How an immigrant to Canada helped Donald Trump prove his mental state

Trump, the paper reported, objected to the Democrats" proposed changes to the visa lottery and to how people from countries get "temporary protected status, ' with the president worrying it would attract people from "s***hole countries" instead of immigrants from more desirable, in the president's eyes, places like Norway and Asia. "It was during the negotiations over the debt ceiling, where Durbin said that one GOP House leader told then-President Obama, "'I can not even stand to look at you". Diaz-Balart was in the meeting where Trump reportedly used the words "shithole countries", but declined to discuss anything that was said in the meeting.

"We note that this language is wrong and does not reflect the stature of the President of the United States", the council said, adding "In Africa we do deeply respect elders and the language that elders use should be respectful and one that befits the position that they hold".

The test President Donald Trump specifically asked to take to prove his cognitive abilities can't tell us anything about his psychiatric health, experts say.

After over two hours of testimony - and being asked about the issue repeatedly - Nielsen deflected questions from other Democrats on the matter, saying she had said all that should could about the matter.

From the context - he was meeting with congressmen and senators who were working on immigration issues - it's clear that by "shithole countries" he meant Central American and African countries.

The Illinois representative said this past week that he heard the president make the statements, although other representatives in the same meeting denied hearing it.

Sen. Lindsey Graham just spoke to reporters and laid into President Donald Trump and the White House for failing to broach a bipartisan deal on immigration reform and DACA with a government shutdown looming.

Administration officials and lawmakers spent the holiday weekend debating the precise presidential vulgarity used, and moved to cast last Thursday's White House meeting as a salty affair, with expletives flying in all directions. Trump made these remarks while speaking with Senate Democrats and Republicans.

The bill includes a slew of other provisions, such as the delay of three Obamacare taxes, but does not long-term funding guarantees for the military or a codification of the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. He is planning a meeting Wednesday with Texas Republican Sen. But by Sunday, Trump was telling anyone who would listen that he is "not a racist", and that he hadn't actually made the "shithole" remark.

"I've lost all trust in Durbin", Trump said. Many on both sides of the aisle were quick to call out the comment as racist, a claim that Trump denied. Republicans overwhelmingly say there is no chance for a deal to get done by this week.

"It's the opposite of what I campaigned for", Trump told Reuters in an interview.

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.

According to the White House, Trump will address the marchers live from the Rose Garden at the White House, a location usually reserved for more formal announcements.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied, "We don't need more Haitians'". "That's what struck me", Nielsen said.

"This has turned into an "s-show" and we need to get back to being a great country where Democrats and Republicans work together to do something that we should have done years ago".
