The United States is currently in a government shutdown, because Democrats won't vote for an appropriations bill without a deal on DACA, and President Trump won't agree to a deal on DACA without funding for the Wall (among other things). But NBC reporter Katie Hunt just tweeted this:
Chuck Schumer had an outline of a deal with the president after lunch on Friday. It included all the money the president asked for for the wall, around $20 billion. But hours later--the Kelly call came. The White House couldn't agree to what was on the table.
My question is, is this just Kasie Hunt's reporting, or did Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer publicly reveal that he offered President Trump a deal that included money for the border wall, and that President Trump turned it down?
I find it surprising that such a deal would be offered, and even more surprising that the deal would be turned down. But perhaps President Trump turned it down because he insisted on ending "chain migration" and the Diversity Visa Lottery Program.
