Nigeria summons USA embassy official over Trump's 'shithole' comment

17 January 2018

Perdue says Durbin and Republican Sen.

Trump himself has denied he is racist by telling reporters: 'I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed.

"This has turned into an s-show and we need to get back to being a great country, where Democrats and Republicans will work together to do something that we should have done years ago", Graham said. Sunday night numerous media outlets were reporting the White House was trying to clarify that the President used the term "sh*thouse" instead.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Mr. Trump wrote in a tweet. Cotton said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the vulgar word used.

What have those in the room said?

A few inches of snow possible starting Tuesday night
A winter weather advisory has been issued for several North Texas counties, including Dallas, Tarrant, Collin and Rockwall. Dry conditions are expected throughout the work week as temperatures work their way back above freezing later in the week.

Trump responded that he wanted immigrants from other non-white parts of the world out of the United States when he was asked about his immigration views in the White House.

South Africa's foreign office has summoned the deputy chief of mission at the USA embassy to protest over the reported comments, although Ghana has denied media reports that it has done likewise. "I am the least racist person", he added, noting his "certain street sense" as a defense.

Love has had a thriving political career as a Republican, but it would behoove her not to allow the president's critics, led by CNN, to use her as a pawn in their blood lust to destroy Trump.

"I think we have a lot of sticking points but they are all Democrat sticking points". I know the comments were made.

Without explicitly denying using the vulgarity, Trump lashed out at Durbin, who said Trump uttered it several times during the meeting.

Hands on: Google Assistant's new 'smart displays' are a must-have
Several large video billboards around the conference centre are dedicated to advertising the Google Assistant. The first Smart Displays, built by Lenovo, JBL , Sony, and LG, won't arrive until the summer at the soonest.

Trump's remarks come after talks on a bipartisan immigration proposal froze after the President made disparaging comments in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers in which he reportedly derided African nations as "shithole countries" and asked why more immigrants couldn't come from Norway.

"Honestly, I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal", he said. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military".

This has irked some African nations with them calling on Mr. Trump to render an apology for his "racist" comments. There is no other word one can use but "racist". The White House said there are no tapes.

The President has drawn sharp criticism since he was reported to have called African countries "shitholes" while discussing immigration with lawmakers Thursday.

But Senator Dick Durbin insisted the United States leader had used "hate-filled, vile and racist language during the meeting".

GOP senator: Trump didn't make 's-hole' remark
Scott Holcomb, a DeKalb Democrat and potential 2020 challenger to Perdue, said the junior senator is "not credible". Doubling down on his statement, Perdue reiterated Sunday that Durbin was the only person to make the accusation.

A member of Trump's camp said the president spent Thursday evening contacting friends and advisers to see how they felt about his remarks.
