(National Sentinel) Moving On: President Donald J. Trump praised Democrats for voting in favor of a three-week government funding extension to reopen a shuttered federal government, but warned that no “Dreamers” deal would be made unless it benefitted the country.
“I am pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses and are now willing to fund our great military, border patrol, first responders, and insurance for vulnerable children,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.
He added that he would continue working with lawmakers on an immigration reform measure that dealt with so-called DACA recipients, but only if Democrats agreed to his terms.
“We will make a long-term deal on immigration if, and only if, it is good for our country,” he said.
The White House revealed that Trump met with Senate Republicans to discuss “responsible” immigration reform after the Senate voted to fund the government.
