Flores responds to Trump's controversial remarks about other nations

"You called us racists or race-baiters".

After Trump was asked at Thursday's White House meeting if the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa, the president reportedly questioned why people from "expletive-hole countries" are coming to America. I certainly don't use that language.

In a series of Friday morning tweets, Trump said he used tough language during Thursday's meeting, but he denied using vulgarities. "You have seen the comments in the press".

"My hope is that it will inspire individuals to say I'm going to live my life to prove them wrong, that statement wrong, the misconceptions wrong, or the labels wrong", Jacques said.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", he tweeted. It is not true. Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

"That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from *****". Not more - not just once, but repeatedly.

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh said Trump is arguably the most influential person in the country and possibly the world. To believe otherwise is to oppose the very idea of America. "It was a heartbreaking moment", Durbin said.

That's when Durbin says the President interrupted.

Trump's alleged statement also prompted outrage from the African Union (AU), the organization that includes all the 54 African UN states plus Western Sahara, which is not recognized by the UN. "I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist".

Durbin made a point of bringing up Graham's reaction while the meeting was taking place.

"If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States", Coleville said. The largest group is El Salvador and the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian, and when I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians?

Additional reports also suggest Trump made the racist remarks and tried to limit the damage.

His comments came after worldwide figures and others accused Trump of making racist remarks during a meeting with Graham and other lawmakers discussing immigration reform.

"I have heard several different variations of what exactly was said".

"The American ideal is embraced by people all over the globe". It was best said a long time ago, E Pluribus Unum - Out of Many, One. "The president will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway". In the talks, he was presented an immigration reform by the "gang of six". We have Haitians taking care of the American elderly. It's a dignity many in this White House could learn from.
