Trump Insists He's The 'Least Racist Person'

Ever since he made the statement, Mr Trump has tweeted retractions claiming that he is not a racist and that he never used such language during an Oval Office meeting on immigration last Thursday.

"I didn't hear it, and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was", Cotton said on Face the Nation Sunday.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied, "We don't need more Haitians'". But language like the kind the president used last week cuts to the core of what his presidency means - and what it's doing to foreign relations, to the business of governing, and to the future of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants, almost 6,000 of them in Pennsylvania, and more than 22,000 in New Jersey.

"My dad sees one shading: green", Eric Trump said amid a meeting on "Fox and Friends" "He thinks about the economy".

"I have no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions", Ronny Jackson said on Tuesday. David Perdue, R-Ga., said Trump, "did not use that word", and that multiple media accounts of the meeting were a "gross misrepresentation".

"I did not hear that word used, no sir", Nielsen testified at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, when asked if the President had used that word or similar language to disparage African countries in the meeting with lawmakers on immigration policy. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. and Rep. Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., apparently have been stricken mute.

Trump also dedicated his weekly address to Martin Luther King, adding: "It is the dream of a nation faithful to its founding principle that we are all created equal".

Even Sen. Tim Scott, the junior senator from SC, was careful not to get between Graham and the rest of his GOP colleagues on the matter of who said what at the White House. "We have a lot of sticking points, but they are all Democrat sticking points".

There is nothing inherently racist about the free-market conservatism that Republicans cherish and advocate.

Farris' explanation left the host visibly confused, as he went on to suggest that bigots like Trump can't be racist if they're unaware of their own racism.

That's what the immigration battle is really about.

Trump has denied using that word. He also questioned why the United States didn't welcome more people from places like Norway instead. "Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch". Who can argue against merit?

Kuntzman made everyone realise that Trump's height has apparently grown an inch as well!

"His strong, peaceful, and lifelong crusade against segregation and discrimination brought our Nation closer to the founding ideals set forth in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence".

Perdue and Arkansas GOP Sen. McCarthy, and Goodlatte, do you want a race-based immigration system, too?
