White House says Trump won't apologize

Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted President Donald Trump's White House as

Trump admitted that he used "tough" words during the meeting, but disputed the language used in the reports.

When Graham and other congressional leaders met with Trump again to offer a possible compromise deal last Thursday, Trump was upset about protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and Africa, which he reportedly called "shithole countries". Some say Trump did not use the word.

In an interview with George Stephanopolous on ABC's "This Week", Perdue was asked if he was denying Trump said the words. Like so many of Trump's close confidantes before him, Graham was stabbed in the back by the man he thought he was guiding.

"I am not a racist".

"When you make a statement like you made yesterday, the question is: 'Do you even understand why we have a Martin Luther King holiday?'" King told the publication Friday.

"So Tuesday, we had a president that I was proud to golf with, call my friend, who understood immigration had to be bipartisan, you had to have border security as essential, you have border security with a wall, but he also understood the idea that we had to do it with compassion", Graham said.

In addition, Sen. Tim Scott said fellow South Carolina Republican Sen.

The President's comments come after he held on-camera bipartisan talks at the White House last week in which he appeared open to making a deal with both Republicans and Democrats.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) also said Sunday lawmakers who were in the room told him about the slur before it was reported publicly.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting".

Another Republican senator who was in the Oval Office meeting, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, said Sunday he "didn't hear" Trump use the term. He then insisted he'd said "nothing derogatory" about Haitians, though he made no attempt to clarify if was guilty of doing so regarding Africa.

"I didn't hear it, and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was". Never said "take them out".

Though she admitted: "If it were me in Melania's place I would not really like if the ex-wife is calling my husband". Look on the bright side: It's an excuse for CNN to say "sh*thole" on the air 195 more times. Let's break down Republicans' varying responses to Trump's "shithole countries" remark with what they're getting out of it. They know better. If they are trying to rescue the White House by this distinction between '-hole' and '-house, ' that is a thin reed to try and create a rescue operation. He also denied he was a racist. It was the media and other Democrats who brought up race.

Trump was "not well served by his staff", Graham told reporters.

However, Trump had, while signing the proclamation for King's Day on Wednesday, said the late civil rights leader "dedicated his life to a vision: that all Americans would live free from injustice and enjoy equal opportunity as children of God".
