The park's boundaries include the Prince Hall Masonic Temple, a site that King used as the headquarters for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, according to a White House spokesman. The Illinois Democrat said, "I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday". The President did not answer.

Two Republican Senators claim to have not heard President Trump saying that certain African and Latin American nations are "shithole" countries.

Mr. Trump issued a denial Friday about using that language where he reportedly described Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "sh*thole countries". It's about opening the door wider to humanity's worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia that will potentially disrupt and destroy the lives of many people.

"Why do we need more Haitians, take them out", he said, citing sources. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". "He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly". "If those countries aren't as you described, Democrats should be happy to deport criminal aliens back to them".

The White House meeting on immigration included a bipartisan group of senators.

"Part of what makes America so special is that we welcome the best and brightest in the world, regardless of their country of origin", Hatch's office tweeted.

Trump's 'shithole' comments stirred anger and condemnation, but not from everyone
Trump appeared to deny using the term later in tweet. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he said. The president's remark is "unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation's values", she said.

The alleged comments came during a DACA meeting on Thursday. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) went on record to say he was in the room when it was made.

It added that the comment as reported "reflects a totally erroneous and racist view of the Haitian community and its contribution to the United States".

Assistant Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Steve Goldstein noted that Trump denies that he uses such language, but said the envoys had been briefed on how to respond to complaints.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson opened his Thursday night's show by suggesting Trump said what everyone already knows. You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome. Trump wrote on Twitter early Friday.

High-ranking United States Senator Richard "Dick" Durbin, a Democrat from IL, claims that the president used the insult "repeatedly" to refer to developing nations; Donald Trump patently denies making any such remark.
