Durbin on Trump: 'He said those hateful things, and he said them repeatedly'

Maryland lawmakers, Mayor Pugh condemn Trump's comments on immigrants

Durbin said in a statement today that "in the course of his comments, President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile, and racist". Why do we need more Haitians?

The group of over 50 nations in a statement said: "the AU expressed its disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Donald Trump, President of the United States of America". He said Trump used "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries "not just once, but repeatedly".

Ben Cardin said the president's "comments don't represent America's values".

Trump on Friday denied describing certain nations as "shithole countries" after triggering worldwide outrage.

Although Trump is known for making controversial statements and using vulgar language, his latest remarks sparked furious backlash, both within the U.S. and internationally, including from the countries named.

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

"I have heard several different variations of what exactly was said".

He added: "When the question was asked about Haitians... he said 'Haitians?" But people in the Nordic nation - past year named the happiest place on earth - have no desire to move to the United States, according to a report on Norwegian national TV.

But Mr Trump has denied using the language reported.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, who was present during the Thursday meeting, refuted Trump's denial. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". President, are you a racist?' asked American Urban Radio Networks White House Correspondent April Ryan on Friday.

The two men said they "do not recall the President saying those comments specifically" but also didn't deny he said them.

Sen. Durbin on Trump comments. He hopes that people will continue supporting the country and its people.

Senegal's foreign ministry also called in the US ambassador in Dakar to demonstrate its displeasure, a US State Department official said. Never said "take them out". "I see this as a thing to celebrate, and I think it's a big part of our strength".

No matter how much some conservative supporters of Trump believe the United States should adopt an isolationist stance, walling off borders and refusing to deal with the rest of the world, it's not possible.

Interestingly, this comes after he reportedly referred to the immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as "s--holes", in an immigration meeting at the White House earlier. But the suggestion Trump directed his wrath at these nations or their governments rather than their residents who are desperate to escape to a better life here is at odds with his record and with the message received by those in the room.
