Eric Trump defends president over racism: 'My father sees one color: green'

21 Janvier 2018

An aide held the poster aloft right behind Sen.

During a discussion on the soaring Dow Jones Industrial Average, co-host Brian Kilmeade urged Trump to talk about his father's reported comments and his thoughts on those calling the president a racist.

Accounts suggest that when Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with the status were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the president responded: "Haitians?" "Norway is a predominantly white country, isn't it?" he asked, rhetorically.

"I know personally about his feelings towards Haiti and toward Central America because when I was not a candidate for president and he wasn't a candidate for president I went down there on a medical mission trip". "But I imagine that is the case". "It was so offensive to me that she lied under oath".

United States senator Richard Durbin, who was in the White House meeting, said the President had used the term.

Implementing the president's decisions is the responsibility of the government officials who work for him.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says President Donald Trump is "not going to apologize for trying to fix our immigration system", as the fall-out continues from Trump's reported use of a vulgarity to describe some African countries.

Trump said Democrats aren't for securing the border and stopping the flow of drugs. Lindsey Graham said on Tuesday.

"When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Hatians? I understand that. But I'll tell you this: I stand by every word I said about what was said and what happened".

Durbin said the soon-to-be-introduced immigration plan includes some "painful concessions" on some issues to Mr. Trump's stance.

Ivana Trump, who has three children with the President - Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric - said his use of Twitter was "actually not bad" as the media "change everything you say".

"He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country". Graham pushed back on him.

Even though the president insists he is not a racist, others do not agree. And Nielsen appeared to realize her slavish defense of Trump was doing her no good. "Again, I'm not saying this is better. I am committed to working with Republicans and Democrats to find common ground so we can move forward".

Several Democratic representatives have said they intend to skip the president's State of the Union address later this month over the comments, accusing the president of racism. Cory Booker, D-N.J., "seething with anger", pounced on Nielsen for her convenient memory loss under oath and her attempt to "dismiss" questions about the episode. "Your silence and your amnesia is complicity", Booker said. Department spokesperson Clayson Monyela says the department wanted to take action in order to protect and affirm the dignity of African people.
