USA senator blasts Republican 'amnesia' over Trump 's***hole' comments

Ms Nielsen responded: "I would just like to say I do clearly abhor violence in all of its forms".

Democratic Senator says Homeland Security Secretary is "complicit" after she says she "did not hear" the president use the term "shithole".

In her statement Wednesday, Nielsen said she is "thoroughly disappointed" that attention keeps being given to the meeting, when "we have serious and urgent border and immigration issues to address".

In her testimony, Nielsen got repeatedly quizzed on whether she heard Trump say "s***hole" while railing against immigration from countries in Africa and Haiti. I had individual meetings with the president and I've had group conversations where there was, as you said, cross-talk.

Nielsen's comments came five days after the president ignited what Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont asked Nielsen if Norway was predominantly white.

Trump falsely claims his approval among Black Americans has doubled
On fighting terrorism, his grades are a wash - 39 percent give him an "A" or "B", the same percentage that gives him a "D" or "F". His highest approval rating was 45 percent, which was deduced after he took office in January 2017.

"I just think it would have been covered differently if it were a Republican senator yelling or lecturing a woman coming before the Senate, not giving her a chance to explain herself, grandstanding", Ronna McDaniel told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo of "New Day".

"I'm not going to get into all the details of a private meeting". What is the worst thing that allows bigotry and hate to proliferate is people who... stand by and do nothing when it's said.

As the firestorm over Trump's comment began late last week, the White House and Trump's National Security Council provided no guidance to the State Department about what to say to foreign countries who were incensed, said a USA official familiar with the conversations between the White House and other federal agencies.

As Graham and Durbin began describing the deal, Trump said, it was immediately clear it would be unacceptable to most Republicans. "We must stamp that out in our country", he added. There are threats in this country, people plotting. 'Why do we need more Haitians?

Administration officials and lawmakers spent the holiday weekend debating the precise presidential vulgarity used, and moved to cast last Thursday's White House meeting as a salty affair, with expletives flying in all directions.
