President Trump sent out three Twitter messages Friday afternoon.

Democrats have dug in their heels, insisting on DACA or they will not vote to approve funding for the government. With only hours to go before a midnight deadline, and a government shutdown looming, President Trump invited Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer into his office for a talk.

Reportedly only four people were in the meeting: President Trump, his Chief of Staff John Kelly, Schumer, and Schumer’s chief of staff. After the meeting, Schumer made a brief statement, saying, “We had a long and detailed meeting, we discussed all of the major outstanding issues, we made some progress, but we still have a good number of disagreements. The discussions will continue.”

President Trump tweeted of the meeting, “Excellent preliminary meeting in Oval with @SenSchumer – working on solutions for Security and our great Military together with @SenateMajLdr McConnell and @SpeakerRyan. Making progress – four week extension would be best!”

President Trump also tweeted about the newly approved FISA bill, clarifying that it was NOT the same Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that was so abused during the presidential election season. Several changes were made to the law before it was reauthorized.

“Just signed 702 Bill to reauthorize foreign intelligence collection. This is NOT the same FISA law that was so wrongly abused during the election. I will always do the right thing for our country and put the safety of the American people first!” Trump tweeted.

For the first time in it’s 45-year history, a sitting president took the time to personally address the annual March For Life event, and President Trump was proud to be that president Friday, as he spoke in a ceremony at the Rose Garden, while live-streaming video of his address was broadcasted on huge screens to the thousands of attendees on the National Mall.

Trump tweeted a video clip from his speech, and stated, “Today, I was honored and proud to address the 45th Annual @March_for_Life! You are living witnesses of this year’s March for Life theme: #LoveSavesLives.”
