As good as he is at playing the media, he also seems remarkably eager to shove his foot in his mouth. "The president and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", he said.
"Your silence and your amnesia is complicity", he said.
Many nations summoned their US ambassadors to explain and demonstrate over the language used by the US president. Graham also attended the meeting. She said: "Why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV". The report, issued on Tuesday, said about 73 percent of the 549 individuals convicted of "international terrorism-related" charges in U.S. federal courts between Sept. 11, 2001, and Dec. 31, 2016, were born outside the United States.
US president Donald Trump has defended himself in the wake of recent disparaging comments about Haiti and African nations, declaring that "I am not a racist". The program shielded these immigrants, often referred to as "Dreamers", from deportation and granted them permits to work.
"The President's physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well".
It was as if they were on the witness stand and wanted to issue as narrow a denial as possible.
"You can't have an immigration compromise if everybody is out there calling the president a racist", he added. Trump announced last year that he will end the Obama-era DACA program unless lawmakers come up with a solution by March. That, too, has wide bipartisan support.
Trump has also said comments attributed to him weren't made. "But what we have to do is not let that define this moment", said Republican Senator Cory Gardner on CBS's "Face the Nation" program. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" Who are the front runners?
Advocacy groups for immigrants condemned what Trump reportedly said.
Donald Trump did not use the term "shithole" to describe developing countries during a meeting on immigration, instead using the word "shithouse", it has been claimed.
Durbin said after the Oval Office meeting that Trump's words to the senators were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".
During the event, as a reporter twice asked the US President about whether he is a racist, Trump refused to answer.
However, Republicans and Democrats have both said they either heard Trump say it, or heard directly from colleagues who did.
Back in 1989, Trump paid for full-page adverts in four different newspapers demanding the return of the death penalty for innocent five black teenagers who were arrested after the rape of a woman in Central Park.
"When I mentioned that fact to him, he said 'Haitians, do we need more Haitians?'" Durbin said.
"He said: 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".
