Sen. Richard J. Durbin of IL told reporters that Trump "said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist" at a meeting at the White House on Thursday.

Trump's alleged comments were met with condemnation from the United Nations.

Conservative reporter Erick Erickson said Sunday that President Donald Trump called friends to brag about his reported remarks describing Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "s**thole countries".

The White House has not denied that Trump said "shithole" though Trump previously has pushed back on some depictions of the meeting.

"I don't know if there will be a shutdown, there shouldn't be", he said.

Asked what he thinks about people who think he is racist, Trump said, "No, No". Jeff Flake, who said that Trump's words had been related to him after the meeting by those in attendance.

On Friday, Mr Trump tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been "tough".

What this big game of telephone misses is that it doesn't really matter whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse" or "craphole" or any of the various other derogatory names in that vein.

Altidor extended an invitation to the President to visit his country, but added that it "doesn't excuse an apology for what was said" and that "such words shouldn't be coming out of anybody's mouth, let alone the President of the United States".

The Illinois Democrat says he and a handful of other senators who crafted a bipartisan immigration deal are working to win over additional supporters.

One of Trump's top advisers, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, said on "Fox News Sunday" she did not recall if Trump used "that specific phrase".

Mr. Trump was said to have told them that instead of granting temporary residency to citizens of countries hit by natural disasters, war or epidemics, the U.S should be taking in migrants from countries like Norway.

"For once, we are all on the same page", an ambassador told AFP.

"Where people are disrespected and their freedoms denied, we always find incidents of harassment", Tillerson said in the speech at the State Department's Dean Acheson Auditorium.

However, one of the Republican Senators who attended the meeting today claimed that Trump never used that word.

As a result, the Mission said, "there is a serious need for dialogue" between the Trump administration and African countries.

Haiti's ambassador in Washington has also asked for an apology, as Trump reportedly specifically questioned the protections granted to Haitian immigrants after the natural disaster.
