Eric Trump says my father Donald Trump is not racist

Ellis Copeland | 21 January, 2018, 02:19

Hundreds of Haitian-Americans and others have rallied in Times Square in New York City to denounce racism and remarks that President Donald Trump is said to have made disparaging African countries and questioning further USA acceptance of Haitian immigrants.

But there is now some internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse".

Trump has not clarified to aides what he said, but told reporters Sunday night in Florida that comments attributed to him "weren't made".

That message was a distinct counterpoint to words attributed to Trump by Durbin and others at a meeting last week, when the question of where immigrants come from seemed at the forefront of Trump's concerns.

The White House has not denied that Trump used a vulgar term, and there appears to be little difference in meaning between the two words.

Senior Republican Senator Lindsey Graham blamed Trump's staff Tuesday as "irrational" for killing off the tentative compromise reached by Democratic and Republican lawmakers.

"We want to avoid the mass draconian deportation that otherwise will occur to these very courageous and talented young people who have come to our country", Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT said.

He responded "I don't know" when asked whether there would a government shutdown, but warned it would hurt the military, which he said is unacceptable.

Titans have hired Mike Vrabel as head coach
He earned back-to-back All-America honors and was twice named Big Ten conference Defensive Lineman of the Year (1995 and 1996). The Titans are said to be prioritizing a first-time coach, and they want one who can help maximize the skill sets of players.


"I'm not going to get into what I said, but I will tell you, it was a tough meeting", Trump said.

Durbin said Monday the White House should release whatever recording it might have of the meeting. When pressed about Trump's use of vulgarity, she responded by presenting a thorough overview of the policy argument that Trump, in her view, had attempted to make.

As well, Durbin and people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorised to describe it publicly said Trump also questioned the need to admit more Haitians. "All over", Trump told columnists in the Oval Office when gotten some information about his remarks.

Trump insisted afterward in a tweet that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. We need to keep America safe, including moving away from a random chain migration and lottery system, to one that is merit-based", he said.

"I've lost all trust in Durbin", Trump said.

Mr Trump claimed the Democrats "made up" his comments about Haiti.

Health and Child Care minister David Parirenyatwa said: "I would like to thank the ambassador for the reassurance he has given us". The United States of America is safer, healthier, more prosperous, and better equipped to solve problems that confront all of humanity when we work with, listen to, and learn from our African partners.

His Justice Department courted further controversy Tuesday when it announced it would appeal directly to the Supreme Court the San Francisco judge's challenge to Trump's order to end DACA.
