NAACP president on Trump: 'We know he's a racist'

Trump just made the immigration deal he wants that much harder

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", the president said.

President Trump's reported vulgar and dismissive comment about Haiti and certain African countries has received criticism, including in San Antonio.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting, said Trump did use the words, which Durbin called "hate-filled, vile and racist".

Today as Trump signed a proclamation at the White House honoring Martin Luther King Jr. It really does not exemplify that office and really deplore those kinds of comments and would say these are not the kind of statements that should be made. I understand how powerful they are.

'I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday. "You have seen the comments in the press". "I've not read one of them that's inaccurate".

Trump's Vulgar Remarks on Immigration Confirmed by Senator

Lindsay Lohan is Apparently Designing Her Very Own "Lohan Island" in Dubai
The Mean Girls actress is now living in the United Arab Emirates and has an interest in a number of business ventures. But perhaps the most interesting part of the segment is when Williams asks Lohan about her current projects.

The president's first Twitter post Friday morning did not address the language he used, but instead called the immigration deal that would protect undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children "a big step backwards". It is not true. "But, at the same time I take an oath, and that is to make sure we are protecting the people of the United States of America, and there is a lot of trafficking, a lot of things going on at our borders that need to be more secure", said Walker. "The largest group's El Salvadoran, the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian".

"I'm bothered by what he said, but I don't think the entire America would agree with him", Charitable said.

Trump's alleged statement also prompted outrage from the African Union (AU), the organization that includes all the 54 African UN states plus Western Sahara, which is not recognized by the UN. He pointed to Trump's 2015 comments on Mexican immigrants, who Trump said are "rapists" and bringing drugs and crimes to the U.S.

That's when Durbin says the President interrupted.

Johnson rejected Trump's claim in a 2015 CNN interview in which the President said he was "the least racist person", declaring that "he's a racist both in his actions and his words". "Those places are unsafe, dirty, they're corrupt and they're poor and that's the main reason those immigrants are trying to come here, and you would too if you lived there". "I appreciate Senator Durbin's statements and have enjoyed working with him and many others on this important issue", Graham said.
