"We want to have a DACA compromise", the Wisconsin Republican said at a GOP leadership press conference, referring to the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created by President Obama.

The White House has since issued a correction that now includes Trump's words on the matter.
