Haitian government summons USA official to explain Trump's comment

Two Republican senators who attended yesterday's meeting in which President Trump reportedly disparaged immigrants from "shithole countries" seem to have come down with a case of amnesia.

"You didn't hear the word or it was not said?".

"This is a gross misrepresentation, it's not the first time Senator Durbin has done it, and it is not productive to solving the problem that we have at hand", Purdue told ABC on Sunday.

He changed course Sunday, however, saying it was a line cooked up by Sen.

President Donald Trump was meeting with congressional leaders in the Oval Office Thursday about a compromise on the DACA program that would allow immigrants brought here as children by their parents to stay.

Purdue also blasted the Illinois Democrat, pointing out that Durbin likely mischaracterized comments a House Republican made to President Barack Obama in 2013. Dick Durbin confirmed the president's use of the language the next day. "Durbin or Sen. Graham is going to make something up that the president of the United States has said, and thinking that they would do that in order to gin up people on one way or another, that's wrong", Manchin said Sunday.

Perdue and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., were both present at the negotiations on reforming the immigration system.

CES 2018: Project Linda announced to turn Razer Phone into a laptop
It'll be a shame to see Project Linda go to docks, but even if Razer comes up with the commercial launch, it won't be cheap. Looking at the dimensions of the trackpad surface area, it looks like you can only dock the Razer Phone and nothing else.

"I didn't hear that word", Cotton insisted.

Durbin's communications director tweeted a response to Perdue's apparent questioning of the credibility of the IL senator's account of what Trump said. "Senator Durbin has it. Senator Perdue does not".

"I can't defend the indefensible". "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?".

"We all need to stop pretending that there are no consequences when the most powerful person in the world espouses racist views and gives a wink and a nod to the darkest elements in our society", she said.

Thrown into the center of the controversy was Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah), who was placed in a unique position both as a Republican politician and the first Haitian-American representative in the United States Congress.

The furor over President Donald Trump's vulgar language on immigration has partially obscured the substance of what he was demanding and the profound shift among Republicans away from opposing illegal immigration to pushing new limits on legal migrants, particularly of color.

Trump "said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist", Durbin told reporters. Are you saying the president did not use the word that has been so widely reported? I certainly didn't hear what Senator Durbin has said repeatedly. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., confronted Trump about it at the time.
