On Tuesday, Democrats withdrew an offer to fund U.S. President Donald Trump’s border wall. Illinois Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said, “He (Schumer) did it in the context of a negotiation.”
Those negotiations concern the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which covers illegal immigrants known as “Dreamers.”
The day after the end of a government shutdown, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said he pulled the offer because of Trump’s failure to follow through on an agreement the two men discussed Friday.
So we’re going to have to start on a new basis and the wall offer is off the table.”
Trump reacted on Twitter late Tuesday night.
Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA. We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!
