"He cares about the economy".
Trumpdenies the reports and told the media on Sunday he is "the least racist person they've ever interviewed".
Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the lawmakers' meeting, said that "shithole" was the "exact word used by the President, not just once but repeatedly".
"This has turned into an s- show and we need to get back to being a great country", Graham said Tuesday during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. In an interview on Friday, Perdue had said he didn't remember the president using such language.
He also shared his new nickname for Durbin.
Trump allies and others familiar with the meeting have argued, at varying times, that the president said nothing of the sort, that he actually said "shithouse", that he used the word "shithole" to describe African countries but not Haiti, and that Trump did make the "shithole countries" comment as reported, but that the comment was acceptable. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private conversation. When Trump says he wants to bar Haitians and Africans, he aims to admit fewer black people.
However, Trump had, while signing the proclamation for King's Day on Wednesday, said the late civil rights leader "dedicated his life to a vision: that all Americans would live free from injustice and enjoy equal opportunity as children of God".
Pressed whether he believes Trump is racist, Hoyer wouldn't initially answer directly, saying, "If you use racist rhetoric, if you pursue policies based upon a racial premise, I consider that to be the definition of a racist".
Trump was meeting with lawmakers about a potential deal on immigration last week when he questioned why the US should admit more people from Africa and Haiti. So far, allocating blame among everyone in the meeting because a Republican senator rebuking the president happened to quote the racist words the president had just said is the White House's most embarrassing spin attempt yet. "We're not going to let this end like it is, and to those of us more desirous of a more secure border, we'll get something done", Graham continued.
Bruce LeVell, who is also a business owner in Atlanta, said he was with King's niece, Alveda, and other civil rights leaders at the city's celebration of its iconic son.
Since news of his comment referring to "shithole countries" broke on Thursday, Trump said defensively that it was "not the language used", although he admitted that it was "tough".
Graham said Congress and the White House still could come up with a deal on DACA, as long as it contained some measures on border security and changes to the legal immigration system.
Responding to Democrats' assertions that Trump's comments were "racist", Sanders calls the claim "outrageous", citing their previous embrace of Trump.
Several people who were at the meeting last week or familiar with the discussions, said Trump disparaged those countries in vulgar, racially tinged terms.
