Trump in 'excellent health,' doctor says after medical exam

Trump in 'excellent health,' doctor says after medical exam

Mr Trump's comments came as two senators presented details of a bipartisan compromise that would protect DACA immigrants and also strengthen border protections. "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump tweeted after reports of his remarks sparked worldwide outrage with the UN's human rights office calling them "racist" and "shameful".

Facing strong condemnation at home and overseas, US President Donald Trump has denied using the word "s--hole" to describe Haiti and African countries, but kept up criticism of a Senate immigration plan that he said would force the US to admit people from countries that "are doing badly".

But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), whom Durbin said had voiced objection to Trump's comments during the meeting, issued a statement that did not dispute the remarks.

He wrote, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

He said he preferred immigrants from Norway because they were white and had blonde hair, according to press reports, quoting sources who attended the meeting.

Graham said he pushed back at the president - an account that was backed up by Illinois Democratic Sen.

Erol Josue, an artist and priest of voodoo, the religion that launched the 1803 slave revolt, said he was "stunned but not surprised" at Trump's comments.

"I was very proud of him, it took courage for what he did", Durbin said.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh issued a proclamation Friday calling January 12 "Day of Solidarity with Haiti" to celebrate Boston's Haitian community and their contributions to the city on the anniversary of when a devastating quake hit the country.

Senator Durbin said that after yesterday's meeting any hope for a deal "died".

"We're now well into the 21st century, and the president of what is purported to be the most powerful nation on earth just set a new low in our policy", NAN National Vice President the Rev. Nelson B. Rivers III said.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", Shah said in response. There is no transcript or recording of that meeting. "I have not read one of them that is inaccurate", Durbin said during a Friday news conference. "He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Mr Durbin said.

"We view the utterances by the current American President as highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist", it added. He said, 'Oh, that's a good line.' And then when I talked to him about the impact this has on family unification, in a nation that values families with the flag as the most important symbols of our future, they scoffed at this notion.

"Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here?" the president allegedly said.
