The President addressed the media Friday shortly after signing a much-maligned $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package into law; directly addressing the ‘Dreamers’ and saying Republicans -not Democrats- are on their side.
“I can tell you this, and I say this to DACA-recipients: The Republicans are with you, they want to get your situation taken care of. The Democrats fought this every single inch of the way. They did not want DACA in this bill,” said the President after signing the proposal.
“As you know, DACA is often tied to the wall, the $25 billion for the wall and for other things. So, that will be coming up very soon,” he added.
“But I want the Hispanic community to know, I want the DACA-recipients to know, that Republicans are much more on your side than the Democrats who are using you for their own purposes,” said the Commander-in-Chief.

GLOVES OFF: Trump HAMMERS 'Out of Touch' Democrats in FIERY SPEECH
President Trump struck back against liberal legislators and vulnerable Democrats during a fiery speech Tuesday night, saying Republicans are in great shape heading into the 2018 midterms because Democrats have “lost touch” with normal Americans.
“We will keep fighting for the change the American people want and they deserve. The Democrats think they’re invincible,” said Trump while speaking at the National Republican Congressional Committee dinner.
“Have you ever seen Maxine Waters? A low-IQ individual […] This is what we’re going to have to fight against,” he added. “The truth is the Democrats have never been more vulnerable because they’ve lost touch with normal, everyday working people.”
“Democrats still think the loyal citizens who care about jobs and borders and security are deplorable,” said the President.

GREAT IDEA: Oakland Mayor Says She’ll FACE PRISON Before Caving on ‘Sanctuary City’
The left-wing mayor of Oakland, California vowed she’d go to prison before she caved to federal authorities on her ‘Sanctuary City’ policy regarding illegal immigrants this week, saying her community will never give-in to the “Bully-in-Chief” in the White House.
According to CBS San Francisco, Mayor Libby Schaaf made her pledge while speaking with reporters Thursday following an Immigration and Customs Enforcement announcement that ICE would be conducting raids throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including Oakland.
“It is no surprise that the bully in chief is continuing to try to intimidate our most vulnerable residents,” said Schaaf, a longtime Hillary Clinton supporter. “We’re very clear that our values are to protect all of our residents regardless of where we come from. We want to protect families, not tear them apart.”
“The fact that the federal government is suggesting that it is actively retaliating against jurisdictions that are exercising their right to have sanctuary policies — that is what is illegal,” she added.
The west coast mayor was then asked by reporters if she would rather go to prison than cave on Oakland’s sanctuary status.
“YES!” she replied.
