Trump accuses Democrat of undermining trust on immigration

Her testimony infuriated Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, including New Jersey Sen. "It was a meeting of 12 people".

The HuffPost/YouGov poll consisted of 1,000 completed interviews conducted January 11-12 among USA adults, using a sample selected from YouGov's opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult US population.

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

"We shouldn't be asking immigrants to prove their worth, when this country seems to be unworthy of them", she said.

"Is the President realistic when he says he wants $20 billion so he can build the wall in one year?" asked Sen. Lindsey Graham did not dispute it, Cotton and Sen.

The White House has not substantively disputed accounts of the episode, in which Trump is said to have used the term "s--hole" to describe African countries of origin for potential immigrants to the U.S. The revelations, semi-denials and continuing comments have cast a pall over the White House's legislative agenda, brought the country closer to the brink of a government shutdown and sparked worldwide outrage.

Pastor Cyrus Geoffrey Rod, founder of Dominion Faith Church - Ntinda has reacted to the development saying Africa should not be offended by Trump's comment for the "truth is brutal, severe and demanding".

Republican Sens. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who also attended, initially said they did not hear Trump utter the word in question, then revised their account to deny he said it at all.

It said Phoebe Crane, a 70-year-old white woman visiting from IN, waved a hot pink sign announcing: "Proud Grandparent of a Haitian!"

Graham did not name names, but moments later noted that White House chief of staff John Kelly, whose tough views of immigration are well-known, is a member of the president's staff.

President Donald Trump says he wants immigrants to come to the US from "everywhere", despite having said behind closed doors that he'd prefer more immigrants from countries like Norway and not Africa.

A confidant of Trump told The Associated Press that the president spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction to his remarks. I'll call the White House and see if we can set up a meeting?'

And on Monday he tweeted that Mr Durbin had "totally misrepresented what was said". 'Must list" for migrants: "skills, English, love for US The Trump administration wants to admit immigrants who have skills, talent and can speak English, a top official has said, giving insight into the proposed merit-based system that may benefit individuals from countries like India. "We deserve an apology from the President", Metayer said. And let me also say, is that their defense, that S-House is acceptable, S-Hole he would never say?

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the only Democrat in the room, had confirmed that Trump did in fact say "shithole" on Friday, and went on to avow that Trump "said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist..." "I don't [know] either and I'm going to find out". "And I know, and I know what Dick Durbin has said about the President's repeated statements is incorrect".

"We should push for the best deal we can get, but we shouldn't let the ideal be the enemy of the good", said Sen.

What did the president allegedly say? Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said she did not recall "that exact phrase". Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private conversation.

Trump has said he is ready and willing to make a deal to help the Dreamers, but he has insisted that funding for border security, including a wall along the US border with Mexico that he promised as a presidential candidate, be included in any legislative package. Avoid confirming or denying what the president might have said, referring to it instead as an "alleged comment".
