Few issues have animated U.S. President Donald Trump's ardent supporters more than his pledge to build a wall along the nation's southern border.Some avid Trump backers praised the president as a pragmatist trying to make deals with whomever he can. But others recoiled at the prospect of Trump joining forces with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on immigration, and seeming to get little in return.The worries were sparked by Trump's startling efforts to forge consensus with Schumer and Pelosi – "Chuck and Nancy," as the president has cozily referred to the Democratic duo – over the fate of nearly 800,000 people brought to the U.S. illegally as children.As a candidate, Trump vowed to repeal the executive action signed by President Barack Obama allowing the young people to stay.But he's struggled with the issue as president, often speaking sympathetically about the young immigrants. Once in the White House, Trump's nationalist-minded advisers, particularly strategist Steve Bannon, often pressed the president on the particular importance of fulfilling his promise on the border wall.Some of Trump's supporters praised the president for what they see as pragmatism.
