Donald Trump Compounds His "Shithole Countries" Bigotry with Lies

Donald Trump Compounds His

President Donald Trump questioned why the United States would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as "shithole countries," according to two sources familiar with the comments.

"President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile, and racist", Durbin told television reporters.

Durbin attended an event in Chicago Friday and then held a press conference on the president's comments afterward.

"What the president said is offensive and doesn't reflect who we are as a country", Murkowski said in a post on Facebook.

In the closed-door meeting, lawmakers were discussing legal protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

As Fredericks was taken offscreen, Lemon said: "I was going to let him speak, until you doubly insulted me". The president used vulgar language to describe Haiti and African nations.

Ryan Says Entitlement Reform Not Likely This Year
He was not on the same page, however, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who rejected the idea just before Christmas. The White House meeting on immigration included a bipartisan group of senators.

Trump disputed the reports in a tweet Friday morning, although he did not directly deny using the word.

"If the remarks attributed to President Trump are accurate, they have no place in our public discourse", said the statement from Speaker Richard Corcoran, Speaker-designate Jose Oliva, Speaker pro tempore Jeanette Nuñez, Republican Leader Ray Rodrigues, Democratic Leader Janet Cruz, Democratic Leader-designate Kionne McGhee and others. Made up by Dems. The newspaper also repeated the claim first reported in a New York Times story in December that Trump had said once Nigerians immigrants had seen America, they would never "go back to their huts". I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he added. To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words.

Stephen Colbert's "Late Show" monologue also took on Trump's latest controversy.

Trump said the USA should instead welcome more people from countries such as Norway. In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals.

Trump announced last fall that he would end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but gave Congress until March 5 to find a way to continue it.

Since Trump lies so easily and has previously called himself the planet's "least-racist person", there might seem to be little point in pressing him to answer Ryan's question.
