Trump Blasts Bipartisan DACA Proposal as 'Big Step Backwards'

Trump Blasts Bipartisan DACA Proposal as 'Big Step Backwards'

Friday, 12 January 2018 07:32 AM EST

President Donald Trump on Friday rejected a bipartisan "Dreamer" immigration plan proposed by a group of U.S. senators, saying it did not properly fund his long-touted wall along the southern border with Mexico while calling it "a step backward."

Under the proposal, the United States "would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly," Trump added. 

The president reiterated his call for a merit-based immigration system.

It was during Thursday's meeting that Trump reportedly made his remarks about "sh**hole countries" like Africa and Haiti, a comment that has boomeranged around the world, drawing support from his base and scorn from the rest.

But Trump seemed to suggest he didn't make the comment.
