Trump says Sen. Durbin misrepresented what the president said during DACA meeting

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sen. The president said he was misquoted, which recordings appear to corroborate.

The president is "doing great damage to our country internationally", said Hagel, a former two-term Republican senator from Nebraska.

Durbin called on Congress to deal with DACA now, instead of trying to tackle a broader immigration proposal.

The White House did not deny the language, nor did the several Republicans in the meeting.

Trump has been accused of using the word "shithole" to describe African countries during an Oval Office meeting Thursday with a bipartisan group of six senators, according to people briefed on the conversation.

Trump sparked fierce backlash this week after reports emerged that he had complained in a meeting with legislators this week on immigration about why the United States admits people from what he deems "shithole countries".

"I don't think he's a racist, I know he's a racist", Jones said. "I think that would show real leadership", she said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union".

"I don't think the president was well served by his staff. I don't dispute that the President was using tough language; others in the room were also using tough language", Nielsen said.

The White House did not deny that Mr Trump had said the slur. But other conservative Christians called the president racist and said church leaders had a moral imperative to condemn him. Durbin said he doesn't know if the White House has recordings of the meeting either. One participant at the meeting on Sunday denied that Trump used the term and another said he did not recall Trump making such comments.

President Trump had dinner with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy at Trump International in Miami, Fla., on Sun., Jan. 14, 2018.

"What I was struck with frankly, as I'm sure you were as well, was just the general profanity used in the room by nearly everyone".

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump said in a post on Twitter, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that gave legal protection to the young immigrants known as "Dreamers".

But Trump has always been accused of being racist, going back to the 1970s when he was accused of keeping blacks and Hispanics from renting apartments. "We are ready, willing and able to make a deal, but they don't want to". "Terrible. We'll stop that", Trump said during a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders summit, according to German news magazine Der Spiegel, which cited sources at the alliance's meeting.

Trump said Democrats aren't for securing the border or stopping the flow of drugs, but are for taking money away from the military.

Trump's first wife, Ivana Trump, told Good Morning Britain that the president was not racist.

Further roiling the talks are comments by Trump during an Oval Office meeting in which he questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the US, along with Africans from "shithole" countries, according to people briefed on the conversation but not authorized to describe it publicly.
