DEALMAKER?

Trump: ‘No Deal Was Made Last Night on DACA’

President Trump tweeted early Thursday that “no deal was made last night on DACA,” the morning after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi declared they reached a tentative pact with him to pursue to a legislative fix on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In a joint statement late Wednesday following their dinner at the White House, Schumer and Pelosi said the trio “agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides.” But in a pre-dawn tweet, Trump wrote “Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote” and said his border wall with Mexico “would be built.” A Democratic aide told The Daily Beast late Wednesday that Trump “was clear he would continue to fight for the wall separate from this agreement.” However, Trump’s tweets seemed to indicate support of details of the reported agreement on DACA, tweeting “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!” and “They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own—brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security.”
