MORNING BRIEF: Trump meets with top Dems for dinner and talk DACA, border wall

Democratic congressional leaders emerged from a meeting with President Donald Trump Wednesday vowing to pursue an agreement protecting immigrants who were brought illegally into the U.S. as children from deportation.

In a joint statement, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said they and Trump had "agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that's acceptable to both sides."

The White House responded to the border-wall claim.

'HAD NO GAME'

If anyone thought President Donald Trump would remain silent, or let surrogates do the talking for him, regarding Hillary Clinton’s new book and her recent public appearances to promote it, they guessed wrong.

On Wednesday evening, the president issued a couple of tweets referring to his opponent in the 2016 presidential race.

ANCHOR SPEAKS OUT

ESPN host Jemele Hill took to Twitter on Wednesday evening “to address the elephant in the room,” after coming under fire Monday for calling President Donald Trump a “white supremacist.”   

“My comments on Twitter expressed my personal beliefs. My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light. My respect for the company and my colleagues remains unconditional,” Hill tweeted.
