Republicans are trying to clean up Trump’s “shithole” comments

"This is a gross misrepresentation, it's not the first time Senator Durbin has done it, and it is not productive to solving the problem that we have at hand", Purdue told ABC on Sunday. "How many times do you want me to say that?" Sen.

Georgia Sen. David Perdue called reports describing Trump as using vile language in the meeting a "gross misrepresentation" and said Democratic Sen.

Graham has not commented on the reported remark himself.

Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who was briefed by Durbin and a fellow GOP Senator who attended the meeting, confirmed that version of events to CNN. On Friday, Sen. Tom Cotton and Sen. Here's what I did hear. Durbin has said repeatedly. Sen.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) insists Trump made the remark during a Thursday meeting at the White House to discuss immigration reform.

Ben Marter, a spokesman for Durbin, shot back at Perdue's comments and said the issue comes down to credibility. "Senator Durbin has it. Senator Perdue does not".

Love agreed when asked if the President's comments were racist.

"I can't defend the indefensible. They're shithole countries. We should have more people from Norway". Rather, it's because he made those derogatory remarks about nations with populated predominantly by people of color while insisting the USA should be welcoming immigrants from Norway, which has an overwhelmingly white population.

"Today we celebrate Dr. King for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin, or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God", he said, flanked by a group of African-American supporters.

Trump's response Friday morning was particularly notable after White House spokesperson Raj Shah did not deny the "shithole" remark on Thursday evening. According to Politico, Durbin wrote in the post, "In a "negotiation" meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told the president: 'I can not even stand to look at you'".

If true, it's worrying that two USA senators have been stricken with such a devastating memory-related malady, and I hope they find the help they need.

Durbin, a key negotiator in DACA talks, recounted the meeting on MSNBC Friday, saying, "He said, 'Haitians". Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had also confirmed the "shithole" comments as "basically accurate", Perdue dismissed his colleague, saying, "You'll have to deal with him".

In the moments after he made the insulting remarks, Trump's advisers and allies looked at one another with concern, according to a White House official.
