Trump said on Twitter on Friday he merely used "tough" language when discussing a new immigration bill with a group of US senators.

Trump blasted the proposal as "a big step backwards" and said it didn't provide enough funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, a key campaign promise Trump made in 2016.

Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, on Friday told reporters that Trump questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and that he referenced "shithole countries" in Africa.

"They never took a thing from our federal government. I'll take a downtrodden Haitian, Salvadoran or African who hungers for and will defend freedom and opportunity in America over a privileged bigot who'd sell our liberty to the highest bidder any day", he said. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Richard Durbin of IL - after Trump reportedly made the comment at an Oval Office meeting, where he was also is claimed to have said disparaging things about Haitian immigrants. What Trump did do, they said, was "call out the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest".

Democrats want to add to the government funding bill a codification of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which shields from deportation hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who entered the United States as minors. "The challenge for us now is now what he said but how we respond".

Trump made the remarks on Thursday in a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform, The Washington Post and The New York Times reported.

Under the policy, those immigrants are guaranteed protection and not at risk of expulsion from the country.

People briefed on the meeting said that a potential deal had been reached between Republicans and Democrats present at the meeting. "I don't think it makes it impossible, but I suspect the Democrats are sitting there going, 'Why would we want to compromise with him on anything?'"

"He continued: "....countries which are doing badly. "It really hurt. I'm really proud of my country and my people. They're s***hole countries. We should have more people from Norway". He called King a "great American hero". "Our bipartisan group continues to build support for the only deal in town". We have Haitians taking care of the American elderly.
