Donald Trump continues to shake up Washington.
Trump was recently hosting 23 Democrats and Republicans at the White House to discuss immigration.
And it was during this meeting that Trump looked right into the cameras and said the one thing Chuck Schumer feared.
After Trump ended Obama’s illegal DACA amnesty program, Trump said he was willing to work out a legislative fix as long as it included his pro-American reforms.
Those included an end to chain migration, halting the diversity visa lottery program, and funding the border wall.
But Chuck Schumer and the Democrats are trying to stick the DACA fix in the January government funding bill by refusing all of Trump’s requests.
So everyone was expecting Trump to cave.
Trump – however – did the unexpected.
He told the press – who filmed the meeting for 55 minutes – that the wall must be part of any deal.
Extraordinary event at the WH: The president invited the press pool into his meeting with congressional leaders on DACA. We stayed in the meeting for nearly one hour. Lots of talk of bipartisanship but the president also made it clear the wall must be part of any agreement pic.twitter.com/pc3iH5N8Ec

Sanders cites four essentials for immigration bill Pres would sign: border security (wall), elimination of chain migration and visa lottery, and DACA reauthorization. Pres feels today's meeting "very productive." pic.twitter.com/2phyKFNXhq

And to drive the point home, he reiterated his insistence that there will be no agreement without the wall.
As I made very clear today, our country needs the security of the Wall on the Southern Border, which must be part of any DACA approval.

Do you believe Trump will deal Chuck Schumer a massive defeat by securing funding for the border wall?
