    Lindsey Graham Challenged President on Immigration Remark, Sen. Says

    Lindsey Graham Challenged President on Immigration Remark, Sen. Says

    Dick Durbin says his colleagues comments showed real 'political courage.'
    wltx 1:02 PM. EST January 12, 2018

    Washington, DC (CBS, AP) - A senator present at a White House immigration meeting says President Donald Trump used vulgar language to describe African countries, saying he "said these hate filled things and he said them repeatedly."

    But Sen. Dick Durbin also said that South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham challenged those comments, which Durbin called an act of courage.

    Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, on Friday told reporters that Trump questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and that he referenced "shithole countries" in Africa.

    "As Senator [Lindsey] Graham [of South Carolina] made his presentation, the president interrupted him several times with questions and in the course of his comments said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist. I use those words advisedly, I understand how powerful they are. But I cannot believe in the history of the White House in that office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday.

    "You've seen the comments in the press. I've not read one of them that's inaccurate. To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words. It is not true. He said these hateful things and he said them repeatedly."

    "When we started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bi-partisan major, that's when he used his vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from "shitholes." The exact word used by the present. Not more -- not just once, but repeatedly.

    "When it came to the issue of quote, chain migration, I said to the president, "Do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African Americans believe that they migrated to America in chains, and when you speak about chain migration, it hurts them personally. He said, 'Oh, that's a good line.' And then when I talked to him about the impact this has on family unification, in a nation that values families with the flag as the most important symbols of our future, they scoffed at this notion. It was a heartbreaking moment."

    Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians ... he said, 'Haitians? Do we need more Haitians?'"

    Trump said on Twitter Friday that his language during the meeting was "tough," but "this was not the language used." He did not specifically deny using the word "shithole."

    Durbin made a point of bringing up Graham's reaction while the meeting was taking place.
    .
    'My colleague, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said. I was very proud of him. It took courage for what he did, and, I made my own comments in response to it. But for him to confront the president as he did -- literally sitting next to him -- took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it."

    The group of senators had come to the White House to discuss a potential compromise on immigration. The president reportedly rejected their idea for the time being.

    Oh, poor Lindsay. No more golf for you!!

    This is just proof beyond any measure, that you can not trust these stupid eternally dumb Amnesty Blackmailers with the best interest of the United States and the American People. They can't make the right choice between representing Americans and representing foreign nationals at the expense of and to the risk of Americans. They can't make the right choice between disclosing a private comment to the world wide news media that out of context or accuracy said in the privacy of a meeting on an important issue that could hurt feelings, create divide, and yes, even threaten our relationships with other nations and trying to damage or hurt a political opponent. They would rather use the comment to hurt people and nations for no reason other than to poke at our President.

    Trump uses his language very specifically for specific purposes. So we'll see soon what he's up to. So funny Durbin ran right out with the bait and talked to the press with Graham on his tail. Yet neither one answered the President's simple questions of why do we need more Haitians or more immigrants from these countries? They remind me of that awful hateful girl on Little House on the Prairie, Nellie, who was always running to the teacher tattle tailing on Laura, who was always trying to do good but sometimes breaking the rules to do so.

    Hey, Trump should send Durbin and Graham on a fact-finding mission to Haiti, Nigeria and El Salvador to conduct research on the economic condition of the countries and to smooth over any ruffled feathers they caused by their public statements about a private meeting with the President of the United States. Send all the press to cover their every move.
