New Mexico politicians react to Trump's vulgar remarks

U.S. President Donald Trump listens during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration policy in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington on Tuesday

Trump allegedly grew angry with lawmakers at a meeting when discussing protecting immigrants from Haiti and African nations as part of a program to protect "dreamers" from deportation.

Mr Trump appeared to deny that he used vulgar language to describe immigrants from Africa and other regions on Friday, saying in a tweet: "the language used by me... was tough, but this was not the language used".

All African countries at the United Nations unanimously demanded on Friday (Jan 12) that US President Donald Trump retract and apologise for his reported denunciation of immigration from "s***hole" nations.

Trump has denied using the word "shithole", but did say he used "tough" language in the discussion about the large numbers of foreign nationals who arrive in the USA from under-developed regions of the world. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made".

"You've seen the comments in the press", Durbin said at an event in Chicago, according to CNN.

The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the president's tweet.

"There were two of us against 10 people in the room", Durbin said of him and Graham.

Undersecretary of State Steve Goldstein said as much to reporters, telling diplomats to listen first to the concerns of the host country's government before emphasizing that the U.S's commitment to the country hasn't wavered.

"The President's ongoing war against immigrants appears to be exclusively directed toward those immigrants of color", said Haitian-American state Sen.

The Senate minority whip also told MSNBC today that Graham "spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

Trump on Thursday reportedly questioned why the United States would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa. "My hope would be that they're actually upfront and open about what they're doing", Seaman says. "I have not read one of them that is inaccurate", Durbin said during a Friday news conference.

But the 54 countries also thanked those Americans "from all walks of life who have condemned the remarks".

The Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro said the problem with Trump's remarks was that he used a curse word and that "he said it behind closed doors unlike Joe Biden, while Conservative pundit Ann Coulter said that "s***hole countries" should be given respect by being called "s***hole nations". It took courage for what he did, and, I made my own comments in response to it. "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards", he said. "He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Mr Durbin said.

"Why are we having all these people from sh-hole countries come here?"
