The Bubble: 'President Trump is a white racist,' liberals say

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Mr Trump tweeted Monday, using a nickname to needle the IL senator.

Sen. Durbin was having none of it, saying if Trump truly feels his comments are being "misrepresented" then he should release any existing recordings from the Oval Office meeting.

"I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal", Trump said. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military".

"We know the country [Haiti] is not a "shithole" country," said Charlemagne Metayer, a Lake Park zoning board member who came to the USA in 1985, became a citizen and is father to four.

The White House said Trump had no intention of apologizing.

We should take his question seriously and answer it for him.

Sen. Tom Cotton, one of the lawmakers summoned to the Oval Office by the president to counter the Durbin-Graham proposal, blasted Durbin's account of the meeting in an interview.

Trump has not clarified to aides what he said, but told reporters Sunday night in Florida that comments attributed to him "weren't made".

Lindsey Graham of SC said Trump had drastically changed his tune on a compromise immigration bill just before the Thursday meeting.

After Mr. Trump's denial, Durbin fired back at the president.

"The point, after all, is this: The President of the United States, in a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators and congressman, derided countries primarily populated by black and brown people and lauded a country (Norway) that is nearly entirely white", Cillizza said.

The president responded to the controversy, denying that he made the comments at all.

These are familiar themes, of course: the vulgarity, the racially-charged comments, the notion that Trump changes his mind based on the last person he's spoken to are tropes you could apply to half the big news from the a year ago.

Several people who were at the meeting last week or familiar with the discussions, said Trump disparaged those countries in vulgar, racially tinged terms.

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

Nielsen says the conversation was impassioned and the president was using tough language.

A century ago, there were nativists who railed against Irish, Italian and Eastern European immigration, claiming that unwashed hordes from poor countries were "mongrelizing" the nation.

Bishop Talbert Swan of the Church of God in Christ, the country's largest Black Pentecostal denomination, tweeted a photo of one of his grandchildren born to what Swan said was his "educated, hard-working" Haitian-American daughter-in-law. In this sense, Trump is just like some Europeans and Americans who, each time they see an African - any African - assume that he or she would do anything to get out of Africa.

Democrats have condemned Trump's remarks as "racist", a charge Sanders rejected as "outrageous". But language like the kind the president used last week cuts to the core of what his presidency means - and what it's doing to foreign relations, to the business of governing, and to the future of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants, almost 6,000 of them in Pennsylvania, and more than 22,000 in New Jersey.
