DHS secretary used 'hard language' in Trump for immigration meeting

DHS secretary used 'hard language' in Trump for immigration meeting

"It was a meeting of 12 people".

Nielsen said Trump and others in the room used "tough language". "I did not hear that word used", Nielsen told senators. "Did you hear me use profanity?"

HHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen.

Nielsen's comments came five days after the president ignited what GOP Sen. Dick Durbin, who had attended the meeting and said Trump use the "hate-filled" language repeatedly.

Administration officials and lawmakers spent the holiday weekend debating the precise presidential vulgarity used, and moved to cast last Thursday's White House meeting as a salty affair, with expletives flying in all directions.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted, using a nickname to needle the IL senator.

"When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting", Booker told her. "Not only do I trust Dick Durbin, he's a man of huge character, but also Lindsey Graham, who's been a friend and a partner on many things, who has said everything, nothing that is contrary to what has been reported by others that happened in that room".

A confidant of Trump told The Associated Press that the president spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction to his remarks. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The comments have complicated the debate over an immigration deal to protect immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children, and also overshadowed larger spending negotiations ahead of a possible federal government shutdown this week.

In a hearing Tuesday, Graham said Trump expressed openness to an immigration deal, only to reject it hours later. She said: "Why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV".

Asked about Kelly, the South Carolina Republican said the chief of staff is "a fine man, but he's part of the staff".

Durbin said Monday the White House should release whatever recording it might have of the meeting. "With respect to white supremacy, we expanded our prevention efforts in the Department of Homeland Security to ensure we in fact are going after violence of any kind, any kind is not appropriate and I will not allow it to occur if it's within our authority to stop". I understand that. But I'll tell you this: "I stand by every word I said about what was said and what happened".

"Do you recall", Durbin asked her, "that the strong language he used repeated exactly what the president had said prior to that?"

Asked if Norway "is a predominately white country", DHS Sec.

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

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.

The person believes the discrepancy may be why some Republican senators are denying having heard the president say "shithouse".
