US President Donald Trump takes on Senator Dick Durbin on 'racial slur'
Homeland Secretary Trump Used'Strong Language
20 January, 2018, 17:03
Senator Dick Durbin, the only Democrat in the meeting room, disputed the President's account.
But Trump has stuck with a vague denial that he used such language, and so far has made no move to apologize, hurting prospects for a deal on DACA and making life uncomfortable for Republicans as they look ahead to midterm elections this year.
Donald's ex-wife previously caused a stir by referring to herself as the "first First Lady" in an apparent dig at Melania Trump.
Trump has been accused of using the word "shithole" to describe African countries during an Oval Office meeting last Thursday with a bipartisan group of six senators.
Meanwhile civil rights activists took aim at the president at a Martin Luther King event in NY.
"Incredible genes, I guess", said Jackson. "At first comes the word of contempt, then threats and then acts", said Nicolas Maduro during a political council of Alba in Caracas.
Afterward Trump insisted in a tweet that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".
"I stick with my original interpretation". Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, indicated that account of the "sh*thole" comments was true, while Sens.
Asked later Monday to respond to the president's tweet, Durbin's office pointed to a statement made on Twitter by communications director Ben Marter. But he left a door open that a deal could be reached with Democrats in Congress.
Cuba also blasted President Trump on Friday, calling his words "racist, denigrating and rude". Some say Trump did not use the word.
On Sunday, the president defended himself, declaring that "I am not a racist". "I'm the least racist person you have ever interviewed". Lindsey Graham of SC was outlining a tentative bipartisan agreement on immigration they hoped Trump would support.
When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied, "We don't need more Haitians'".
While the belief within the medical community is, contra Trump, that exercise is good for you, I did find one study from 2015 published in Circulation magazine that suggested people who exercised strenuously 4-7 times a week were at increased risk for vascular disease when compared to those who exercise strenuously 2-3 times a week. "He didn't just say it one time".
Asked what he thinks about people who think he is racist, Trump said, "No, No".
But Graham said Monday that "my memory hasn't evolved".
When pressed by Lemon on what that actually means, Farris said it could be that perhaps that someone has "said or done some racist things unbeknownst.It makes maybe what you said or done a racist act, but it's not an act of racism".
The Haitians and their supporters shouted, "Our country is not a shithole", according to video posted by WPEC-TV, and engaged in a shouting match with the pro-Trump demonstrators who typically gather on the other side of the street.
He continued: "To those who want to begin to fix a broken immigration system, you're going to get something, too".
The truth of Trump's view on exercise is more complicated than just his pretending that he "get [s] more exercise than people think".
And while Graham said in his interview with the Post and Courier that the meeting with Trump was "disappointing", he said the only way forward was through bipartisan negotiation, including with the president.
The African Union continental body and several African nations have expressed shock and condemnation over Trump's remark.
