Republican senator insists Trump didn't disparage Haiti, African nations with profane remark

Democrats are demanding an immigration deal that protects undocumented immigrants who entered the country as minors. News outlets should respect their viewers by denying airtime for those with so little respect for the truth. For as little as $3, you can help us.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., responded without stating definitively what the president said. Richard J. 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...

One should rightly wonder, if within a few minutes these two senators couldn't recall the president's words during the meeting, what else did they miss?

"(The President) said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist.

There is internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse".

Mr. Trump's latest comments drew worldwide outrage this weekend, especially leaders from black countries.

Durbin and people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorized to describe it publicly said Trump also questioned the need to admit more Haitians.

"He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country". But the ones on which they did so are particularly egregious, because they offered themselves as witnesses to other senators' supposed dishonor. "This is about a gross misrepresentation". He said Durbin and Republican Sen. "I know what was said and I know what I said".

'I'm telling you he did not use that word, George, and I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation.' Perdue told anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week.

Schumer explained, "His other way of negotiating is saying, 'Here's how I want it".

On Face The Nation Sunday, Cotton denied ever hearing that language. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

"Yes, please record all future meetings", Kimmel pleaded.

Word of Trump's comments threatened to upend delicate negotiations over resolving the status of hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children. Trump announced a year ago that he will end the Obama-era DACA program unless lawmakers come up with a solution by March. The program shielded these immigrants, often referred to as "Dreamers", from deportation and granted them permits to work. I'm guessing Jennifer Rubin is on the long list of people, including employees of the Arkansas Times, to whom Coton and his taxpayer-paid "press" aide won't speak. Yes, sure. And what does this administration really think about the ability of Haiti, Nigeria and El Salvador and Muslim countries to produce meritorious entrants? He said Democratic Sen.
