Tom Cotton issued a joint statement Friday. "What the president did call out was the imbalance in our current legal immigration system that does not protect American workers and our national interest". The Post report said the president made the comments in a Thursday afternoon Oval Office meeting in which he and a group of bipartisan lawmakers met to negotiate renewal of Temporary Protection Status for Haitians, Salvadorans and other immigrants as part of a broader immigration reform package.

Two Republicans, meanwhile, said they could "not recall" the president using the language - following reports that he questioned why the USA was taking immigrants from "s--hole" countries.

"President Trump brought everyone to the table this week and listened to both sides".

President Donald Trump on Friday offered a partial denial in public but privately defended his extraordinary remarks disparaging Haitians and African countries a day earlier. Trump had asked Durbin and Sen.

The President ignored shouted questions about whether he used vulgar language during an oval office meeting about immigration. "I can not believe in this history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday".

"In the course of [Trump's] comments, he said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist", he told reporters in IL, according to USA Today. "But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith". And through Thursday night, Trump never denied making the comments, despite tweeting on several other topics. But he said in an interview Friday on POTUS SiriusXM radio that if Trump made those remarks "he owes the people of Haiti and all of mankind an apology". "Something I am most proud of is the relationships that we have built in all of Greensboro and all of the sixth district throughout this community", said Walker.

Tweeted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

But Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, whom Durbin said had voiced objection to Trump's comments during the meeting, issued a statement that did not dispute the remarks.
