Trump All Set to Work with Democrats on Dreamer Deal

On Wednesday, Democratic leaders made it clear that they agreed with the president of the United States, Donald Trump to proceed with a legislative deal which would be protecting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who are undocumented from deportation and put into practice border security measures but not including the building of a physical wall. The president of the United States discussed this agenda during the dinner at the White House with Charles E Schumer, the Senate minority leader and Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader. During the discussion, some talk on the tax reforms, trade and infrastructure were also discussed. Donald Trump has shown signs of shifting his strategy for the crossing of the aisle and working with the Democrats. The reason behind this is because of the massive failures of the Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

On Thursday, while Donald Trump was leaving the White House for a visit to Florida for a survey of the damage caused by the killer hurricane, Irma he mentioned that they are working on a plan for DACA. Trump has also mentioned that he along with Congress is very close to a deal on DACA. The president also mentioned that Republican leaders Paul Ryan and Senator Mitch McConnell are almost ready with a deal that would be addressing DACA. Trump has made it clear that the deal would definitely include an efficient and effective border security force. This was in response to shouted questions about whether the president had reached a deal in the terms as was put forward by Schumer and Pelosi. At the same time, Trump also mentioned that the wall would be coming later which was an apparent conformation of a central element which was raised by the Democrats.

Previously on Thursday, when there was a lot of chaos from conservative supporters, Donald Trump had again sought on Thursday to reach out to his GOP base with the messages that are claiming that his agenda would remain as it is on the prime issue such as the issue of the border wall. In all the tweets from the president it was made clear that no deal was made on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program that was made during the time of previous US president Barack Obama which has allowed almost 690,000 dreamers to go to school and work without any kind of fear of deportation.
