"A heartbreaking moment": A senator describes Trump's full comments in "shithole" meeting

Scott told the Charleston Post and Courier that his SC colleague, Lindsey Graham, had told him that media reports of Trump making racially tinged remarks at a Thursday immigration summit were "basically accurate".

Dick Durbin were among the bipartisan group of senators at the White House with Trump.

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

Lawmakers were in the Oval Office to discuss a plan to help "Dreamers", the undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S.as children who are nicknamed after the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that protected them from deportation. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" the president tweeted.

The president, speaking at the White House before 23 members of Congress, his chief of staff John Kelly, Department of Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and advisors Stephen Miller and Marc Short, "repeatedly" called African countries "shitholes", Durbin said.

Friday's cover design for the New York Daily News includes a caricature of President Donald Trump - as a poop emoji - following his vulgar comments.

The Daily Stormer, the largest neo-Nazi website online, welcomed Trump's reported remark, saying it was evidence he was "more or less on the same page with us". But Trump's alleged comments this week could extinguish that hope. "Probably should record future meetings". The president also insisted that while he used "tough" language during the meeting, he did not make the "shithole" remark as reported.

"In the course of his comments", Durbin said, Trump "said things which were hate-filled, vile, and racist". The Congresswoman said they "worked hard, paid taxes, and rose from nothing to take care of and provide opportunities for their children".

He, however, denied, through a tweet having uttered such remarks.

"We are strongly committed in the Special Relationship between our two countries and we are confident the new Embassy will provide the necessary platform to continue our cooperation", the statement read.

The United Nations human rights office said the reported use of the expletive to describe Africa and other countries could "potentially damage and disrupt the lives of many people".

"The majority of the Africans who come here are already here on the merit-based immigration", Dau told South Sudan in Focus.
