Reports of a deal between Donald Trump and Democratic leaders to protect undocumented migrants who arrived in the USA as children have generated ripples of doubt among the president's supporters, some of whom were alarmed by Trump's statement on Thursday that "a wall will come later".
While White House officials have suggested legislation on DACA could move forward without wall funding, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders disputed the characterization that a deal had been reached to leave it out of any legislation focused on the Dreamers.
The Post reported that during the dinner, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross asked the 11 people at the table - including Pelosi, the only woman present - what President Donald Trump got out of the deal made with Democrats on border security and DACA.
By Thursday morning, the president wrote a series of tweets to try to explain where immigration pieces stand. "We have to work out details, and we can work together on a border security package with the White House and get DACA on the floor quickly". He also said his promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border would "come later".
When Trump made a decision to run for office, he said Mexicans were rapists and that they were bringing drugs to the United States.
These young people are not criminals, they did not enter the country illegally; they were brought by their parents, who came in search of a better life, in search of the American dream.
"Trump earlier Thursday questioned why people would want to force DACA recipients out of the country".

He further criticized what he called Qatar's "historic support" for terrorism and extremist factions. Moreover, Shoukry rejected Muraikhi's comments as "unacceptable" and "baseless insults".
King tweeted that Trump would blow up his base of conservative support and have no credibility, if the president takes what King considers a soft stance on immigration.
Thursday morning, he expressed sympathy for the immigrants on Twitter: "Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? To my knowledge, there's been no deal that's been struck between [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer, [House Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi and the president", Meadows said.
He said two weeks ago that he plans to end the program with a six-month trigger allowing Congress time to act. That flexibility has the chance of rubbing some of Trump's most conservative supporters the wrong way if they feel Trump is willing to compromise in order to mint a deal. He also never said he wants to end the program and never implement another version of it. "We're right now renovating large sections of wall".
I know that the same person who tried to tear down DACA is now the same one who appears to be in support of it, but if you are using rational thinking to try to understand anything this administration is doing, I would implore you to stop right now.
It appeared as though Trump's decision to end DACA was more of a legal formality, created to reverse former President Barack Obama's unilateral enactment of the program, than an effort to block young immigrants from a path to citizenship.
U.S. Rep. Bill Flores, R-Bryan, said he was optimistic a deal could be reached.
On the Hill, many Republicans were supportive.
