Presidential aides debate which version of vulgarity Trump uttered

He asked how Trump had characterized African countries. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.

Asked to respond to people who think he's racist, Trump told reporters: "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

The row broke out after Republican and Democratic lawmakers visited the President in the Oval Office on Thursday to work on a proposal for an immigration deal.

The group was "called into the President's office to explain it to him and (found) that (they had) been sandbagged", Durbin said, adding that "any attempt to kill immigration reform probably has Mr. Miller's fingerprints on it".

Nielsen, under oath, said she "did not hear" the word "s--hole", during an exchange with Sen.

There is internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

An escalating war of words between President Trump and congressional lawmakers cast a cloud over a potential deal for immigrants brought into the country illegally by their parents - and also potentially increased the likelihood of a government shutdown by week's end.

"When the cameras are rolling, the president talks of Congress passing a bipartisan bill of love to protect the Dreamers", said Vanita Gupta, the head of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, during a Friday press call.

President Donald Trump is accusing Democratic Sen. Can't blame that on the staff, but I do believe his staff pretty much missed the mark here", Graham told reporters on Tuesday after a hearing with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen NielsenKirstjen Michele NielsenTop Kelly aide expected to become new White House deputy chief of staff: "report MORE.

Trump's half-hearted Twitter denials are fooling nobody, certainly not a US senator who was in the room when he made the comments. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military".

A key issue they need to agree on is what to do with an Obama-era scheme that protects around 800,000 young people who entered the USA illegally as children - known as the Dreamers.

Arsenal 4-1 Crystal Palace
Elsewhere, Manchester United moved to within nine points of runaway league leaders Manchester City with a 1-0 win at Burnley . The Eagles might have endured a 2-3 loss against Arsenal then, but they have been quite decent in their endeavours of late.

Mr Trump announced a year ago that he will end the Obama-era DACA program unless legislators come up with a solution by March.

Jackson has recommended that Trump, whose reported body mass index puts him just below the obesity line, lose between 10 and 15 pounds.

Durbin has said the White House should release whatever recording it might have of the meeting.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, one of the six senators in the meeting with Trump on Thursday, supported Durbin's account. "It's actually based on the merits of whether or not this person's going to be contributing to society", she said in response to a question.

In full damage control, Trump and the White House trashed Wolff and his book as fiction and tabloid garbage while defending the President's mental fitness. "I know what was said, and I know what I said".

Other GOP senators, however, said they believed Cotton and Perdue over Durbin.

After the mid-terms, Democrats would have two years to prepare their all-out effort to block the brash billionaire Trump, who will be 74 by Election Day 2020.

US diplomats in Haiti and other countries have been called to host government offices to hear complaints about the president's comments. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

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. "I stand by every word that I said", Cotton said Tuesday.

"If you don't have a tough skin, this is not a good business to get into", Durbin said. The U.S. president spoke out amid the global furor over vulgar remarks he's said to have made about Africa and Haiti. Sanders was referring to his reality TV show The Apprentice.

President Donald Trump's overall health "is excellent" and he did "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening.
