Davis: We Should Speak Out Over Trump

Davis: We Should Speak Out Over Trump”

"Why don't we get more people from Norway?"

Trump reportedly demanded to know why the USA should accept immigrants from "shithole countries", after lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador.

But in the wake of the comment, several countries, including Haiti, have summoned top U.S. diplomats to answer for Trump's remarks.

Asked by a reporter in Florida whether he was a racist, Trump said: "No".

"But he is definitely not racist, I am sure of that", she added. "I think they talk about DACA but they don't want to help the DACA people", said Mr. Trump. But in a sign of how much they want the border wall built, most of his backers are in favor of cutting a deal on DACA to get the wall funded.

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

Trump has continued to tweet over the weekend about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) proposals, including that it's probably dead. That court didn't actually rule DACA illegal, though, because DACA wasn't specifically challenged in that case.

"In 2013, Senator Durbin also made the same accusation against a Republican leader in a meeting with President Obama, and said that. he chewed out the president, it was so disrespectful to President Obama, we couldn't even have the meeting", Perdue said. "We can not let this derail us".

Trump's insults sparked the African group of ambassadors to the United Nations to issue an extraordinary statement condemning his "outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks" and also demand a retraction and apology.

Sitting to the left of U.S. President Donald Trump at a meeting on immigration reform is Senate Minority Whip Richard Durbin (D-IL) while House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) is sitting on the right side.

Without explicitly denying using the vulgarity, Trump on Monday lashed out at the Democratic senator, who said Trump uttered it on several occasions.

TOM COTTON: And I know what Dick Durbin has said about the president's repeated statements is incorrect. Some Democrats insist that the DACA question be addressed by then.

Some Democrats have threatened to vote against legislation to extend government funding, which expires on Friday, unless protections for the Dreamers are included. "I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the USA". "But what we have to do is not let that define this moment", said Republican Senator Cory Gardner on CBS's "Face the Nation" program. He called the new stories a "gross misrepresentation".

But Perdue said Sunday on ABC's "This Week: "I am telling you that he did not use that word".

Trump was said to have told them that instead of granting temporary residency to citizens of countries hit by natural disasters, war or epidemics, the USA should be taking in migrants from countries like Norway.

Trump has been accused of using the word "shithole" to describe African countries during an Oval Office meeting Thursday with a bipartisan group of six senators, according to people briefed on the conversation. How many times you want me to say that?

Jackson said Trump urged the doctor to "answer every question" the media had before he stepped up to the podium, and he did so with gusto during an nearly hour-long briefing with the media, in a remarkable show of transparency.

She also appeared to rebut Trump's remarks from earlier in the day.
