White House Physician: Trump's Cognitive Exam Came Back "Normal"

South Africa protests to US embassy over Trump “shithole” remark President Trump denies making 's—hole' comments, says he's 'not a racist'

"When I heard, I ran across the street", Trump said.

"Your silence and your amnesia is complicity", he said.

"What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" the president tweeted.

Trump challenged that he referred to Haiti and other countries as shitholes last Friday after the White House initially did not deny the slur.

The Illinois Democrat says he and a handful of other senators who crafted a bipartisan immigration deal are working to win over additional supporters.

"Arkansas, great state", Trump said, after noting a woman attending from the state.

"I wasn't very far away", the president said to laughter.

Days after Trump sparked an global uproar by reportedly complaining about immigration from "shithole" countries, his administration sought to refocus the debate by tying a series of current immigration programs to terror threats.

Jackson, the White House physician, said Tuesday that Trump scored a ideal 30 out of 30 on the test.

"He has incredible genes and that's the way God made him".

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. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, instead blaming the media for distorting his meaning, said the confidant, who wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

This sort of commentary from Graham is fairly consistent with the senator's recent appearance on "The View", where he walked back his previous words about Trump.

But he said he became unhappy when Graham and Durbin, who had told him they had a compromise on the Dreamers issue, presented the details.

"Rather than basing admission decisions on programmes that lack accountability, like DV lotteries and family chain migration, adopting a merit-based system rewards skills and qualities that include, but are not limited to, education, English language proficiency or fluency, and/or job skills", he said.

Durbin credited Graham with quickly speaking up against Trump's comments during the meeting. His colleague Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., who was not at the meeting, said Graham told him that Durbin's account was "basically accurate".

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted Monday, using a nickname to needle the IL senator.

"As part of an ongoing conversation this administration has been having with American women there will be a focus on the economy, health care and national security during the President's first year in office", Walters said.

Jackson said he would increase Trump's daily dose of Crestor, a cholesterol-lowering drug, and bring in a nutritionist to work with White House chefs.

Left to its own devices, the State Department came up with its own talking points to be used by US missions in Africa working to stem the damage, said a USA official, who wasn't authorized to disclose internal deliberations and demanded anonymity.

He says it has now been used in 200 countries, in 60 languages, and has been deployed in one developing country to demonstrate its leader was no longer fit to govern. Instead, he wanted more immigration from countries like Norway (and, according to some reports, Asia).
