Donald Trump aces mental aptitude test designed by an immigrant to Canada

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin was one of the lawmakers in the room when the president reportedly used a vulgar term while referring to countries caught up in the immigration debate.

The President also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the USA, according to a number of accounts of the meeting. Trump said he would prefer more people from places like Norway instead.

Meanwhile, a growing chorus of obstructionist Democrats, including Maxine Waters and John Lewis, plan to boycott Trump's first State of the Union address on January 30 to protest his alleged "sh*thole" comment.

A confidant of Trump's told The Associated Press that the president spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction on his inflammatory remarks.

Trump's predecessors, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush, were fitness enthusiasts, but Trump has no daily workout routine.

The White House physician, Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, said Trump is 6 feet 3 inches and weighs 239 pounds, one pound shy of being categorized as obese.

On Monday, Trump again seemed to suggest he didn't say "shithole". Finally, she announced that "I have nothing further to say on a meeting that happened over a week ago".

"I know what happened. That I can tell you".

"Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here?" he said, according to the Washington Post, as part of the discussions over a bipartisan immigration deal.

Tom Cotton said in a Friday statement that they did not recall the "shithole" comment, and Cotton on Sunday also accused Durbin of misrepresenting Trump's comments. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military", Trump tweeted.

"They were vile, hate-filled, and clearly racial", said Durbin. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he later wrote in a separate tweet.

Hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the country illegally as children - so-called "Dreamers" - face deportation unless a compromise can be reached that would grant them rights to stay.
