    Graham: ‘My memory hasn’t evolved’ on Trump ‘shithole’ meeting

    Graham: ‘My memory hasn’t evolved’ on Trump ‘shithole’ meeting

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday said his “memory hasn’t evolved” on the meeting where President Donald Trump reportedly questioned why the U.S. allows in people from “shithole” countries, according to a local news report.

    However, Graham wouldn’t confirm that Trump actually used the word “shithole,” according to The Post and Courier.

    "My memory hasn't evolved,” Graham said. “I know what was said and I know what I said."

    Graham had issued a statement Friday that appeared to back up the report that Trump used such language. "Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday," Graham said. "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel. I’ve always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals."

    Graham’s fellow South Carolina senator, Republican Tim Scott, on Friday also said Graham had told him that reports that Trump used the term “shithole” were “basically accurate.”

    Trump has denied making the comments, and Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) both said on Sunday that they didn’t hear Trump say “shithole.”

    The president has been roundly criticized by Republicans, Democrats and world leaders for allegedly uttering the “shithole” phrase, a remark many have called racist.

    Nope, that is so wrong. We are not an "idea" or a nation of "ideals". We are a nation of citizens, who write the ideas, who pass the laws that codiy them, who enforce them or not, who fight and die for them or not, who wake up every day and go out to work or not and through the work that includes physical work, mental work, political work and creative work to Make Our Country Great for our citizens and visitors. These are the blessings of liberty that our government was formed to promote, insure, defend and protect and does that with .... people whether they all agree with the "ideas" or not, until they are changed or not.
