GOP lawmakers 'do not recall' Trump's 'shithole' slur

GOP lawmakers 'do not recall' Trump's 'shithole' slur

Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) commented Friday on their immigration meeting with President Trump, responding to reports that he referred to countries like Haiti as "sh**hole countries". What Trump did do, they said, was "call out the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest".

Two Republican senators who attended yesterday's meeting in which President Trump reportedly disparaged immigrants from "shithole countries" seem to have come down with a case of amnesia. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 GOP senator, and other Republicans have derided the group of six senators as having little clout.

"The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", Flake tweeted. "I can not believe that in the history of the White House and that Oval Office any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday". Known as a lawmaker willing to work across the aisle, we'll ask Sen.

Already displeased that a bipartisan working group including Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., had accepted Trump's parameters, even referencing "chain migration", they were incensed after the "s--hole" remark was reported.

Perdue said through a spokeswoman that Trump convened the meeting to bring "everyone to the table this week and listen to both sides". "President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist". Despite Trump's denial, multiple sources have confirmed what was said, and the White House did not deny it overnight. But he said in an interview Friday on POTUS SiriusXM radio that if Trump made those remarks "he owes the people of Haiti and all of mankind an apology".

But Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, whom Durbin said had voiced objection to Trump's comments during the meeting, issued a statement that did not dispute the remarks.

"The man who touts himself as an "outsider" was actually inside the room when these remarks are made, and has no excuse to dodge the public and press on where he stands", Porter said.

"If that comment is accurate, the comment is incredibly disappointing", Scott said. It would protect so-called Dreamers from deportation and beef up border security and make other changes to family and diversity visas.

Durbin said another Republican at the meeting, U.S. Sen.
