Just hours after Donald Trump met with Democratic and Republican members of Congress to discuss a deal on immigration reform, the president was quick to lash out on Twitter. As expected, Trump's remarks didn't go over well with his critics.

Trump on immigration

The first order of business Donald Trump addressed when he announced his campaign for president back in the summer of 2015 was in regards to reforming immigration. The former host of "The Apprentice" quickly came under fire after he labeled illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers," before promising that Mexico would pay for the construction of a border wall, and leaving the door open for mass deportation.

Trump's rhetoric increased during the campaign and through his first year in office, leading to a publicly aired meeting with the president and members of Congress at the White House on Tuesday. Following the meeting, the White House announced that the president would sign a bill to extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as long as it was tied to further border security. Despite the apparent steps towards compromise, Trump decided to let off some steam during a series of tweets on January 9.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday night, Donald Trump took a shot at Democrats while demanding that his border wall funding be included in any deal.

"As I made very clear today, our country needs the security of the Wall on the Southern Border, which must be part of any DACA approval," Trump tweeted.

"Memo released today said DACA recipients and immigrants are 'critical' for their electoral survival," Donald Trump tweeted out, before adding, "now we know why Dems want open borders & no voter IDs." "Notice when Dems negotiate immigration they put those who aren't even American citizens first?" the president went on to write, while stating, "Sickening!" In his final tweet as of press time, the billionaire real estate mogul posted a link to a prototype of his proposed border wall, while writing, "BUILD THE WALL!"

The topic of immigration reform has long been a controversial issue in American politics, with Democrats and Republicans often being far apart during negotiations.

While the public meeting between both sides appeared cordial, it doesn't look like Donald Trump is ready to back down from his core position anytime soon, at least when it comes to the idea of building a wall between the United States and Mexico in an attempt to prevent a potential increase in Illegal Immigration.
