President Donald Trump claimed that Republicans are on the side of DACA recipients in a White House press conference Friday.
Trump also said the Democrats are “using you for their own purposes.”
“I can tell you this, and I say this to DACA recipients — that the Republicans are with you,” Trump said. “They want to get your situation taken care of. The Democrats fought us, they just fought every single inch of the way. They did not want DACA in this bill. And, as you know, DACA is also tied to the wall — for the major funding, the $25 billion for wall and other things.”
“So I think that will be coming up very soon. But I do want the Hispanic community to know and DACA recipients to know that Republicans are much more on your side than the Democrats, who are using you for their own purposes.”
“With that being said, I just want to thank everybody for being here. We are very proud of many of the items that we have been able to get.”
President Trump announced that he has signed the omnibus bill to fund the government Friday, but also said that he would not sign another bill like it again.
