3:35 am
800,000 children who were brought to the united states as kids. the judge says they would suffer irreparable harm, the justice department fired back vowing to defend its position that daca was unlawful because it was implemented without congress. the ruling came just hours after president trump hosted bipartisan talks on daca with the government shutdown looming and cameras rolling. lawmakers are hoping to pass a revised bill on the matter before the deadline. republicans insist the legislation should not be attached to a must-pass spending bill, but democrats tried to convince the president to take a two-step approach. >> what about a clean daca bill now with a commitment that we go into a comprehensive immigration procedure when kennedy was here.
3:36 am

i don't think at this point she is actually considering it. >> reporter: the oprah show, something president trump knows a lot about. oprah once asking if he would run for president. >> i just don't think i really have the inclination to do it. i like what i'm doing. >> also doesn't pay as well. >> reporter: his white house aides aren't laughing. they're already lobbing political hits. what advice would you give a political outsider like oprah who seems intrigued about the idea of running? >> i'm not going to focus on anyone's campaign other than trump's reelection. >> reporter: she qualify? >> listen, i disagree very much on her policies. is she a successful individual, absolutely, but in terms of where she stands on a number of positions i would find a lot of problems with that. >> reporter: well, that's the white house. they say they welcome all challengers. what about the democrats? president obama's director tweeted "call me", so they are intrigued.
3:46 am
