I'm not racist, Trump says after 'shithole countries' remark

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee in Capitol Hill Tuesday Jan. 16 2018 in Washington. Kirstjen said she

An aide held the poster aloft right behind Sen. Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., was at the infamous meeting with Trump and told others about his racist language.

She did not address whether any variation of the word was used by Trump.

More: Did Trump use vulgar language at an immigration meeting? "Norway is a predominantly white country, isn't it?" he asked, rhetorically.

"I know what happened", he said. "But I imagine that is the case".

Just as Nielsen "imagines" Norwegians are white, I imagine that she, in her denial of the obvious and defense of the indefensible, is the latest Trump sycophant to trash her reputation.

During a government shutdown, the National Park Service typically closes federal parks and monuments until the lapse in funding ends.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters that Trump "hasn't said he didn't use strong language" in the meeting with bipartisan lawmakers in the heated immigration debate last week.

"I hope you remember me", Durbin began acidly.

I did about 200 cataract surgeries with a group of surgeons in Haiti, and the same in Central America, and when we asked Donald J. Trump as a private citizen to support those trips, he was a large financial backer of both medical mission trips.

"I think there's a couple of places where the administration needs to get nominees forward to the Senate, Margaret, I accept that".

"I didn't hear it, and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was", Cotton said, adding, "And I know what Dick Durbin has said about the president's repeated statements is incorrect".

Trump soon began to insist he hadn't used derogatory words, but this did nothing to temper the global outrage, notes The Guardian.

"We appreciate the fact that she came, and she talked about all the cooperation between the United States and Africa, and that Africa is very important for the United States", Ndong Mba said.

"He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country". The president of the United States of America is, and has always been, a racist.

"I say this not just as a mayor who has a diverse city and a responsibility ... to have one city, one future".

"On this and other things, we can find a way forward".

President Donald Trump says he wants immigrants to come to the US from "everywhere", despite having said behind closed doors that he'd prefer more immigrants from countries like Norway and not Africa. Cory Booker told "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday. "Your silence and your amnesia is complicity", Booker said.

During earlier in the hearing, Nielsen said emotions at Thursday's immigration meeting were heated and curse words were said by multiple people in the room.

Elsewhere in the city on Monday, Mayor Rahm Emanuel also weighed in on the ongoing storm over Trump's comments.
