Trump changes tune about Mexico-US border wall

"There are open channels", Kelly said. And a straight, straight shooter.

And Trump complained that he felt like the chief of staff had portrayed him as a child who had to be managed, a charge that particularly irks the president in the wake of the way he was portrayed in the recent Michael Wolff book, "Fire and Fury". Throughout the evening on Wednesday, Trump fielded calls from allies who described Kelly's comments to Congress as undermining the president, stoking Trump's fury. He added that in return for protecting the young immigrants, "what they want in return is continuously a moving target and it continuously expands".

And in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday night, Kelly didn't deny saying those things. Trump's rejection angered the bargainers, and partisan feelings worsened after participants in a White House meeting last week said Trump had referred to African nations as "shitholes".

On Saturday, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that current DACA recipients can again apply for two-year renewals after a federal judge in San Francisco temporarily blocked the Trump administration from phasing out the program.

"You can not say anymore that the United States is going to pay for the wall", Trump told Nieto. The House is expected to consider the measure Thursday. "I think he's never closed a deal before politically", said Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham and Democratic Sen.

"His sense was, two things". "There were a number of other senators that had been involved in this from the beginning. that were not consulted". It's even unclear whether GOP leaders have nailed down enough votes to prevail in the House, where conservatives and strong boosters of the Pentagon have been unhappy.

The chief of staff's first remarks came at a closed-door meeting with the Hispanic congressional caucus over at Capitol Hill. The caucus said the talks were "positive,"however, a concrete agreement wasn't reached, Politico reported".

Also, the chief of staff said the government was focussing on the situation of Dreamers - undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children - whose protection from deportation lapses in March, unless Congress can reinstate it through a legislation that is the subject of intense debate and negotiations.

Another group of high-level lawmakers has also started talks aimed at brokering an immigration deal, adding an additional level of uncertainty. Kelly didn't apologize, but acknowledged the term is disputed, according to a source in the room.

US President Donald Trump on Thursday insisted that Mexico will pay "directly or indirectly" for the border wall. He's taken more of a personal role in meetings with aides and lawmakers, where his deeply held views have been apparent, according to people who have participated in them. It has protected around 800,000 young immigrants from deportation.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal last week, the president said "the wall's never meant to be 2,100 miles long. you don't need a wall where you have a natural barrier that's far greater than any wall you could build".

Trump fumed at Kelly privately and chided his chief of staff over his remarks. Outsiders also viewed him as a potentially moderating force on a President whose brash outbursts and appeals to nationalist sentiments had alienated some voters and establishment politicians. "But what we can not have is a unprotected, unsecured southwest border that five, six, seven years from now, we have another group of 600 or 700,000 DACA people".

This is no surprise to those of us who always knew and said that Trump's promises on these counts were absurd and would never come to pass.

Injecting confusion into already perilous shutdown negotiations, President Donald Trump undercut his own administration's stance by tweeting Thursday that a children's health insurance program should not be part of a short-term budget agreement.
