Former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Calls Donald Trump 'An Embarrassment'

NATION-NOW     On Trump's mental fitness the experts are silenced and the public's in the dark     
       We need to talk about Trump's mental fitness

When Trump and his allies say they want to end "chain migration" - in which family members sponsor other family members for entry - they mean they want to halt the influx of immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries. "Do we need more Haitians?" Lindsey Graham of SC was outlining a tentative bipartisan agreement on immigration they hoped Trump would support.

While Graham has not directly confirmed Trump's remarks in the meeting, the South Carolina Republican has praised Durbin repeatedly and noted that he told Trump in the meeting that America is "not defined by its people but by its ideals".

One person briefed on the Thursday meeting said when Durbin got to Haiti, Trump began to ask why we want people from Haiti and more Africans in the United States and added that the U.S. should get more people from countries like Norway.

"We therefore urge African nations to pressure U.S. embassies in their land to demand an apology from Trump, while also making it known that we recommend that President Trump be regarded as a prohibited immigrant until such a time that he explains, withdraws or apologizes for his misplaced comments".

"I don't think he's a racist, I know he's a racist", Jones said.

"I was pissed when I saw what he said. And in a defense of Senator Graham, his strong words repeated exactly the words used by the President, which you can not remember".

One of Trump's top advisers, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, said on "Fox News Sunday" she did not recall if Trump used "that specific phrase".

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin said.

"I feel this place is more divided, in Ghana it is not like that", he said.

While Trump has publicly denied making the remarks, he reportedly called close friends to weigh their reactions to the controversy, denied he was racist and blamed the media for distorting the meaning of his words.

Trump's tweet followed the president's stop at the Trump International Golf Club in Florida earlier Monday. Trump announced previous year that he will end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, unless lawmakers come up with a solution by March. The president's inflammatory comments left lawmakers struggling to find a path forward. "I'm the least racist person you will ever interview".

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff that the so-called "Gang of Six" immigration plan he's pushing with Sen.

The Post and Courier reported that Graham responded to Trump's comments by telling the president that "America is an idea, not a race".

Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) says he ― and not Sen.

More: Did Trump use vulgar language at an immigration meeting? While that matter works its way through the courts, President Trump on Sunday was blasting Democrats over failed political efforts to reach a deal on the future of some 800,000 illegal immigrant "Dreamers" under DACA. She says "others in the room were also using tough language".
