Trump defends self after comments

Patty Aguilar | 19 January, 2018, 14:10

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece ripped accusations that President Trump is a "racist" for speaking in an off-color manner about third world countries. Trump's denial follows days of media obsession over a purported remark he made during a Thursday oval office meeting with bipartisan lawmakers about African countries. Lindsey Graham had suggested cutting back on the number of people participating in the visa lottery program, when the president began to complain about the USA taking immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries.

The individuals spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to describe the meeting publicly.

Certain Republicans have rallied behind Trump, casting doubt on what he said at the meeting with Republican and Democratic lawmakers.

Speaking with reporters while hosting Kazakhstan President, Nursultan Nazarbayev, at the White House on Tuesday, Trump said: "I want them to come in from everywhere".

"What I was struck with frankly, as I'm sure you were as well, was just the general profanity used in the room by nearly everyone".

Young, a former US ambassador to the United Nations, mayor of Atlanta, and Democratic congressman from Georgia, said the president "has a very good education in business, but probably not very good in history".

Ben Marter tweeted Sunday, shortly after Republican Georgia Sen. "And in a defense of Senator Graham, his strong words repeated exactly the words used by the President, which you can not remember".

A growing number of nations are summoning US diplomats in the wake of President Donald Trump's "sh-hole" remark.

Previously, Perdue and Republican Sen.

Kalvi also said that he is going to conduct an emergency meeting following Supreme Court's green signal for 'Padmaavat's release. In such a scenario, it is less likely that these four state governments will do much to restrict the actions of the Karni Sena .

So, last week when Trump disparaged Haitians and referred to African nations as, "sh*thole countries", he already had me at the Central Park Five.

"Credibility is something that's built by being consistently honest over time", Marter wrote on Twitter.

In her statement Wednesday, Nielsen said she is "thoroughly disappointed" that attention keeps being given to the meeting, when "we have serious and urgent border and immigration issues to address".

Trump has denied using the term but acknowledged using "tough" language during the meeting. Sen.

Cotton told CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the word used - "and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was". Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had also confirmed the "shithole" comments as "basically accurate", Perdue dismissed his colleague, saying, "You'll have to deal with him. It's not a stretch to say that Trump is a bigot". I understand that. But I'll tell you this: "I stand by every word I said about what was said and what happened".

He and Republican Sen.

"You can't have an immigration compromise if everybody is out there calling the president a racist", he added.

Also on Sunday, conservative writer Rich Lowry suggested on ABC's "This Week," and a Washington Post reporter tweeted, that some White House aides believe Trump said "shithouse", not "shithole". Their comments were met with widespread skepticism because both Republicans said last week that they "do not recall" if Trump made the comment.
