Called a Racist, Trump Threatens to Kill DACA Talks

Called a Racist, Trump Threatens to Kill DACA Talks

Durbin said Trump should prove he's not racist by helping the undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S.as children eligible for DACA.

Trump also repeated his claim that Democrats are standing in the way of a deal on DACA. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military" Durbin went public on Friday saying that Trump used the word sh*thole when talking about African nations.

According to reports, Trump decried immigration from "shithole countries", like Haiti and African nations, questioning why the USA should admit people from such countries over immigrants from countries like Norway.

Some also have criticized Durbin for revealing details of a private meeting with the president, but Durbin said he felt compelled to do so when Trump denied using the phrase after the vulgarity was first reported.

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough kicked off his Tuesday show by taking aim at Senators Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) over their support of Donald Trump and his alleged comments about "shithole countries".

One person who attended the meeting told aides they heard the latter expletive, while others recalled the president saying the more widely reported "shithole".

James Kwabena Bomfeh has hailed President Nana Akufo-Addo for standing up to United States President Donald Trump over the latter's unsavory comments about African nations.

During a meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers last week, Trump had expressed frustration over some participants pushing for immigrants from certain "shithole" countries.

Durbin (left) said it doesn't matter what s-word Trump used in the meeting. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., claimed the president used the term and both say they did not hear it.

"President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile, and racist".

"I don't know that changing the word from "hole" to "house" changes the impact", Durbin told reporters Monday.

Fast forward to present day and Trump is now dealing with the backlash to comments he allegedly made while speaking to lawmakers about #Illegal Immigration.

Durbin told the Sun-Times that following the White House meeting, he and Graham went back to Capitol Hill "and we called nearly all, I think all but one of our group, the six that had negotiated".

"I'm not a racist". Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, Graham said.
