Republican Senators David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who both attended the meeting, said in a statement they did not "recall the president saying these comments specifically". "They're shithole countries. We should have more people from Norway". "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. "It is not true". "People come here because they're trying to improve their lives, not make it worse", she said. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

Trump's contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist.
Mr Trump had also failed to clearly condemn the "anti-Semitic and racist actions of white supremacists in Charlottesville" at a rally in Virginia last August, Mr Colville said.

Trump has repeatedly called for ending chain migration and replacing it with a legal immigration system that brings immigrants to the U.S.in lower levels and based on their merit, English proficiency skills, and ability to readily assimilate to American culture. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs", he tweeted.
