President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted that the United States must only accept immigrants who "are going to make us become strong and great again," using a merit-based system.
In his flurry of tweets, he also proclaimed that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, is "probably dead" -- just three days after he used vulgarities to describe Haiti and African countries during an Oval Office meeting on DACA.
In September, the Trump administration said it would eliminate DACA, which protects people who were illegally brought to the United States as children from being deported. Trump says he also wants to stop the diversity lottery, which reserves visas for people from countries that have few immigrants in the United States -- which includes African countries.
In the same slew of tweets, he attacked a Wall Street Journal report that said Trump had a good relationship with Kim Jong Un of North Korea.
"The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them ‘I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un’ (of N. Korea),” Trump tweeted. “Obviously I didn’t say that. I said ‘I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,’ a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters . . .”
