"It's supposed to be negotiated," Trump said of federal law. "You're supposed to cajole, get people in a room. You're supposed to deal with them. You have Republicans. You have Democrats. You have all these people — they get elected to do this stuff. And you're supposed to get together and pass a law."

"He doesn't want to do that because it's too much work," Trump added. "He doesn't want to work too hard. He wants to go back and play golf. You try and get it done ... He's been away for two weeks playing golf, OK? He's not exactly trying very hard to get it done."
