GOP still struggling with Pres. Trump's remarks on Africa


Still, if Trump was upset by the reports of his language, he took his time in responding to it - enough time to call around to friends see how well the reports of his slurs were playing with his base. Numerous same issues that bedeviled previous presidents now sit unresolved on Trump's desk, including North Korea's nuclear threats and the fate of millions of people living in the US illegally.

During his portion of questioning at the hearing, Graham said in reference to the immigration fight, "This has turned into a "s-show" and we need to get back to being a great country".

President Donald Trump says he wants immigrants to come to the USA from "everywhere", despite having said behind closed doors that he'd prefer more immigrants from countries like Norway and not Africa.

Durbin on Tuesday said he stood by "every word" of his account of the meeting, which he attended alongside Cotton, Sen.

Durbin also told Tapper the last two weeks have been "bizarre", recalling the recently televised meeting between bipartisan members of Congress and Trump, in which Trump agreed to go forward with a permanent legislative solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program as well as comprehensive immigration reform.

Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr., the president and CEO of the National Newspaper Publishers Association, tweeted: "It is a glaring contradiction that as the preparing to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, a national holiday, President Trump utters racist statements against Africa and people of color".

Hannity asked Trump about people "picking" on his family, specifically First Lady Melania Trump and the president's 11-year-old son Barron.

There were a few bright spots on the foreign policy front in 2017: The United States and Russian Federation both dialed back their numbers of nuclear weapons, bringing the global total down, and the number of "free" countries (as scored by nonprofit Freedom House) increased by one. "That's the American Dream".

Republicans struggled to get their stories straight Tuesday as President Donald Trump's Homeland Security secretary became the latest GOP official to offer an inconclusive version of a meeting in which Trump is said to have used vulgar remarks that have been criticized as racist.

Tom Bossert, Mr Trump's homeland security adviser, said the order was created to "keep America safe, including in cyber space". "And let me also say, is that their defense, that S-House is acceptable, S-Hole he would never say?"

Richmond continued: "All of the reservations we have had about negotiating with him on immigration are well-founded".

From unprecedented tax reform to controversial rhetoric, President Donald Trump's first year was marked by extreme highs and lows, depending on whom you ask.

He then said phase two should include the implementation of full border security as well as a pathway to citizenship for the majority of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants, most of whom "are not crooks, drug dealers, rapists, felons". It painted a picture of a chaotic and dysfunctional White House, where the President watches cable news incessantly, eats nothing but fast food and spends copious amounts of his day on "executive time". "Congress must reject this divisive and racially-discriminatory approach to immigration policy". We can not do this with people in charge at the White House who have an irrational view of how to fix immigration.

"For the President to make these remarks just after he was quoted as saying all Haitians have AIDS and Nigerians live in huts demonstrates a consistent pattern of racism and bigotry". Durbin speak up in the meeting?

For reasons unknown - perhaps even to Trump - the president blew up everything.

Addressing the controversy Tuesday on Capitol Hill, Cotton said that his prior remarks ― when he said in a Sunday interview that he "did not hear derogatory comments about individuals or persons" from the president and that the president was mischaracterized ― were accurate. And more than half - 54% - said it was appropriate for the media to repeat Trump's language. "We enjoy a cordial relationship", he said.
