Durbin subject of Trump's tweets after DACA meeting


The man has continued to display total contempt for Africans by blaming everything that he disagrees with to the Obama administration even things that were done by the Bush administration such as the American UK embassy debacle.

What Trump asked last Thursday was: “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” From the context – he was meeting with congressmen and senators who were working on immigration issues – it's clear that by ‘shithole countries' he meant Central American and African countries. His colleague Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., who was not at the meeting, said Graham told him that Durbin's account was "basically accurate". That is pure racism - and the Republican Party, which traces its heritage to Abraham Lincoln, must decide whether to go along.

"The conversation was very impassioned, I don't dispute that the President was using tough language, others in the room were also using tough language", Nielsen said.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted, using a nickname to needle the Illinois senator. We should take his question seriously and answer it for him.

On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence, who worshipped at a Baptist church in Maryland, listened as the pastor denounced Trump's use of vulgarity.

"Dr King's dream is our dream", Mr Trump said in the message.

A day later, the African Union, comprising all 55 African nations, condemned Trump's remarks, saying they "dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity". U.S. Sens Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) disputed Durbin's account.

There are two appropriate responses to these comments: to dismiss them as an emotional outburst that the famously mercurial president could move on from, or to treat them as a mission statement and conclude that no deal is possible.

Hopes were high early last week when Trump held a bipartisan meeting on immigration at the White House.

And with the midterm elections approaching, there are fresh fears among Republicans who were already anxious over the political climate going into November - and over Trump's unpredictable actions. I know what was said and I know what I said"-yet they chose that route. Y'all know what he said", Dr King's son, Martin Luther King III, said at a breakfast honouring his late father. It is high time that African countries look east and forge new ties that will be based on mutual respect.

"In - I don't - I don't specifically remember a category - categorization of countries in Africa", she said, explaining that "there were a lot of cross conversations". His oldest son, charged with running the family business, has actively raised funds for Republicans allies of his father; one of his senior advisers was "counseled" after promoting Trump products; and a former ethics chief called White House practices "no way to run an ethics program". Durbin confirmed the president's vulgar language on the record, but a pair of senators defended Trump over the weekend, accusing Durbin of making it up.

Donald Trump saying something racist "isn't exactly news anymore", as "Saturday Night Live's" Michael Che observed.

'He cares about the economy, right? But there is everything racist about the white ethnocentric theory of American identity that Trump champions with remarkable frankness.

The 34-year-old's comment sparked immediate reaction on Twitter, with people tweeting at the president's son questions like, "If your father only sees green, why did he have to settle with the @CivilRights for housing discrimination against black people?" Trump said, according to the report. "The President thought it would play well with the base".
