Trump Insists He's The 'Least Racist Person'

US President Donald Trump has said that he is "not a racist" despite reports of his derogatory comments about immigrants from Haiti and Africa.

"When I went to Haiti a few years ago I went on a medical mission trip and we did cataract surgery for 200 people who were largely blind before their surgery", Paul said.

Trump made that declaration in the wake of his recent comments about Haiti and African countries.

The president is also accused of questioning the need to admit more Haitians to the U.S., saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

"The commander in chief in an Oval Office meeting referring to people from African countries and Haitians with the most vile and vulgar language, that language festers".

In comments to reporters later, Trump attempted to shift blame for the failure to reach a deal onto Democrats, whom he accused of failing to negotiate in good faith.

Meanwhile, here's what some African-Americans said about Durbin's manufactured outrage over Trump's "chain migration" stance. "He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly", he said. The incident occurred when senators in Trump's office were discussing measures to protect immigrants in the United States. Trump, who has taken a hard stance against illegal immigration, announced past year that he will end the program unless Congress comes up with a solution by March.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied, "We don't need more Haitians'". "He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we're going to do both", Jackson said. Tom Cotton said in a statement that they "do not recall the President saying those comments specifically". "Trump offered a vague denial in a tweet on Friday, and not until Cotton and Perdue spoke on Sunday did another participant challenge whether Trump had used the word "sh**hole", the Post reported. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and some Republicans. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, were mistaken in indicating earlier that that was the case. "And in a defense of Senator Graham, his strong words repeated exactly the words used by the President, which you can not remember". "And I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Perdue said on ABC's "This Week".

"A cognitive screening exam using the Montreal Cognitive Assessment was normal, with a score of 30 over 30", he said.

The Illinois Democrat says he and a handful of other senators who crafted a bipartisan immigration deal are working to win over additional supporters. Durbin this week said "any attempt to kill immigration reform probably has (White House senior adviser Stephen) Miller's fingerprints on it".

The president has denied the claims, saying it was was "made up" by Democratic lawmakers to push a narrative. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military".

He said Trump now "doesn't have a dedicated, defined exercise program", but added the president's diet has improved since he moved into the White House. Never said "take them out". Made up by Dems.' Mr Trump wrote, 'I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

The senator also suggested, if the White House has a recording of the meeting, it should be released to the public. The news anchor also addressed Trump supporters.

In a tweet on Sunday, Trump said the Obama-era immigration programme "DACA" is "probably dead", despite the federal government resumed accepting applications for the same on Saturday.
