Debate swirls around Trump's comments at DACA meeting

Debate swirls around Trump's comments at DACA meeting

"Don't give my number out, but call me", Graham said, a reference to Trump publicizing the senator's cell phone number in 2015 when each were seeking the GOP presidential nomination. "President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile, and racist". "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed". Durbin, D-Ill., of distorting what the president had said at the meeting, which included more than a half-dozen lawmakers. People briefed on the conversation say that during the meeting the president also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the U.S.

So what did Donald Trump accomplish besides adding a new word to the presidential lexicon by earthily sorting out those parts of Earth where immigrants should and shouldn't come from? And two groups - the Resist Trump Tuesdays and the Georgia Alliance for Social Justice - plan a Tuesday rally at his office to slam his shifting stance on Trump's remarks.

"In 2013, Senator Durbin also made the same accusation against a Republican leader in a meeting with President Obama, and said that. he chewed out the president, it was so disrespectful to President Obama, we couldn't even have the meeting", Perdue said. But she said she didn't "dispute the president was using tough language".

Jackson says Mr. Trump's 30 out of 30 score means there's no indication that Mr. Trump has any cognitive issues.

Trump and fellow Republicans have disputed public accounts of the discussion. Rather, it's because he made those derogatory remarks about nations with populated predominantly by people of color while insisting the USA should be welcoming immigrants from Norway, which has an overwhelmingly white population.

Senator David Perdue and Senator Tom Cotton issued a joint statement almost a day after Trump's remarks, insisting they "do not recall the President saying those comments specifically".

He changed course Sunday, however, saying it was a line cooked up by Sen.

Over the weekend, Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC were mistaken in indicating that was the case.

"The discourse right now is pretty low.

I don't believe a majority of Americans agree with the president, whichever word is used".

"I'm telling you he did not use that word, George".

Cotton told CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the word used - "and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was". Graham said. "It doesn't mean that they're black or white, rich or poor". Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

"I think he is a racist", Lewis continued, adding that he can not "in good conscience" attend Trump's State of the Union address later this month. The administration announced the end of DACA in September, with recipients beginning to lose their status in early March.

There is courageous talk about Democrats forcing a shutdown over the issue, but it's going to be hard to get enough Senate Democrats on board that strategy (especially red-state Democrats). "I don't think you can do DACA without border security". The deadline for passing a government spending bill is this Friday.

"I think I know why".

Senator Paul said that he can support a compromise on DACA, and he's been offering one to the Democrats for six months, but has been rejected.

"We have a lot of sticking points but they're all Democrat sticking points", he said.
