Trump speaks for racists, not all of US

"Dr. King's dream is our dream".

What this big game of telephone misses is that it doesn't really matter whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse" or "craphole" or any of the various other derogatory names in that vein.

African American leaders, however, expressed deep concern about the direction of the nation. Trump's message could not be clearer: Why are we taking in immigrants from places primarily populated by black and brown people when we should be taking in more white immigrants?

The president of the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People, Cornell Brooks, evoked "the eloquence of Dr. King's example" in a tweet.

And, there is no dispute - not from Trump, his White House, his defenders or his detractors - over the sentiment Trump was trying to get across in the immigration meeting last Thursday.

Asked what he thinks about people who think he is racist, Trump said, "No, No".

Some Democrats are threatening to vote against a budget deal unless it includes DACA protections. Mr Trump will have to make do with immigrants who are - how shall we put this? - darker than Norwegians.

Nicaragua today joined the worldwide chorus of criticism directed at US President Donald Trump over his reported slur against some poor nations.

So far, formal protests against Mr. Trump's comments have been issued by the governments of South Africa, Botswana, Senegal, Ghana and Haiti, and more protests are expected this week.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat at Thursday's meeting, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.

Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) told the Post and Courier that Senator Lindsey Graham, who was also there, that he had told him Trump's reported comments were "basically accurate".

"Did you see what various senators in the room said about my comments?" he asked.
