However, his advisers notably did not dispute the most controversial of his reported remarks: using the word "s**thole" to describe African nations, and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.
But U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was at the meeting, insists the Republican president used the vulgar term. As president, Trump has reportedly said that he believes Haitians coming to the United States "all have AIDS".
Time is running out for President Trump and Congress to negotiate a deal to protect young, undocumented immigrants from getting deported and to fund the government, but on Friday, the back and forth over whether the president actually called African nations and Haiti "shithole countries" complicated the talks and further damaged Trump's standing on Capitol Hill.
