“Staunch conservative allies of President Trump have erupted in anger and incredulity after Democrats late Wednesday announced that the president had agreed to pursue a legislative deal that would protect thousands of young undocumented immigrants from deportation but not secure Trump’s signature campaign promise: building a massive wall along the U.S.-Mexico border,” The Washington Post reports.
“‘At this point, who DOESN’T want Trump impeached?’ Ann Coulter tweeted on Thursday morning.”
“While the initial wave of fury could change direction as new details emerge, the torrent represented the first major break of Trump’s devoted base from the president on a core issue.”
“Aides to Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) asserted that Trump had agreed not to request wall funding as part of their pact to soon move legislation to help undocumented immigrants who are protected under the executive order.”
“As he departed the White House on Thursday…Trump told reporters that ‘the wall will come later … The wall is going to be built, it’ll be funded a little bit later.'”
