I want immigrants to come from everywhere: Donald Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump vehemently denied on Sunday that he was a racist, after his vulgar disparagement of African countries and Haiti complicated a bipartisan deal on immigration. Republican Lindsay Graham of SC supported his version.

As a result, the Mission said, "there is a serious need for dialogue" between the Trump administration and African countries. Durbin, in the process: "I certainly didn't hear what Sen".

"If the way you say things is so inflammatory that people can't hear your message, it is not helpful". Dick Durbin, who attended, and others who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorized to describe it publicly. On Sunday he told reporters he was "the least racist person you will interview". Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., thought they had a deal before the White House meeting, according to news reports. There appears to be little difference in meaning between the two words.

"I don't believe that a majority of Americans agree with the president, whichever word is used". "This is an important issue, he's passionate about it, he's not going to apologize for trying to fix our immigration system".

Trump pre-emptively blamed Democrats yesterday for any failure to reach a deal to protect those covered under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that he rescinded a year ago, saying that Democrats just want to shut the government down. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military" Durbin went public on Friday saying that Trump used the word sh*thole when talking about African nations.

Brought to the USA illegally as children and granted temporary status under former president Barack Obama, Trump ended the program for so-called "Dreamers" in September. The program is slated to expire in March unless Congress acts.


The South Carolina lawmaker took umbrage not with Trump's alleged comments but rather with his change of attitude, which put the kibosh on all of the goodwill he had accumulated after Tuesday's immigration meeting, adding that Trump must have gotten "really bad advice" from his staff. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Durbin and other senators met with Trump in the Oval Office on Thursday to discuss legislation to protect young immigrants known as "Dreamers" from deportation.

DURBIN: Do you recall that the "strong language" he used repeated exactly what the president had said prior to that?

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said that he doesn't always agree with President Trump.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, another senator in the White House meeting - who now claims Trump never said the words in question - said Nielsen backed his version.
