Trump Clears The Air On What Types Of Immigrants He Wants

"I am not a racist".

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in the Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin told reporters. In a followup appearance on Lemon's program, Trump exclaimed, "I am the least racist person you've ever met".

The scandal erupted after closed-door White House talks on an immigration deal on Thursday, in which Donald Trump allegedly made some derogatory remarks describing some immigrants as coming from "shithole" countries referring to Africa and Haiti.

Trump said he was only expressing what many people think but won't say about immigrants from economically depressed countries, according to a person who spoke to the president as criticism of his comments ricocheted around the globe.

"He said, 'Haitians? Do we need more Haitians?' And then he went on when we started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure".

"The president of the United States is exhausted of so many black people coming to this country", his colleague Anderson Cooper said. Mr Durbin said the remarks were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

According to a White House pool report, the president told reporters, "No".

President Donald Trump plans to finish his weekend stay in South Florida this afternoon, but he should be back in town Friday. But their people, their people are good people and they're part of us. The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel.

"The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it". On Sunday, they backtracked and challenged other senators' descriptions of the remarks. He said Durbin and Republican Sen. He said Mr Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC were mistaken in indicating that was the case. "I use those words advisedly. And I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Perdue said on ABC's "This Week". "I don't know in which context they were made".

"Jesus Christ himself, a person of color, an immigrant, would not be welcome in Trump America", Geren wrote on her Facebook page. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

United Nations officials and government ministers from the countries mentioned have condemned Trump, describing them as "racist".

The Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program shields those individuals, often called the Dreamers, from deportation.

We expect President Trump to speak strongly and passionately on the Key issue of immigration, and the Democrats to try to derail his momentum to a resolution of the issue. He elaborated on the way to dinner Sunday night with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., saying Democrats "don't want to help the DACA people".

Efforts to extend the program are further complicated because it could make a funding bill to avert a government shutdown due Friday more hard.

"It might happen once or twice without CNN executives being aware, but it wouldn't continue if they were not OK", former CNN executive Jon Klein said.

"We're ready, willing and able to make a deal on DACA, but I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal ..."

Basketball star LeBron James said Trump's example emboldened people with racist views.

"Now", she said, "this is how he treats us".
