Durbin confirms Trump 's***hole' remark, says language was 'hate-filled, vile and racist'
Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" - referring to his remarks.
And despite the president's opposition, Durbin said lawmakers still plan to vote on a plan reforming DACA next week.
The global community condemned the comments, which were corroborated by congressmen who had been in the room when Trump made the controversial remarks. "I use those words advisedly". They don't blink. They stand tall and they have dignity.
Trump asked at a meeting with congress members at the White House, reports said on Thursday, citing people with knowledge on the conversation. "You have seen the comments in the press". 'I have not read one of them that's inaccurate.
On Friday, AU chief Moussa Faki's spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo had also said Trump's comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice". It is not true. Her parents immigrated to the States when they were only children. The largest group, he toldthe president, is from El Salvador, the second largest is Honduran, and the third is Haitian.
"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", Trump said.
Ghanaians, like many Africans across the globe, have expressed their disgust for the unpleasant remarks passed by the controversial US President.
Friday, he denied that he used the term to describe some migrants' countries - including Haiti and El Salvador.
The president added that he wanted "a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level" and "safety and security" for Americans. "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems".
Durbin said, "We have seven days and the clock is ticking".
The White House did not deny his remark but issued a statement saying Mr Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".
The remarks were allegedly made when lawmakers visited him on Thursday to discuss a bipartisan proposal that would impose new restrictions on immigration but protect the so-called "Dreamers" - hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children - from deportation. Republican US Senator Tim Scott is also on record confirming the substance of Graham's admission of fact.
"Has America become a better country as a result?"
Anthony Scaramucci, whose brief tenure as White House communications director ended shortly after his expletive-filled comments about his administration colleagues appeared in The New Yorker, said Trump "is not a racist".
