The President is pointing the finger at Democrats for a lack of progress on DACA and immigration reform.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

President Trump says Democrats don't really want a deal on DACA and he raised the specter of a government shutdown, tweeting that Democrats just want to take money away from the military.

Some Democrats have signaled they want a fix for so-called Dreamers attached to a spending bill. Republican Senator Rand Paul says Democrats need to compromise:

(Paul) "Having a more merit based system to bring people into this country, more work based system. I'm all for that. But if they're not willing to compromise they're going to sabotage it themselves."

Congress has until midnight Friday to pass a spending bill before the federal government runs out of money.
