Reject Trump's racist language and work for new immigration policies

Democrats and Republicans presented him last week with exactly the bipartisan deal he said he would sign - protecting the immigrant "Dreamers" while also providing funding for his border security "wall" - but Trump unexpectedly exploded with his racist attack and vulgar word.

That means that DACA holders for now can apply to renew their protections, which were due to begin expiring on March 5.

If the first part had the makings of "I'm Not a Crook" Nixon, the latter is vintage Trump in a state of ecstatic self-delusion, emphatically repeating a lie long enough to own it, to believe it, and to make others believe it, too. "We are still accepting applications".

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: "The president hasn't said he didn't use strong language". But his doctor, White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, told reporters on Tuesday that the president's overall health is "excellent", despite his unhealthy habits, because he has "incredible genes".

On one side are the Democrats who are considering running for president and as a result want to please their party base, including Sens.

"We think we'll avoid a shutdown", White House legislative director Marc Short told reporters after a meeting on Capitol Hill.

Meadows has backed an immigration bill with more restrictions than Democrats are likely to agree to. And Nielsen appeared to realize her slavish defense of Trump was doing her no good.

Trump questioned why the US would accept immigrants from Haiti and demanded that they be taken out of the deal, corroborating accounts of the disparaging comments. Richard Durbin, D-Illinois, and Lindsay Graham, R-South Carolina.

Who goes to the Super Bowl?
He'll have to elevate his game in order to push the Eagles into the Super Bowl - a tough ask against this caliber of defense. He is rarely caught out of position and one of the reasons why it is hard to break chunk plays against Minnesota's defense.

"Tuesday, we had a president that I was proud to golf with", Graham said, "call my friend, who understood immigration had to be bipartisan".

Democratic lawmakers want to save almost 800,000 dreamers from deportation, but they're not wild about pouring billions into Trump's border wall and taking other steps he's demanding on immigration. "That I can tell you".

Since the controversy erupted, Trump has not explicitly denied referring to African countries and Haiti as "s***holes", but has said, without offering details, that he did not use the language attributed to him. He also said that Durbin had a history of dishonesty.

"I remember specific cuss words being used by several members", she added.

"You were in the room, you're under oath", pointed out Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Patrick Leahy, the senaor from Vermont.

When asked about Trump's reported statements about preferring immigrants from Norway, Nielsen said Trump was using Norway as an example of a country whose citizens work hard.

These include everything from eliminating the diversity immigrant visa system, which encourages immigration to the United States by qualified individuals from countries with small numbers of immigrants to the United States, to ending what the Trump administration has called "chain migration", or preferences for those with family ties in the United States. "Norway is a predominantly white country, isn't it?" he asked, rhetorically.

"I actually do not know that, sir, but I imagine that's the case", Nielsen said.
