President Donald Trump met last night with Democratic leaders to discuss DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

After having dinner with the President last night, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced a surprise deal that included protections for DACA recipients and increased border protections, but not a wall.

Less than 12 hours later, President Trump sent out a series of tweets denying the deal.
