'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used, ' he said. Setting the bar for our current president at Richard Nixon, a notorious anti-Semite and racist, or other similarly controversial presidents from a half-century ago seems like a bad idea.
Retired Ethiopian long-distance runner Haile Gebrselasse, who won his first 10,000 Olympic gold medal in the US city of Atlanta in 1996, told Reuters Trump's comments did not reflect the views of all Americans. One of his strongest messages was to contrast the actions of whites and the governments they controlled to the founding principles of our nation and its Judeo-Christian heritage.
"If you look at all we have in Africa, South Africa is one of the developed countries".

"I doubt that a comment like that would have been made if somebody like me was sitting across the table from him", Love said.
He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once".
When he was running for office, Trump released a glowing report from his personal physician in NY, who said Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency". "It's profoundly disappointing to hear someone in that office use that language". While Trump denied he used that specific word, Sen. "Sometimes the way he expresses is, I think, is not the right way to do it".
The senators are working to codify the protections in DACA.
"If you're trying to push the black people, Spanish people out of America, then why did we fight for America back in the day?"
Trump spent about three hours with military doctors at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, an exam that White House doctor Ronny Jackson said went "exceptionally well".
Durbin said, "We have seven days and the clock is ticking".
The alleged comments came during a DACA meeting on Thursday. Sen. "That's not how a president behaves".
