Sometimes Trump sounds like a racist

Americans are taking advantage of this new climate of economic growth and I look forward to continuing our success together.

But Durbin, the only Democrat in the room, stood by the reported quotes word-for-word, and Graham, who had confirmed the reported words to South Carolina GOP Sen.

Trump is reported to have made the remark in reference to Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries as "shithole" nations during a White House meeting on immigration reform last Thursday.

"I did not hear that word used, no sir", DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen responded in what was an, at times, contentious Senate hearing with two of the senators who were also in that meeting.

With his words, Trump has turned this into something common what was once scandalous and egregious, what former extremists used to say behind closed doors. But she said she didn't "dispute the president was using tough language".

"They'll never report that African-American unemployment is at the lowest it has ever been", Trump said, referring to black unemployment falling in December to the lowest level on record, 6.8 percent.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Now President Trump, who campaigned heavily on immigration fears, has to dance a delicate foxtrot between the demands of his hyper-conservative political base and his need to win enough Democratic votes to pass a bipartisan immigration deal.

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.

Haiti has been a particular focus for church missions since the catastrophic natural disaster in 2010 that killed roughly 200,000 people.

He said that any attempt to defend or excuse Trump's remarks by other Christians was "an indefensible performance of pharisaical moral gymnastics". "Sometimes he says these things which are silly, or he doesn't really mean them. but he's definitely not racist, I'm sure of that".

Kelly has been leading the White House's efforts to reach a deal to give legal status to undocumented immigrants who will soon no longer be protected by the expiring DACA protections, while also increasing border security funding.

President Donald Trump, accompanied by Majority Leader in the House, Kevin McCarthy, Republican for California, speaks to reporters upon arriving at a dinner at the Trump International Gulf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, on January 14, 2018.

Nielsen surely would have preferred to be in the fjords of Norway, or just about anywhere, to where she was Tuesday: facing questions from both Durbin and Graham, whose integrity she had challenged with her dubious account.

"We appreciate that he, as one of our candidates for statewide offices, is out there on the frontlines calling out the governor and calling out Trump", Morgan said.

'She didn't remember Lindsey Graham, who challenged the president on his vile words yesterday.

Under an order signed by President Trump, the program ends March 5.

'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used.
