Based on Thursday's confusion, the answer apparently boils down to semantics, observes Politico. But this much is clear: Trump and Democrats are close enough that the president's right-wing base is furious.

  • Background: Democrats including Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer had dinner with Trump Wednesday and emerged to say they'd reached an agreement to "enshrine the protections of DACA into law" in exchange for border security improvements, excluding Trump's border wall. Trump followed that up with early morning tweets saying that no final deal had been reached. (The Washington Post parses his tweets and sees some "non-denial denials" at play, while Pelosi and Schumer said Trump's tweets "are not inconsistent with the agreement reached last night.")
  • Coulter, et al.: The president's later comments appeared to be an attempt to soothe anger on the right that emerged upon news of his talks with Democrats. One slam getting much attention is from Ann Coulter, formerly a huge supporter of Trump, who tweeted, "At this point, who DOESN'T want Trump impeached?"
