Just hours after Donald Trump fired off tweets in opposition to Daca, the president made his way to Easter Church Service along with his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, and other members of his family. Just moments before walking into church, he took time to hit back at Democrats and Mexico over the issue at hand.

Trump on Easter

It's no secret that the issue of illegal immigration has been a top priority for Donald Trump.

Since the early days of his campaign for president, the former host of "The Apprentice" has targeted immigration, starting during his campaign announcement by referring to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." Since his election just over a year ago, Trump has failed to make any progress on the issue, getting massive backlash from Democrats and even some Republicans. With DACA still hanging over his presidency, Trump used Easter to push his political agenda.

During several tweets on Easter morning, Donald Trump threatened to leave DACA dormant for the foreseeable future, making sure to put the blame on the entire Democratic Party and the country of Mexico in the process.

As reported by NBC News on April 1, Trump and his wife were walking into church for an Easter service but he couldn't help himself by talking to reporters. "We’re going to have to really see, and they had a great chance...the Democrats blew it," Trump said. "Mexico has got to help us at the border. They flow right through Mexico, they send them into the United States," he added, before concluding, "It can’t happen that way anymore." After leaving the reporters and heading into church, critics of the president decided to fire back.

Trump backlash

Within minutes of Donald Trump's remarks, those who oppose the administration took time it hit back. "Umm, DACA has nothing to do with people entering the US illegally right now," one tweet read.

"Unless those people are entering via a time machine back to 2007, DACA doesn’t apply. This man is an idiot," a Twitter user wrote. "How he can say that walking into The House of God...is beyond comprehension," another tweet noted. "Will he be napping in church again like last time?" an additional tweet stated.

"So gentlemanly that he turns his back on his own daughter as he walks away," a social media user posted.

"He is gripping her hand like I do with my 3 year old grandchild when he is trying to escape and run off," a follow-up tweet read. The negative reaction continued as the rift between Trump and the majority of the American people showed no signs of coming to an end anytime soon.
