Ivana Trump says president 'definitely not racist'

BROOKLYN MEDIA GROUP

While attending an event in Chicago to honor Martin Luther King Jr.

Mr. Trump is widely reported to have described African countries as "shithole" countries in an immigration meeting with US senators last week.

"I think he loves to wheel and deal, he likes to make decisions, he likes to do contracts".

"DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our military", Trump wrote on Twitter. He also reported the 6-foot-3 president weighed in at 239 pounds - three pounds heavier than he was in September 2016, the last time Trump revealed his weight to the public. It said the comments showed that the Trump administration had a "huge misunderstanding of the African continent", and it demanded a US apology to all people of African descent worldwide.

"I would say right now on a day-to-day basis, he doesn't have a dedicated, defined exercise program", said Jackson. "He doesn't sleep much", he said.

Cotton told CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the word used - "and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was".

The reverberations kept coming Monday. Trump said on Sunday: "I'm not a racist".

Before a dinner with Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., at Trump's golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida, the president denied making the "s-hole" remark.

The Haitians and their supporters shouted, "Our country is not a shithole", according to video posted by WPEC-TV, and engaged in a shouting match with the pro-Trump demonstrators who typically gather on the other side of the street.

President Trump scored 30 out of 30 on the exam. "So don't give my number out, but call me", Graham said, adding that "this has turned into an s-show, and we need to get back to being a great country, where Democrats and Republicans can work together to do something that we should have done years ago".

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted.

Ronny Jackson had issued a blanket declaration that Trump was in "excellent health" after last Friday's exam and promised to provide a fuller readout on Tuesday. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity. Lindsey Graham brought a plan to Trump that involved cutting the visa lottery in half and, at the behest of the Congressional Black Caucus, the rest would go to underrepresented countries in Africa and Temporary Protective Status nations, including Haiti. "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.

Another White House official told ABC News the comment reflects the president's "America First" policy. But diplomats have been instructed to "reaffirm that the USA remains committed to its relationships with these countries and cares deeply about their people", he added.

"He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country. He runs the country as a business", she said.
