Trump Declines to Deny That He's Racist When Asked at MLK Event

U.S. Congressman Al Green (D-Texas 9th District) promised again Friday that he'll try to get President Donald Trump impeached.

Trump's reported remarks came as both Republican and Democratic lawmakers visited him on Thursday to propose a deal on immigration. Trump also questioned why the USA lets Haitians into the country, and mocked Durbin's assertion that African-Americans might be offended by the term "chain migration", the senator said.

Trump invited several Senators to the Oval Office on Thursday to discuss the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

U.S. President Donald Trump seemingly denied Friday he referred to African nations as "shitholes", the morning after his reported comments sent American media into a frenzy. Made up by Dems.

"You've seen the comments in the press - I have not read one of them that's inaccurate", Durbin said Friday. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he added.

Although Trump denied using the expletive, senior Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who attended the Thursday meeting at the White House asserted that the president did resort to the crude slur that liberal United States media outlets went to town with at once.

However, Democratic Whip and IL senator, Dick Durbin, was in the room during the meeting and confirmed the report.

In its statement, El Salvador's government expressed its "rejection" of the comments attributed to Trump.

"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", he tweeted.

A Democrat present at the meeting said that "shithole" was the "exact word used by the President, not just once but repeatedly". It is not true. "Take them out", Trump also reportedly said.

Assistant Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Steve Goldstein noted that Trump denies that he uses such language, but said the envoys had been briefed on how to respond to complaints. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

Republican U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin said he's focused on policy, and that the reported remarks "are not helpful".

In November, Trump that had been granted to Haitian immigrants living in the US following the quake.

The President has since denied the comments; however, following Trump's denial, Sen. "[The border wall] was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

Trump suggested the United States should instead welcome immigrants from places like Norway, whose prime minister met with Trump on Wednesday. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs".

Durbin said Trump and his supporters in the room also "scoffed" when he said that ending chain migration would break up families.
