GOP Senators "Don't Recall" Shithole Comments [View all]

Source: The Hill

Two GOP senators said Friday they "do not recall" President Trump's reference to "shithole" countries during an Oval Office meeting on immigration.

Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) issued a joint statement saying they did not recall the president making the exact comments, and called out Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) for confirming the comments.

"In regards to Senator Durbinís accusation, we do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest," the senators wrote.
