A White House official said anything left out of the transcript was not done on purpose.
The official White House transcript of President Trump’s comments on immigration failed to include a line from the president regarding a clean bill to address recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
During the meeting on Tuesday, Trump was asked by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) if he would support “a clean DACA bill.”
“Yeah, I would like to do it,” Trump said during the meeting, according to The Washington Post.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) then told the president he needed to be “clear.”
“I think what Senator Feinstein is asking here — when we talk about just DACA, we don’t want to be back here two years later. You have to have security," McCarthy said during the meeting.
The White House’s official transcript did not include the line from Trump saying, “Yeah, I would like to do it.”
