Republican senator insists Trump didn't disparage Haiti, African nations with profane remark


Though Sen. David Purdue, a Georgia Republican, said on Friday that he could not recall Trump's characterization, he repeatedly dismissed questions about whether Trump used the description, saying Trump "did not use that word". "And I know, and I know what Dick Durbin has said about the President's repeated statements is incorrect". Lindsey Graham were mistaken in indicating Trump had.

'I'm saying that this is a gross misrepresentation, it's not the first time Senator Durbin has done it, and it is not productive to solving the problem that we have at hand, ' Perdue said. The president, in the meeting, also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the USA, according to people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorized to describe the meeting publicly.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.), who also appeared on "Face The Nation" Sunday, said he did not believe Durbin misrepresented the president's comments.
