Trump Reportedly Tweeted DACA Reassurance At the Behest of Nancy Pelosi

…Huh?

President Trump sent out a really peculiar tweet this morning where he reassured undocumented immigrants living in the United States under the DACA program. The Trump Administration rescinded the measure earlier this week, but Trump is now telling DACA recipients that they’ve got no reason to be afraid — for now.

Shortly after Trump’s message was sent out, POLITICO’s Heather Caygle reported that the president tweeted about this because House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi asked him to do so.

According to The Daily Beast, “Pelosi told her colleagues at a whip meeting this morning that she spoke to Trump this morning via phone and asked him to tweet this to make clear DREAMers won’t be subject to deportation in a six-month window.”

Various journalists from other news outlets have spoken to Democratic aides close to Pelosi, who are saying the same thing:

This development comes after Trump made a deal with Pelosi and other Democrats yesterday with regard to raising the national debt ceiling.
