Washington - Two Republicans who were in the Oval Office with President Donald Trump say they “do not recall” him talking about “shithole” countries in Africa.

Georgia Sen. David Purdue and Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton issued a joint statement Friday. They say, “We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically.” They say, “But what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers.”

Trump’s slur came as pro-immigration senators tried to pitch Trump on a deal to protect younger immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. Perdue and Cotton had travelled separately to the White House.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois says Trump made the comments, as do people briefed on the conversation.

The White House isn't denying it, they don't say that the president didn't use this word.

The Republican attendees don't say that it's not true (or that they would of noticed), they only claim "not to remember".

Some participants do remember. So whom do you believe?

Its interesting how Donald love at Norway one of the worst EU Country during the Nazis, the most outspoken today against Israel now that you mentioned "Herr Donalds Ancestors) Nazi Germany. The only 7 Countrys who voted pro Israel in the UN with the USA are seven African, south American s..... Countrys like Togo, Nicaragua etc. Lets see how someone will explain this:
Trump loves Norway, his ancestors are German and he hates Pro Israel sh... countrys. I guess the "apple doesn't fall far from the tree."

Your comments are utter stupidty. Lke even if you hate Trump one thing is clear. The man is an ohev yisroel and supporter of Israel. I think Rubashkin confirmed that but even before that. He has only proposed pro Israel polciy


If you want to knock trump for his lack of morality and coarse behavior, thats fair game. But to criticize his pro Israel pro jewish stance and to bring in some silly german ancestory nonsense is just plan out lying.

Because its not racist. it had nothing to do with the people's skin color. We don;t want backwards people from Uzbekastain or some other white country either. We want the smartest and brightest.

The notion that this had to do with their skin color is lies and fake news.
