Sen. Cotton: Dems Must Make Concessions to Get DACA Deal

Trump's dancing monkeys break bipartisan hearts

The "shithole" remarks by Trump has sparked widespread condemnation forcing the government's of Nigeria, South Africa and Botswana to summon USA ambassadors in their countries.

After not denying it for more than 24 hours, Trump now insists - kinda, sorta - that he didn't say that he didn't want immigrants from "shithole" countries coming here.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted.

Durbin had told reporters on Friday that Trump had used the word "s***hole" several times in front of the group during a discussion of a proposed bipartisan deal on immigration, and had said "things which were hate-filled, vile and racist". President Obama had protected them through the DACA program, which stood for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, but Trump wants to end the program. "I can tell you explicitly they are wrong". A senior GOP source familiar with the matter told CNN that instead of hearing the President say "sh-hole" during the meeting, some Republicans actually heard "sh-house".

But Perdue went even further on Sunday and said emphatically on ABC's "This Week" that Trump did not use the racially charged phrase.

"I didn't hear that word either", Cotton said, adding, "I certainly didn't hear what Senator Durbin has said repeatedly".

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., similarly said, "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive".

Alas, the "shithole" saga seems to have a weird staying power, much of which stems from Trump's obsession with pursuing the absurd claim that he didn't actually say it.

"My memory hasn't evolved", Graham told the Charleston Courier and Post. Durbin has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings, though. It's not the first time Sen.

Microsoft Developing a New Xbox One Elite Controller?

A 24-year-old man with no experience since graduating college other than working on Trump's campaign rose to a deputy chief of staff job in the White House in the Office of National Drug Control Policy, The Washington Post reported.

Maurice Watson, pastor of Metropolitan Baptist Church in Largo, called the reported remark "dehumanizing" and "ugly" and said "whoever made such a statement.is wrong and they ought to be held accountable".

Perdue maintained on "This Week" that the focus on what Trump allegedly said in the White House meeting was being used to prevent any deals on immigration.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is president pro tempore of the Senate and generally has a good relationship with Trump, called for more information Thursday night.

At one point Graham, as he's acknowledged publicly, demanded that Trump shift his tone on immigration. Dick Durbin and Republican Sen.

Republican Senator Tim Scott has also said Graham corroborated to him personally that Trump did use the language described in media reports.

Trump was meeting with lawmakers about a potential deal on immigration last week when he questioned why the US should admit more people from Africa and Haiti.

Trump stated that Democrats were to blame for killing DACA and that they did not want secure borders.

The statements drew quick and widespread condemnation and resulted in Trump reversing his vow to sign whatever DACA deal lawmakers came up with. It would also boost border security, including bolstering fencing at the Mexican border.
