White House aide: Trump may not insist on border wall funds in DACA billPresident Donald Trump waves as he walks across the South Lawn to board Marine One at the White House in Washington, Tuesday, Aug. 22, 2017, for a short trip to Andrews Air Force Base, Md. and then onto Yuma, Ariz. to visit the U.S. border with Mexico and attend a rally in Phoenix.
