Mr Trump's comments came as two senators presented details of a bipartisan compromise that would protect DACA immigrants and also strengthen border protections.

When Durbin was asked later about a tweet from Trump, in which he seemed to deny using the word "shithole", the senator said, "I stand by what I said".

The president tweeted later on Friday: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". He went on to criticize the immigration deal, saying: "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

President Trump "is not a racist". Now his former rival for the White House is weighing in. What does it say when you hear that he made these remarks in what was a semi-private context?

The Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro said the problem with Trump's remarks was that he used a curse word and that "he said it behind closed doors unlike Joe Biden, while Conservative pundit Ann Coulter said that "s***hole countries" should be given respect by being called "s***hole nations".
