Trump: "The wall will come later"
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer issued a joint statement responding to President Trump's morning tweets surrounding DACA, agreeing that there was "no final deal" but rather general agreement on the following terms:
- Trump will encourage the House and Senate to enshrine protections granted by DACA into law.
- There will be a bipartisan border security package that still needs to be negotiated — but it will not include the wall, which Trump plans to continue to advocate at a later date.
Confirmation from POTUS: Leaving the White House for Florida this morning, Trump told the pool that "the wall will come later," adding that a deal is "fairly close" with Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell both on board, but both sides have to "get past the border security."
