"The President thinks we can get a lot of that done in one year and I agree with him. I am not a racist". "That I can tell you". He has denied making the statements as well as ensuing accusations that he is racist.

Donald Trump is unfit to be president.

Both took to social media, where they blasted Trump's remarks.

I'm not saying Haitian immigrants are a problem. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" Many on the world's second most populous continent reached for their smartphones, long-practiced in defending it from easy stereotypes.

A group of Republican and Democratic senators has been working for months to craft legislation that would protect 700,000 young adults who were brought into the country illegally as children and later shielded from deportation under a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.
