Durbin, the one Democrat at a White House meeting last Thursday about immigration, stated Trump asked why the United States continues to just accept immigrants from "s-thole countries" referring to Africa, Haiti and El Salvador.
Durbin has claimed Trump used an expletive when talking about African countries at a meeting last week. David Perdue went on ABC's "This Week" to call reports that Trump used vile language in the meeting a "gross misrepresentation".
"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Mr Trump said in a post on Twitter, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that gave legal protection to young immigrants known as "Dreamers". He said, "Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation". "We are producing some pretty good policy, but those of us in my business need to up their game", the senator said. "I stand by every word that I said", Durbin said.
"Whether you want to say s-hole or s-house, [Trump] was bragging while Tom Cotton, the DHS Secretary and David Perdue were getting ready to lie".More news: Saints' Payton on using 'Skol' clap: 'Good playoff fun'
Earlier, Trump acknowledged using "tough" language in the meeting, but denied uttering the vulgar term. "Durbin has said repeatedly", Sen. Perdue accused Durbin of spreading false information about the meeting.
Maurice Watson, pastor of Metropolitan Baptist Church in Largo, called the reported remark "dehumanizing" and "ugly" and said "whoever made such a statement.is wrong and they ought to be held accountable".
Durbin, who attended the meeting with the Republicans, has publicly confirmed the statements. "Let's take the whole scenario and put different words in there", Paul, reasoned, absurdly, trying to reframe Trump's comments as a perfectly reasonable demand for higher-skilled immigrants.More news: Bitcoin plunges to about $12200 ... for now
"What I've tried to say today is that America is not the world's policeman, but our values and our country is what holds the world together", Graham said.
"Never said anything derogatory about Haiti", he later tweeted. Ask anyone whos dealt with both.
