Trump then "said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist", Durbin said, adding that "shithole" was "the exact word used by the president, not just once but repeatedly".

When Trump heard that Haitians were among those who would benefit from the proposed deal, he asked whether they could be left out of the plan, asking, "Why do we want people from Haiti here?"

"The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it", he said.

'I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out". I've not seen one of them that's inaccurate.

The Haitian government said in a statement that "these insulting and reprehensible statements in no way reflect the virtues of wisdom, restraint and discernment that must be cultivated by any high political authority".

The lawmakers were describing how certain immigration programs operate, including one to give safe haven in the United States to people from countries suffering from natural disasters or civil strife. "I do not think this way, nor do I agree with this kind of sentiment", Gov. Rick Scott said.

Asked what it would take to bring something to the floor - Cornyn said any deal would have to hit the four items identified by the President in a meeting on Tuesday - a DACA fix, border security, something to curtail "chain migration" or family-based migration, and ending the diversity lottery - and be "something that the President would sign". "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs".
