Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., on Wednesday said President Donald Trump "could move us forward" towards a compromise on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

On Tuesday, Trump held a public meeting at the White House with congressional leaders to discuss immigration, and his decision to end the program that provides protections for hundreds of thousands of people who came to the U.S. illegally as children.

Coons said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday that Trump "realized that that's the president he needs to be in order to be successful as president, and in order for the Republican Party to survive the 2018 elections," and that "if the president chooses to make this not just a one-day photo op, but to show real leadership here, he actually could move us forward by getting a resolution to the status of Dreamers, and new investment in border security."

The senator did warn that Republicans are one of the biggest obstacles for Dreamers, as those in the program are known, to live and work in this country, but that Trump is the right person to lead the GOP into a deal.

"This is the president, President Trump is the president who could get that done," Coons said.
