Trump Denies He Made A Deal With Democrats On DREAMer Protections
It wasn't long before President Trump pushed back after leading Democrats said they struck a deal with the president Wednesday night to pass legislation that would protect the about 800,000 DREAMers who could face deportation when the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is scheduled to end in March.
"No deal was made last night on DACA," he tweeted Thursday morning. "Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote."
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had also said they would work on legislation with the president to fund security on the U.S. border with Mexico that excludes Trump's longtime promise of a wall between the countries — though the White House initially disputed the recounting of that portion of the meeting. . .
