GOP Senators Think Trump Said 'Shithouse' Not 'Shithole'

Schumer defends Durbin after GOP senator questions account of Trump meeting

"And I had absolutely no concerns about his cognitive ability or his, you know, his neurological function", Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters from the briefing room. "It was a meeting of 12 people". The following day, Trump tweeted "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

"Don't give my number out", Graham said, "but call me". New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, angrily criticized Nielsen's comments, telling her during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, "Your silence and your amnesia is complicity". "Mr. President close the deal", said Sen. Lindsey Graham were mistaken in indicating that was the case.

Conflicting reports are emerging about whether President Donald Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse" to refer to Haiti and African countries. He could think that a clean DACA deal is much more of a possibility now since Republicans might abandon Trump. What did happen in that meeting was a very constructive conversation about how to move forward. The White House said Trump had no intention of apologizing.

The assessment was one in a series of rosy readings that Jackson offered about Trump's health after examining him for more than four hours last week.

'Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday. Dawsey is the reporter who broke the story of Trump's racist remarks last week.


Both the White House and the House speaker's office denied Durbin's account at the time, with then-White House press secretary Jay Carney saying at a briefing, "I looked into this and spoke with somebody who was in that meeting and it did not happen".

President Donald Trump is accusing Democratic Sen.

Senator Dick Durbin, the 2nd-ranking Democrat appears to be intentionally moving to scuttle bi-partisan resolution on the United States immigration crisis.

Perdue maintained on "This Week" that the focus on what Trump allegedly said in the White House meeting was being used to prevent any deals on immigration. Since some Democrats say they won't greenlight the budget if DACA isn't resolved, the government could face a shut down on Friday. Lindsey Graham of SC, who did not detail Trump's exact wording but said he confronted Trump about the comments. "It's not the first time Senator Durbin has done it". "I'm not going to get into all the details of a private meeting". "And I know, and I know what Dick Durbin has said about the President's repeated statements is incorrect".

Two Republican senators who were in the meeting - David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas - said Friday they didn't recall Trump using the term. "It's fair to say the president reacted strongly to that". The official said that although this might enrage Washington, staffers predicted the comment would resonate with Trump's base, similarly to how Trump's attacks on NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem did. Left to its own devices, the State Department came up with its own talking points to be used by US missions in Africa working to stem the damage, said a USA official, who wasn't authorized to disclose internal deliberations and demanded anonymity.
