Another retiring lawmaker, Republican Congressman Mark Sanford of SC, a frequent Trump critic who recently lost his primary election, said Trump's reversal sends "a horrifically chilling signal" that "makes immigration reform that much more unlikely".
Trump made the remarks on Friday in an auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, adjacent to the White House, where he presided over an event with "Angel Families" - those who have had relatives killed by people who have entered the country illegally.
Trump's comments Friday came amid a report by the New York Daily News that said some facilities housing separated children are the same used for unaccompanied migrant minors, who in some cases are later being picked up by immigration agents when they turn 18.
The compromise bill would earmark $23 billion for construction of a border wall, a priority for Trump, and make steep cuts to legal immigration programs, a potential poison pill for Democrats.
The president, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen have all appeared on Capitol Hill this week to urge makers to pass immigration legislation.
"Even if we get 100% Republican votes in the Senate, we need 10 Democrat votes to get a much needed Immigration Bill", Trump said.

FIFA Fan Fest™ celebrates 2.5 million visitors milestone
Blatter's 17-year spell in charge of world football's governing body ended amid a corruption scandal in 2015 . See no evil, hear, yadda yadda.
Trump, who was in Las Vegas to lend support to U.S. Senator Dean Heller of Nevada, a Republican who is facing a stiff challenge to re-election, has been under fire for a policy that separates children from their parents when they illegally cross the U.S. border with Mexico.
This latest GOP melodrama over immigration is a self-inflicted wound, brought about moderate Republicans who wanted to force the House to vote on an issue that has long divided the GOP conference.
Republican leaders plan to consider a bill created to bridge the gap their conservative and more moderate members, but votes twice have been postponed due to lack of support. "Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solve this decades old problem".
"It was more than I expected to see in spite of the fact that we were told that it didn't have enough votes to pass", the Pennsylvania congressman said.
In abandoning the compromise bill and delaying a vote until after the November elections, Trump risks losing $23 billion in funding for border security included in the proposal, some of which would go toward building the wall along the US border with Mexico. However, the bill did receive 193 votes despite little whip support from House Republican leadership.
The bill as drafted requires Congress to sue to enforce the trigger, Meadows said, noting, "I don't even know that we have standing to do that". Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) relayed that message to House Republicans, which factored into their decision to continue negotiations on legislation into next week.
It came a day after Trump - in a stunning about-face - moved to end the practice of splitting migrant families after they cross into the United States from Mexico. Under the bill, all DACA recipients would be granted a pathway to citizenship.
