Trump expresses support for DACA protections after dinner with Schumer, Pelosi
After his Wednesday night dinner with Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and nine others in the White House Blue Room, in which Democratic aides reported that the president had come to an agreement “to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall,” according to a joint Schumer-Pelosi statement, President Trump took to Twitter on Thursday morning to let his constituents — some of which are reportedly upset — that he is not a cuck.
Trump then claims a wall is “under construction” if you look hard enough at the “fences and walls” being built.
Then comes the sympathy card to his supporters, who’re pretty much like the bad guy from “Cobra” only they don’t exercise.
The White House, in a statement on Wednesday night, said the negotiations with Schumer and Pelosi were “a positive step toward the president’s strong commitment to bipartisan solutions for the issues most important to all Americans.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said earlier Wednesday that Trump was “committed to the wall. It doesn’t have to be tied to DACA but its important and he will get it done.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan, who also sat down with Pelosi to talk immigration Wednesday, said during an AP Newsmaker interview that deporting the so-called “Dreamers” was “not in our nation’s interest,” and said the president had “made the right call.”
“I wanted him to give us time. I didn’t want this to be rescinded on Day One and create chaos,” Ryan said, arguing the time would allow Congress to “come up with the right kind of consensus and compromise to fix this problem.”
