Trump Insists He's The 'Least Racist Person'

Mr Durbin said that when Mr Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the president responded: "Haitians?"

"If you don't have a tough skin, this is not a good business to get into", Durbin said.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin accused the president of using "hate-filled, vile and racist" language during the meeting.

Mr Trump has faced heavy criticism since it was reported last week that he called Haiti and African nations "shithole countries" during a meeting in the Oval Office. However, one of the Republican Senators who attended the meeting today claimed that Trump never used that word.

" "Que faire pour la " Nuit de la lecture " samedi 20 janvier ?
Samedi 20 janvier, aura lieu la deuxième édition de la Nuit de la lecture , parrainée par Daniel Pennac . La seconde Nuit de la lecture débutera en fin de journée et se poursuivra jusqu'au bout de la nuit! .

Ivana Trump, who was married to Donald Trump from 1977 to 1992, said the pair remain friends and she still talks to him on the phone, mostly about the kids and holidays. "The president and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", he said.

On Friday also, he reiterated his support for the merit- based immigration system which will take America to the "next level", asserting that he wanted safety and security of Americans and an end to "massive" inflow of drugs.

The US President was married to Ivana from 1977 until their divorce in 1992. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed.

The African Union has also said it was alarmed by President Trump's remarks and issued a statement calling for the US leader to apologise for the remarks.

But in separate TV interviews Sunday, they outright denied that Trump had made the comments. David Perdue (R-Ga.) gave a conflicting account on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, claiming the president did not use that "vulgarity" to describe Haiti and African countries.

State Department officials said diplomats have been advised not to try to interpret or soften the president's remarks.

Ivana Trump, who has three children with the President - Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric - said his use of Twitter was "actually not bad" as the media "change everything you say".

Like other excuses for Trump's latest racist immigration remarks, this one is very, uh, shitty.
