Trump Responses To "Sh*thole" Remarks

She said "It's incomprehensible that these words came out of the mouth of the president of the United States of America, a country that was founded on being free from discrimination and treating people fairly and having people come here, the land of the free". Senator Dick Durbin (R-IL), who was in the room, has confirmed the use of "sh*thole" and said the comments were "hate-filled, vile and racist".

In a statement on Facebook, Clinton - who worked in Haiti following the devastating 2010 natural disaster - said the Caribbean nation's struggles do "not make them the country the president described".

In a tweet on Friday, Trump denied using the word "sh*thole", but Durbin insisted that the president had indeed said it.

The comment was widely condemned as racist, although Trump later denied saying "anything derogatory" about the people of Haiti. Calls racist language heartbreaking.

On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that he used "tough" language at the meeting, but not the reported vulgarity.

"On this pale blue dot Earth that we call home, the Haitian people are our neighbors, to whom our support is both the policy of a great America as it is a sacred duty", he wrote.

The Trump administration and lawmakers on Capitol Hill are trying to thrash out an immigration strategy ahead of a budget deadline later this month.

The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used.

Undersecretary of State Steve Goldstein said as much to reporters, telling diplomats to listen first to the concerns of the host country's government before emphasizing that the U.S's commitment to the country hasn't wavered.

The National Action Network went as far to say the mayors of Charleston and North Charleston should not attend any events honoring Dr. Martin Luther King unless they denounce the president immediately. Made up by Dems. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

Senator Durbin said that after yesterday's meeting any hope for a deal "died".
Lindsey Graham, a Republican, joined other lawmakers who had been working on immigration legislation of their own at the White House Thursday.

Though the president said he has been misquoted, the damage may have already been done.

Graham was present for the meeting Thursday, and Illinois Sen.

Graham responded to Sessions, saying, "You're right".

"The solution to our current divisiveness does not live in the White House". Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, had been pushing for stronger immigration enforcement and a less generous package for the Dreamers.

Georgia Sen. David Perdue and Arkansas Sen.

Some Democrats are threatening to withhold their votes - which Republicans will need to push that legislation through Congress - unless an immigration accord is reached.
