President Donald Trump and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer did not reach a deal on DACA during a Friday meeting. Trump And Schumer Fail To Reach A DACA Deal

“No deal was reached” in the meeting, a White House official told reporters.

Schumer said that he made “progress” with the president but they were unable to reach any official deal in the “long and detailed meeting.”

“We made some progress but we still have a good number of disagreements. The discussion will continue,” Schumer told reporters after leaving the meeting.

Trump and Schumer met amid a looming government shutdown, as Senate Democrats have refused to vote on a continuing resolution to fund the government unless it includes protections for DACA recipients. Republicans do not currently have the 60 votes necessary to pass the resolution.

The government will shut down at midnight if the funding bill does not pass.
