Trump blames Senator Durbin for blowing immigration deal

Agenda for Congress: Discerning DACA fix

Some say Trump did not use the word. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and some Republicans. The president also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the US, according to people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorized to describe the meeting publicly. "I will remind you, your name is Kirstjen Nielsen, with a silent J". We're producing some pretty good policy, but those of us in my business need to up their game.

He was referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects young people who came to the U.S.as children and are living here illegally.

Durbin has said the White House should release whatever recording it might have of the meeting.

"Honestly, I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal". The White House did not initially deny that Trump had made the remark, but in subsequent days conflicting accounts emerged from participants in the meeting, and Trump tweeted that he had not used that word, but did use "tough" language.

He asked how Trump had characterized African countries.

McCaul and some other Republicans contend that Democrats will watch their strategy backfire politically if they are perceived to have held government funding hostage for DACA recipients. Purdue said Durbin had committed a "gross misrepresentation" of the president's words, and Cotton argued on CBS's Face the Nation that Durbin "has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings".

"In the spirit of the people of Haiti we feel in the statements, if they were made, the president was either misinformed or miseducated about Haiti and its people", he said in a statement. He has denied making the statements as well as ensuing accusations that he is racist. "Norway is a predominantly white country, isn't it?" he asked, rhetorically.

HuffPost Editor in Chief Lydia Polgreen, whose site refused to cover Trump in the political section for the early stages of his campaign, wrote, "I'm not a doctor but this seems like a stretch?"

"And I'm not just talking about what was recently in the news as he described Haiti ... but, other things he has said repeatedly throughout his tenure as both the president and as a candidate", Emanuel said.

"I say this not just as a mayor who has a diverse city and a responsibility ... to have one city, one future". The brief comment came as his staff was urging members of the media to leave the room.

The test, called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, is a screening tool used to identify mild cognitive impairment or dementia. A copy of Trump's NY driver's license obtained by Politico listed Trump's height as 6-foot-2, instead of 6-foot-3; the lower height would put Trump over the obesity threshold.
