Trump Defends Self After Comments, Says: 'I Am Not A Racist'

The fact was confirmed by two separate sources who were present at the meeting. "You know, you don't help someone who has an alcohol problem by constantly calling him a drunk". "This is for anyone who may be taken aback by my comments: I don't really care if you are".

"I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals". Dick Durbin of IL and Republican Sen.

Some of them are his friends, and I can hear them now, telling me: 'Donald didn't mean that, ' 'Donald isn't a racist, ' 'I think it was taken out of context.'. Durbin said the remarks were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

The White House initially did not deny the comment.

Hours after the story broke on Thursday, White House spokesperson Raj Shah did not deny the "shithole" remark.

The Department has noted President Trump's tweet on Friday, 12 January 2018, in which he denies making the crude and offensive statement.

On Friday, Mr Trump on Friday tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been "tough".

Meanwhile, the Botswana government in a statement on Friday said it has summoned the United States ambassador in that country to express its displeasure over what it termed "derogatory" and "racial" remarks by the U.S. leader.

"We're ready, willing and able to make a deal on DACA", Trump said, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals that protects immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children.

Former model Ivana, 68, released a tell-all memoir, Raising Trump, late a year ago foccused on her three children and her relationship with the former business mogul who became President. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Love had called on Trump to apologize for his comments earlier this week. He told reporters: "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

She said her ex-husband would not do anything "irresponsible" as USA leader. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., confronted Trump about it at the time. "Durbin has done it, and it is not productive to solving the problem that we have at hand". There were calls for Trump to issue an apology.

"I don't recall him saying that exact phrase".

"Um, well, I think they were - yes", she answered Tapper. "He feels very passionate about it". "I don't recall that specific phrase being used". Lemon added. "I can't say that".

The Republican from Florida issued a statement.

Trump announced in September he was scrapping the program, but with a six-month lag - meaning those covered by DACA would be subject to deportation starting March.
