Why We are Missing the Point on Trump's 'Shithole' Racist Words

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said on "Fox News Sunday" that she did not recall Trump saying "that exact phrase".

The Washington Post, citing people brief on the meeting, reported last week that Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as s--thole countries, setting of a political firestorm.

President Donald Trump asked that a cognitive test be included as part of his first physical exam.

Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill Tuesday, Graham accused White House staff of giving Trump "really bad advice" on the bipartisan proposal presented to President Trump last week.

Durbin has said the White House should release whatever recording it might have of the meeting. "He used those words repeatedly". "This is about a gross misrepresentation".

"I'm saying that this is a gross misrepresentation", Perdue said. "I am stunned that this is their defense", Durbin said.

So what changed? Did their memory suddenly become clearer or did they suddenly decide that they needed to protect the leader of their party and perhaps salvage the Republican Party's reputation heading into 2018 midterm elections? Tom Cotton issued a joint statement Friday.

A "White House official told me tonight there is debate internally on whether Trump said "shithole" or 'shithouse, '" Washington Post White House reporter Josh Dawsey said on Twitter. "You've seen the comments in the press". This is the time but, day by day, they are blowing the one great opportunity they have. "President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile, and racist". "I haven't heard any of those six sources other than Senator Durbin talk about what was said".

Trump has said he is ready and willing to make a deal to help the Dreamers, but he has insisted that funding for border security, including a wall along the USA border with Mexico that he promised as a presidential candidate, be included in any legislative package.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the USA after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the discussion.

"He was supposed to have a meeting where these lawmakers were going to come in and talk about merit-based immigration reform, and they came to him with something that had a whole bunch of carveouts", said Jason Miller, Trump's former campaign spokesman and a CNN contributor.

"He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

The person believes the discrepancy may be why some Republican senators are denying having heard the president say "shithouse".

Questions about Trump's mental fitness have been raised following comments attributed to some of his close advisers in a new book, and his recent slurring of words on national TV. We now have a president who rejects American ideals of diversity and inclusion in favor of racial purity. "Do we need more Haitians?" Never said "take them out".

Norway's population is nearly entirely White while the countries and continent Trump chose to deride are mostly Black and Brown. At least two American envoys overseas - in Haiti and Botswana - were summoned to explain the President's remarks.
