Amateur president Donald Trump does not know how to send out reassuring tweets to calm the nation and instead, he creates calamity on the social site. So, Trump called House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and she told the former reality show star what to tweet to reassure DACA recipients who feel that his administration is trying to f*ck up their lives after rescindeding the program that protects undocumented young people from deportation.
“For all of those (DACA) that are concerned about your status during the 6 month period, you have nothing to worry about – No action!” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

Trump called Pelosi and she taught him how to form a coherent tweet, apparently.

The Huffington Post reports that Pelosi told some Democratic lawmakers that she spoke to Trump on the phone Thursday morning and “asked him to tweet this to make clear DREAMers won’t be subject to deportation in [the] 6 month window.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions outrageously suggested that taxpaying recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program were taking jobs from Americans.
Perhaps Trump should work with Cryin’ Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi on how to cement a plan on keeping DACA intact:
The most important question will be what happens to Dreamers after the six-month period if Congress and Trump don’t make a deal ― which is a very real possibility given the many past failures on the matter, even if lawmakers in both parties are currently insisting they want to work out a compromise to help Dreamers.
Many of the roughly 800,000 DACA recipients have never known another home other than in the U.S., and have pursued careers, education and started families here. Trump has been trying to have it both ways, while previously reassuring DREAMers that they should ‘rest easy’ because his administration won’t act on deportation measures against them, then doing the exact opposite. After that, Trump said that he loves DREAMers and pledged to “treat them with heart.”
For whatever reason, Trump did as Pelosi asked and it’s a good sign. We’re hoping that Pelosi can teach Trump even more about how to use his Twitter account for good instead of using it to create chaos. Meanwhile, Trump’s ardent supporters are going to hate this because for some reason they think he’s some sort of combination between Pepe the Frog and an alpha-male.
