Trump canceled earlier this month, a White house meeting with Pelosi and Schumer on the end-of-year legislation, suggesting that they had determined that the extension of the so-called “DACA” included protection.

Jones, a former Federal Prosecutor in Alabama said on Sunday, the trump called to congratulate him on his victory over Republican Roy Moore, the Trump secured, and whose campaign was derailed by allegations of past sexual misconduct.

“You say a lot of things said during the heat of the campaign,” Jones. “His reputation was very well for me. I am looking forward to meeting with him.”

“There is always the possibility to find common ground,” Jones said. “I hope that it will find a message to Democrats and Republicans a common Basis.”

He declined to say how he would vote on the GOP-controlled Congress ” tax-reform plan, if the Republicans waited until he submitted to the sat at the beginning of January to cast a final vote.

“It’s a 500-page bill that just landed on the read just the other day,” Jones tables said, with the Capitol Hill vote expected this week. “So I didn’t even consider a real chance, and to examine. … This is one of my biggest concerns, how things are up there.”

“But my biggest concern is the process and that it is going to increase the deficit by over a trillion dollars,” he said. “I don’ T buy in fact, it will help the economy grow.”

Jones also suggests that Moore should stop any conflict with the outcome of the race.

“I think it’s time to move,” Jones said. “I think he’s hurting the people in Alabama.”

Jones said that he has already made it clear that he will not build against a wall, “because I do not believe that the taxpayers incur a cost.”

But he refused to say whether he votes for the funding of the wall, in exchange for the extension of DACA protection.

“The shakes see how,” he said. To speak “it is difficult hypotheticals. … I leave all options on the table.”
