Trump's Reported Expletive Hits Home for Connecticut Immigrants

"Haitians fought along United States soldiers in the Revolutionary War, and we continue to be great contributors to American society", Altidor added. At the time, the doctor said Mr. Trump was 6 foot 3 and 236 pounds, which qualifies him as overweight and almost obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The president had been discussing a potential deal with a team of senators that would have restored protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries, the Washington Post and others reported Thursday night.

The NAACP president predicted Trump's remarks will help motivate African-American voters in the 2018 midterm elections, saying the comments are "the language of the '50s and '60s, it is the language of a Ross Barnett and a George Wallace".

In a statement late Thursday, the White House did not dispute the vulgar language reportedly used by Trump during the meeting.

It said the "remarks dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity".

While Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) said "Democrats and Republicans in the Senate made a proposal".

"Is the president racist?"

The TPS program, which was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush in 1990 provides temporary residency for people in the USA from countries that can not receive them either because those countries refuse to take their people back, or because war prevents them from going back to their home countries.

Past presidents are not known to have been tested for mental acuity while in office - including Ronald Reagan, who five years after leaving the White House was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

"If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".

"Those comments are, frankly, disgusting", Lemon continued. Last year, retired boxer Floyd Mayweather, who has voiced support for Trump (and has been to prison for domestic battery), said that Trump "speaks like real men".

Mr Trump is the oldest ever person to be elected for a first term as president, though Ronald Reagan was the oldest ever in office at age 77 by the end of his second term. "He said it", Lemon said. "Hear me out, I know I sound insane". The White House has faced a barrage of questions over his contradictory messages on key policies and an incident last month where he slurred some words while giving a speech. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs", Trump said Friday. "Why are we even talking about locker-room comments from 11 years ago when there are so many important issues at hand?" asked Minnesota state Sen. "But he is a racist".

"Mr. President, are you a racist?"

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a press briefing that full lab results would be ready over the weekend and Trump's Physician Dr. Jackson will attend a press briefing Tuesday to answer questions regarding the president's health.

"Here's why I'm not outraged: People of color warned you", Lemon concluded.

After Trump's infamous "shithole" comment shocked the world, he took Twitter to defend himself and deny all the allegations.

Dick Durbin of IL, the Senate' s No. 2 Democrat, explained that as part of that deal, a lottery for visas that has benefited people from Africa and other nations would be ended, the sources said, though there could be another way for them to apply. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.
