After sh*thole comment, reporter April Ryan asks Trump if he's racist

Chris Van Hollen said he was "disgusted", while Sen. Although many saw those crass remarks as a clear window into the president's bigoted worldview, Trump's supporters rushed to his defense in an effort to distract from the simple reality at the heart of this latest White House scandal: The president of the United States is a racist man pursuing a racist immigration agenda.

Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday. "The President is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Jackson said.

Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable", telling WPLG-TV in Miami that "if that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it".

"Had he said one thing one time, we might say that was a slip of the tongue or it's an example of unconscious racial bias or it was a mistake", he added. Diversity has always been our strength, not our weakness. In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals'.

In a statement on Friday, Graham reiterated standard pro-immigration, pro-amnesty talking points, claiming he almost reprimanded Trump after he allegedly made the comment.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Sen. "And he said them repeatedly", Durbin told reporters Friday.

"Apart from the vocabulary attributed to him, President Trump is right on target in his sentiment", Robert Jeffress, the evangelical pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas and a presidential adviser, told CBN News. Trump told senators in the Oval Office, according to a source briefed on the meeting, the comments from which were first reported by The Washington Post.

Durbin praised Graham for being willing to confront the president over remarks roundly criticized as crude or racist on Friday - a term used by Hillary Clinton. "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't". It took courage for what he did. We have Haitians teachers teaching American students.

The level of alarm was shared by Dau, who said the idea is to work toward a better world.

Trump himself used Twitter to lash out against Wolff and specifically compared himself to Ronald Reagan, who was the target of claims that his mental capacity diminished in office. "That is all I have to say", Kenyan entrepreneur Wangui Muraguri said. Do we need more Haitians?' Then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure. Take them out, ' though he denies speaking disparagingly about Haitians.

"The words of a president are very powerful words and unfortunately this president has used his words to demean and belittle, instead of uplifting people".

Ryan made his remark Friday at a public forum at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Ryan said his ancestors were Irish and 'were really looked down upon.' He called immigration 'a attractive story of America ' and said Africans in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin, are 'incredible citizens'.
