White House insiders tussle over Donald Trump vulgarity

While much of the discussion online was sceptical of the claims made in the president's medical report, some defended Mr Trump and slammed the girther movement. "It was a meeting of 12 people". But she says she doesn't "dispute the president was using tough language".

Trump slammed Durbin in a Twitter post on Monday, saying "Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting".

"I can not agree to a deal that does not give the tools and resources to the men and women of Homeland Security to do the job you have asked them to do", Nielsen told Durbin at a different point in their ten minute back and forth.

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, angrily criticized Nielsen's comments, telling her during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, "Your silence and your amnesia is complicity".

In total, Donald Trump shares the beliefs of white supremacists, has surrounded himself with white supremacists, has emboldened white supremacist violence and is advancing policies meant to protect and expand white privilege and white power.

"All data indicates the president is healthy and will remain so for the duration of his presidency", doctor Ronny Jackson told a White House briefing following last week's physical, which determined the 71-year-old to be in "excellent" health. Trump isn't known to exercise beyond short walks, and he uses a cart when he plays golf.

Nobody has yet produced a recording of the now-infamous meeting in which Mr. Trump used a vulgarity - take your pick as to which variant - but it's pretty clear that he did.

Trump and some Republicans have said the senators' agreement is insufficient. Nearly immediately, NBC's Hallie Jackson asked about the president's "mental fitness" and the White House physician answered "I've spent nearly every day in the president's presence ..."

There is internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "s--hole" or "s--house".

More than three-quarters of the 1.2 million people who legally settle in the United States each year never pass any qualifying test for their fitness to live and work here.

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. "And maybe for Mr. Trump himself to consider immigrants as contributors to advancing science, advancing our societies".

Graham is still talking to immigration hardliners, but he's also convinced his own framework, brokered with Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., is now the only one that can pass.

Complicating those discussions on Tuesday, the Department of Justice announced it was appealing a federal court order issued last week that forced the Trump administration to temporaratily reinstate the DACA program, which it had started to phase-out months ago.

Sen. Graham said that he doesn't believe that DACA can be agreed upon with border security, but wants those Americans living in the limbo that is their DACA status to know that they are not forgotten.

Jackson said Trump encouraged him to speak with reporters about the physical, and to take every question they had. You bet, but that's hardly a new development (ask the Mexicans likened to rapists or those who protested neo-Nazis yet were equated to them, and on and on).

Pushing back, Graham argued that it would pass in the House if the President would support it. If we are going to assume anything about her at all, it is that she would be mad about it.
