Donald Trump says he is not racist

"You're going to see before the end of the day more Republicans stepping forward and saying they don't agree with President Trump's views on immigration", he replied. And let me also say, is that their defense? Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., who, along with Sen.

Trump met Thursday with Graham and other key lawmakers, including Democratic Sen.

And according to the State Department, several countries have summoned USA diplomats to the respective nations they reside in to answer for Trump's comment, with more expected this week.

The comment follows global outrage over Trump's reported vulgar language during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers last week, when he reportedly questioned why the US needs more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" like those in Africa. "It's very sad, it's a race to the bottom", he said, likely referring to Democrats and the media. "Your silence and your amnesia is complicity", said the New Jersey senator after his line of questions.

"If he tweets, it's out of his mouth", she said.

Critics have called Trump a racist over the explosive remarks, which he denied when speaking to reporters in Florida on Sunday night.

And the bottom half of the draw lost another seed when Tomas Berdych strolled past Del Potro in a surprisingly comfortable win. Djokovic needed four match points in the final game which stretched over eight minutes. "You know, it's a warm day".

Martin Luther King III, King's elder son, said: "When a president insists that our nation needs more citizens from white states like Norway, I don't even think we need to spend any time even talking about what it says and what it is".

As well, Durbin and people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorised to describe it publicly said Trump also questioned the need to admit more Haitians.

"Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". Graham asked Kirstjen Nielsen, secretary of Homeland Security, who testified to the House committee.

Perdue described as a "gross misrepresentation" reports that Trump used the vulgarity.

The US president reacted to the outcry on Friday morning with a twisted denial on Twitter: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

On Sunday, Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) denied President Trump referred to Haiti and some African nations as "s-thole countries" during an immigration meeting. "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed, that I can tell you", Trump was quoted as telling reporters by New York Times, at Trump International Golf Club.

The family had lived in Perris since 2014, and deputies had never been to the residence previously for any reason, Fellows said. The couple allegedly chained and beat their kids, whom authorities said had suffered cognitive and nerve damage from the abuse.

"If there was", he said, "I want to just call on the White House right now, release whatever you have". "We are ready, willing and able to make a deal, but they don't want to".

Cotton and Perdue initially indicated they didn't recall what Trump said, before fully denying it on Sunday.

Without explicitly denying using that word, Trump lashed out at Durbin, who said Trump uttered it on several occasions.

He was reported to have branded Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African nations as "shithole countries". But at the meeting Trump's reputation for following the advice of the last person to whom he has spoken showed itself.

Donald Trump's famously, er, candid way of speaking is increasingly having real diplomatic consequences.
