Trump Staff "Irrational" About Immigration: Senior Republican Senator

Trump Staff

Georgia GOP Sen. David Perdue said Sunday that there had been a "gross misinterpretation" of Trump's remarks in a private meeting, where sources told CNN Trump made the demeaning and dismissive comment about immigrants from Haiti and Africa and added that the United States should get more people from countries like Norway, a predominantly white and wealthy nation. Lindsey Graham brought a plan to Trump that involved cutting the visa lottery in half and, at the behest of the Congressional Black Caucus, the rest would go to underrepresented countries in Africa and Temporary Protected Status nations, including Haiti.

Trump made that declaration Sunday in the wake of his recent comments about Haiti and African countries.

Trump has continued to tweet over the weekend about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) proposals, including that it's probably dead.

"No No I'm not a racist".

"I am the least racist person you will ever interview", Trump responded to a reporter's question at his Mar-a-Lago Florida resort. "This is an important issue, he's passionate about it, he's not going to apologize for trying to fix our immigration system".

Some Democrats have threatened to vote against legislation to extend government funding, which expires on Friday, unless protections for the Dreamers are included. Dick Durbin, D-Chicago, "totally misrepresented" what he said during a meeting last week about DACA.

A US judge ruled last Tuesday that DACA should remain in effect until legal challenges brought in multiple courts are resolved. "That I can tell you". So when we screen immigrants on merit, who do we let in and how do they do?


Trump first denied having used the word "shithole" during the meeting by tweeting that he'd used "tough language" but not the specific words reported. One participant at the meeting on Sunday denied that Trump used the term and another said he did not recall Trump making such comments.

The clamor over President Donald Trump's use of a vulgarity bled into a second week Tuesday as aides took issue with details in accounts of his comments and a Republican senator who was present for the original remark said the situation had become an "s-show".

Trump was immediately lambasted and denounced for the comments, including by the Haitian government, which said the president's comments reflected a "racist view of the Haitian community", according to the Associated Press. The president's inflammatory comments left lawmakers struggling to find a path forward.

Martin Luther King III, King's elder son, said: "When a president insists that our nation needs more citizens from white states like Norway, I don't even think we need to spend any time even talking about what it says and what it is".

In fact, Trump apologists - and the president himself - might be surprised by what the economic data says about immigrants who come to Canada from the "shithole" countries. He called the new stories a "gross misrepresentation". "Made up by Dems".

Republican Senator Jeff Flake said on Sunday he was told about the remarks by colleagues who attended the meeting, before the news reports emerged.
