senators who struck a deal with each other on an immigration deal signaled Friday they’ll push ahead with their bargain despite opposition from President Trump, saying they sense growing bipartisan support.

[…]

Mr. Graham, in a statement Friday, said he “said my piece directly” to the president on Thursday, and is now turning back to the deal itself.

“The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it,” he said.

“I know the bipartisan proposal discussed at the White House can get a lot of support from both sides. As always, I look forward to considering additional ideas that could make the proposal even better,” Mr. Graham said.
