GOP still struggling with Trump's remarks on Africa

When President Donald Trump claimed that he didn't want America to accept immigrants from "shithole countries" such as those in Africa - Trump has more or less denied saying this, but anyone who believes him needs their head examined - he was being a racist, a xenophobe and an all-around ignoramus.

In that meeting, according to Durbin and multiple reports, Trump referred to Haiti and countries in Africa with vulgar language, indicating he didn't want immigrants from those nations in the USA, but would prefer more Europeans.

"I guess they all realized they're going to have to leave it to a president that scored the highest on tests".

Trump's comments on Sunday were a departure from the White House's initial statement, which did not deny the comments outright, but noted that the president did not denigrate Haiti, as was alleged. Durbin on Monday responded to Cotton and Perdue's allegations. The program now protects roughly 700,000 people, mostly Hispanic young adults, from deportation and provides them work permits.

Durbin and Graham crafted the bill with two other Republicans, Sens. I've seen people. then they get their new knees when they're 55 years old and they get their new hips and they do all those things.

"I saw what Sen".

What Durbin should have said was: "What is said between the president of the United States and the second-ranking Senate Democrat during a closed-door negotiation stays behind closed doors". So let me be clear.

"He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country". "The difference is, I'm right". Jackson said he'd be arranging to have a dietitian consult with the White House chef to cut calories and would be recommending a low-impact, aerobic exercise program for Trump, with the aim of shedding 10 to 15 pounds this year.

Appearing on "The View" on Martin Luther King Day, Rep. Lewis (D-Ga.) agreed with the sentiment expressed by co-host Joy Behar.

Guest co-host Alicia Menendez pressed Durbin on why he didn't scold the president in the moment. Republican Lindsay Graham of SC supported his version. His comments have been widely criticized around the world - especially by countries included in his description - and were largely derided by the USA media. Indeed, it is precisely because of Trump's anti-illegal-immigration bona fides that he may be able to deliver what Republican and Democratic presidents before him could not.

Graham has not disputed Durbin's account.

Mr Trump also said the allegation was hurting efforts to strike a deal to protect so-called Dreamer immigrants. At one point, Trump turned to Durbin and said, "You want to know the truth, Dick?"
