*Subject:* Pool Report #3 More Daca/Wall comments

Marine One came into view at 3:35 pm, touched down at 3:38, and POTUS and FLOTUS came down the steps at 3:40 pm.

Same drill as this morning, Marine One engines going, so it was hard to hear, but TV boom mics will mean decent audio - perhaps for Pool Report #4.

President Trump suggested again that the sequencing would be some sort of DACA legislation first, then the wall to follow, and that the ongoing conversations/deal-making aimed to ensure Democrats don't try to block wall funding.

"if the Democrats aren't going to approve it [money for the wall], then we're not going to do what they want," he said.

[Do you have a deal today with Democrats?]

"We're working on a deal for DACA, but a lot has to do with the amount of security. We want very heavy security at the border"

"Ultimately we don't want them [Democrats] to obstruct."

[DACA now and the wall later?]

"DACA now and the wall very soon, but the wall will happen"

[Repeated Q, there's a new report that you were so upset with Sessions that you asked him to resign]

POTUS shook his head no.

[what about a path to citizenship for DREAMers?]

"We're not talking about that. We're not talking about amnesty at all."
