President Trump said Sunday that the program protecting young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children is "probably dead," placing the blame on Democrats.

"DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military," Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump announced last year that he would rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but provided Congress with six months to craft a legislative fix.

Trump on Sunday also said he wants immigrants coming to the U.S. "based on merit."

"I, as President, want people coming into our Country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT. No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST," Trump said.

That tweet comes after heated controversy over a report that said Trump referred to immigrants from African nations, El Salvador and Haiti as coming from "shithole countries."

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" the president reportedly said.

President Trump on Tuesday night delivered a blunt message to Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), saying there would be no agreement to help so-called Dreamers without funding for the president's long-promised border wall."Cryin' Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA. We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!" Trump tweeted.
