While the Vatican newspaper noted that the White House did not immediately deny the remarks, Trump later tweeted, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

SNELL: And now, that commitment is important because what I've heard a lot of the negotiators say is that if they had a deal in hand and the White House had signed off and the House had signed off and the Senate had signed off, then they could move forward to the spending deal and vote maybe later at the end of January or early in February, and all sides could still be satisfied.

The Republican leadership was flabbergasted and furious, as were his own advisers.

Third-ranking Senate Republican John Thune of South Dakota said it will take more time to build a consensus.

A bipartisan group of US senators on Thursday reached a tentative agreement on legislation to protect young "Dreamer" immigrants from deportation, along with other immigration policy changes, and is attempting to build support for the deal in Congress.

Bloomberg's Sahil Kapur reports on bipartisan efforts in the Senate to reach a deal on immigration.

Lawmakers have been rushing to forge a deal on the young immigrants protected under the soon-to-be-cancelled Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The President hopes to advance towards legislation that ensures border security, ends chain migration, does away with the visa lottery programme and tackles the DACA issue in a responsible manner, she added.

Nobody wants to see the Dreamers deported, particularly since many would be returning to odd and risky places, and most are living productive lives in this country.

But large majorities of Americans, including Democrats and Republicans, want Dreamers to stay. Heck, they won't be able to support Oprah's re-election in 2024. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told reporters there was more negotiating to be done. The money would fund a partial construction of a fence along the border, technology and the training and retention of border patrol agents. Remember; he launched his presidential campaign by making statements that Mexicans crossing into the country illegally, many of them were rapists. Later, after TV cameras left, he listed other wishes, such as different rules for legal migration and getting rid of a diversity immigration program. Among them are Kate's Law, which enhances penalties for illegal immigrants who re-enter the country after being deported, and mandatory use of E-Verify, an electronic employment authorization system.

Some hardline supporters of Trump - who ran on a pledge to crack down on immigration - have criticized his talks about a bipartisan DACA solution.

One of the sources who was briefed on the conversation quoted Mr Trump as saying: "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?" So Congress is working against a clock here.

But some Republicans wanted nothing to do with this bill, including Sen.
