ZIMBABWE: More to worry about than Trump's slur

ZIMBABWE: More to worry about than Trump's slur

Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin is standing by his description of last week's White House immigration meeting at which he and others have said President Donald Trump described African nations with a profanity.

Durbin said after the Oval Office meeting that Trump's words to the senators were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

The Post added that Trump said he would prefer if the United States accepted more immigrants from Norway, which is predominantly white.

'She was an American citizen under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee and she pretended like she didn't remember, she couldn't remember what the President of the United States, the Commander in Chief, her boss was saying, ' Booker said.

"I don't think the president was well-served by his staff", Graham told reporters Tuesday. Durbin around 10:15 a.m. last Thursday, he expressed pleasure with Durbin's outline of a bipartisan immigration pact and praised the high-ranking Illinois Democrat's efforts, according to White #House officials and congressional aides. She says "others in the room were also using tough language". Eighty percent of the people would like to begin to fix the broken immigration system. Does it end with the government shutting down?

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.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, another senator in the White House meeting- who now claims Trump never said the words in question - said Nielsen backed his version.

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

Boss Zinedine Zidane says that Real Madrid will not be making any new signings during the January transfer window. Hazard has scored six times and has made four assists in 21 appearances in the Premier League this season.

Durbin called on Congress to deal with DACA now, instead of trying to tackle a broader immigration proposal. "And we want people who are of like minds to vote", Guillaume said.

The bill would extend the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, which protects young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children from deportation.

Senator Lindsey Graham, another Republican participant, told fellow South Carolina Senator Tim Scott the media reports of the comments were "basically accurate", according to The Post and Courier.

Q Just the Caucasian or white countries, sir? Alsup cited Trump's rhetoric against Mexicans and Latinos during the presidential campaign, specifically calling Mexicans "rapists" and referring to migrants crossing the border as "animals". A fired-up Trump had swung over to the hardline conservatives such as Sen. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private conversation.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied, "We don't need more Haitians'". "And they don't even see that as being wrong", Hannity said.

Left to its own devices, the State Department came up with its own talking points to be used by US missions in Africa working to stem the damage, said a USA official, who wasn't authorized to disclose internal deliberations and demanded anonymity.

Trump himself marked the day with a videotaped speech posted on Twitter that alluded to King's celebrated "I Have a Dream" speech. "Come to think of it, perhaps Trump doesn't weigh as much as one would think because his tiny hands weigh a gram a piece", Gunn tweeted. "... We know what happens when people sit by and are bystanders and say nothing".

Democrats have condemned Trump's remarks as "racist", a charge Sanders rejected as "outrageous".
