Expected to attend: senior White House officials, such as Ivanka Trump, the President's daughter and senior adviser, communications director Hope Hicks, press secretary Sarah Sanders and counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway as well as Cabinet members Secretary of Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.

In a hearing Tuesday, Graham said Trump expressed openness to an immigration deal, only to reject it hours later.

He added, "We got to find a way to work on this man's heart".

Jackson's stellar review of President Trump is likely to take his critics - who have been claiming he is mentally unfit for office - by surprise, particularly as they have pointed to signs of dementia, Alzheimers and other cognitive deterioration.

He denied making the offensive remarks, despite two senators who attended the meeting confirming the accuracy of the news reports about the words Trump used.

Which is why the president's tweeting is "not a bad idea", she continued. It is not true. Durbin said the remarks were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content". "I'm telling my friends on the other side, DACA and nothing else is not going to happen".

"And then he went on to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure".

Left to its own devices, the State Department came up with its own talking points to be used by US missions in Africa working to stem the damage, said a USA official, who wasn't authorized to disclose internal deliberations and demanded anonymity.

Pressed whether he believes Trump is racist, Hoyer wouldn't initially answer directly, saying, "If you use racist rhetoric, if you pursue policies based upon a racial premise, I consider that to be the definition of a racist".

According to the senator, the president's response was simply to respond: "That's a good line".

DURBIN: I'm not going task you to say those words. Trump said, according to people briefed on the meeting who spoke with The Washington Post.

As he addressed reporters outside of a Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing, Graham said that President Trump is not being served well by his staff. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"
