Members of Congress who were in the meeting when President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries" have different memories of what happened.

Now, Lemon's controversial declaration did not come unwarranted; it came after the Washington Post reported Donald Trump called several countries, including Haiti and Nigeria, "sh****le" countries.

Durbin, speaking to reporters on Friday, contradicted Trump's claim. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". "Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but "racist", Rupert Colville, spokesman for the United Nations human rights office, told reporters in Geneva. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust". Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was in the meeting, said the reports were correct.

"He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said, calling the words "vile and racist". This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.

The White House did not initially deny the remarks but Trump later denied using the controversial words in a tweet.

"America's greatness is self-evident, we do not need to tear down other nations", they added.
