Dick Durbin is Intentionally Trying to Scuttle DACA Talks

Dick Durbin, who attended the meeting and said Trump described Haiti and countries in Africa as "shithole countries".

Durbin said that while this week has been a odd one for his political career, he believes more Republicans will distance themselves from the president.

Responding to Democrats' assertions that Trump's comments were "racist", Sanders calls the claim "outrageous", citing their previous embrace of Trump. "Something happened between Tuesday and Thursday and we'll get to the bottom of that", Graham said.

Trump's physician - Navy doctor Ronny Jackson - says the president achieved a ideal score on the test, which was included in last Friday's medical checkup. "I stand behind every word that I said". She says "others in the room were also using tough language".

There is some internal West Wing debate over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse".

President Donald Trump's doctor says he's confident that Trump has a "very strong and a very probable possibility" of completing his presidency "with no medical issues".

Trump has denied that he used that specific word in the meeting, which was first reported by The Washington Post, and then confirmed by other outlets. There appears to be little difference in meaning between the two words.

"I will say I don't think the president was well served by his staff". "This is an important issue, he's passionate about it, he's not going to apologize for trying to fix our immigration system".

The president's rejection of the deal also threw a wrench in the plan to include a DACA deal as part of a spending bill that must be passed by Friday to avoid a government shutdown.

Mr. Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming USA president.

Trump tweeted Sunday that a DACA agreement was "probably dead", blaming Democrats in the wake of the meeting Thursday in which the president, according to attendees, derided "shithole countries", report Newsday's Laura Figueroa Hernandez and Scott Eidler. We can solve the DACA - we may even be able to solve some of the Dreamer numbers that Senator Durbin wants to talk about.

Thrown into the center of the controversy was Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah), who was placed in a unique position both as a Republican politician and the first Haitian-American representative in the United States Congress.

Jackson said he had no plans to perform the cognitive test ahead of the examination as a result of his personal understanding of Trump, but that Trump urged him to do so. Dick Durbin of misrepresenting comments the president made at a White House meeting last week.

A senator who attended the closed-door meeting during which the president reportedly insulted Haiti and various African nations with an expletive now says Trump never said the word.

But on ABC News' "This Week," he repeatedly said that the meeting had been grossly and totally misrepresented in the press.

Another Trump tweet in recent days doesn't hold up. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private conversation. Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".
