Trump's Vulgar Remarks on Immigration Confirmed by Senator

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley had asked nations not to vote against the United States and said she would keep track of those who did.

"We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle" that addresses the main policies Trump sought, they said.

He noted that neither the White House nor the State Department had formally contacted him to clarify whether Trump had indeed made the comments at an Oval Office meeting Thursday.

At the time of publication, Graham had not publicly commented on the president's remarks.

President Trump on Thursday baulked at an immigration deal that would include protections for people from Haiti and some nations in Africa, demanding to know at a White House meeting why he should accept immigrants from "shithole countries" rather than from places like Norway, according to people with direct knowledge of the conversation.

However, in a tweet today, Trump said he used tough language at immigration meeting with lawmakers, "but this was not the language used".

In a follow-up bipartisan meeting held on January 11, Trump questioned why the United States would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as "shithole countries".

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said. Furthermore, the IL lawmaker labeled the president's words "hate-filled" and "racist".

"The positive comment on Norway makes the underlying sentiment very clear", Colville said, warning that Trump's comments should not merely be brushed aside as "vulgar language".

Speaking in London, Ont., Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he would not "opine on what the president may or may not have said" but called Canada a country of openness and respect.

Durbin is part of a bipartisan group of six senators who announced Thursday the framework of a compromise on immigration.

It's unclear now how a deal might emerge, and failure could lead to a government shutdown. The park's boundaries include the Prince Hall Masonic Temple, a site that King used as the headquarters for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, according to a White House spokesman.

There were also questions about which lawmakers were in position to conduct meaningful talks.

The first wave of sharp criticism came from both Republican and Democrat lawmakers.

This afternoon, we got two very different accounts from GOP sources.

Trump on Friday panned the "so-called bipartisan DACA deal" as "a big step backwards". He said he wants to call the bill to the floor of the Senate early next week.

Lawmakers have until January 19 to approve a government-wide stopgap spending bill, and Republicans will need Democratic votes to push the measure through. He complained that the United States, instead, should accept people from places such as Norway. "How do I explain to children the words that I'm telling them should never cross their mind are coming from [the president]?"

"Why do we need more Haitians?" Durbin told reporters in Chicago.

The administration announced a year ago that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 Haitians to live and work in the U.S.in the wake of a devastating 2010 quake.

"Like all countries, Haiti is a collection of people: it's rich and poor, well-educated and not, good and bad", he said. Referring to a report in the Washington Post, that he said "take them out" in reference to Haitians, Trump said that never happened.

In a press release the ministry of worldwide affairs questioned why Mr Trump would use such a derogatory word when talking about countries which "the U.S. has had cordial and mutually beneficial bilateral relations for so many years". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

President Donald Trump signed a proclamation Friday declaring Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is Monday.

In its statement, El Salvador's government expressed its "rejection" of the comments attributed to Trump. Durbin recounted that Trump went on to discuss similarly protected immigration from Africa, "calling the nations they come from s-holes".

The Republican president's comments were decried as racist by African and Haitian politicians, by the United Nations human rights office and by USA lawmakers from both major parties.

"Mr Trump spits on the assassination of this black American icon, as well as on a whole generation of young people, black and white, who gave their lives in the civil rights movement", he said. His response to Mr. Trump's reported comment, "it didn't surprise me, because he started his campaign in a way that he was saying some hard things about other people".
