Maine's congressional delegation denounces Trump's reported vulgar remarks

Was in the room.

Jean, who was born in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince and is now secretary general of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie, called Trump's reported remarks "insulting".

Trump on Friday denied describing certain nations as "shithole countries" after triggering global outrage.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA is an Obama-era protection for those who arrived in the country illegally when they were children. Trump and Congress are trying to resolve it after Trump ended the program.

He described his language as tough but not derogatory.

President Trump tweeted he never said anything derogatory about Haitians, other than Haiti is a very poor and troubled country.

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of U.S. citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

El Salvador's foreign ministry said the U.S. president had "implicitly" accepted the use of "harsh terms detrimental to the dignity of El Salvador and other countries". Made up by Dems. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

South Africa bowled out for 335 runs in first innings
In conditions perfectly suited to his game, impetuousness or nerves had cost Pujara a massive opportunity to score some runs. Kagiso Rabada (11) then hung around for nearly 12 overs with Du Plessis, adding 42 for the eighth wicket.

Democrats have dismissed Trump's denial of the offensive comments, with Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the meeting, disputing Trump's account.

'My colleague, Republican senator Lindsey Graham of SC, spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said, ' Durbin said in the Capitol, CNN reported.

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.

Then, Durbin said that the president began to describe immigration from Africa that would be protected under the bipartisan proposal.

Akufo-Addo's predecessor, John Dramani Mahama, also criticized Trump's comments Saturday. When it comes to immigration reform and securing our borders, we have urgent and serious needs to address and many critical policies to debate.
