At his just concluded press conference, President Trump told Lisa Desjardins of PBS News that DACA, the Obama-era executive order that allowed some illegal immigrants who were brought to America as children to stay in the country, as “one of the most difficult subjects” he’s had to deal with so far as president:

POTUS: "The DACA situation is a very, very difficult thing for me because I love these kids. I love kids. I have kids and grandkids."

He went on to say he would deal with these DACA immigrants with “heart”:
Question: what will you do about #DACA? Trump: it's very difficult, I love kids, have kids, have grandkids, will deal with DACA "with heart"

This sounds a whole lot like amnesty, no?
Trump says most DACA beneficiaries are "incredible kids" and hints that there will be some kind of amnesty for them.

Wow, Trump essentially just made the case for amnesty with that DACA answer.
