Republican senators claim to have not heard Trump's 'shithole' countries remark

Working with countries like India is a good thing says President Trump

"Dr. King's faith and his love for humanity led him and so many other heroes to courageously stand up for civil rights of African-Americans", said Trump. "We will probably hear more from him".

The latest immigration discussions were sparked when Trump rescinding the popular Obama-era DACA program, which protects 800,000 young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children from deportation, in September.

It gave the approximately 59,000 Haitian immigrants who had been granted the status until July 2019 to return home or legalise their presence in the US. "To me, that's like saying, we don't want y'all brown people because you're not doing anything", she said, "We want people from Norway". In a separate part of the conversation about the diversity visa lottery, the source said, Trump referred to people coming from Africa as coming from "shithole countries".

"In relation to the deplorable expressions attributed to President Donald Trump" El Salvador's government called for "an official declaration from the United States government to clarify them or deny them", the Central American nation's foreign ministry said in a statement.

During a segment on Cooper's show, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta said that "this president, deep down, may just be a racist".

Trump seems to be defending himself against the furor over his vulgar words to describe African countries. Sadly we have #shithole leaders like Trump shitting on us everyday. And for all of you who over the last few years who have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated, ignorant, response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racist"? Those people largely built this country, in fact.

Roughly 15 hours since the comments were first reported, White House aides appeared unperturbed by the controversial remarks, arguing they could help the president despite the backlash across both sides of the aisle.

"We have despots running these countries".

"I don't think anyone is anxious about it", the official said. He added: "He's addressing the reality of the despots who run these countries. I've not read one of them that was inaccurate".

Precisely. That is a reason to consider their plight, not put a blanket ban on them.

President Salvador Sanchez Ceren said that the reported comments "assault the dignity of our people". Only people who were there know for sure.

But on Friday morning, Trump was issuing a denial that he used the word "s**thole" - though not anything else he reportedly said during the meeting.

In a series of tweets on Friday, Trump also suggested that momentum toward a deal on maintaining such protection had stalled.

Durbin and Graham were told Thursday that Trump would not agree to the deal.

Sen. Tim Scott, a Republican from SC, told the Post and Courier that Sen.

Given Trump's record with the truth, we find Durbin more believable in this case.

After the president spoke, Carson and Farris took turns at the podium and Trump signed the proclamation. He added Trump's mouth was "the foulest shithole in the world".
