Lindsey Graham After Trump 'S**thole' Comments: 'Diversity Has Always Been Our Strength'

Graham was at the Oval Office Thursday to present a bipartisan agreement to overhaul the nation's immigration system to Trump. We also love our homeland of Haiti and we know very well that Haiti is a wonderous country. To no surprise, the President started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words.

The White House released a statement that did not deny the remarks.

Jean, a refugee from Haiti who came to Canada in 1968 and was raised in Thetford Mines, Que., also noted that Friday was the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that struck her native country, one of 57 member French-language countries - many from Africa - that form La Francophonie.

Trump previously told Haitian-Americans: "I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion", while he was campaigning previous year in Miami's Little Haiti. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

US President Donald Trump's use of an obscene word to describe African countries and Haiti has sparked fury and left many media scratching their heads on whether to repeat the slur.

Sen. Jeff Flake, a fierce Republican critic of the President, was not at the meeting but tweeted that he had heard directly from those who were in attendance.

Sundrop Carter, of the Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition, says there's a way to show they disagree with the president. He suggested in a statement Friday that the President had said something questionable, but Graham did not directly say Trump had used the term "shithole" to describe African countries.

The Supreme Court will on Friday hear a public interest plea seeking an independent probe into the death of special CBI judge B.H. Loya, who was hearing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case in which BJP president Amit Shah was an accused.

On "The Situation Room" Friday, Ryan cited an unnamed "influencer" and "child and product of the sixties" who advocated that anti-Trump activists call various companies and talk about Trump's comments.

Sen. Durbin says the president called for more European immigrants into the country, asking "why do we need more Haitians, take them out". That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from 's***holes.' The exact word used by the President. "Not just once but repeatedly". Trump said, according to reports from multiple news outlets.

During a Thursday meeting on immigration with a bipartisan group of lawmakers, Trump criticized protections the USA has given to immigrants from various underdeveloped countries.

His press office characterized his statement as being about "DACA" rather than about Trump, indicating Graham's desire not to fan the flames more than necessary.

"Why are we having all these people from s***thole countries come here?"

Trump's denial came among a series of other tweets in which he defended his immigration stance. "Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime....", Trump tweeted. I was very proud of him. "And whether you vote for me or you don't vote for me, I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion whether you vote for me or not".
