Sen. Durbin disputes Republicans' account of what Trump said

Sen. Durbin disputes Republicans' account of what Trump said

It seems absolutely hypocritical that now all of a sudden they don't want border security.

And Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of SC, who was also present at the Oval Office meeting last week, said the episode had devolved into an "s-show".

But Trump rejected that proposal during a meeting with Graham, Sen.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., was candid and frank Tuesday when he tried to explain the uproar over what President Donald Trump may or may not have said during a bipartisan immigration meeting last week.

"The president ran hot, I think I know why". And if you want to take it that further step, I'll take the heat, I don't care.

Trump has not clarified to aides what he said, but told reporters on Sunday night in Florida that comments attributed to him "weren't made".

If you look past the language, the president's assertion is a valid one concerning the skill values brought to this country. A senior GOP source familiar with the matter told CNN that instead of hearing the President say "sh-hole" during the meeting, some Republicans actually heard "sh-house". Indeed, it is precisely because of Trump's anti-illegal-immigration bona fides that he may be able to deliver what Republican and Democratic presidents before him could not. "I don't [know] either and I'm going to find out".

The US President has since refuted the claims. "In terms of that meeting, I'm focused on one thing - not that meeting - but on making sure that those who are being protected by DACA. have a future in America".

"He's very stable, very focused, very organized", Ivana Trump said, when asked about Michael Wolff's controversial book Fire and Fury, which documented a White House in perpetual turmoil. We're ready to go.

Congress has until Friday to pass a spending bill to avoid a government shutdown.

Several Democratic representatives have said they intend to skip the president's State of the Union address later this month over the comments, accusing the president of racism.

This drama would be more entertaining were it not for the 800,000 immigrants whose fate under the protections of President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program hangs in the balance.

The United States occupied Haiti between 1915 and 1934.

FEC records, which require disclosing campaign expenditures over $100, show that 24 groups backing candidates for Congress held events, majority fundraisers, at Trump properties.

"Senator Cotton and Senator Perdue should remember a word as gross as that in the course of a conversation with the president of the United States", he added. "I stand by every word that I have said". She said "others in the room were also using tough language".

Trump has drawn criticism at home, from Republicans and Democrats and from overseas for the comments attributed to him.

While addressing a crowd as the election came to a close, Hillary Clinton used the word "deplorable" to describe the supporters of the former host of "The Apprentice", with conservative media running with the story in an attempt to push the narrative that she was out of touch with the American people. "Your silence and your amnesia is complicity", said Booker. Deals can't be made when there is no trust! The only way to fight it is to first call it what it is, wherever we see it.
