Martin King Jr.'s nephew maintains that Trump isn't racist

African U.N. envoys suggested on Thursday that U.S. President Donald Trump meet with African leaders in Ethiopia this month after he was reported to have described some immigrants from Africa and Haiti as coming from "shithole" countries. "He cares about the economy".

The president on Sunday denied he is a racist, telling reporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in the state of Florida, "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

The President's son spoke out following the latest instance of Trump saying something deemed by critics to be racist or racially insensitive.

As the firestorm over Trump's comment began late last week, the White House and Trump's National Security Council provided no guidance to the State Department about what to say to foreign countries who were incensed, said a US official familiar with the conversations between the White House and other federal agencies.

A person familiar with last week's bipartisan meeting where Trump reportedly made the initial remarks said Illinois Democratic Sen.

What motivated Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., to speak out and claim that President Trump called some countries "s--holes?"

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting, "Trump tweeted". Finally, she announced that "I have nothing further to say on a meeting that happened over a week ago".

"While this is the first #MLKDay with an unrepentant & unreconstructed racist in the White House, we are neither intimidated by insult nor tweet - we are prayerful not fearful", he said. "I'll just say, what Senator Durbin has portrayed is a misportrayal", the Arkansas senator told Little Rock radio station KARN on Tuesday. "We have nothing but respect for you and we welcome you to our shores as visitors, or as residents", he said.

The White House said Trump had no intention of apologizing.

Javier Fuenes, 21, and Wilson Madrid, 23, suffered minor injuries in the explosion and were taken by ambulance to local hospitals. The Coast Guard responded to the scene and the federal Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration dispatched an investigator.

Senator Lindsey Graham, another Republican participant, told fellow South Carolina Senator Tim Scott the media reports of the comments were "basically accurate", according to The Post and Courier.

"I don't specifically remember a categorization of countries in Africa", she said, although she later added, "There was a lot of rough talk by a lot of people in the room".

Those taking part in the rally say they demand an apology from the president for his alleged disparaging remarks last week.

With his words, Trump has turned this into something common what was once scandalous and egregious, what former extremists used to say behind closed doors. Mr Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Trump piled on Monday, accusing Durbin of misrepresenting what he said and of damaging prospects for a deal to protect young immigrants who were brought to the USA illegally as children.

Graham told her that Durbin is "a decent, honest man" and that Trump was the real problem. Trump announced past year that he will end the Obama-era DACA program unless lawmakers come up with a solution by March.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, also present during last week's meeting, offered an explanation for the President's comments.

Trump has defended himself against accusations of being a racist on numerous occasions, including during his insistence that President Barack Obama was not American-born and after he opened his presidential campaign in 2015 by describing Mexicans as rapists and drug peddlers.

Meanwhile, the government funding deadline is Friday, and Paul said he had thought the immigration debate would be settled separately from the spending issue.
