Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, stood by his revelation that President Trump had said some immigrants who wish to come to the us were coming from "sh*thole countries".

Mr Trump was said to have uttered "shithole" during last Thursday's conversation with senators in the Oval Office, a version backed up by Democrat Dick Durbin and some Republicans.

"We got to find a way to work on this man's heart", Martin Luther King III said, referring to Trump while speaking in Washington to honor his father. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military", Trump tweeted.

Trump announced past year that he will end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, if a solution isn't found by March. According to Politico, Durbin wrote in the post, "In a "negotiation" meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told the president: 'I can not even stand to look at you'".

Perdue and Arkansas GOP Sen.

Republican Sens. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who also attended the meeting, initially said in a statement Friday that they "do not recall the president saying these comments specifically". "I haven't heard any of those six sources other than Senator Durbin talk about what was said".

"I don't know that changing the word from "hole" to "house" changes the impact".

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

Graham said that to Trump, the color of one's skin "doesn't matter, as long as you're nice to him". I know where the bandwidth exists.

The statements drew quick and widespread condemnation and resulted in Trump reversing his vow to sign whatever DACA deal lawmakers came up with.

There is no difference in the degree of racism the president's remarks hold.

In recent weeks, the Trump administration has made a series of announcements that have brought that status to an end. DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival and protects children of undocumented immigrants.

What did the president allegedly say?

And she used her breakfast TV appearance to defend her former husband after he was accused of referring to African nations as "shithole" countries. For example, in February 2017 he said at a press conference that he is the "least racist person" there is.

Mr Durbin said he told Mr Trump the word "chain migration" - used by opponents of immigration to describe people sponsoring family members to join them in the U.S. - was "painful" for many African-Americans whose ancestors had arrived in the United States as slaves.

The fallout from a contentious White House meeting on immigration last week continued Monday, as Sen.

Love said, "So that's the first thing".
