Durbin asserts Trump used the word. Sen. Dick Durbin asserted Tuesday that President Donald Trump called certain African nations "Shithole countries" during a bipartisan meeting on immigration reform at the White House last week, despite evolving explanations from some Republicans.
"Let me say they're wrong. I can tell you explicitly they are wrong," the Illinois Democrat told CNN's Jake Tapper in an exclusive sit-down interview. "And let me also say, is that their defense, that S-House is acceptable, S-Hole he would never say? Come on. To think that the President of the United States would refer to any country on Earth as an S-House country, for goodness' sakes, what does that say?"
Tapper's interview with Durbin will air on CNN's "The Lead" at 4 p.m. ET. Ref. CNNImage from Wikipedia public domain
