Trump defends himself anew against charges that he is racist

And he says the IL senator is threatening prospects for a deal to protect certain immigrants.

Joseph DurbinDemocrats turn on Al Franken Minnesota's largest newspaper calls on Franken to resign Democratic senator predicts Franken will resign Thursday MORE (D-Ill.) on Twitter Monday, claiming the senator "totally misrepresented" his reported comments calling Haiti and African nations "shithole countries".

"I don't think Democrats want to make a deal".

But negotiations over a deal on the DACA program froze last week after Trump derided African nations as "sh-hole countries" and asked why more immigrants couldn't come from Norway during the Thursday's closed-door meeting with lawmakers. "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed", Trump said in Florida, according to a pool report.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat at Thursday's meeting, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.

Tim Scott said Graham confirmed to him the President made the remark, telling The Post and Courier of Charleston, S.C., that Graham said the comments being reported in the media were "basically accurate".

Senator Dick Durbin issued a withering rebuke to denials by President Trump that he called Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries "shithole countries".

Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake. The president also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the U.S., according to people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorised to describe the meeting publicly.

"I know what happened".

He said that even Britishers provided assistance to Haj pilgrims by operating ships from sea ports of Bombay and Calcutta. The SC had given the government ten years' time.... the subsidy could have been continued till 2022.

Durbin said the White House should release any recording of the conversation that might exist.

"I've lost all trust in Durbin", Trump said. "How many times do you want me to say that?". "I expect that our assistance program would continue pretty much as they are", Jackson told Joy News.

The African Union on Friday demanded that the U.S. president apologise after the alleged comments, expressing their "shock, dismay and outrage". Trump also reportedly wondered why the US didn't have more immigrants from predominantly white and economically stable countries like Norway.

Graham said he would continue to press for a deal based on what had been tentatively agreed the meeting tomorrow.

While Mr Trump also insisted on Friday that he had "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

"I don't believe the Democrats really want to see a deal on DACA". It's about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia that will potentially disrupt and even destroy the lives of many people. Cotton said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the vulgar word reportedly used.

Trump denied making those comments.

"As someone from South Shithole, Trevor is deeply offended by the president's remarks", US television programme The Daily Show wrote on Twitter, referring to its South Africa-born host Trevor Noah.
