On Sunday, President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and First Daughter Tiffany Trump attended Easter services at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal church.
As the trio approached the entrance of the church, reporters asked Trump about the Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which he tweeted about in the morning.
“Mexico has got to help us at the border,” he said. “If they’re not going to help us at the border, it’s a very sad thing. Mexico has got help us at the border.”
He added that the “Democrats blew it” because they had a “great, great, chance,” but explained legislators will have to “take a look.”
“But Mexico has got to help us at the border,” Trump said. “They flow right through Mexico. They send them into the United States. Can’t happen that way anymore.”Nicholas Kamm/Getty
Trump and the first lady held hands as they went into the church, which the Sun-Sentinel reported had about 800 attendees. The congregation reportedly applauded the first family as they left services.
First Son Donald Trump Jr., his children, First Son Eric Trump, his wife, Lara Lea, and his son, Eric Trump Jr., and First Son Barron Trump were also in Mar-a-Lago for the weekend but did not join the president at church.
The family reconvened after services at Mar-a-Lago for a late Easter lunch, which came complete with a red carpet.
The president and first lady were married at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal church in 2005 and attended Easter church services there last year.
