Washington - A senator present at a White House immigration meeting says President Donald Trump used vulgar language to describe African countries, saying he “said these hate filled things and he said them repeatedly.”

Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, on Friday told reporters that Trump questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and that he referenced “shithole countries” in Africa.

Durbin said “shitholes” was “the exact word used by the president not just once but repeatedly.”

Durbin added, “When the question was asked about Haitians ... he said, ‘Haitians? Do we need more Haitians?’”

Trump said on Twitter Friday that his language during the meeting was “tough,” but “this was not the language used.” He did not specifically deny using the word “shithole.”

Oiy, here we go again with one of the most unreliable members of congress making totally unsubstantiated claims about what Trump was supposed to have said - without any context whatsoever. Our petulant crybabies in the media are having their own predictable meltdown. Where's your proof? Where are the word-for-word transcripts? Where are the audio recordings? Where's the video? Where's the corroborating evidence? There is none - and our leftist crybabies neither need nor want any - because it is enough that they said it and we are supposed to buy it and believe it. Don't these imbeciles realize that with every outburst they only drive more and more people to Trump? Don't they realize that even if Trump actually what he is accused of saying that more and more people are ENCOURAGED by his comments precisely because he is giving voice to those feelings and sentiments held by the vast majority of American citizens? Evidently, in aping Saul Alinsky's tactics, they have evidently never bother to read Alinsky, nor do they have so much as a scintillia of a idea of who he was or what his writing represents? Oh, forgive me, that would require knowledge and academic integrity - VORBOTEN!!!!
