Donald Trump's ex-wife says he's not racist, just confused

"Tuesday we had a president I was proud to golf with and call my friend", Graham said. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.), who told the truth.

But there is now some internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse". "I'm the least racist person you will ever interview".

Nielsen said the conversation was impassioned and the president was using tough language.

Trump made the comments, sources said, as Durbin was reading a list of temporary protected status countries.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted Monday, using a nickname to needle the IL senator.

"I don't think Democrats want to make a deal".

Durbin reiterated this to Nielsen, saying to "put the entire burden of immigration reform on the shoulders" of DACA recipients was "unfair".

He was referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects young people who came to the U.S.as children and are living here illegally. "Carson, the only black member of Trump's Cabinet, had never served in Congress and spent his career as a surgeon". On Monday, he attacked Durbin specifically.

But you don't just "move forward" after the president describes African countries as "s***holes" and proposes more white immigration. Sen.

Trump has denied saying "anything derogatory" about Haitians, and said he did not use the vulgar language that has been reported.

Farris said he raised the issue of Trump's alleged comments during a 30- minute meeting with the president, vice president and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson before the proclamation signing.

Asked why Mr Trump had defended the comments privately but denied them publicly, Ms Sanders said: "The president hasn't said he didn't use strong language".

"I can't defend the indefensible", said Mia Love, a Haitian-American congresswoman from Utah who campaigned on Trump's behalf in the country's Haitian community. Of the 1.4 million immigrants from sub-Sahara Africa who are 25 and older, according to the Los Angeles Times, citing research from the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute, "41 percent have a bachelor's degree, compared with 30 percent of all immigrants and 32 percent of the US -born population - and 38 percent of the 19,000 USA immigrants from Norway".

"I think somebody on his staff gave him really bad advice between 10 o'clock to 12 o'clock on Thursday", Graham said.

The contentious comments came as Durbin was presenting details of a compromise immigration plan that had money for a first installment of the president's long-sought border wall.

"It was Martin Luther King that said there's 'nothing in this world more unsafe than honest ignorance and conscientious stupidity, '" Booker said.

"I actually want a solution for DACA", Tillis said.

He said Trump has used "dog whistle politics" to rally his base and "we have to challenge him".

Word of Trump's comments threatened to upend delicate negotiations over resolving the status of the hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought to the USA illegally as children.
