Trump accuses Democrats of holding immigration deal

Donald Trump doesn't think much of Africa or Haiti for that matter. He couldn't have made that anymore more clear

US immigration authorities said on Saturday that they will resume accepting requests under a program that shields young people brought to the United States illegally from deportation after a court order blocked a government decision to end the program. He said Democrats only want to take money away from the military.

"My standard is very simple, AMERICA FIRST & MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!" the president tweeted.

It was during a meeting to discuss DACA that Mr Trump was accused of using the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and other nations.

Republicans and Democrats were already at odds over funding the government, and the negotiations became more complicated after Democrats - whose votes are needed to pass a government funding bill - insisted immigration be included.

But that agreement was cast into doubt the same day when a firestorm erupted after reports surfaced that President Donald Trump, during a meeting with lawmakers over an immigration bill, asked why the US was accepting immigrants from "s-thole countries" referring reportedly to immigrants from Africa.

The agency said on Saturday that people who were previously granted deferred action under the program could request a renewal if it had expired on or after September 5, 2016. The party is now using the program as a political bargaining chip in Congress's debate over the federal budget, demanding that any deal to keep the government funded must include protections for DACA recipients, also known as DREAMers.

Trump last week rejected an immigration deal drafted by a bipartisan group of senators.

At a dinner in Florida Sunday night, Trump told reporters he is "ready and willing to make a deal" on DACA, and repeated his assertion that Democrats aren't. He told reporters at one of his Florida golf clubs: "I'm not a racist". They don't want security at the border, they don't want to stop the drugs. They don't want security at the border, there are people pouring in.

Last week, Trump sparked outrage when he said, "Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here?" referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, as reported by The Washington Post. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, instead blaming the media for distorting his meaning, said the confidant, who wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Trump-appointed U.S. Ambassador (and New York Jets owner) Woody Johnson said the new embassy "did not cost the U.S. taxpayer a cent" because it was entirely paid for by the sale of other London properties.

Ferrigno says the federal court decision is only temporary.

The White House meeting between President Trump and lawmakers on immigration issues that took place live on television Tuesday seems to have hurt Trump's cause. Dick Durbin, who was at the White House meeting, said Friday that the President "said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly".

Alsup, however, ruled that the plaintiffs were likely to succeed that in their claims that Trump's decision to end the program was "arbitrary and capricious" and based on a faulty legal premise.

"I do not believe DACA is dead", Nielsen said on "Fox News Sunday".

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who was also in the meeting said she didn't recall Trump using those exact words, but she recognized Trump used a "strong language". Cotton said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the vulgar word used. "And I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Perdue said on ABC's "This Week". Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., that Trump definitely made the remark. Sen.
