THURMONT, Md. — President Donald Trump says he’s had some “incredible meetings” with Republican congressional leaders and Cabinet members at Camp David as they ready their 2018 legislative agenda.
He says the group discussed a variety of topics — from national security and infrastructure to the military and the budget.
Trump says “we are very well prepared for the coming year. We finished very strong.”
Trump is hoping to work out a deal with Democrats that may include granting legal status to about 800,000 young immigrants who were temporarily shielded from deportation under an Obama-era program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
He says “it’s something certainly that I’d like to see happen.”
Trump also wants to address the problem of drug “pouring into this country and how to stop it.” He’s citing opioids and “drugs in the traditional sense.”
