Trump blames Senator Durbin for blowing immigration deal

During the testimony, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) ripped into her for her answers regarding President Donald Trump's alleged comments disparaging certain countries.

"I was struck more by the fact that the conversation - although passionate and appropriately so - had gotten to a place where many people in the room were using inappropriate language in the oval office in front of the President".

Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), other participants in the meeting, seemed to backtrack on a prior statement regarding the president's language in separate interviews on Sunday. Trump has denied using the word, though he has said the conversation was tough and has spoken privately with friends about the remark playing well with his base.

Later Leahy pressed her again.

He called it "unacceptable" that Nielsen said she didn't recall the President's words.

A few minutes later, Sen. "You "don't remember.' You 'can't remember" the words of your commander-in-chief. We were at two meetings together" last week. Senator Patrick Leahy asked Nielsen whether Norway was predominantly white. He described them as at odds with the idea that people are judged "by the content of their character" rather than the color of their skin or their country of origin.

"How did he characterize those countries?" "I remember specific cuss words being used by a variety of members".

Scribblenauts Showdown brings the series back in March after four years away
All previous games in the series, including the cancelled mobile game Scribblenauts: Fighting Words, were developed by 5th Cell. If you're more of a Billy No Mates on the other hand, then you can plump for the same offering in single-player environment.

"I don't recall him saying that exact phrase", Nielsen said. Nielsen came prepared with a laundry list of disingenuous euphemisms for "racism", alternately describing the president's words as "tough", "rough", "strong", and "cuss words".

She later added, "I heard [Trump] repeating what he had learned in a meeting before; that they are industrious, they are hardworking, they don't have much crime, they don't have much debt". "No sir", Nielsen said.

"It's not going to be a priority of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement", she said. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) told the Post and Courier that Senator Lindsey Graham, who was also there, that he had told him Trump's reported comments were "basically accurate". Durbin asked if Graham was repeating exactly what the president had said.

"I don't-, I don't specifically remember a categorization of countries in Africa", she replied.

Durbin and Nielsen also said that part of Trump's frustrations during the meeting stemmed from his request that Congress immediately pay $20 billion to complete construction of a new southern border wall in one year.

Asked if the administration has a tally of how numerous foreign-born nationals it counted in its terrorism survey came to the USA based on chain migration or the diversity lottery, a senior administration who briefed reporters on condition of anonymity said the administration does not.
