Durbin: Trump said 'shithole' repeatedly, comments were 'vile, racist'

A fellow senator says South Carolina Sen.

House Judiciary Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy have so far not commented on the remarks. Meanwhile, Graham himself has now issued a statement on the meeting.

President Donald Trump's alleged use of a vulgarity to describe immigrants from Haiti and African nations as coming to the USA from "s--hole countries" has brought condemnation from around the world.

Cuba's Foreign Ministry "strongly" condemned Friday night the "racist, denigrating and gross" statements by U.S. President Donald Trump on Haiti, El Salvador and African states.

But Mr Trump has denied using the language reported.

'I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday.

Other California Democrats expressed outrage over Trump's comments as well. I reject them and condemn them vigorously. Trump tweeted Friday that reports about what he said were inaccurate but did not specify how. It is not true. The exact word used by the present.


The reports prompted outrage and accusations of racism from people in the usa and the rest of the world. African Americans believe that they migrated to America in chains, and when you speak about chain migration, it hurts them personally. "We should be talking about how we bring people together", Pugh said. "It was a heartbreaking moment", Durbin said.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said. Trump asked senators. "Why do we need more Haitians?"

Trump appeared to deny he made the comments in a tweet on Friday, but the AP reported that privately he has defended the remark as a "straightforward" assessment of conditions in the countries under discussion. There is no other word for it but racist.

Lemon said Trump supporters should undergo some "self-examination" and questioned "what it says about you that you continue to make excuses for this man, no matter what". I was very proud of him, it took courage for what he did.

I am shocked by the words of President Trump on Haiti and Africa.

The UN diplomats met for an emergency session before issuing a joint statement to demand a "retraction and an apology" from the USA president.

"I have heard several different variations of what exactly was said. And that's not the first time he's said stuff like that", Jacques said. "The president will always reject temporary, weak and risky stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway". "Can we take him off the screen?"
