Nancy Pelosi: Trump Hasn't Said He Won't Support DREAM Act

(CNN's "Nancy Pelosi Town Hall")

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that President Donald Trump has not told she and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer he did not support DREAM Act legislation for illegal immigrants.

"What we said when we came out of the room is that we have an agreement on the DREAM Act," the California Democrat told Chris Cuomo in a CNN town hall. "The president agreed to support the DREAM Act — and we would have to talk about the security part of it.

"And that was the agreement we had."

However, Pelosi and Schumer announced last month after a working dinner with Trump the president was supporting legislation for the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The Democrats said President Trump agreed to exclude his demand for a border wall from any DACA agreement.

The White House, however, disputed that claim — and Trump later declared "if we don't have a wall, we're doing nothing."

The week before, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Trump was giving Congress six months to find a permanent solution to DACA, which was enacted by former President Barack Obama in 2012 via executive order.

"The president should never have done what he did in terms of giving the six months, revoking and giving six months for us to pass a bill," Pelosi told Cuomo.

"He should never have done that," she added. "It was an inhumane thing to do."
