President Trump says he is 'not a racist' after 'sh*thole' comment

Share

Trump began early Sunday morning in Palm Beach County with tweets blasting The Wall Street Journal for what he called incorrect reporting of his comments on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Without explicitly denying using that word, Trump lashed out at the Democratic senator, who said Trump uttered it on several occasions.

Trump was accused of describing African countries and Haiti as "shitholes" during an Oval Office meeting last week with a bipartisan group of six senators. "The folks from DACA should know the Democrats are the ones that aren't going to make a deal".

One person briefed on the Thursday meeting said when Durbin got to Haiti, Trump began to ask why we want people from Haiti and more Africans in the USA and added that the U.S. should get more people from countries like Norway.

The bill would extend the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, which protects young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children from deportation.

The South Carolina Republican says White House chief of staff John Kelly is "a fine man, but he's part of the staff". Republican Sen. Cotton and Sen. Trump also reportedly said the US should admit more people from countries such as Norway.

In a hearing Tuesday, Graham said Trump expressed openness to an immigration deal, only to reject it hours later.

The internal debate in the West Wing is over whether Trump said "s***hole" or "s***house".

Republican Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia appeared on political talk shows on Sunday.

Trump has not clarified to aides what he said.

The reverberations kept coming Monday. "I stand behind every word that I said".

"I think we have a lot of sticking points but they are all Democrat sticking points".

When she was asked about accusations that Trump is unstable and shouldn't be in charge of America's vast nuclear arsenal, she parroted his own claim that he's a "stable genius". Trump also denied that he had spoiled chances for an immigration overhaul in Congress by using a derogatory term to describe few poor countries.

"They know better and if they are trying to rescue the White House by this distinction by "hole" and 'house, ' that is a thin reed to try to create a rescue operation", he later said.

Rupert Colville, a spokesperson for the United Nation High Commissioner for Human Rights, condemned Trump's characterisation of the two countries as "s**tholes" during a meeting on Thursday with lawmakers on a bipartisan immigration deal, Efe news agency reported. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The president's former partner also said she had never been treated badly during the pair's marriage, insisting thing were only nasty when there were lawyers involved and stating that once the financial aspect of their divorce had been agreed upon, the pair became friends. "Made up by Dems". Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Reports that Durbin "revealed why he lied" about Trump's comment are false.

"Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up", Gupta said.

"We should push for the best deal we can get, but we shouldn't let the ideal be the enemy of the good", said Sen.

A judge in California ruled last week that DACA would continue past the March deadline while litigation continued against the Trump administration's decision to rescind the program.
