Remember the story about a month ago when President Trump and Chuck Schumer/Nancy Pelosi got into a spat over an alleged DACA deal between the President and Congressional Dems? Schumer’s comms director Matt House tweeted last night that Trump had broken the deal, which Trump never said he made in the first place:
The @POTUS is going back on his agreement with Schumer and Pelosi. Period. Full stop.

House’s pissy tweet came after the NYT and others reported that Trump was going to tie DACA to his immigration priorities, which is what any normal politician would do:

But like we said earlier, Trump never said there was a deal despite the Schumer/Pelosi press release about a month ago:
Pelosi, Schumer on dinner with Pres. Trump: Both sides have "agreed" to immigration reform package and border security, "excluding the wall" pic.twitter.com/C7z36lwPTW

The President made clear he would continue pushing the wall, just not as part of this agreement. https://t.co/KD1SdLAnIF

No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.

And a week before the non-deal, Pelosi took credit for encouraging Donald Trump to tweet this about DACA:
For all of those (DACA) that are concerned about your status during the 6 month period, you have nothing to worry about – No action!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 7, 2017
Pelosi later bragged to reporters how she convinced the president to protect DACA recipients with a “boom boom boom”:
Pelosi on this morning: "I was telling my colleagues, this is what I asked the president to do, and boom boom boom, the tweet appeared."

Boom boom boom … POW! Trump’s not going to let Dems walk over him … hopefully.
Is this a JOKE? Nancy Pelosi reportedly asked Trump to tweet THIS about DACA (and he did) https://t.co/2xF908XiSv
