Trump denies Daca deal with Dems

Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer announce DACA agreement with Trump

The fate of 800,000 young illegal immigrants hung in the balance Thursday as top lawmakers, White House officials and President Donald Trump gave varying statements as to whether an agreement had been struck to protect them - and if so, exactly what it was.

"Really", Trump tweeted Thursday.

While claiming "my relationship with the Republicans is excellent" and insisting "many of them agree with what I'm doing", Trump also issued a warning.

While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to. People that were brought here.

On Thursday morning, the president - a former Democrat himself - and the minority leaders appeared largely aligned. So, we need border security and enforcement as part of any agreement.

We're not looking at citizenship. We are not looking at amnesty. Under the program, they were protected from deportation and allowed to legally work in the United States with two-year permits.

During the meeting the President reassured me that he does not want to wait six months for Congress to come up with a solution for our nation's young immigrants and that he is committed to supporting legislation on the House floor for DACA recipients.

"This is not what we voted for", conservative radio host Laura Ingraham said on her program. John Cornyn, a Republican, described it as "a deal to make a deal".

A caller from Arizona named Jody told Ingraham that she was suffering from PTSD - "Pelosi Trump Schumer Disorder".

They can not obstruct the wall.

"At this point, who DOESN'T want Trump impeached?" conservative commentator Ann Coulter remarked on Twitter. "I have little trust, honestly", she said.

But the White House disputed some details of the proposed deal. Do you know his position?

Schumer and Pelosi reiterated their opposition to the wall, and Democrats in the past have promised to block funding for it. How many Republicans could successfully campaign on a platform of "re-elect me, because I accomplished nothing and opposed the president"? Quickly, the president seemed to have second thoughts, tweeting and making offhand comments about his great "love" for dreamers while suggesting that if they get left out in the cold, it will be Congress' fault.

For his part, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement Thursday that he, too, had spoken with the president about DACA.

Before it was formally announced I kind of figured it was going to end either way. Back in Raleigh, Amada said she doesn't know who to believe.

"It's the beginning of a listening that the President asked us to do", McCarthy said. He didn't come here to do nothing. @POTUS needs to stay the course and keep his promises or it's over! He's a businessman, and that's what he's going to do. "We've already tasted victory with DACA, we've already come out of the shadows and I think many of us are not willing to go back", he said. "But to suggest that everything is done when the conversations have just started would not be accurate". Staunch Trump ally Sean Hannity added, "Weak R's have betrayed voters".

During the workshop, it was also discussed whether the success of the "DACA Dreamers" became their own enemy, and even a sense of racism against them.

They came to some kind of agreement involving border security and protections for Dreamers, and then Trump woke up today and chose to tweet that no deal was made, for some godforsaken reason.
