Sens. Cotton and Perdue: No recollection of Trump making inflammatory immigration comments

Brokaw suggests GOP senators who didn't hear Trump remarks should get hearing aids

Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, who has attended multiple meetings with the president on immigration throughout the past year and has proposed his own plan that eliminates the visa lottery system and cuts legal immigration by 50 percent over a decade.

They issued a joint statement saying "We do not recall the President saying these comments specifically". Bob GoodlatteRobert (Bob) William GoodlatteRosenstein to testify before House Judiciary Committee next week Conservative pressure on Sessions grows Clock ticking down on NSA surveillance powers MORE (R-Va.), reportedly referred to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and certain African nations as coming from "shithole countries".

Before President Trump's "s--hole countries" comments leaked, so did the details of a bipartisan immigration fix that would codify Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Obama-era deportation protections that are set to end on March 5.

David Purdue (R-GA) released a statement Friday about comments made by President Trump in a meeting on Immigration on Thursday.

Senator Dick Durbin was the only democrat in the room.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump insisted in a series of Friday morning tweets, pushing back on some depictions of the meeting.

"In the course of [Trump's] comments, he said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist", he told reporters in IL, according to USA Today. Gardner, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, will also weigh in on North Korea and the 2018 midterms. "But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith", said Sens.

Cotton and Perdue hold the same anti-immigration views as Trump and are allies of the president. Tim Scott told the Post and Courier in Charleston that he had spoken with Graham, who confirmed to him the reports of the comments were "basically accurate".

"Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems. Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

The allegation against Trump came as pro-immigration senators tried to pitch Trump on a deal to protect younger immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Tweeted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive".
