Huckabee: If Trump Made 'S***hole' Remark, Melania Should Feed Him a Bar of Soap

Joe Scarborough: Entire Mainstream Media Is 'Reflexively Anti-Trump'

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) on Friday rejected President Trump's denial of the vulgar remarks he made in a bipartisan immigration meeting.

Earlier this morning, Trump took to Twitter to defend himself after the explosive report, confirmed by Fox News, broke on Thursday night.

“Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?” he said in a bipartisan meeting on immigration, according to multiple people in the room.

The Washington Post reported that he singled out Haitians, asking, “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out."

The remarks drew a firestorm of criticism and accusations that the president is a racist, but Trump took to Twitter to deny the reports.

Durbin, who was present for the talks, pushed back and said the reports are accurate. 

"He said these hateful things and he said them repeatedly," said Durbin, confirming the remark about Haitians and explaining that Trump referred specifically to African nations as "s***holes."

None of the Republican lawmakers who were at the meeting have backed up Trump's denials. 

Fellow Illinois Democrat Rep. Luis Gutierrez blasted Trump in an interview Thursday, calling Trump's remarks "vile" and "racist."

"We now know that we have in the White House someone who could lead the Ku Klux Klan in the United States of America, somebody who could be the leader of the neo-Nazis — and publish just his words," he said on MSNBC.

Republican U.S. Rep Mia Love (Utah), whose parents emigrated from Haiti, condemned Trump's comments as "unkind and divisive."
