During a meeting in the Oval Office on Thursday January 11, 2017 about protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, President Trump stated “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” He then suggested "the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday" and "from Asian countries because he felt that they help the United States economically."

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), who was present at the meeting, confirmed the statements made by the President. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who was also present in the meeting, stated "Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday." Several African countries condemned President Trump's statements, as did several other African ambassadors to the United Nations, with many calling for retractions and an apology.

Judge Bolton ruled that "Arpaio knowingly violated a federal judge's order in 2011. At that time, Arpaio was told he could not detain immigrants [often through traffic stops] simply because they lacked legal status — but for 18 months, his deputies carried on with the practice."

"White nationalists had long planned a demonstration over the city's decision to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee. But the rally quickly exploded into racial taunting, shoving and outright brawling, prompting the governor to declare a state of emergency and the National Guard to join the police in clearing the area." The rally attracted a variety of white nationalist groups, including the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis. "Many of these groups have felt emboldened since the election of Donald J. Trump as president.  Mr. Duke, a former imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, told reporters on Saturday that the protesters were 'going to fulfil the promises of Donald Trump' to 'take our country back.'" Those participating in the rally chanted white nationalist slogans  such as "blood and soil,” “white lives matter” and “you will not replace us.” The rally eventually ended after a man aligned with the Unite the Right rally drove into a crowd of rally protesters, injuring 19 people and killing one woman. Two days later during a televised statement, Trump discussed the economy and several other issues before shifting towards criticism of the rally, saying "we condemn in the strongest possible terms, this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence [in Charlottesville]; it has no place in America."  Trump also called the hate groups participating in the rally "repugnant to everything we hold dear in America." At a press conference related to the streamlining of the approval process for infrastructure projects, President Trump took questions from the media which quickly focused on the Unite the Right Rally.  While answering questions, Trump changed his stance and said that there is another group partially to blame for the violence and that it wasn't just the fault of the neo-Nazis: the "alt-left", is also responsible for "swinging clubs".  He also noted that there was "blame on both sides", and "you had some very bad people in that group [neo-Nazis], but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides."

The New York Times report insinuated this was in an effort to target affirmative action policies in general, particularly those "deemed to discriminate against white applicants." The Department of Justice spokesperson, Sarah Flores, noted this is for a lawsuit initiated in 2015 involving a coalition of Asian American associations:

The posting sought volunteers to investigate one administrative complaint filed by a coalition of 64 Asian-American associations in May 2015 that the prior administration left unresolved," Flores said in a statement. "The complaint alleges racial discrimination against Asian Americans in a university's admissions policy and practices. This Department of Justice has not received or issued any directive, memorandum, initiative, or policy related to university admissions in general. The Department of Justice is committed to protecting all Americans from all forms of illegal race-based discrimination."

The lawsuit alleges "Harvard discriminated against Asian-American applicants based on their race."
