The meeting was with senators on a compromise immigration deal that would increase border security while protecting DACA participants.

The White House did not deny the president's reported remarks. "You have to have security".

President Donald Trump lashed out Wednesday at a federal judge who's temporarily blocked him from ending protections for almost 800,000 young immigrants.

The tone of the discussion, and Mr. Trump's eagerness to strike a deal, triggered warm responses from some of his sharpest critics in both parties.

Flake also admitted to reporters that the Democrats' have not agreed on a border security plan, which President Trump and the GOP is requiring - along with an end to chain migration and the visa-lottery - as part of any deal.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump insisted in a series of Friday morning tweets.

China and Russian Federation , which both oppose the proposal for maritime interdiction , have not been invited to the summit. China said it has halted exports of steel, iron, industrial and transportation equipment to North Korea.

Beyond the immediate issue of DACA and the government shutdown, Trump on Tuesday also expressed willingness to explore "comprehensive immigration reform". He didn't say exactly what he believes that should entail.

In a 49-page ruling, Judge William Alsup of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California said his nationwide injunction is appropriate because "our country has a strong interest in the uniform application of immigration law and policy". "The "Dreamers" have lived their whole lives in this country - many are now in their 30s".

DETROW: Now they say they're working on building support for the deal in Congress.

Senate negotiators were trying to get legislation assembled by next week so it could possibly be attached to a spending bill that Congress will have to pass to avoid government shutdowns after January 19.

Trump ended the Obama-era program in September with a six-month delay to force congressional action on legislation.

The plaintiffs said the Trump administration failed to follow the law in rescinding DACA and would cause irreparable harm by forcing immigrants to leave jobs, drop out of school and potentially be deported.

Media reports also said the Democratic plan would eliminate the visa lottery - as required by Trump - but would then assign the green cards to another Democrat-favored group, the roughly 300,000 "Temporary Protect Status" migrants. And, it would reallocate the diversity visas for other uses, said Cotton of Arkansas.

Leonardo DiCaprio to Star in Quentin Tarantino's Manson Movie
However, confirmation that Leonardo DiCaprio has taken a lead role in his next film is just cream on the strudel. Tom Cruise , Brad Pitt and Al Pacino are also rumored to be interested, or are being sought, for the movie.

Trump's apparent concession so alarmed House majority leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, that he interjected himself, although he was careful only to gently contradict the president.

"There are ways to accomplish the goal in which the interest of both sides can be achieved", Menendez told reporters. "I think the message has now been delivered that we need to get everybody at the table and we'll take the best of their ideas".

Schumer said the judge's ruling "is no guarantee of lasting security" because the judge could be overruled later by a higher court. At the same time, Trump called on Congress to come up with a legislative solution by then to keep the program in place.

Trump has said repeatedly that he wants a bipartisan immigration deal.

But it's early in the process to assume knowledge of what Trump would agree to. Sen. Kelly will not attend every meeting but he is now responsible for getting a deal done.

Alsup's decision follows a number of rulings by other US judges seeking to rein in Trump's immigration policies, including decisions that limited administration moves against sanctuary cities and narrowed the scope of a ban against travel from some Muslim-majority counties. He added later: "But if we get this negotiation right, if we get a solution that is satisfactory to Democrats and Republicans, that will help give confidence for the next round of immigration".
