Trump is claimed to have questioned why the USA was would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "sh**hole" countries.

The "shithole countries" remark has vexed Republicans, compelling many to make statements criticizing Trump for the remarks. Chuck Grassley was repeatedly pressed on Trump's fitness for elected office. Joni Ernst of Iowa said the senator could not verify the vulgarity but "she would not agree' with it".

During a meeting with senators on immigration, Mr. Trump questioned why the United States would accept more people from "sh*thole countries", according to Durbin, a Democrat from IL.

Republicans who lie for Trump are setting themselves up to go down with Trump.

"President Trump was elected as an unconventional candidate, someone who promised to be unpredictable and to keep our enemies and adversaries around the world off center with his unpredictability and he has certainly demonstrated that", he said.

Beck marvels at the turn of events.

Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, alluded that it was true. The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel, ' Graham said in a statement Saturday. "How many times do you want me to say that?" Sen.

Two of them, Sens.

Georgia Sen. David Perdue called reports describing Trump as using vile language in the meeting a "gross misrepresentation" and said Democratic Sen.

"We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically", Cotton and Perdue said. They say, "But what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers".

Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst at the libertarian-leaning Cato Institute, is struck by the sudden shift in the Republican position on immigration.
