Republicans are trying to clean up Trump's "shithole" comments

Bennie Garza | 13 January, 2018, 04:57

Trump said he was only expressing what many people think but won't say about immigrants from economically depressed countries, according to a person who spoke to the president as criticism of his comments ricocheted around the globe.

The comments have caused an worldwide firestorm and temporarily stalled hopes of a bipartisan immigration deal.

This morning, President Trump said he did use profanity, but the specific phrased he's accused of saying - really was NOT said. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 GOP senator, and other Republicans have derided the group of six senators as having little clout.

The President ignored shouted questions about whether he used vulgar language during an oval office meeting about immigration.

Trump's "shithole" remark was first reported by the Washington Post's Josh Dawsey on Thursday afternoon.

Perdue said through a spokeswoman that Trump convened the meeting to bring "everyone to the table this week and listen to both sides".

Senator Dick Durbin was the only democrat in the room. "President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist".

Perdue was among several senators in the meeting at the White House on negotiations to fix the legal immigration system. "But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith". Despite Trump's denial, multiple sources have confirmed what was said, and the White House did not deny it overnight.

Trump insisted Friday that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Lindsey GrahamLindsey Olin GrahamGOP and Dems bitterly divided by immigration We are running out of time to protect Dreamers US trade deficit rises on record imports from China MORE (R-S.C.) - whom Sen. "Something I am most proud of is the relationships that we have built in all of Greensboro and all of the sixth district throughout this community", said Walker.

"If that comment is accurate, the comment is incredibly disappointing", Scott said.

"We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification, and the Dream Act -the areas outlined by the president", the senators wrote in a joint statement.

Trump has said he will only agree to a deal with Congress on immigration if it includes funding for his wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.
