WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump says that if Democrats won’t adopt his merit-based immigration plan, he’ll get it passed after the election.

Trump on Thursday unveiled his proposal in a Rose Garden news conference with little hard-line rhetoric. He says he wants to recruit the “most brilliant” people to live in the U.S. through a system that rewards talent and brains.

Trump is seeking to put a softer facade on the signature issue from his first campaign as he eyes a 2020 reelection. He said Thursday it was time to “restore national unity.”

He suggested the plan could get passed after the 2020 election if necessary because the House could flip back to the GOP.
