GOP senator denies Trump made 'shithole' comment

A Republican senator who attended a Thursday immigration meeting at the White House forcefully denied Sunday that President Donald Trump had used the phrase "s-thole countries" in describing Haiti and African nations, saying a Democratic senator's account of the session was "a gross misrepresentation".

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Delaware) said it's not his place to diagnose the president. In a statement, the White House did not dispute the remarks, merely saying Trump "will always fight for the American people".

President Donald Trump says a program to protect immigrants brought into the US illegally as children is "probably dead".

U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger, a Republican from Charlotte, went on WBT Friday morning to defend Trump's remarks and did so with incredibly twisted logic. They say they "do not recall" Trump saying those comments. "Durbin or Sen. Graham is going to make something up that the president of the United States has said, and thinking that they would do that in order to gin up people on one way or another, that's wrong", Manchin said Sunday. Instead, just as Attorney General Jeff Sessions had before the Senate intelligence committee in June, they simply said they could not recall what had happened.

Ben Marter tweeted Sunday, shortly after Republican Georgia Sen. "We, along with the President, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades".

In a separate part of the conversation about the diversity visa lottery, the source said, Trump referred to people coming from Africa as coming from "shithole countries". "Sen. Durbin and Sen".

Separately, Durbin told reporters he had not seen a single news report about the President's words that was false.

The comments have caused an worldwide firestorm and temporarily stalled hopes of a bipartisan immigration deal. Tim Scott, also a South Carolina Republican, that the reports were 'basically accurate'. "Why do we need more Haitians?" I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level.
