Durbin spokesman: GOP senator has no…

Trump's dancing monkeys break bipartisan hearts

Several officials who were in the room at the time of US President Donald Trump's alleged use of a vulgar term to refer to African countries say they did not hear such language.

Trump offered a vague denial Friday, and on Sunday, he declared the talks to be failing.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) maintains that he heard it, while Sens.

"I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals", his statement concluded. Trump has denied making those comments. And that he very likely lied to the nation about it the next day by claiming he didn't say it.

Sen. Tom Cotton, an Arkansas Republican, echoed Perdue's comments during an appearance on CBS' Face the Nation.

The comments have also left her parents upset, she added, especially because they once told Vice President Mike Pence they were praying for him. Graham told a fellow South Carolina Republican, Sen.

A source familiar with the meeting told CNN's Jake Tapper the President did not refer to Haiti as a "shithole" country but Trump did ask why the U.S. needs more Haitians and pushed to "take them out" of the deal.

"I didn't hear that word either, I certainly didn't hear what Senator Durbin has said repeatedly", Cotton said.

It is alleged Trump questioned why the United States would accept more people from Haiti and "sh**hole countries".

Once it was clear by mid-afternoon on Thursday that Trump was not going to support the bipartisan deal, the group led by Durbin and Graham issued a terse statement.

"Why do we want all these people from "shithole countries" coming here?" But instead of winning Trump's support, as they had expected, the president launched into a broadside against immigration from Haiti and Africa. Linsey Graham] also told [Sen.

Given Trump's record with the truth, we find Durbin more believable in this case. "I can not believe in this history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday".

While some Republicans hope to gain leverage by dragging out negotiations and increase the risk that DACA recipients could lose status and even be deported, advocates have made clear to Democrats they should feel empowered to reject a deal that benefits DACA immigrants at the expense of scores of others and their families.

Lashing out at Perdue and Cotton's comments on Sunday, Durbin's Communications Director Ben Marter tweeted, 'Credibility is something that's built by being consistently honest over time'.
