The president added that he wanted "a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level" and "safety and security" for Americans.

"The comment is incredibly disappointing", Scott said after talking to Graham. "As a grandson of immigrants I believe that immigrants add greatly to American life and culture". Richard Durbin of IL - after Trump reportedly made the comment at an Oval Office meeting, where he was also is claimed to have said disparaging things about Haitian immigrants.

U.S. diplomats serving in Haiti and African countries have been briefed to convey Washington's respect if they are summoned to explain President Donald Trump's alleged insults.

Trump seemed to deny making the remark, but multiple senators from both parties that were in the meeting either confirmed or did not dispute it. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was in the meeting, said the reports were correct.

In a video published in the CNN, US senator Dick Durbin said that Trump "said things which were hate-filled, vile, and racist", adding that "I can not believe that in the history of the White House, and that of Office, any president has ever spoken those words".

When asked what Trump had said in the meeting, Durbin said, "I can not believe that in the history of the White House and of that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday".

He also said he appreciated Durbin's statements, and he remains committed to a bipartisan solution to keep Dreamers in the country.

'My colleague, Republican senator Lindsey Graham of SC, spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said, ' Durbin said in the Capitol, CNN reported.

A senior Democratic aide told BuzzFeed News the president had been very positive about cutting an immigration deal earlier in the week, and Democrats had been optimistic until Thursday morning.


Trump disputed the Post's account, tweeting that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians".

Mr Trump has been widely criticised for the comments he reportedly made during a discussion about immigration from African nations.

On CNN, they began using the word in their chyrons and anchors like Anderson Cooper, Jake Tapper, and Don Lemon all said it on air.

The Haitian government Friday condemned Trump's comments as a "racist view of the Haitian community". "I'm Don Lemon. The president of the United States is racist", Lemon memorably stated blankly.

Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House and after Trump and Mike Pence, the third-most powerful Republican. rebuked the president for the words calling them "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

Trump denied in a tweet that he used the controversial language.

President Donald Trump greets Sen. Since they are receiving American aid, they were slow to criticize the president's comment. Orrin Hatch of Utah called for a "detailed explanation" of the comments, and said immigrants, "regardless of their country of origin", make America "special".

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.
