Wasn't me: Trump pushes racist comments to the Democrats

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of IL was in the meeting with Trump and told reporters in Chicago that Trump "said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly".

"I can not believe that in the history of the Oval Office any president has spoken the words that I have personally heard the President speak yesterday", said Durbin, clearly appalled.

Trump was quoted in the Washington Post as having said: 'Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?' during a discussion regarding plans to overhaul the immigration system in which he is said to have specifically made derogatory remarks in reference to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

The African Union said Friday that President Donald Trump's reported description of African nations as "sh*hole countries" broke with "accepted behaviour" and was "extremely upsetting".

Durbin said the president "said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly".

'My colleague, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said.

Trump is being quoted as saying, "Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" then suggesting the USA should take in more people from countries like Norway.

Durbin said that when the question was asked about Haitians at the meeting, the president said, "Hatians? We are a nation of immigrants and I am so proud of that".

"Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?" The Washington Post first reported on Trump's comments. "Take them out", meaning take them out of the deal. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

The White House has not disputed the report.

Republican U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin said in a brief written statement to the media Thursday that the comments, as reported, were "not helpful" to the goal of immigration reform and securing U.S. borders. Taking to his Twitter handle, John Dramani Mahama described the word by Trump as an "insult" indicative of the belief that the "racist" president is running a policy of "Make America White Again". "Probably", the president concluded this morning, citing to a lack of trust on all sides, we "should record future meetings" of this type.

Struck by a 7.0 magnitude natural disaster on January 12, 2010, an estimated three million people were affected by the quake in Haiti, with death toll estimates ranging from 100,000 to 160,000. The Dems will threaten 'shutdown, ' but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most.

The group of senators had come to the White House to discuss a potential compromise on immigration. Ted Cruz, said on Twitter that "Haitians, El Salvadorans join distinguished list of people who've made our country better after making tough decision to leave theirs".
