48% of Americans think Trump's 'shithole' remarks were racist

The White House claimed President Donald Trump to be in "excellent" health on Wednesday following the results of his physical exam, but heart doctors outside of the White House have expressed concern over the president's cholesterol level and his increased susceptibility to having a heart attack.

The Washington Post reported Monday night the source of the dispute is less about the thrust of President Trump's "shithole" comment and more about the second syllable of that vulgar word.

"I know what happened". He told reporters in IL, "I am stunned that this is their defense".

"It is unprecedented and also unpresidential not to host state dinners for heads of government who visit", said Barbara Bordine, a retired US ambassador professor of diplomacy at Georgetown University.

Nielsen surely would have preferred to be in the fjords of Norway, or just about anywhere, to where she was Tuesday: facing questions from both Durbin and Graham, whose integrity she had challenged with her dubious account.

He asked how Trump had characterized African countries. By a roughly 2-to-1 margin, 53 percent to 26 percent, Americans said it was racist to call African countries and Haiti "shithole countries".

But Trump has made clear that what he means to do is halt or reverse the demographic trends that are making this nation increasingly diverse - trends that are wholly consistent with American history.

President Donald Trump is defending his exercise routine after the White House doctor this week said he doesn't really have one.

"Tuesday we had a president I was proud to golf with and call my friend", Graham said. But Trump voters, who enthusiastically agreed when he slammed the football protests, were somewhat less supportive of the alleged "shithole countries" remark: Sixty-two percent agreed with the statement, but only about one-third did so strongly, and 23 percent disagreed.

According to the Post, members of his Administration at first thought that the controversy could be settled in the shady realm of "do not recall", since the President had, again, reportedly talked to others about using derogatory language.

"I would not be throwing him a dinner. I'd like to move forward and discuss ways in which we can protect our country". Most people shrink as they age, but amazingly, as noted in the Times article, this president gets taller. Cory Booker, D-N.J. "He challenged the president of the United States, in the Oval Office, on his bigoted, vile statements". Graham himself would say only that "I said my piece directly" to the president and that "I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals".
