“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."

A White House official said anything left out of the transcript was not done on purpose, according to the Post, and that the conversation's context was clear. The White House later sent out a corrected version of the transcript.

Later in the meeting, Trump said: “We do a Phase 1, which is DACA and security, and we do Phase 2, which is comprehensive immigration."

Trump on Tuesday said lawmakers should pass a "bill of love" to resolve the fate of young undocumented immigrants who benefit from an Obama-era program he scrapped last year.

“I hope we’re going to come up with an answer for DACA,” Trump said at an extraordinary televised session in the White House Cabinet Room with lawmakers from both parties.

The unusual setting allowed Democrats and Republicans alike to exchange their views on-camera for roughly an hour over the complicated immigration talks.
