United States President, Donald Trump, has denied using crude words attributed to him about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.
Reports that he had called them “shithole countries” in an Oval Office meeting generated a backlash worldwide.
But President Trump has tweeted that “this was not the language” he used in a meeting about immigration.
However, Democratic Senator, Dick Durban, said he heard President Trump use “vile, racist” language.
The Washington Post, the New York Times, Politico and the Wall Street Journal all reported the comments yesterday, quoting witnesses or people briefed on the meeting.
According to the BBC, the White House did not deny them.
While denying the specific comments today, President Trump admitted to using “tough” language.
