President Donald Trump on Thursday said he was "fairly close" to a deal with congressional leaders to preserve protections for young immigrants living illegally in America but he's insisting on "massive border security" as part of any agreement.

Trump, speaking to reporters before surveying hurricane damage in Florida, said, "If we don't have a wall, we're doing nothing. At some point, they're going to have to – they cannot obstruct the wall. The wall to me is vital. If I don't get the wall, then we will become the obstructionists," Trump said.

He also said his promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border would "come later."

"We're working on a plan subject to getting massive border controls. We're working on a plan for DACA. People want to see that happen," Trump said. He added: "'I think we're fairly close but we have to get massive border security."
