Trump says Sen. Durbin misrepresented discussion

Trump: 'I'm the least racist person you will ever interview'

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, who confirmed Trump's language at last Thursday's meeting, indicated one sticking point in immigration negotiations was the president's insistence that Congress appropriate all the money he wants to build a border wall with Mexico this year - rather than spreading the appropriations and construction out over a longer period.

President Trump has accused Senator Dick Durbin, D-Ill., of twisting his words.

Durbin said after the Oval Office meeting that Trump's words to the senators were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content". He also stood by his account that the president used the vulgar term and said that he spoke up to Trump in response. Durbin said yes. Trump told Durbin that he would meet with the group at noon.

Sen Patrick Leahy, D-Vt, asked her specifically if she heard the vulgarity used or a "substantially similar word" to describe certain countries.

If the furor over Trump's remarks have overshadowed annual tributes to the man who paid for the fight against racism with his life, it also risks relegating a pressing question about immigration that triggered the President's remarks: what will happen to the program that has allowed the thousands of children of illegal immigrants to remain in the United States?

"The entire point the president made, and others of us made, is that we shouldn't have any kind of country-of-origin quota", Cotton said, adding that he and Trump supported a merit-based immigration system.

One insider believes the discrepancy may be why some Republican senators are denying having heard the president say "shithole".

Durbin - the only Democrat in attendance - told reporters that Trump made the comments that were attributed to him.

As backlash over the alleged comments mounted, Trump denied using such a phrase, admitting only that he used "tough language". "The "Gang of Six" deal to fix DACA will not get a vote in the House or the Senate because POTUS will not sign it", he tweeted.

The scrutiny will take place on February 1 and February 3 will be the last date for withdrawal from the electoral battle. At present, the state Assembly has 24 Congress MLAs, seven UDP, four HSPDP, two NPP, one NCP and eight Independent MLAs.

Shortly before the meeting on Thursday, Trump had an agreeable conversation with Sen.

A key issue they need to agree on is what to do with an Obama-era scheme that protects around 800,000 young people who entered the USA illegally as children - known as the Dreamers.

The six senators who announced the DACA deal last week have tried to press on without the President's endorsement, thinking that, if they could secure more widespread backing for the deal in Congress, there was a chance that Trump would come back to the negotiating table to claim credit. From that meeting came Trump's call for senators to craft an immigration deal that included protection for "Dreamers".

After the mid-terms, Democrats would have two years to prepare their all-out effort to block the brash billionaire Trump, who will be 74 by Election Day 2020.

"There are, I have to say, a growing number of white Americans who are afraid of and do not want to see the browning of America".

On Thursday, Trump called "shithole countries" Haiti, El Salvador, and the African nations. "They want to take money away from our military".

"He has been taking medication for high cholesterol, he has evidence of heart disease based on an exam that many people take around the country a Calcium CT scan and he has borderline obesity", Gupta said. Wrong. What he should have said was "almost every single American who watches Fox News".

"If you don't have a tough skin, this is not a good business to get into", Durbin said.

Democrats have condemned Trump's remarks as "racist", a charge Sanders rejected as "outrageous". Sanders was referring to his reality TV show The Apprentice.
