In their evening meeting, Trump and House Republicans were expected to discuss two bills scheduled for votes on Thursday.
"I don't want children taken away from parents".
"I think there's a real interest in trying to find some common ground and whatever we do, we want to be able to do it on a bipartisan basis so it could move fairly quickly", Rounds said.
