48% of Americans think Trump's 'shithole' remarks were racist

Former UN Ambassador Samantha Power

An aide held the poster aloft right behind Sen.

Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., said in an interview: "It certainly creates a great deal of confusion here on the Hill as to who's speaking for whom, and what really are the intentions of this administration". David Perdue of Georgia denied the reported remarks on January 11, the day of the meeting, but the next day they shifted to saying they did not recall exactly what the president said.

Since The Washington Post's Josh Dawsey reported that Trump griped about immigrants from "shithole countries", two Republican senators, Tom Cotton and David Perdue, have attempted to muddy the waters, claiming they didn't hear Trump use such language, though a White House official told Dawsey Sunday that the pair are apparently arguing that Trump said "shithouse" instead.

Trump's critics say his "America First" position has left the United States isolated, its global standing diminished. "But I imagine that is the case". Rude and crude maybe, but hardly worthy of criticism and certainly not on par with the deeds of an evil white supremacist. "I am stunned that this is their defense". While some of the attendants, including Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, insist Trump used the exact word, others denied it or said they could not recollect the exact terminology.

From a rollback of environmental protections to approving space missions, here is a look at the 45th USA president's impact on science and technology-related issues.

Unless a plan is agreed, the government will run out of money, triggering the possibility of a temporary shutdown until lawmakers approve a new budget.

President Donald Trump, accompanied by Majority Leader in the House, Kevin McCarthy, Republican for California, speaks to reporters upon arriving at a dinner at the Trump International Gulf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, on January 14, 2018.

Trump has said he will allow the program to end in March if Congress doesn't act.

"I hope you remember me", Durbin began acidly.

But how then do we as Africans demand respect from these countries and their leaders if we have relegated ourselves to the indignity of being their beggars? Trump has antagonized countries in the Middle East by saying he would move the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, he has frozen aid to Pakistan, calling it a haven for terrorist, he defeated ISIS in Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria, and he has taunted North Korea's leader Kim Jung Un on Twitter.

With that said, here's what I'm openly saying to those President Trump detractors at those dinner parties on my Twitter account @OliverMcGee.

"I won't call it a 180, but we had to make some pretty significant shifts", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told The Associated Press this month.

Trump reminds me of a serial cheater I knew of, who boasted that he could get away with it every time his wife found out because he had a very effective strategy: "No matter what it is, you deny it". "I want him back", Graham said.

Trump has experienced several recent episodes in which he appeared to slur his words, adding to concerns about his health. "It is further concerning that he is doing it in policy meetings that will impact laws in this country and overseas", said Sharpton.

The move was criticised by some of the internet's biggest companies, including Netflix, Twitter and Facebook, with Netflix saying: "We're disappointed in the decision to gut #NetNeutrality protections that ushered in an unprecedented era of innovation, creativity & civic engagement". But also, the President feels we must broker the best trade deals we can get from other countries, while ensuring America doesn't continue to be ripped off by other countries.

"Your silence and your amnesia is complicity", Booker told her.

The key message, the official said: Emphasize that the United States has a "deep respect" for people from Africa and that the US relationship with any county is deeper than any one comment.

Do Nielsen, Cotton and Perdue see that?
