Folks, I’m sure you remember how Sen. Dick Durbin accused President Donald Trump of relating African countries as “s***holes” throughout a meeting that they both attended.
There’s just one downside with Durbin’s claims: He includes a huge history of constructing up statements from private White House meetings.
Durbin was the only Democrat within the private meeting about the deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
Durbin was the first to speak out saying Trump used “hate-filled” and “racist” language “several times” throughout the summit.
Monday, Durbin was at the Gale Community Academy in Rogers Park for a Martin Luther King Day celebration. When asked regarding the comments he practically admitted that he used the ‘s***holes’ accusation as a leverage in the DACA negotiations.
HE CLAIMED THAT THE ONLY WAY TRUMP COULD PROVE HE’S NOT A RACIST IS IF HE APPROVES DACA:
And, he noted, “If Trump’s not a racist, Durbin said, “the president and the Republican Party have a chance to prove it” through a bipartisan compromise on immigration that helps the so-called “Dreamers” — people who were brought here illegally as children, through no fault of their own. President Obama had protected them through the DACA program, which stood for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, but Trump wants to end the program.
