Trump says he's no racist, opens DACA door

U.S. President Donald Trump passed a test for signs of dementia and is in overall excellent health, but needs to shed weight by cutting calories, fats and carbohydrates and starting a daily exercise routine, the White House physician said on Tuesday.

The Trump administration announced previous year it would rescind DACA, which allows certain immigrants brought to the US illegally as children to remain here and work without fear of deportation.

Trump has said Durbin misrepresented his comments.

Trump has threatened to end DACA, but he seemed to keep the door open for a deal when he told reporters before dinner on January 14 night: "We're ready, willing and able to make a deal on DACA, but I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal. Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military".

The clamor over President Donald Trump's use of a vulgarity bled into a second week Tuesday as aides took issue with details in accounts of his comments and a Republican senator who was present for the original remark said the situation had become an "s-show".

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

Plenty of aspersions have been cast on Donald Trump's mental capacity and mental health, but the U.S. president has an answer for his critics: a ideal score on a cognitive test that would detect impaired brain function. The path to a deal seems even more complicated after last week's coarse Oval Office conversation, and Trump has accused Durbin of undermining the trust necessary to reach an agreement.


A sizeable crowd of expatriate Haitians, waving their country's flag, gathered near the foot of a bridge leading to Mr. Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, to jeer at Mr. Trump as the motorcade returned from the golf club where the president capped his weekend before returning later Monday to Washington.

"He's very sharp. He's very articulate when he speaks to me", Jackson said. "Why do we need more Haitians?" He also apparently said he wants to exclude Haiti from an immigration reform deal.

"The president asked me to do it", Jackson said. During a almost hourlong press briefing Tuesday, Dr. Jackson said the president does not have heart disease. Jackson said he has "absolutely no concerns" about Trump's cognitive ability or neurological functioning, but nonetheless administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which measures age-related cognitive issues like dementia, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's disease.

"Today, in 2018, we find ourselves at a crossroads: Everything King fought so tirelessly for is under attack once again". He elaborated on the way to dinner with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., saying Democrats "don't want to help the DACA people".

She also appeared to rebut Trump's remarks from earlier in the day.

Brought to the United States illegally as children and granted temporary status under former president Barack Obama, Trump ended the program for so-called "Dreamers" in September.
