Trump blames US Senator Durbin for blowing immigration deal

Asked what he thinks about people who think he is racist, Trump said, "No, No".

"I think somebody on his staff gave him really bad advice between 10 o'clock to 12 o'clock on Thursday", Graham said.

"In response to the comments made by President Trump on Thursday about countries including Africa and Haiti, please Join Mayor Bill de Blasio in denouncing Trump at a rally at Time Square on Monday".

The debate continued to play out Tuesday as Washington was gripped with uncertainty over whether the government would shut down at midnight Friday, when temporary government funding is set to run out, in the absence of a deal on immigration and other matters. The president also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the US, according to people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorized to describe the meeting publicly. While it hardly would change Trump's meaning, the difference is said to be the basis for Cotton and Perdue to deny the president said what Durbin claimed.

US President Donald Trump has said he was not a racist after he was criticized over his "sh**hole" characterisation of African countries.

The Pretoria embassy is at present one of many around the world with no ambassador as a result of the slow progress of the Trump administration in nominating replacements for Obama-era ambassadors.

Cotton told CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the word used - "and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was".


Democrats accused Republicans of selective amnesia as Cabinet member Kirstjen Nielsen testified Tuesday under oath that she "did not hear" Trump use a certain vulgarity to describe African countries.

Durbin said the White House should release any recording of the conversation that might exist.

Trump and some Republicans have said the senators' agreement is insufficient. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. "They twist it. Whatever is said, it comes [out a] totally different way".

Trump wants immigrants who will call people protesting social injustices "Sons of Bitches" and then go to college football games and mouth the words to the National Anthem that they don't know, just like he did. "That's their choice", Durbin said. "He runs the country as a business", she said.

President Donald's Trump's former spouse told the hosts of a United Kingdom morning show on Monday that the president "is definitely not racist".

Trump would prefer more immigrants who look like those "Very fine people" who marched in Charlottesville carrying torches as they shouted racist and anti-Semitic chants.

She said the news upset her parents, who once met Vice President Pence and told him they were praying for him.
