Is DACA deal headed for disaster?

Democrats said the negotiated plan addressed Trump priorities, including $2.7 billion for additional border security funding. Dick Durbin, who said the president used the term "s-thole countries", referring to him as "Dicky" and blaming him for scuttling a deal to help young immigrants, New York Post reported."Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting".

Many of the President's detractors believed that calling Africa a "sh*thole" was a new low for Trump, who's saying that the allegation that he used the word is actually hindering his efforts to make a deal for the protection of Dreamer immigrants. Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) said in an interview with ABC's This Week on Sunday of Trump, "I think he is a racist".

Ivana Trump, who has three children with the President - Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric - said his use of Twitter was "actually not bad" as the media "change everything you say". "I don't know where that guy went".

Like other excuses for Trump's latest racist immigration remarks, this one is very, uh, shitty. He was accused of describing African nations as a shithole in a bipartisan Oval Office meeting on immigration reform. DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival and protects children of undocumented immigrants.

Trump referred to comments made by Sen.

The remarks, Durbin said, were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

Many slammed Trump's reported remarks as racist, noting that the president reportedly suggested the U.S. take more people from "countries like Norway", where the population is predominantly white, as opposed to Haiti and Africa. Trump's claim was backed up by a number of senior Republican lawmakers who reportedly said they do not remember the POTUs making the remark.

What did the president allegedly say?

Critics of the president, including some in his own Republican Party, attacked the vulgar comments he made behind closed doors.

The President has denied he had used the word "shithole" but admitted being "tough" during the meeting.

Trump was said to have told them that instead of granting temporary residency to citizens of countries hit by natural disasters, war or epidemics, the USA should be taking in migrants from countries like Norway.

"He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

Trump said a federal government shutdown "could happen" at the end of the week, insisting Democrats would be blamed if that occurs even though Republicans control both chambers of Congress and the White House.
