MLK Day 2018: Is the bank open? Is the liquor store open?

Besides Ferris, the president was flanked by Vice President Mike Pence, Health and Human Services Secretary Ben Carson and other King family members.

The comments stood in jarring contrast to the president's previous remarks made to members of Congress during an immigration meeting Thursday, when he asked why the USA accepts people from "sh*thole countries".

Trump, according to Farris Jr., addressed the controversy during their brief meeting in the Oval Office.

Nonetheless, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who was at the Thursday meeting on immigration in the White House, said on Friday that Trump "certainly did use that offensive term".

"I went to ROTC on scholarship, but my mother got sick and I had to quit school so they let me out of my scholarship, but I still wanted to be an officer", Hale explained.

President Donald Trump delivered a speech honoring Martin Luther King Jr., as the nation continued to reel from reports that he had used vulgar and racist expletives when describing Haiti, El Salvador and the nations of Africa. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., supported the gist of the Post's story. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that "the president's expressed desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway must be called out for what it is: an effort to set this country back generations by promoting a homogeneous, white society". Trump was asked by April Ryan, Washington bureau chief for American Urban Radio, as he turned to leave the ceremony honoring the civil rights leader.

He later added, "I thought he misspoke, and, as I said, I think President Trump is not a racist, but I do think he is racially uninformed".
