A spokeswoman says President Donald Trump "does not support amnesty," but may be open to a pathway to citizenship for some people living in the country illegally.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters tells reporters traveling with the president to Florida that "the Trump administration will not be discussing amnesty."

But she says the president wants "a responsible path forward" on immigration reform that "could include legal citizenship over a period of time." She later said that is just one possible example of what Congress might do.

Walters is also repeating the president's assertion that "no deal" was made on protections for young immigrants during a dinner Wednesday night between the president and Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

She says they had "a constructive conversation," but "there was no deal made."
