Donald Trump seemed to spend most of his day on Saturday glued to Twitter, and following a morning of tweets musing about the "unfairness" of abuse accusations to the men accused and playing up his own victimhood, the president went on the offensive attacking both Democrats and facts, all in one Tweet (the new 240 character limit goes a long way).

The President also says lawmakers on the left want to use DACA as a campaign issue as the 2018 midterms approach.

What is certain is that the Democrats had control of the White House and the two houses of Congress from January 2009 to January 2011, when the new Republican who had triumphed in the 2010 elections took office and that's when they gained control of the House of Representatives.

Now, Trump wants to approve an immigration reform that allows access to citizenship to 1.8 million undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children, known as "dreamers", but in exchange for USA $25,000 million to build the Mexican wall and strengthen border security.

There are multiple problems with this, beginning with the fact that DACA-the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that offers legal status to undocumented immigrants who arrived to the USA as children-did not exist until 2012.

Trump has demanded that any legislation for a permanent fix must include $25 billion for a wall on the southern border with Mexico to fight illegal immigration.
