Trump's tweets came just hours after his administration resumed receiving renewal applications for "dreamers" under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program - or DACA.

Asked what he thinks about people who think he's racist, Trump said: "I'm not a racist". The deal had included a pathway to citizenship for the "Dreamers" that would take up to 12 years, as well as $1.6 billion for border security, including Trump's promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer says there's "very, very strong" sentiment among Democrats to oppose a four-week government-wide funding bill that's slated for a House vote Thursday. Some were brought in the country illegally as children; others entered the US legally but overstayed visas. Perdue says Durbin and Republican Sen.
