19 Stars Trump Has Sparred With on Twitter

Late-night TV returned Tuesday night after a two-week hiatus just in time to tear Donald Trump's administration apart for the decision to terminate Barack Obama's immigration program, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

DACA allows children who were brought to the United States illegally at an early age to remain in the country as adults. These children are often referred to as "Dreamers."

Trump's termination plan will allow Congress a 6-month window to come up with legislation that resolves the immigration laws and procedures in the United States.

"Trump wants to end the DACA program, but only after a six-month delay. You know, because by then it will be President Pence's problem," Jimmy Fallon said in his opening monologue.

See what else Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert and Fallon had to say about the motion upon their return.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

Kimmel couldn't imagine why Trump would stoop so low, going after innocent children, so he started his monologue off by joking that Trump asked his staff for a good "distraction" from the real issue.

"Now that this hurricane is over, what's something horrible I can do to distract people from the Russia investigation," Kimmel said as Trump.

But if that isn't the casw, Kimmel believes the only other explanation is just pure revenge on anything Obama did during his time in the White House.

"It seems like his main agenda is just to undo everything Obama did," he said. "I hope he doesn't bring Bin Laden back to life."

Kimmel added that the majority of these 800,000 kids have never even paid a visit to their parents' country of origin, then turned the tables on the Trump family, with a faux pro-DACA ad positioning Trump's kids as Dreamers, too.

"These children, for instance, can't help that their mother was an Eastern European immigrant," the narrator of the fake ad said, then cut to Ivanka Trump presenting her line of shoes. "These Dreamers work hard to put shoes on American feet.

"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon"

Fallon was overwhelmed by Tuesday's news load as people are celebrating the "US Open, while Trump is saying it's closed."

"Trump wants to end the DACA program, but only after a six-month delay. You know, because by then it will be President Pence's problem," Fallon joked. "Many people are outraged, while Melania was like, 'Well, rules are rules so see ya. You said it, so I gotta go.'"

But Fallon presented a reverse psychology approach that could fix this mess. All Obama has to do is say he hates the immigration program he implemented during his presidency and Trump will want to put all of his money into making it great again.

"The Late Late Show with James Corden"

Corden thought it was interesting that Attorney General Jeff Sessions told America that the plan isn't sending a message that immigrants are bad people, because it's pretty clear Sessions is the bad person for ending DACA.

"Sessions also explained that the kids will still be dreamers, but in more of a 'Nightmare on Elm Street' sort of way," Corden joked.

The CBS late-night host also pointed out how the states of New York and Washington want to sue the president for his decision, which seems to be a good way to judge how you're doing as the president of the United States.

"Ask yourself how many US states are currently suing me right now," he said. "If it's more than zero, you could improve."

"Late Night with Seth Meyers"

Meyers was in such disbelief of Trump's "cruel" and "capricious" decision to end DACA that he expected the president to "hide behind his attorney general."

But Trump didn't end there, he stayed in character by sending out a short tweet almost demanding Congress to pass the law he just rescinded.

"Trump ends every tweet like he's jumping out from behind a door to scare you," he said. "Congress get ready to do your job. DACA!"

"Late Show with Stephen Colbert"

Colbert returned to call Trump's decision to end DACA a "man-made disaster" in the White House.

"The thing is, the vast majority of Americans like this program. So by canceling it, Trump has stepped in some deep DACA," he said.

Colbert was also annoyed that the president wasn't even brave enough to make the announcement himself, sending Sessions to do his dirty work.

"As my mama used to say, 'Life is like a box of chocolates, now get out of the country,'" Colbert said in his Sessions impression.
