Trump rejects senators' bipartisan 'Dreamer' immigration plan

But neither he nor the White House denied the most controversial of his comments: using the word "s--hole" to describe countries in Africa and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

"First stop would be Osu Castle, Elmina Castle, and the over 40 Forts that detained about 30 million slaves, beaten and shipped out like sardine cans and then I will tell you the history of Africa and why people like you made that a "shithole" continent".

On Friday morning, roughly 15 hours after the comments were first reported by The Washington Post, Trump disputed the details reported about his words in a series of tweets. Numerous concessions that leading Democrats seem willing to make - from cutting diversity visas to chipping away at family visas - would be made on the backs of Black immigrants, people from Africa and the Caribbean who deserve these policies to remain intact as some of the few legal tools they have to immigrate to this country. I have said repeatedly, 'I can't look into Donald Trump's heart and I can't say he's a racist.' I can say now: "Donald Trump is a racist". "I represent Florida, and we are an fantastic melting pot where over 250 languages are spoken". There is bipartisan support for some form of protection, but just how much and what immigration enforcements need to be added in exchange is what's being negotiated now. "I'm incredibly proud of our diversity".

Several prominent Republicans, including Stamford-raised U.S. Rep. Mia Love, who is of Haitian descent, condemned Trump's comments.

Leading US media, including the Washington Post and New York Times newspapers and CNN, quoted multiple sources saying Trump in a meeting with US lawmakers asked why the United States attracted immigrants from "shithole countries" rather than, for instance, wealthier and predominantly white Norway. We get it, wink, wink.

"President Trump made remarks which were obscene, racist and vile", said the Florida Democratic Party, calling the silence from GOP gubernatorial candidates Adam Putnam and Ron DeSantis "alarming" and "deafening".

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday afternoon: "There has not been a deal reached yet". Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

"I'm not sure what the next step will be", Durbin told reporters. "It's a bipartisan proposal which we've worked on for four months in the Senate, and I don't know what happens next". "I've not read one of them that's inaccurate".

Trump's remarks come two months after deportation protections for almost 60,000 Haitians following the country's 2010 quake were rescinded in November.

Georgia Sen. David Perdue and Arkansas Sen. But why are the others not doing anything today about Trump's lying?

Graham and Durbin laid out the details of their proposed legislation.

Clerger served eight years in the US Army working in a mental health unit helping soldiers coming home from deployment.

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and so-called chain migration, a program by which USA green-card holders can sponsor other family members for permanent residence in the country. Higgins says he also believes the President's base is beginning to erode after people stood with him and giving him a chance a few times. "I think it fundamentally poisons the relationship with numerous countries".

In a joint statement after the meeting, the six senators in the Durbin group noted their deal hit those four points and pledged to work to seek support from colleagues, without acknowledging the setback. African-Americans believe they migrated to America in chains and when you talk about chain migration, it hurts them personally.

What exactly did Trump say?
