Trump: DACA is ‘Probably Dead’

President Trump cast doubt on the possibility of a DACA deal passing anytime soon with a tweet Sunday, saying the program is “probably dead.”

The firestorm over the president’s description of third-world countries as “shitholes” has energized Democratic demands for a ‘clean’ DACA bill, which would disregard all GOP demands.

Trump expressed frustration with the negotiations in a tweet:
