Over the last 24 hours, Donald Trump reached a potential deal with leaders in the Democratic Party on extending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). In the deal, Democrats were able to avoid signing on for funding of the president's border wall, which has left the White House in a tough position to defend what was agreed too.

Sanders on border wall

When Donald Trump announced that he was running for president in June 2015, he did so by quickly making headlines when he smeared illegal immigrants from Mexico. The former host of "The Apprentice" labeled many of those coming into the United States from Mexico as "murderers" and "rapists," and would end up elaborating on his controversial immigration plans in the months that followed.

From possible mass deportation, to forcing Mexico to fully fund a border wall, Trump made promises that didn't seem realistic, but went over well with his core base. After his upset election win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Trump found that it was difficult to hold up his end of the bargain when it came to the promises he made on the campaign trail. On Wednesday night, a deal was tentatively reached between Trump and the Democrats where his original plan to end DACA would be put on hold without any funding being agreed upon for his border wall. As expected, supporters of the president were outraged, forcing Sarah Huckabee Sanders to do Damage Control during a September 14 interview on Fox News.

During an Thursday interview on Fox News, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was in the unfortunate position of defending Donald Trump's deal with Democrats to the conservative base. "He (Trump) wants to get a deal done. He wants to do that with DACA, but also to include massive border security and interior enforcement," Sanders said, before adding, "That’s what he’s tweeted this morning." Sanders was eluding to the president's Twitter posts from earlier in the morning that resulted in major outrage, including from longtime supporters like Ann Coulter.

When pressed about the future of the border wall, Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted that it was still in the plans. "The wall is already going through extensive renovations," she said.

"They are already building sample walls. That part is already moving forward," Sanders continued, causing many to wonder what exactly a "sample wall" really is. Sanders continued to get grilled over the wall, but went back to her defense, stating, "like I just said, they are already building sample walls."

While Donald Trump causes chaos in his own base, he appears willing to work with Democrats on a variety of issues. In addition to his deal over DACA, Trump also came together with Nancy Pelosi ad Chuck Schumer over a short-term bill to keep the government funding for the next three months, much to the chagrin of some of his supporters.
