Trump Calls Courts 'Broken And Unfair' After DACA Ruling
On Tuesday, a federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

President Donald Trump called the U.S. court system "broken and unfair" in an early-morning tweet Wednesday.

His tweet comes after a federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, more commonly known as DACA, on Tuesday.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also responded to the judge's decision, saying the ruling was "outrageous, especially in light of the president's successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House on the same day."

Now, whether that meeting was "successful" or not, might depend on whom you ask. As Newsy previously reported, Trump and lawmakers appear to have different ideas about what should go into a DACA bill to revive the program, which is set to be repealed in March.

Trump is still pushing for his much-promised border wall, something Democrats widely oppose. Still, they hope to have some sort of deal to sign into law by Jan. 19.
