Trump in 'excellent health', scores 30/30 in cognitive assessment

Athens Limestone MLK celebration celebrates students and a hopeful future

"You've seen the comments in the press".

The remarks, coming after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen addressed senators and told them she "did not hear" the president refer to several nations as "shithole countries", found Graham doubling down on his assertion that the president did indeed insult Haiti and El Salvador, among others.

When Mr Durbin was challenged about his version of what term Mr Trump used, the IL senator said: "I stand by every word I said about what was said".

"I'm not going to get into what I said, but I will tell you, it was a tough meeting", Trump said.

Democratic Senator Senator Dick Durbin, the only Democrat at the January 11 meeting, which Nielsen also attended, asked her how Trump characterized countries in Africa, to which Nielsen said she remembers him calling for a merit-based system. She said "others in the room were also using tough language".

In a meeting on Thursday with some American lawmakers on U.S. immigration policy, Trump reportedly stated that the United States should accept migrants from countries like Norway, not the said "shithole" countries.

President Donald Trump has said he wants immigrants to come from everywhere even as the White House pushes for a merit-based immigration system.

To pour some cold water on the conspiracy theories: Rear Admiral Jackson is a highly decorated Navy physician who was appointed to the White House during President George W. Bush's second term and was kept on by both the Obama and Trump administrations. Then, DACA is revoked.

"No. I'm not a racist", he told reporters on Sunday night in West Palm Beach.

The debate continued to play out on Tuesday as Washington was gripped with uncertainty over whether the government would shut down at midnight on Friday, when temporary government funding is set to run out, in the absence of a deal on immigration and other matters.

Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, confirmed Trump's comments the next day.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, called the current state of immigration negotiations quote an "s-show", and indicated he's been whip sawed by the president's changing position.

"For the Republicans to believe we will get all the defense funding we desperately want and need and we'll deal with the dreamers later, how naïve can you be?"

"We gave you every penny you asked for", Durbin countered.

I mention them all because they deserve to be enshrined in a Hall of Shame.

Silly me. The GOP seems to have made its choice, judging by the weaselly response from most of the Republicans who were in the Oval Office on Thursday when Trump made vile and nakedly racist remarks.

The two Republican senators originally told the press that they did not recall what Trump said.

Trump has said he is open to finding a solution to help the Dreamers.

The contentious comments came as Durbin was presenting details of a compromise immigration plan that had money for a first installment of the president's long-sought border wall. "The biggest loser will be our rapidly rebuilding Military, at a time we need it more than ever", Trump wrote. "That's what struck me", Nielsen said.

Co-host Meghan McCain asked Durbin if publicly disclosing what Trump said hurt any progress being made on a deal on the fate of almost 800,000 Dreamers-immigrants brought into the U.S.as children.
