From the Chicago Sun Times:President Donald Trump on Thursday disputed top Democrats’ account of a meeting at the White House the night before, tweeting that no agreement had been reached on protecting young immigrants.
Trump tweeted early Thursday, however: “No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.”
He added in a second Tweet: “The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, will continue to be built.”
Though he also followed that with more conciliatory language on the people that a deal would help: “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!…..
“…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”
The top House and Senate Democrats had said Wednesday they had reached agreement with Trump to protect thousands of younger immigrants from deportation and fund some border security enhancements — not including Trump’s long-sought border wall.
The agreement, the latest instance of Trump ditching his own party to make common cause with the opposition, was announced by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi following a White House dinner that Republican lawmakers weren’t invited to attend. It would enshrine protections for the nearly 800,000 immigrants brought illegally to this country as kids who had benefited from former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, which provided temporary work permits and shielded recipients from deportation.
I knowRepublicans are pissed at Trump for meeting with senile Pelosi and evil Chucky but they have only themselves to blame because they are a do nothing Congress.
As far as who is telling the truth? Trump, Pelosi and Chuck you are liars but Chunky and Pelosi are just vile and mean people without a conscious or soul. My bet would be that Trump’s version is more accurate. Update: Yep, Chucky and Senile Pelosi have changed their story...in otherwords, they lied.
