White House Claiming Sweeping 'Executive Privilege' in Russia Probe

Anti-Trump protesters line the sidewalks as President Donald Trump's motorcade returns to Mar-a Lago in West Palm Beach Fla. Monday Jan. 15 2018 after Trump played golf at Trump International Golf Club

Several people who were at the meeting last week or familiar with the discussions, said Trump disparaged those countries in vulgar, racially tinged terms.

He remained optimistic it was possible, saying there was no other option.

"And now he's a great statesman that everybody's looking toward for talking to President Trump and telling President Trump he was wrong", he said.

On Twitter, Trump hit out at Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, who was present at last week's meeting and insisted the president used the slur repeatedly.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted, using a nickname to needle the IL senator. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military", Trump tweeted.

Despite continued efforts by lawmakers seeking a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, including the introduction of a new bipartisan bill, talks seemed to return to the drawing board in the wake of the president's crude dismissal of the Senate "Gang of Six" bipartisan proposal.

Both parties have struggled for months to agree on a spending deal for the rest of the fiscal year that began October 1, and Congress already has had to pass three short-term funding bills.

In her statement Wednesday, Nielsen said she is "thoroughly disappointed" that attention keeps being given to the meeting, when "we have serious and urgent border and immigration issues to address".

Nicaragua today joined the worldwide chorus of criticism directed at US President Donald Trump over his reported slur against some poor nations. They would end the ability of new citizens to sponsor extended relatives for immigration, and also eliminate a lottery program that awards about 50,000 green cards each year to people selected randomly from applicants in countries with low levels of migration to the United States.

There is internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse".

"I'm really thrilled, and happy they made a decision to use it over other tests".

South Carolina Republican Sen.

Jackson said Trump received a flawless score on a cognitive test created to screen for neurological impairment. "People will be in limbo come Monday".

"I think somebody on his staff gave him really bad advice between 10 o'clock to 12 o'clock on Thursday", Graham said. "We just got to keep doing the work".

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.

Maurice Watson, pastor of Metropolitan Baptist Church in Largo, called the reported remark "dehumanizing" and "ugly" and said "whoever made such a statement.is wrong and they ought to be held accountable". Worshippers stood and applauded as Watson spoke.

A confidant of Trump told The Associated Press that the president spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction to his remarks. The official said that although this might enrage Washington, staffers predicted the comment would resonate with Trump's base, similarly to how Trump's attacks on NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem did.

As the firestorm over Trump's comment began late last week, the White House and Trump's National Security Council provided no guidance to the State Department about what to say to foreign countries who were incensed, said a USA official familiar with the conversations between the White House and other federal agencies.

McCarthy briefed his Republican colleagues at a closed-door conference meeting Tuesday night, lawmakers said as they left.

It was the third sentence in the summary, after Jackson wrote that Trump is in "excellent" health and that his cardiac performance "was very good".
