Trump Says Wall Position Has Never Changed, Despite Kelly Interview

Ryan calls out Schumer on 2013 shutdown remarks

More recently, he has prevailed upon Trump not to dwell on the idea of Mexico paying for the wall, a notion that the president has not mentioned for some time. Democrats have been pushing for a solution for the, which protected young undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children and which President Donald Trump is ending, before they vote for government funding.

"Certain things are said during the campaign that are uninformed", Kelly told the publication.

Mr. Kelly told lawmakers that "he was the one who tempered" Mr. Trump "on the issue of the wall, on the issue of DACA", said Representative Raúl Grijalva, Democrat of Arizona, who attended the session...

During a conversation with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto held just days after his inauguration, Trump characterized the wall as "the least important thing that we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important [thing we] talk about".

Speaking to Fox News's Bret Baier Wednesday, Kelly said that some of Trump's hard-line immigration positions were the result of not being "fully informed".

In a bid to assure the group that he understands their concerns, Kelly said Hispanic Caucus members should be grateful that DACA wasn't ended immediately in September, when Trump set a six-month expiration date for the program, according to several people familiar with his remarks.

"It's an absolute mess, the White House".

The Republicans fighting to strike a stopgap deal to fund the government and the Democrats want to include protection for the Dreamers in the Bill.

Trump's rejection of a possible deal last week angered the bargainers, and partisan feelings worsened after participants in a White House meeting last week claimed Trump had referred to African nations as "shitholes".

"He's not yet indicated what measure he's willing to sign", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters on Wednesday.

They could be deported if they do not have legal protection.

Two moments in the Kelly meeting that were more emotional than the rest of the cordial conversation, a source in the room said. Rather, it was simply a campaign pledge that Trump and his advisors had come to see differently following the election.

Some lawmakers who met with Kelly on Wednesday recounted his remarks.

He said that the president has evolved in his thinking on the wall. "As I understand it, they have the votes and they are fairly confident".

While Trump is now demanding that American taxpayers pony up $20 billion for his wall, one of his signature campaign promises was that he'd in fact force Mexico to pay for it. Supporters at his rallies often chanted, "Build that wall".

"The Wall is "peanuts" compared to what Mexico makes from the USA", he added.

Kelly added that there are places where "fencing" would suffice.

The hope had been that Congress would have reached a deal on immigration by now.
