UN African Ambassadors Take Issue With Trump's Reported Racist Comments

While national attention is devoted to parsing Mr Trump's language, some 800,000 young adults who were brought to the United States without documentation as children, known as Dreamers, are still facing the uncertainty and danger of deportation.

Trump said he used tough language but not the term attributed to him by some of those present when he spoke, adding: "I am not a racist".

In a nod to the government shutdown, Bryant's Sanders tells the reporters, "If you want to blame somebody for the shutdown, blame Senator Chuck Schumer, hashtag 'Schumer shutdown.' Please let's get it trending, guys".

Cotton initially said, in a statement shortly after the meeting, that he "did not recall" Trump making any offensive comments.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied, "We don't need more Haitians'".

Nielsen, under oath, said she "did not hear" the word "s--hole", during an exchange with Sen.

That and comments critical of Haitian immigrants by Trump were first reported by the Washington Post and confirmed by Sens.

Booker, who like Harris is a potential presidential candidate, said he believes Nielsen "lied under oath" when she said she can't remember Trump's comment on immigration, speaking on CBS This Morning following her appearance.

The reverberations kept coming Monday.

Former United States of America's ambassadors to Nigeria, John Campbell and James Entwistle, as well as 76 other ex-ambassadors to 48 African nations have flayed US President Donald Trump's referring to the continent as "shithole". But he has been widely condemned in many African countries and by worldwide rights organisations. Lacking the experience and focus to be effective as a normal president, he lashes out at rivals while forcing supporters into ever more humiliating forms of debasement.

Preaching at a church service in Enugu on Sunday, Ugwu said, "Donald Trump is the only leader who can tell African leaders the bitter truth as he does not care about political correctness".

Durbin said after the Oval Office meeting that Trump's words to the senators were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

Carnage - in the form of damage to the rule of law - is impossible to ignore when the president tampers with the Federal Bureau of Investigation; blithely dismisses evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 election; and relentlessly attacks the free press.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the USA after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people briefed on the conversation.

"We will not let Trump or his administration forget these words when we vote this year or in 2020", Sharpton said. Graham said Republicans are "naïve" to think they can ultimately get Democrats to go along with any GOP plan to fund the military for a year while delaying action on DACA.

Difference is all in the putts. "I holed the putts on the back nine, ten, 12, 13, 15, 16, the up-and-down on 18". To sort of validate your position as the Player of the Year so early on is really satisfying in a way".
