Graham himself would say only that "I said my piece directly" to the president and that "I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals".

US President Donald Trump had a normal score on a cognitive exam and is in excellent health, although he could benefit from a lower-fat diet and more exercise, the White House physician said on Tuesday (local time). "I'm sure of that". While Sen. Dick Durbin has confirmed the president said this DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Sen.

Nielsen's comments came five days after the president ignited what Sen.

United States President Donald Trump insists he is "not a racist" in response to reports he described immigrants from Haiti and Africa as coming from "shithole countries".

Several people who were at the meeting last week or familiar with the discussions, said Trump disparaged those countries in vulgar, racially tinged terms.

Democrats said the negotiated plan addressed Trump priorities, including $2.7 billion for additional border security funding.

The internal debate in the West Wing is over whether Trump said "s***hole" or "s***house". One person who attended the meeting told aides they heard the latter expletive, while others recalled the president saying the more widely reported "s-thole", according to a person briefed on the meeting but not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. They said Trump expressed a preference for immigrants from countries like Norway, which is overwhelmingly white.

Responding to Democrats' assertions that Trump's comments were "racist", Sanders calls the claim "outrageous", citing their previous embrace of Trump. Lindsey Graham were working out; two hours later, the pair reportedly arrived at the White House to find Trump surrounded by immigration hardliners like Cotton and raring for a fight.

However, White House officials including Chief of Staff John Kelly, who formerly served at the Department of Homeland Security secretary, and Stephen Miller, the president's senior adviser on policy, were against what Durbin and Graham were touting. But by Sunday, Trump was telling anyone who would listen that he is "not a racist", and that he hadn't actually made the "shithole" remark. Republicans set multiple fires that they can not put out.

Yeah, that's all good and all, but let the record show once again that Durbin has done exactly what he accused his Republican colleagues of doing regarding WH meetings: lie about them.

An Opel Astra auto was later found burned in the suburbs of Mitrovica...thought to be the same vehicle used while shooting. He was shot five times in the chest, Efe news agency reported, quoting Serbian state TV.

But the chances for a deal seemed to be much worse now than a week ago, when the President in a Tuesday meeting had told lawmakers to do all they could to reach an immigration agreement.

"I think it's important to understand what the MOCA does and doesn't tell you", Columbia University psychiatrist Dr. Paul Appelbaum told Newsweek.

McConnell's deference to the White House comes after Trump has already said he would defer to Congress, telling lawmakers they would come up with a DACA solution "and I'm going to sign that solution".

"Is the president realistic when he says he wants $ 20 billion, so he can build the wall in one year?" he asked Nielsen.

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