After spending months grandstanding in support of recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, President Trump offered Democrats a deal: Support funding for a wall on the border, and he’ll protect so-called “Dreamers.”
Democrats refused to take care of DACA. Would have been so easy, but they just didn’t care. I had to fight for Military and start of Wall.

Democrats had the chance to cut that deal with the omnibus spending bill, but instead chose to sell out “Dreamers” for nothing more than political points. In the omnibus spending bill that is on its way to the U.S. Senate, the funding for the wall was virtually non-existent.
There was a chance for a deal, but Democrats chose not to take it.
