What I was not expecting was that Nielsen would raise a question about whether Norwegians are mostly white.
Others made a decision to give comparisons, pointing to the fact former president Mr Obama is listed as 6ft 1in, two inches shorter than Mr Trump - saying he appears a similar height in pictures at last year's inauguration. An aide held the poster aloft right behind Sen. The examiner then will read a list of letters and every time they say the letter A, the patient will tap once. This caused him to bring up the infamous remark Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton used while describing Trump's supporters.
Leahy moved on to Trump's wish for more Norwegian immigrants.
"I actually do not know that, sir", Nielsen replied.
Kirstjen Nielsen doesn't know Norwegians are white? "He has incredible genes, I just assume".
Jackson said Trump received a ideal score on a cognitive test created to screen for neurological impairment.
"It was clear to me what the president was saying", he added.
Jackson joked that if President Donald Trump had maintained a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he could have lived for 200 years.
Henry Bolton clings on as UKIP leader despite vote of no confidence
Bolton said a new leadership election to replace him would be "unviable" for Ukip's finances and could finish it as a party. Ukip's ruling national executive committee has unanimously backed a vote of no confidence in their leader, Henry Bolton .
Nielsen surely would have preferred to be in the fjords of Norway, or just about anywhere, to where she was Tuesday: facing questions from both Durbin and Graham, whose integrity she had challenged with her dubious account.
And on the campaign trail he promised voters: "I'm going to be working for you".
Rubio declined to comment on his Republican colleague Jeff Flake's scathing speech on the Senate floor in which he compared Trump's attacks on the media to Joseph Stalin.
According to the Wall Street Journal Online and several other USA publications, the ambassadors said Africa was a continent of great human talent and rich diversity, as well as extraordinary beauty and nearly unparalleled natural resources.
Separately, Trump launched a counterattack against Democrats, who rejected his denials about having denigrated the African nations, and grilled Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on the issue during a Congressional hearing. Jackson initially had "no intention" of including such a test in the U.S. president's first annual physical checkup since it's not part of the routine procedure. "I had absolutely no concern about his cognitive ability". "I don't want to spend the time".
Mishori disagreed with Jackson's assessment that Trump would be healthy for the rest of his term and possibly a second four-year term.
She conceded it might have been said without her hearing it and said she could not recall the president's characterization of African countries. That means he's gained three pounds over the previous year, according to his last official records.
