US President Donald Trump appeared to give up for dead a bipartisan deal on immigration Sunday, blaming Democrats as the aftershocks of his vulgar disparagement of African countries and Haiti rumbled Washington's political battlegrounds.Trump came back on the issue in a pair of early morning tweets three days after reportedly referring to African and Haitian immigrants as coming from "shithole countries," triggering global condemnation.A bipartisan deal to resolve the dreamers problem in return for changes demanded by Republicans in the way visas are allocated collapsed in acrimony Thursday with Trump's remarks, which were widely denounced as racist.Senator David Purdue, a Republican from Georgia, called charges that Trump is racist "ridiculous" and his reported remarks a "gross misrepresentation" of the White House meeting on immigration.Senator Jeff Flake, a Republican who has been critical of Trump, said Democrats were serious about a bipartisan deal on immigration.
