President Trump called out Democratic lawmakers and left-wing activists earlier Friday, accusing Sen. Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and other liberal leaders of “totally forgetting” about DACA just weeks after shutting down the federal government over the hot-button issue.
The President ripped the legislators on social media, reminding “those who are still interested” that the deadline to reach an agreement on the Obama-era policy is rapidly approaching.
“For those of you who are still interested, the Democrats have totally forgotten about DACA. Not a lot of interest on this subject from them!” Trump tweeted.

The President’s not-so-subtle jab serves as a reminder to Democratic leadership that the March 5th deadline is looming large; leaving the fate of nearly two million illegal immigrant youths hanging in the balance.
Trump has repeatedly called for a bipartisan agreement to deal with the ‘Dreamers’ currently residing in the United States, but said no deal can be reached without fully funding his long-promised border wall.
