Donald Trump’s plan to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program sparked strongly worded tweets from Cher and many actions across the country. And the former president Barack Obama also responded to The Trump administration’s termination of DACA.
After Obama’s tweet, Chris Evans summed up what many Americans were thinking about Obama’s answer to President Donald Trump’s plan.
Obama shared his opinion, thinking about Trump’s decision as wrong and “contrary to our spirit, and to common sense.”
To target hopeful young strivers who grew up here is wrong, because they’ve done nothing wrong. My statement: https://t.co/TCxZdld7L4

Following his tweet, Evans explained why the USA’s former president’s statement had big meaning to so many.
“Thank you,” he wrote in a tweet that has now gone viral. “I was starting to forget what a president is supposed to sound like.”

Nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants are protected under DACA. With Trump’s decision, the future of those immigrants, that came to the U.S. as children, are put into uncertainty.
Donald Trump gave a talk to the Congress to craft a legislative replacement for DACA sooner than the Obama-era rule is removed.
