Rep. Kelly: Trump Acting Like 'American President,' Not GOP or Dem

"We're looking at allowing people to stay here", he said. "If we don't have the wall, we're doing nothing". He also said that his proposed wall on the southern border would proceed but "come later".

Some conservative lawmakers see the president's compromise as a betrayal. "And I think that he is the sort of person who allows folks to leave meetings with him believing that he agrees wholeheartedly with their position when that might not necessarily be true".

The president denied their statement in a tweet Thursday morning saying, "No deal was made last night on DACA".

To be honest, this administration is so sexist that I'm frankly sort of surprised that line worked at all.

Wednesday, the Democratic leaders announced their deal with Trump would make DACA's protections of young immigrants permanent - a deal that excludes building the wall.

And as he often has, Trump completely contradicted his spokesman on this in a matter of hours.

DACA is a temporary immigration benefit granted to some undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children. "And I think something could happen, we'll see what happens but something will happen".

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 04: Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) (C) is joined by fellow Democrats from both the House and Senate, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) (R) following a meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama at the U.S. Capitol January 4, 2017 in Washington, DC. There isn't an agreement.

"You cannot fix DACA without fixing the root cause of our problem". Trump gave Congress six months to come up with a solution before protections for Dreamers like Amado would end.

"But I also believe that you have to consider the President's career and his position", he tells OneNewsNow. Amado's parents brought her to Johnston County when she was 2 1/2 years old. "There's an opportunity here for everyone to finally get what they want". "It's the same concept for our country as well".

The former Trump supporters say they are angered by Trump's possible immigration deal with Democratic leaders, reports HuffPost.

Trump gave Congress six months to act in legalizing the program and reforming the country's immigration system. "And it'll make us more productive, too". "It was a discussion, not an agreement or a negotiation", he said. That's not what we want so I'm frustrated.

Immigration advocates say while they're hopeful a DACA deal could happen, comprehensive immigration reform should be the long-term goal.
