Donald Trump said 'shithouse' and not 'shithole', claims White House source

Donald Trump said 'shithouse' and not 'shithole', claims White House source

A meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers last Thursday made waves after reports emerged that Trump had described Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries" and asked why the United States was accepting immigrants from those places and not countries such as Norway.

The controversy brought out President Trump's, ahem, creative side and "Dicky Durbin" was born.

The screening was carried out using a test called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, on which Trump scored 30/30, Jackson said.

According to newspaper reports, when Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with that status were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the president replied: "Haitians?"

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. In response to speculation that the president has mental health problems, Jackson said, "In my opinion, that's just tabloid psychiatry". "The president is mentally very sharp, very intact".

"I've found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes", he added.

India successfully test-fired the Agni-V ICBM off the Odisha coast on Thursday January 18, 2018. The test was "a major boost to country's defence capabilities", the ministry said.


Asked about Trump's comments, Durbin said, "Politics ain't beanbag". They said Trump expressed a preference for immigrants from countries like Norway, which is overwhelmingly white. Jackson is providing a more detailed readout Tuesday following Trump's first physical last Friday at the Walter Reed military hospital.

A senior White House official said Trump does not believe he has an ally on this issue in Graham, a Republican who has long tried to partner with Democrats on immigration legislation.

Where Dr. Harold Bornstein was shaggy and sensational, Jackson was all business, reading off test results in his blue and gold dress uniform.

Two Trump allies came out publicly on Sunday to dispute that Trump decried immigrants coming from "sh-hole countries" and sought to cast doubt on Durbin's public account of the meeting.

He added, "We got to find a way to work on this man's heart".

The medical examination took place amid questions about his mental fitness for office, spurred by the publication of a damaging book that suggested Trump's own aides worry about his stability.

The White House physician also declared the president as "very healthy" and his overall health "excellent" in spite of his unhealthy habits.

That's according to his White House physician, Navy doctor Ronny Jackson.

Dr Jackson has already increased Mr Trump's cholesterol-lowering medication and recommended a low-carbohydrate and low fat-diet.

During the presidential campaign, Trump's longtime personal physician, Harold Bornstein, famously declared that Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

Jackson also noted that Trump has abstained from alcohol and tobacco for his entire life, which contributed to his relatively good health.

On Tuesday, the White House announced Trump's score: 30 for 30.
