"The president can't seem to take yes for an answer and is heading toward a shut down, which would fall squarely on his back", Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement emailed to Reuters. "It's just the way God made him", he told reporters. By Sunday, Perdue and Cotton were flatly denying Trump used the vulgarities. There appears to be little difference in meaning between the two words.
"Lindsey - he meant well - but I said, 'Well, how many Republicans agree with this?'" Trump said. "And there is no way in the world to fix this problem without dealing with the DACA issue".
Amidst allegations from his opponents and some physicians about the status of his mental health, Jackson said that Trump asked him to conduct a test on him in this regard, even though it was not required by law. "Deals can't get made when there is no trust!"
House Republicans introduced a plan Tuesday night that would fund the government until February 16, but it doesn't include a solution ahead of the DACA deadline on March 5, nor does it include a full year budget for the military.
"It's frightful for the security of our country", Trump said, noting there was not enough funding for the wall he has promised to build on the U.S.
The meeting was convened to consider a bipartisan immigration deal to protect the "dreamers" - young immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children, including the 690,000 now enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that Trump has canceled. I understand that. But I'll tell you this: "I stand by every word I said about what was said and what happened".
Durbin said Monday the White House should release whatever recording it might have of the meeting. The White House said there are no tapes.
Ranit Mishori, an attending physician at Georgetown University-Providence Hospital in Washington, said Trump received more screening and diagnostic tests than are generally recommended for someone at his age and with his medical history. They said Trump expressed a preference for immigrants from countries like Norway, which is overwhelmingly white.More news: Nintendo Labo Harnesses the Power of the Cardboard Box
A confidant of Trump told The Associated Press that the president spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction to his remarks. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.
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". Democrats said they're still unlikely to support the measure without an agreement on immigration.
"This agenda-driven report is clearly created to support the Trump administration's anti-immigrant and Islamophobic policies", the Council on American-Islamic Relations said.
Trump was 70 when he took office, making him the oldest person ever elected to the nation's highest office.
The president, in the meeting, also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the US, according to people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorized to describe the meeting publicly.
"Let's bring this matter to a vote before we reach deadline on Friday", Durbin said. The brief comment came as his staff was urging members of the media to leave the room. Generations ago, numerous European nations that past immigrants once called home were derided with similar sentiments to the ones Trump expressed.
Other than an appendectomy when he was 11, Trump has had no major surgery. She said: "Why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV".
