The president's willingness to sign a bill that includes a pathway to citizenship is a shift from his campaign promise to end all "amnesty" for undocumented immigrants.
Along those lines, the President Wednesday also again emphasized the need for an immigration deal to include $25 billion this year for his border wall, and another $5 billion for other immigration enforcement efforts.
But to get the 60 Senate votes to get a plan approved - a total that would require nine Democxrats if all 51 Republicans stuck together - Trump needs to convince the more skeptical partisans.
"The president's framework is generous and humane, while also being responsible", the Arkansas senator said in a statement.

The proposed bill, to be unveiled on Monday, requests $25bn ($NZ34bn) in funds for a wall on the Mexican border.
"President Trump shouldn't invite us to the White House for a meeting on infrastructure and three hours before issue the equivalent of what are arrest warrants for standing up for what we believe in and, by the way, what America believes in", said Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago.

"This framework will fulfill the four agreed-upon pillars: securing the border and closing legal loopholes; ending extended-family chain migration; cancelling the visa lottery, and providing a permanent solution on DACA", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
The proposal was supposed to be under wraps (and maybe under development) until Monday, but presidential advisor (and former Michele Bachmann and Jeff Sessions staffer) Stephen Miller conducted a conference call with Republican congressional folk that naturally leaked nearly instantly.
Trump's sympathy to a pathway to permanency for the young immigrants after they've spent 10 or 12 years in the country is a "major breakthrough", argued Sen. "This framework provides certainty for families, enacts common-sense reforms to nuclear family sponsorship policy and protects our nation". The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program established under the Obama administration allowed people who had entered the country illegally as children to remain under deferred action from deportation. While the proposal's pathway to citizenship for almost 2 million undocumented immigrants will earn plaudits from many Democrats, the framework also includes several hardline immigration reforms that Democrats may find hard to swallow.
There was a much more measured response with Senate Republicans.
The White House announcement on immigration came as 35 senators gathered late Wednesday to figure out how the chamber will proceed on its immigration debate. The goal is to produce consensus legislation within the group that would be the starting point for Senate debate on immigration, which is expected to begin February 8, said Sens. I look forward to working with my colleagues to turn the framework into legislation that can pass both the House and the Senate with widespread support.
That proposal immediately provoked the ire of Democrats, who have been battling Republicans and Trump for weeks over immigration. He said the plan "doesn't pass the laugh test".
