South Africa protests to United States embassy over Trump remarks

Media reports said Mr. Trump favoured immigrants from Norway and Asia, saying they help the country economically. "I've not seen one of them that's inaccurate". He also accused Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of IL, of a "gross misrepresentation" of Trump's words.

While Graham has not directly confirmed Trump's remarks in the meeting, the South Carolina Republican has praised Durbin repeatedly and noted that he told Trump in the meeting that America is "not defined by its people but by its ideals". Now I don't know where that guy went.

President Donald Trump with first lady Melania Trump waves as he returns to the White House in Washingto on Monday January 15. David Perdue, R-Ga., and Sen. Tom Cotton in an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation" with host John Dickerson.

Graham released a statement Friday saying that he "said my piece" to Trump over whatever was said. Trump, who has taken a hard stance against illegal immigration, announced a year ago that he will end the program unless Congress comes up with a solution by March. Senator Graham has told others the reports were basically accurate. "I use those words advisedly".

"I tried to make it very clear to the president that when you say 'I'm an American, ' what does that mean?"

Graham said Congress and the White House still could come up with a deal on DACA, as long as it contained some measures on border security and changes to the legal immigration system.

Our work will be cut out for us keeping them contained and hopefully giving them some things that can cause them some problems". Henry scored the game-winning touchdown versus Jacksonville two weeks ago to clinch a playoff spot for the Titans .

"Yes, John, I didn't hear that word either".

Two Trump allies came out publicly on Sunday to dispute that Trump decried immigrants coming from "sh-hole countries" and sought to cast doubt on Durbin's public account of the meeting. Republicans will need at least some Democratic votes to pass a bill ahead of a Friday deadline.

"Relations between South Africa and the United States, and between the rest of Africa and the United States, must be based on mutual respect and understanding", said a South African Foreign Ministry statement Monday. It was best said a long time ago, E Pluribus Unum - Out of Many, One.

"We're ready, willing and able to make a deal on DACA, but I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal ... What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" The Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program shields those individuals, often called the Dreamers, from deportation.

"I think this man, this president, is taking us back to another place", John Lewis, a Georgia congressman who was on the front lines of the 1960s civil rights movement, said Sunday on ABC's "This Week".

Answering a question from Durbin, Nielsen replied, "I don't specifically remember a category - categorization of countries in Africa".
