White House: Trump 'supports DACA program' Despite Previously Calling It Amnesty

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders clarified Friday that President Trump definitely supports the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a day after the president issued a series of confusing statements about his hopes for so-called Dreamers.
"The president supports the DACA program," Sanders told reporters, later adding that Trump remains intent on working with bipartisan lawmakers toward "responsible immigration reform."
But a DACA-supporting president is far from what Trump said he would be when he delivered a fiery speech on immigration policy as a candidate for office last August.
Speaking to supporters in Phoenix at the time, Trump tore into former President Obama and his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton for engaging in "gross dereliction of duty by surrendering the safety of the American people to open borders" and supporting "catch-and-release on the border… visa overstays… the release of dangerous criminals from detention and… unconstitutional executive amnesty."
