Take the mental test Trump just aced

Take the mental test Trump just aced

Trump has been accused of using a vulgar word to describe African countries during an Oval Office meeting last week with a bipartisan group of six senators.

"I found no evidence that the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought process", Jackson told reporters during Tuesday's White House briefing.

"I know he's auditioning for 2020, I understand that, but he was disrespectful, and he did "mansplain" to her", McDaniel said, referring to speculation that Booker may run for president.

After lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador, the president reportedly demanded to know why the United States should accept immigrants from "shithole countries", rather than - for instance - wealthy and overwhelmingly white Norway.

Ivana Trump told the ITV network's morning show that she didn't think Trump "is going to do anything irrational", adding "he's a stable genius, definitely". 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.

The senators Durbin and Graham briefed included Republicans Jeff Flake of Arizona; Michael Bennet of Colorado, and Democrats Chuck Schumer of NY and Bob Menendez of New Jersey.

Republican Sens. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who also attended Thursday's meeting, initially said they did not hear Trump utter the word in question, then revised their account to deny he said it at all.

Trump slammed Durbin in a Twitter post on Monday, saying "Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting".

"While this is the first #MLKDay with an unrepentant & unreconstructed racist in the White House, we are neither intimidated by insult nor tweet - we are prayerful not fearful", he said.

"It's called genetics", Jackson said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, a senior Republican, said that Donald Trump's immigration comments were "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

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

Jackson said Trump encouraged him to speak with reporters about the physical, and to take every question they had.

During the presidential campaign, Trump's long-time personal physician, Harold Bornstein, had declared that Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency". "It doesn't change what they do", Goldstein said.

Both Botswana and Senegal have called on their US ambassadors to express their "displeasure" with Trump's "racist" statements.

On CBS' "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson, interviewing Cotton, asked "Senator, your view on this that (Trump) said this word?"

The truth is, modern Africa, or "sh**hole countries" as US President Donald Trump calls them, are merely a product of their former colonial masters.

Lawmakers are trying to combine some form of relief for DACA immigrants along with enhanced border security, including a wall along the Mexican border, sought by Trump. Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

"He has gone above and beyond what I would consider a requirement to demonstrate his cognitive abilities", Jackson said. The doctor said he would also design a daily exercise program for Trump.
