"People briefed on the Oval Office conversation on immigration reform Thursday said Trump questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and what he called 'shithole countries" in Africa.
Two sources close to the administration told NBC News that Trump worked the phones Thursday night, calling friends and allies outside the White House to gauge reaction to fallout from the "shithole" comments.
He went on to talk about he witnessed in Haiti, stating the nation's people had "been through more, they've withstood more, they've fought back against more injustice than our President ever has". He specifically denied saying "take them out", in reference to Haitian immigrants. Illinois Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin said Friday that Trump "said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly".
While Kalondo said the comments were "clearly" racist, she didn't believe they indicated a shift in the USA stance towards Africa.
"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".
He also said he appreciated Durbin's statements, and he remains committed to a bipartisan solution to keep Dreamers in the country. "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", Graham said in a statement. He has emerged as a leader in negotiations over how to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a 2012 executive order from President Barack Obama protecting roughly 800,000 immigrants from deportation who were brought to the country illegally by their parents as young children. Day, he did not respond to repeated questions about his use of the vulgarity or if he is a racist.
Once it was clear by mid-afternoon on Thursday that Trump was not going to support the bipartisan deal, the group led by Durbin and Graham issued a terse statement.

The results have been incredible as the Citizens are playing like the best team in Premier League history. The Citizens are now top of the league standings, 15 points ahead of Chelsea and 14 ahead of Man United.
But Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who was reportedly at the meeting said the U.S. president used "shitholes" in the context of African countries.
"President Trump denies using that language".
"I can not believe that in the history of the White House and that Oval Office any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin told the press. They don't blink. They stand tall and they have dignity.
"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory about any country facing such difficulties", Duarte said.
Mia Love of Utah, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, said President Donald Trump's aleged comments questioning why Haitian, Salvadoran and African immigrants from "s***hole" countries should be protected in immigration legislation are "unkind, divisive, elitist and fly in the face of our nation's values".
