Trump accuses Democrats of being all-talk, no-action on DACA fix

Meanwhile, dimming prospects for a 2018 spending agreement means lawmakers will have to resort to a temporary funding extension to avert a government shutdown on January 19.

"DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military", the Republican president tweeted.

The president sought to shift from the defensive by portraying Democrats as not truly interested in an immigration deal.

Judge Alsup, however, ruled that the plaintiffs were likely to succeed that in their claims that Trump's decision to end the program was "arbitrary and capricious" and based on a faulty legal premise.

Further roiling the talks are comments by Trump during an Oval Office meeting in which he questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the USA, along with Africans from "shithole" countries, according to people briefed on the conversation but not authorized to describe it publicly.

"The Democrats are all talk and no action".

Trump, who met on Wednesday with the Norwegian prime minister, said the USA instead should bring in more immigrants from countries like that highly developed Scandinavian nation. "We can not let this derail us".

Inside the White House, staffers were largely unfazed, even as the political and diplomatic fallout mounted.

Trump denied making the remarks Friday, although U.S. Senator Richard Durbin, who was in the White House meeting, said the president had used the term.

Republicans and Democrats were already at odds over funding the government, and the negotiations became more complicated after Democrats - whose votes are needed to pass a government funding bill - insisted immigration be included. Some Democrats insist that the DACA question be addressed by then.

Trump has expressed support for legislation to allow DREAMers to stay in the US but wants it linked to funding a wall on the border with Mexico. What was reported was unacceptable. Cotton said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the vulgar word used.

Another participant, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, said in an interview with "Fox News Sunday" that she did not "recall him using that exact phrase", but she acknowledged he "did use and will continue to use strong language". "Until further notice, and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on September 5, 2017", the agency said in a statement Saturday.

Meanwhile this weekend, debate raged over what Trump said in the Thursday meeting - and whether he had said it at all.

"I still think that he should apologize", she said on CNN's "State of the Union".

A Wall Street Journal report quoting Trump saying he had a good relationship with the North Korean leader also came under attack by the president in a Sunday morning tweet.
