Trump and Graham, the end of an ugly friendship

Patty Aguilar | 19 January, 2018, 16:00

Last February, the president said during a press conference at the White House that he was "the least anti-Semitic person you've ever seen in your entire life. And in a defense of Senator Graham, his strong words repeated exactly the words used by the President, which you can not remember".

Trump has acknowledged using "tough language" during the meeting but denied using the term attributed to him, without specifying what he actually said.

Trump issued a fresh denial on Monday, saying: "Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the Daca meeting".

Trump reportedly used the word to describe African countries during an Oval Office meeting on Thursday with a bipartisan group of six senators on immigration reform. The president, in the meeting, also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the US, according to people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorized to describe the meeting publicly. She told Leahy that she did not "recall" Trump using that specific word, but when asked if he had used a substantially word, Nielsen pivoted hard enough to blow out a knee.

After the story first broke, some White House staffers reportedly predicted the remark would resonate with Trump's base, much like his earlier attacks on National Football League players.

While again refusing to explicitly confirm whether or not Trump made those comments, Graham told the Post and Courier "My memory hasn't evolved".

This is not the first time Trump has responded to charges of racism and prejudice.

Paul said Trump was making a valid point. "If they don't have it, so be it", Durbin said. She also called for the mandatory use of an electronic employment verification system, now known as E-Verify, to finally turn off the jobs-magnet that lures so many illegal immigrants to our country. And more than half - 54% - said it was appropriate for the media to repeat Trump's language.

While some of his evangelical backers expressed support for his leadership, other conservative Christians are calling the president "racist;" and say church leaders had a moral imperative to condemn him. On Sunday, they backtracked and challenged other senators' descriptions of the remarks.

Connecticut doesn't make list for new Amazon headquarters
Several said they don't want their competitors to know what they're offering, a stance that open-government advocates criticized. And the proffered land for the Amazon HQ2 headquarters was in an area, LeBreton Flats, that is bogged down in development talks.

Perdue on Sunday described as a "gross misrepresentation" reports that Trump used the vulgarity. Additionally, Sen. Lindsey Graham told fellow South Carolina Republican Sen.

Graham also lamented that "the discourse right now is pretty low". And in defense of Senator Graham, his "strong words" repeated exactly the words used by the president, which you can not remember.

"I think he is a racist", he said Sunday on ABC's "This Week".

Almost 60 percent of Americans disagree with President Donald Trump's reported comment about immigration from "shithole countries", a new HuffPost/YouGov survey finds, with most considering the statement to be racist.

Republican Sens. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who also attended Thursday's meeting, initially said they did not hear Trump utter the word in question, then revised their account to deny he said it at all. But critics said the move aimed to get the case before a likely more sympathetic group of judges.

"DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our military", Mr Trump said on Twitter.

Paul, an opthalmologist, cited a mission trip Paul made a few years ago to Haiti and Central America as evidence of where Trump's heart is when it comes to Haiti.

The conclusion we are expected to make, it seems, is that if the United States was to adopt a purely merit-based system, immigrants would not come from these countries - they would come from countries like Norway, and immigrants from these Norway-like countries would not put pressure on blue-collar USA workers because they would be highly skilled and, more importantly, they wouldn't be a drain on the system because they would be economically self-reliant. "Trump International Golf Club is a spectacular golf course", he wrote several weeks later, after another "great day of fun playing with @POTUS".
