(National Sentinel)Â 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.
â€œI 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,â€ 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,Â but only if Democrats agreed to his terms.
â€œWe will make a long-term deal on immigration if, and only if, it is good for our country,â€ he said.
The White House revealed that Trump met with Senate Republicans to discuss â€œresponsibleâ€ immigration reform after the Senate voted to fund the government.
