South Africa protests to US embassy over Trump "shithole" remark

The president made the comments to White House reporters at his Florida golf resort on Sunday. AGENCIES

"That I can tell you".

On Sunday morning, Durbin's communications director tweeted a response to Perdue's apparent questioning of the credibility of the IL senator's account of what Trump said at Thursday's Oval Office meeting.

Trump was meeting with lawmakers about a potential deal on immigration last week when he questioned why the US should admit more people from Africa and Haiti. "I never had a problem", she said, dismissing allegations that Trump had raped her.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting".

A confidant of Trump's told The Associated Press that the president spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction to his remarks.

The U.S. president reportedly made the comment during a meeting with congressional leaders in the Oval Office on Thursday. Durbin said the remarks were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

The South Carolina Republican says White House chief of staff John Kelly is "a fine man, but he's part of the staff".

In a statement on Sunday, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, Ghana's minister of foreign affairs, explained that the invitation of the USA ambassador is necessary following "unprovoked attacks by president Trump".

She also suggested that if a more diverse group of lawmakers were in the room at the time, Trump may not have made the same comments, pointing to backlash from other Republicans like Rep.

On the false missile alert sent by Hawaiian officials, which triggered panic and confusion in the state, the president said he "love [s] that they took responsibility".

We will need to ensure that all students feel supported and know that we believe that they can achieve at the highest level.

Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) went on the attack Sunday morning, attempting to smear Sen.

Senator Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., issued a statement in support of Durbin shortly after the meeting. Graham also attended the meeting.

"I am telling you that he did not use that word", he told ABC's This Week.

"He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country". Dick Durbin and Republican Sen. "I can't defend the indefensible", said Mia Love, a Haitian-American congresswoman from Utah who campaigned on Trump's behalf in the country's Haitian community.

The White House said Trump had no intention of apologizing.

That would allow Dreamers to apply to renew their status under the program implemented by President Barack Obama in 2012, unless overturned by a higher court. "I think they talk about DACA, but they don't want to help the DACA people".

Trump wants to increase spending on the military, while Democrats want corresponding increases in other domestic spending.

Left to its own devices, the State Department came up with its own talking points to be used by US missions in Africa working to stem the damage, said a USA official, who wasn't authorized to disclose internal deliberations and demanded anonymity.
