The White House on Thursday said “there will be no amnesty” under President Trump, pushing back against charges he's become “Amnesty Don” in his push to address young immigrants living illegally in the U.S.
“As we have said in the past, there will be no amnesty,” White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters told reporters aboard Air Force One. “Absolutely by no means will this White House discuss amnesty and the president has made it clear how he feels about no amnesty.”
Trump has riled his base with his effort to strike a deal with Democrats to address immigrants benefitting from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which he terminated last week.
Breitbart News used the headline "Amnesty Don” on a story slamming the president for working with Democrats on immigration, and the moniker was trending in Washington, D.C., early Thursday.
