RNC Chair Reince Priebus said President Barack Obama’s forthcoming executive amnesty would be a “nuclear threat” that shows he has no intentions of working with Congress.
Speaking at the Christian Science Monitor breakfast on Friday, Priebus reportedly said the president would also be “throwing kerosene on the fire.”
“What essentially he is telling the American people is that he doesn’t give a darn about Republicans and Democrats working together,” he said, according to a Time report.
Earlier in the week, Priebus said he thought “serious immigration reform” was “still alive” after the midterms. But the RNC Chair has always been against Obama’s unilateral amnesty.
Priebus told Breitbart News before the midterm elections to rally conservatives:
While I can’t speak for the legislature, I’m very confident we will stop that. We will do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t happen: Defunding, going to court, injunction. You name it. It’s wrong. It’s illegal. And for so many reasons, and just the basic fabric of this country, we can’t allow it to happen and we won’t let it happen. I don’t know how to be any stronger than that. I’m telling you, everything we can do to stop it we will.
