Steve King blasts Trump on immigration in series of tweets

Pelosi, top White House official open on border security

Leaving the White House by helicopter, he told reporters Thursday that "we're working on a plan" for the high-profile Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme, which his administration has vowed to scrap.

A person briefed on the Wednesday night meeting, who spoke on condition anonymity about the private get-together, said the deal had centered on bipartisan legislation that would provide eventual citizenship for the young immigrants. That part is already moving forward.

Also on Thursday, White House Spokeswoman Lindsay Walters repeated the president's assertion that "no deal" was made on protections for young immigrants during a dinner Wednesday night between the president and Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

The wall will come later, we're right now renovating large sections of wall, massive sections, making it brand new. Ultimately, we have to have the wall.

The dinner was the latest effort in a new initiative by Trump to work with opposition party Democrats on major legislation.

Trump did not appear to be facing a fully-fledged mutiny, yet, over his seeming willingness to put the border wall project on the back burner.

At the Christian Science Monitor event earlier, Short said the president remained committed to construction of a border wall, but not necessarily directly linked to the "Dreamers" issue.

Traveling to Florida Thursday, he tried to reassure his base he hadn't given up.

"In doing so, we will not only be protecting the Dreamers, we will be protecting the integrity of the country", she said, thanking the Dreamers at the conference for their patriotism. Republicans broadly favor more stringent border security. But some conservatives accused the president of selling out. "The president engaged, but I don't know that we've seen the president's plan".

Television network HBO saluted Vincent on its Twitter account , saying, "Our family will never forget the Leotardo Legacy". Frank Vincent , whose portrayal of NY mob boss Phil Leotardo made him a mainstay on HBO's The Sopranos , has died .

"He likes us! He likes me, anyway", Schumer said.

Ann Coulter, a Republican analyst who wrote a book titled "In Trump We Trust", fumed at Trump's possible deal with Democrats.

Ryan, meanwhile, was adamant after speaking with Trump and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly that no agreement had been reached. "It was a discussion, not an agreement or negotiation". "I appreciate them putting out that statement".

Barletta didn't criticize the president for seeming to bypass his own party and reaching out to the minority party on the contentious issue of immigration and what to do with the 800,000 people who will be affected when DACA expires in six month as Trump has directed.

The parties are due back in court September 26.

"Dreamers" should be encouraged that everyone is talking about this and leaders on both sides, Cordes reports.

Other Republicans or Independents who have discussed the possibility of a Trump impeachment include Representative Justin Amash (R-Mich.), Representative Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) and Senator Angus King (I-ME). He also said he is insisting on "massive border security" as part of any agreement. "A lot of people want this to happen, they expect it to happen and we'll see if it happens". Bob Casey and other Democrats to simply enact guarantees to let DACA recipients to stay.

The Customs and Border Patrol last month awarded contracts to four companies to build potential wall prototypes.
