       Report Trump uses crude term during immigration talks

Instead, according to people in the meeting, the president said the USA should accept more immigrants from places like Norway.

While speaking to members of Congress about immigration, President Donald Trump allegedly referred to countries such as Haiti and other African nations as "s***thole countries".

"He will always reject temporary, weak, and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway", the statement concluded.

Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democratic lawmaker, tweeted: "I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency".

Sadiq Khan: Brexit could cost Britain's creative industries 27000 jobs
The capital's economic output would be 2 percent lower in 2030 than what would be expected under a "soft Brexit ". However, the recession predicted during the referendum has not yet materialised.

This is - much like Charlottesville - an abdication of the moral authority of the presidency, but it's more than that: It's saying, quite simply, that saying racist stuff is a-OK as long as it works politically.

In exchange, the USA government agreed to "defer" any action on their immigration status for a period of two years.

Graham and Durbin are leading efforts to codify protections for so-called "dreamers", immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children.

We dance around the word "racist" a lot, because calling someone a racist is a heavy charge that's often almost impossible to prove. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Richard Durbin, D-Ill., had proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent - and prioritizing countries already in the system, the Post reported.

Sams Club stores closing, none locally
Sam's Club locations across the country, including a store in Louisiana , abruptly closed Thursday without warning. Walmart ( WMT ) is closing dozens of Sam's Club stores nationwide, according to numerous media reports .

Trump had seemed amenable to the plan earlier in the day, but his mood shifted during the meeting and he didn't seem interested, the Post said.

The President at times suggested he would be looking to sign everything from a stand-alone fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program - set to expire in March - to comprehensive immigration reform, often appearing to being guided by lawmakers in the room to modify his positions. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga., and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Reps. Bob GoodlatteRobert (Bob) William GoodlatteRosenstein to testify before House Judiciary Committee next week Conservative pressure on Sessions grows Clock ticking down on NSA surveillance powers MORE (R-Va.) were present at the meeting and were surprised by the comments, according to the Post. Protections for immigrants and the visa lottery will likely take a hit as part of the deal.

Trump reportedly made the comments while lawmakers were discussing restoring temporary protection status for immigrants, such as those from El Salvador, who had their status removed this week. And there are hundreds of millions of nonwhite English speakers around the world, many of them in Africa.

"Each of those things is insufficient", a source said. Trump sees immigrants as belonging to one of two categories, good or bad - and the bad immigrants are often the ones who aren't coming from Europe.
