I am not a racist: Donald Trump

I am not a racist: Donald Trump

Statements from global and domestic organizations are expressing concern that the USA and its president are going down a racist path. Trump has denied he is a racist and insists he didn't make the reported vulgar remarks. "That I can tell you", he told reporters.

South Africa and Ghana have called on USA diplomats to meet with government officials and address the the president's comments.

United States lawmakers have until Friday to agree on government funding, with temporary measures set to expire. "They want to take money away from our military". The US 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. He shared his response at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach in Florida.

Trump also insisted that he had not made the inflammatory comments in a White House meeting on Thursday, part of a newly aggressive defence and a counterattack on Democrats by the President and his allies. David Perdue (R-Ga.) denied that Trump used that language. He said Democratic Sen.

Asked on Sunday if she thought Trump's comments were racist, Love hesitated before saying "yes".

But by Sunday, their recollections appeared to have sharpened, and Cotton joined Perdue in disputing Durbin's account. "Ask anyone who's dealt with both".

Mr Trump has faced heavy criticism since it was reported last week that he called Haiti and African nations "shithole countries" during a meeting in the Oval Office.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting". Lindsey Graham of SC were mistaken in indicating that was the case.

The U.S. president on Friday denied using such derogatory language. "I hope you are", Lemon said.

On Sunday, Trump blamed Democrats for the break-down in negotiations, writing on Twitter that it was "probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it". The Obama-era program shields these individuals, commonly referred to as "Dreamers", from deportation.

Donald's ex-wife previously caused a stir by referring to herself as the "first First Lady" in an apparent dig at Melania Trump.

Trump last week rejected an immigration deal drafted by a bipartisan group of senators.

Speakers used a bullhorn and chanted, "What do we want?"
