His comment clashed with a statement by two other Republican participants Sens. I had trouble trying to figure out how to point out what he said without using the actual word but couldn't find anything that would have conveyed the ugliness of verbiage our president used, so I made a decision to keep it on the header but have blanked out couple of letters most everywhere else.

Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, also a Republican, said he wanted more details of the president's comments.

"For example, let's say you think black people are lesser and let's say you're also going to talk about it in public", he continued.

The White House said it's optimistic an agreement can be reached. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, had been pushing for stronger immigration enforcement and a less generous package for the Dreamers.
