President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that there will be no Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals deal. 

Instead, he suggested Senate Republicans use the nuclear option — ruling on a simple majority vote — to move forward on immigration reform.

His tweet said, in part: "Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!"

Ohio Gov. John Kasich responded to the tweet a few hours after it was published, saying, "A true leader preserves & offers hope, doesn't take hope from innocent children who call America home."

Trump also discussed the North American Free Trade Agreement in his early morning tweets. He said he would dismantle NAFTA if Mexico doesn't slow the flow of immigrants coming across its own southern border.

Trump seems to like the nuclear option — he's called on Senate Republicans to use it several times in the past.

Right now, the Senate requires 60 votes to end debates and vote on legislation.
