President Donald Trump has put together the "best deal' on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel said Tuesday, but Democrats continue to refuse to accept it.

"They don't want to be bipartisan," McDaniel told Fox News "America's Newsroom" host Bill Hemmer. "They don't want to give the president a win even if it's on something they campaigned on. They're always making the political calculation and not thinking about the people they claim to represent."

Under Trump's plan, 1.8 million DACA representatives are being offered a pathway to citizenship, said McDaniel, but the president wants to eliminate chain migration and the Visa lottery, while focusing on merit-based immigration.

The president is planning a trip to California's border with Mexico to examine the early versions of the border wall he promised during his 2016 presidential campaign, and McDaniel said his visit also will help with the numerous congressional races coming into play during this year's midterm elections.

"I think the president is focused on keeping his majorities in Congress and helping those candidates, and also keeping a campaign promise," said McDaniel.

Democrats, though, have been the party of "no" every step of the way with Trump, including rejecting tax cut legislation, the DACA matter and more.

"The American people will look at their accomplishment column in November and say they've done absolutely nothing and Republicans are making our country better," she said. "Democrats would be better served working with this president."

Such opposition is unifying the Democrats, but that happens when a party that is not in power wants to get its majority back, said McDaniel.

"They also are doubling down on policies that have fractured their party and putting their thumb on the scale in races across the country," said McDaniel. "Look what they did to Dianne Feinstein in California this past weekend. "Dianne Feinstein, a standard bearer, for the Democratic Party is now too conservative for them. That's how far left their party is going and they aren't hiding the fact that they will put a litmus test out there and put their thumb on the scale and determine which candidates they want and not let the voters decide."
