How right-wing people are defending Trump's indefensible 'shithole' remarks

13 January 2018

A day after President Donald Trump reportedly made highly incendiary comments about immigrants and African countries, two Republican senators said they don't recall those vulgar characterizations from the President.

Trump also reportedly followed up the remark by asking why "people from countries like Norway" don't migrate as much to the U.S.

Trump said on Twitter on Friday he merely used "tough" language when discussing a new immigration bill with a group of US senators.

Trump tweets: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Brinkley said Trump was the most racist president since Woodrow Wilson, who served from 1913 until 1921.

No one is denying, however, that Trump rejected a bipartisan immigration deal brought to him by six senators that addressed not only the now-ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but also the diversity lottery and temporary protected status programs, funding for border security, and some aspects of the family-based migration system. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" "To me he doesn't seem like a president".

In the meeting, Trump criticized the tentative bipartisan agreement drafted by Durbin, Arizona Republican Jeff Flake and four other senators.

The White House had made clear that Trump's examination would not include a psychiatric exam. Results of past presidential physicals have included basic data like weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

"I was not in the meeting with the President and do not know what was said, although (I) have every reason to believe President Trump when he says he did not make those comments".

Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable", telling WPLG-TV in Miami that "if that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it".

The satellites were launched in two orbits, 30 of them at 550 kilometers from the earth and the remaining at 359 kilometers. The final 28-hour countdown for the launch of 31 satellites began on Thursday at 5.29 a.m.

Officials from Kenya, South Africa, Nepal, and Mexico all had a few words for Trump, proving that the acknowledgment of human rights has not seized to exist in any place but the White House.

The Washington Post reported on Thursday that the president made the comments during an Oval Office meeting on immigration reform with a bipartisan group of lawmakers.

Graham was present for the meeting Thursday, and Illinois Sen.

The president's remark is "unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation's values", she said.

"This was not the language used", Trump said in a tweet.

"All of the reservations we have had about negotiating with him on immigration are well-founded", Richmond said in a statement. He called King a "great American hero".

In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to almost 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 quake and told them to return home by July 2019.

Durbin, who was in the meeting with Trump, told reporters the president did say "these hate-filled things" and repeatedly called African nations "shitholes". His political rise was powered first by his promotion of lies about Barack Obama's citizenship, then by his allegations that Mexican immigrants to the United States were rapists and murderers.
