Want immigrants from everywhere, says US President Donald Trump

Want immigrants from everywhere, says US President Donald Trump

Durbin said Monday the White House should release whatever recording it might have of the meeting.

"It is the dream of a world where people are judged by who they are, not how they look or where they come from", the president said.

Mr Trump said he was "ready, willing and able" to reach a deal to protect illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children from being deported but that he did not believe Democrats wanted an agreement.

She said on Tuesday that numerous people used profanities in an impassioned Oval Office meeting on immigration last week but she did not recall Trump using a specific vulgarity to refer to Haiti and African nations.

"We want to avoid the mass draconian deportation that otherwise will occur to these very courageous and talented young people who have come to our country", Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT said. But she said she didn't "dispute the president was using tough language". It is not true.

U.S. Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), who was in the meeting but originally said he didn't remember Trump using those words, later insisted trump never used the phrase "sh*thole countries", and called Durbin's account of the meeting a "gross misrepresentation".

Hopes were high early last week when Trump held a bipartisan meeting on immigration at the White House.

The Washington Post has since reported Cotton and Perdue heard the words "sh*thouse", and that was the basis for denying Durbin's claim.

Aides to the president are locked in an internal debate over which version of the word the president used to describe certain countries during immigration talks with senators.

Just as Nielsen "imagines" Norwegians are white, I imagine that she, in her denial of the obvious and defense of the indefensible, is the latest Trump sycophant to trash her reputation. "I don't know that changing the word from hole to house changes the impact which this has". We've had a long, ugly history of preferring "European stock" on the grounds that Europeans are more desirable; in fact, they might be whiter, but the assumption that Europeans can become Americanized but Africans or Asians cannot is straight-up racism and belied by decades of immigration experience.

"The president hasn't said he didn't use strong language", press secretary Sarah Sanders said. 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.

After Trump signed the MLK proclamation, he turned his back to the gathered press and walked out of the room like the bully-coward he is, as a reporter repeatedly asked him "are you a racist?".

"He has so many people telling him left and right what to say, what not to say, and maybe it gets confusing". He does not see race - he's the least racist person I have ever met in my entire life.

President Donald Trump, accompanied by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, speaks to members of the media as they arrive for a dinner at Trump International Golf Club in in West Palm Beach, Florida, Jan. 14, 2018.

He was referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects young people who came to the USA illegally as children.

Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., displayed a poster from the dais proclaiming, in big letters, "Trump: Why allow immigrants from "Shithole Countries"?"

The US president was on the receiving end of a firestorm of criticism after allegedly asking why the US should accept people fleeing disasters in Haiti, El Salvador and Africa rather than - for instance - wealthy and overwhelmingly white Norway.

"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?"

Trump has not clarified to aides what he said.
