Senator Cotton Doesn't Recall Trump Making Vulgar Comment at Meeting

Senator Cotton Doesn't Recall Trump Making Vulgar Comment at Meeting

The president insisted on Twitter Friday that he didn't use that language.

The White House did not deny Thursday that the president used the phrase, and the comments drew sharp criticism from US politicians, including Miami Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who called the remarks racist, among other things.

His comments which also suggested the U.S. should instead focus its immigrant entry policy on countries such as Norway has been criticised by global organisations including the United Nations and African Union, politicians and other Africans and Caribbeans.

On Thursday, Trump was in a private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration when those who attended said he questioned why the US would accept more people from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway.

The President has since denied the comments; however, following Trump's denial, Sen.

But Sen. Dick Durbin, the only Democrat in the room, disputed the president's account.

"Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?" Robert Chiponda, a communications consultant in Lusaka, said he never took Trump seriously.

One of the nation's largest political parties, the Frente Farabundo Marti para la Liberacion Nacional (FMLN), also released a statement saying they were offended and aggravated by Trump's "racist, anti-immigrant, anti-Salvadoran and anti-American" language.

"Republicans and Democrats in Congress and the White House have made significant progress in the last few weeks to get a legislative agreement on border security, fixing DACA and other related issues", he said. "Made up by Dems", Trump tweeted. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

In the USA, both Republican and Democratic politicians have condemned Trump's remarks, while the United Nations has called Trump's words "racist".

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts millions of USA citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.
