I am not a racist, says Trump

Trump posted a tweet, making a vague denial of something that was being reported but not specifying the language with which he took issue.

Americans remembered civil rights hero Martin Luther King on his holiday Monday, a day after US President Donald Trump vehemently denied he is a racist amid an uproar over a reported slur.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", he tweeted.

Durbin, in the process: "I certainly didn't hear what Sen". In addition, voters must "rid the House and the Senate of as many of Trump's defenders, apologists and accomplices as possible".

There is internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "s-thole" or "s-thouse". "I'm the least racist person you will ever interview", as he was entering Trump International Golf Course.

The banner ad will also include the hashtag #weaccept, which the company began using during its Super Bowl ad past year in response to President Trump's travel ban. "I am stunned that this is their defense" of suggesting that it was a slightly different word used. "I think he has been clear, and I think undoubtedly the president will continue to use strong language when it comes to this issue, because he feels very passionate about it", Nielsen said in an interview on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace on Sunday.

Certain Republicans have rallied behind Trump, casting doubt on what he said at the meeting with Republican and Democratic lawmakers. Deals can't be made when there is no trust! "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military".

He was referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects young people who came to the U.S.as children and are living here illegally.

She said she credits their children with his political rise and victory. I understand that. But I'll tell you this: "I stand by every word I said about what was said and what happened". It's not a stretch to say that he is a white supremacist. Additionally, Sen. Lindsey Graham told fellow South Carolina Republican Sen. "It doesn't change what they do", Goldstein said.

Qatar's overseas minister says Gulf disaster is throughout a girl
A second incident as well on Monday on Etihad flight EY23B from Abu Dhabi International Airport to Bahrain International Airport. Bahrain, one of the countries boycotting Qatar, said Emirates Flight EK837 was intercepted, its state-run news agency said.

Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga., who were also present, said initially that they did "not recall the president saying these comments specifically" and later that he didn't utter that particular obscenity.

Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, instead blaming the media for distorting his meaning, a confidant of Trump's told The Associated Press. "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems". It was another apparent sign of Mr. Trump's lack of interest in diplomacy or foreign relations, in Africa as elsewhere.

"2.7M guests from Airbnb decided that countries in Africa, El Salvador, and Haiti were handsome enough to visit".

Waters said she will not go to the Capitol to "listen to a liar". The State Department is expecting more diplomats to be called in this week, Goldstein said.

"In the spirit of the people of Haiti we feel in the statements, if they were made, the president was either misinformed or miseducated about Haiti and its people", he said in a statement.

"Out", Trump said when pressed on a follow-up.

After Trump's disgusting remarks, he was quickly condemned by fellow politicians, reporters, celebrities, and the general public. He followed up by asking a black reporter whether she was friends with the members of the Congressional Black Caucus and if she could set up a meeting.
