    “I’m telling you he did not use that word, George. And I’m telling you it’s a gross misrepresentation. How many times do you want me to say that?” Sen. David Perdue told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday. “The gross misrepresentation was that language was used in there that was not used and also that the tone of that meeting was not contributory and not constructive,” he said. Perdue, a Georgia Republican, attended the meeting last Thursday with other GOP and Democratic lawmakers seeking to hammer out a deal on immigration when Trump reportedly wondered out loud why...

    Republican Rep. Mia Love deplored President Donald Trump for reportedly criticizing immigrants coming to the United States from what he called "shithole countries." "I can't defend the indefensible. You have to understand that there are countries that struggle out there. But their people, their people are good people and they're part of us. We're Americans," Love, who represents Utah and is the first Haitian-American elected to Congress, said on CNN's "State of the Union." Referring to immigrants from African countries, Trump asked lawmakers during an Oval Office meeting on immigration reform, "Why do we want all these people from 'shithole...
  • GOP Rep. Mia Love calls on Trump to apologize for 'unkind, divisive, elitist' comments

    Republican Rep. Mia Love (Utah) on Thursday called for President Trump to apologize for those he "wantonly maligned" in his reported comments about immigrants from "shithole countries." Love, who was born to Haitian parents, said the president's comments about those from Haiti and African countries were "unkind, divisive, elitist and fly in the face of our nation's values." "My parents came from one of those countries, took an oath of allegiance to it, and took on the responsibilities of everything that being a citizen comes with," she said in a statement. "The President must apologize to both the American people...

    Please join me on a whirlwind superficial but revealing tour of liberal la-la land as we peek at recent headlines. Meanwhile, liberals call conservatives wingnuts. Singer Nancy Sinatra tweeted, "The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad." One wonders whether in her rendering, "murderous" is redundant. One might also wonder whether she thinks other murderous people should be exempt from or perhaps face a less humiliating form of execution. Responding to Michelle Obama's claim that people are distrustful of politics because the GOP is "all men, all white," Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, said, "I don't know if...

    A former adviser to Donald Trump floated Utah Rep. Mia Love on Friday as a possible pick for vice president on the real-estate mogul's ticket. "If you were to name some people that nobody is talking about, to keep an eye on with the vice president [pick] … who would you say we should keep our eye on?" asked Brian Kilmeade, a Fox News Radio host. The former adviser, Michael Caputo, prefaced his answer by saying he was "never in those discussions" because they were "above my pay grade." That said, he provided a couple names. "The two people I...

    Freshman Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) is trailing Democratic candidate and attorney Doug Owens by 6 points in a rematch for her targeted House seat, a new poll finds.

    Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) endorsed Sen. Marco Rubio for president on Thursday, as the Florida lawmaker and GOP candidate continues to pick up steam in the endorsement primary. Speaking on Fox News Channel, Love said she was inspired by a recent Rubio visit to her home state and cited his strength on national defense in the wake of the terror attacks in France as a reason she will support him over others. “I saw him inspire people, but this [terror attack] just solidified things for me,” Love said. “He’s been talking about these threats from the very beginning … he’s...

"We have to do everything we can to make sure we strengthen our national defense, and do everything we can to make sure that this country and the people that are living in this country are safe, and Marco is the right person to do that," Love said in a statement. Love, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, said she realized at a roundtable discussion with Rubio when he campaigned in Utah last month that their stories are similar. "And for the...

The Salt Lake City Tribune reports the poll took place from August 7-9th and surveyed 500 adults in the state. Additionally, the survey found that most do not support using fetal “tissue” for research. The managing editor for, Bryan Schott, says the new figures show that most Utahns would agree with the governor’s decision to cut off federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

Mia Love (R-Utah) told Lou Dobbs on his Fox Business show that Planned Parenthood’s organ harvesting business is “absolutely horrific,” and the videos released by The Center for Medical Progress make her very emotional. In the six minute interview, she started crying and said, “This is not about a right or left issues; this is about right or wrong. We’ve got to do everything we can … to make sure that we don’t allow this to happen.” As LifeNews previously reported, Love is the first pro-life African American Republican female to be elected to Congress,...

    Newly minted Congresswoman Mia Love is speaking out against the White House deal with Iran, saying it's deeply concerning and inappropriate. "This is not a joke. This is not a game and it's not even partisan. This isn't even about kicking the can down the road. We're talking about kicking a bomb down the road in the next 15 years and that's incredibly concerning to me," Love said during an interview with Fox News yesterday. "We're going to lift sanctions. We have about $100 billion in escrow ready to hand over to Iran. We would all but pretty much build a...

    Washington (CNN)—The first black Republican woman elected to Congress is returning $1,000 in donations from Earl Holt, the alleged white supremacist whose writings have reportedly inspired Charleston shooter Dylann Roof. A spokesman for U.S. Rep. Mia Love said Monday that she would be returning the three donations Holt made to her campaign immediately, after being contacted by CNN. Love made history last November when Utah residents selected her as the first black Republican woman to serve in Congress. Holt, who is president Council of Conservative Citizens, donated thousands of dollars to Republican candidates Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Rick Santorum...

    Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, shocked some conservatives Tuesday when the first vote she cast as a new congresswoman was to keep Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, as House speaker. Twitter erupted, with several people claiming to be in her district saying they had lost faith in their previous hero, and that she had shown her true self. Remember, this was not a vote on legislation, it was a vote for the speaker of the House. Love, in an email to the Washington Examiner, provided some insight into why she chose to keep Boehner as GOP leader. “There were no qualified or...

    You may remember “can’t say it? don’t legislate it.” For those who need a refresher, abortion advocates made a fuss by falsely claiming that Michigan state Rep. Lisa Brown was censured simply for using the word “vagina.” In reality she was censured for violating House decorum and comparing support for pro-life legislation to rape. It is the abortion industry that is obsessed with a woman’s reproductive organs. While a baby does come out of her mother, this is not the only aspect of pregnancy, childbirth, and abortion. Another human being’s life is always at stake, and that life deserves just...
