President Trump said Thursday that he is “fairly close” to a deal with lawmakers to address young immigrants living illegally in the United States in exchange for a “massive” overhaul of border security.
“We’re working on a plan – subject to getting massive border controls,” the President told reporters before leaving for Florida.
“We’re working on a plan for DACA,” he added. “People want to see that happen.”
Trump also suggested he has not given up completely on his key campaign promise of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“The wall will come later,” he said. “We’re right now renovating large sections of wall, massive sections, making it brand new.”
News broke Wednesday evening that the President was close to striking a deal with Democrats to fix DACA, and avoid the border wall.
