Data On Canadian Immigrants From 'Shithole' Countries Might Surprise Trump

Gwynne Dyer International columnist and writer

Just over one-quarter of Americans said they agreed with the comment, while 58 percent said they disagreed. "He cares about the economy".

Trump told reporters on his way to a dinner Sunday evening that "I don't know if there is going to be a shutdown" at the end of the week. David Perdue of Georgia - defended the president on Sunday, saying they couldn't recall if Trump made such comments.

Dick Durbin asserted Tuesday that President Donald Trump called certain African nations "sh-hole countries" during a bipartisan meeting on immigration reform at the White House last week, despite evolving explanations from some Republicans.

Nicaragua on Monday joined the global chorus of criticism directed at US President Donald Trump over his reported slur against some poor nations.

Durbin, a Democratic senator from IL, said, however, that Trump did use "hate-filled, vile and racist" language in the meeting, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted, using a nickname to needle the IL senator.

A CBS News poll released Sunday found that 70 percent of Americans are in favor of DACA and even among Trump's supporters, a slim majority also support the program. The White House said there are no tapes.

Donald Trump did not use the term "shithole" to describe developing countries during a meeting on immigration, instead using the word "shithouse", it has been claimed.

South Africa vs India, 2nd Test, Day 4
Dean Elgar was batting on 36 and AB de Villers on 50. "If we get early wickets tomorrow, the match can be in anybody's favour". Kohli forged a crucial 71-run partnership for the seventh wicket with Ravichandran Ashwin (38) to stabilise the innings.

On a day of remembrance for Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Trump spent time at his golf course with no public events, bypassing the acts of service that his predecessor staged in honor of the civil rights leader. "I want him back".

"I'm not going to vote for a CR, you're destroying the military", Graham said.

In one of the hearing's most dramatic moments, Democratic Senator Cory Booker grew emphatic after Nielsen said she did not want to answer more questions about the language at the meeting. We want security at the border.

The comment about other nations was reportedly made during a bipartisan meeting aimed at finding a compromise deal for Dreamers, young people without legal immigration status who were brought to the United States as children.

Utah congresswoman Mia Love, who is of Haitian heritage, said in a statement: "The president's comments are unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation's values".

Administration officials and lawmakers spent the holiday weekend debating the precise presidential vulgarity used, and moved to cast last Thursday's White House meeting as a salty affair, with expletives flying in all directions.

Democrats have condemned Trump's remarks as "racist", a charge Sanders rejected as "outrageous".

The alleged remarks were during a closed-door bipartisan meeting on immigration policy where the six senators pitched a deal to save a discontinued program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
