Take the cognitive test that President Trump passed during his physical

President Donald Trump on Wednesday aligned himself solidly with conservative Republicans on immigration, criticizing a proposed bipartisan deal as "horrible" on US border security and "very, very weak" on reforms for the legal immigration system. Graham himself would say only that "I said my piece directly" to the president and that "I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals". "They need to come to the table with a real deal based on the parameters that were discussed in the meeting that most of you saw, and let's try to get something done for the American people", Sanders said.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Sen.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) refused to comment during a Thursday morning interview with CNN on whether or not President Donald Trump described countries like Haiti, El Salvador and several African nations as "shithole countries" during a meeting last week, saying he wants to ensure he can keep the lines of communication with Trump open.

Trump has denied using that word.

Asked how Trump managed to be in such good health with that lifestyle, Jackson said, "He has incredibly good genes".

The truth of Trump's view on exercise is more complicated than just his pretending that he "get [s] more exercise than people think".

But on the positive side, Jackson also said Trump had no history of smoking or drinking and did not have diabetes. "Time is running out", he said.

Other than an appendectomy when he was 11, Trump has had no major surgery. "He is fit for duty", Jackson said.

Trump said a federal government shutdown "could happen" at the end of the week, insisting Democrats would be blamed if that occurs even though Republicans control both chambers of Congress and the White House. Trump announced a year ago that he will end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, unless lawmakers come up with a solution by March. The program now protects roughly 700,000 people, mostly Hispanic young adults, from deportation and provides them work permits.

What the survey did not address was how Trump's freewheeling conversation style affects the respondents' perception of him and his administration, though results do provide some indication.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted Monday, using a nickname to needle the IL senator.

Asked at the White House Tuesday about whether he only wanted immigrants from Norway, Trump said: "I want them to come in from everywhere, everywhere".

As Graham and Durbin began describing the deal, Trump said, it was immediately clear it would be unacceptable to most Republicans.

In a briefing for journalists, a senior administration official said Tuesday that they want an immigration system that brings to the country people who will contribute knowledge and skills and better "assimilate" into U.S. society. Democrats have remained opposed to Trump's wall. "And I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Perdue said on ABC's "This Week".

As backlash over the alleged comments mounted, Trump denied using such a phrase, admitting only that he used "tough language". He said Durbin and Republican Sen. They have the leverage to do so because Senate Republicans would need at least nine Democratic votes to support any funding measure.
