Trump blames US Senator Durbin for blowing immigration deal

Donald Trump has been lambasted for his reported remarks Donald Trump has been lambasted for his reported remarks

Trump was said to have uttered "s-thole" during last Thursday's conversation in the Oval Office, a version backed up by Sen.

"He's the least racist person I've ever met in my entire life", Trump said, adding that the accusations his father is racist are "total nonsense".

"Africans and Haitians come from "shithole" countries?" "I don't dispute that the president was using tough language".

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., angrily criticized Nielsen's comments, telling her during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing: "Your silence and your amnesia is complicity".

There is internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse". Durbin said the president used that language repeatedly.

Republican leaders found themselves growing mute or amnesiac amid the blowback from Trump's reportedly racist statements. He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once". There appears to be little difference in meaning between the two words.

In a separate interview with the TV station WIS on Monday, Graham urged Trump to find a "bipartisan solution" for about 800,000 young undocumented immigrants who are facing deportation after a White House decision to cut off their protections by ending the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Senator Lindsey Graham said Trump was on board early last week with a tentative "compassionate" deal between Democrats and Republicans to guarantee the status of almost 700,000 "Dreamers" - people who came to the United States illegally as children and are now threatened with expulsion.

Senators Richard Durbin and Lindsey Graham thought they were going to meet privately with President Trump about their bipartisan DACA deal.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Graham called Trump a "race-baiting xenophobic, religious bigot" and Trump still is, as he begins the second year of serving as President of the United States acting like he's the president of the Confederate States, instead.

When Mr Durbin was challenged about his version of what term Mr Trump used, the IL senator said: "I stand by every word I said about what was said". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" "We request that states endeavour to compete with the world in terms of a range of more positive initiatives in human rights, development and economics".

Democrats and Republicans at odds as government shutdown looms
Vice President Mike Pence is also scheduled to leave Washington Friday evening for his three-country swing to the Middle East. Trump suggested the country "needs a good shutdown". "The Democrats seem to be willing to increase military spending".

Illinois Sen. Richard Durbin, the only Democrat at the Oval Office meeting on immigration, said emphatically that Trump had spoken the words "shithole nations".

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the US after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the discussion.

U.S. Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, and David Perdue, of Georgia, have also said Durbin misrepresented the president's statements.

Meanwhile, the Justice Department on Tuesday said it would take the "rare step" of asking the Supreme Court to overturn a judge's ruling and allow the Trump administration to dismantle DACA if Congress doesn't act.

A sign opposing Trump read "Fake news, Fake President". Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private conversation.

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

Still, Ruge and Msimang agree that the Trump administration is ignoring clear data if it thinks people who immigrate to the USA from poor countries take more than they give.

Nielsen, who was also in that meeting, was now under oath, and she wiggled every which way to excuse Trump without perjuring herself: "I did not hear that word used".

The contentious comments came as Durbin was presenting details of a compromise immigration plan that had money for a first installment of the president's long-sought border wall. It's less about the vulgarity and more that he seemed to say, "Why can't we have immigrants from Norway as opposed from African countries?"

"I know what was said and I know what I said", Graham told the Post and Courier in Charleston, S.C. "As he was on his on seventh speed of the night, they were in the back, not speaking in front of 30,000 people, seven times in a row in four different states", he continued. But let's also remember that more than 300,000 people of Haitian descent live in South Florida, and they are his constituents, too.
