Trump and his top advisers sat down Tuesday with 25 members of Congress, 16 senators and nine representatives, 15 Republicans and 10 Democrats. And in an unusual move, the White House opened nearly an hour of the meeting to the press.

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer heaped praise on President Trump and his administration for opening up an immigration reform meeting with lawmakers to the press Tuesday. Blitzer, speaking with his colleague Jim Acosta, conceded he had to give Trump “a lot of credit” for allowing press cameras to cover a nearly hourlong discussion during a “really remarkable meeting” with Republicans and Democrats.
