Although Trump denied using the expletive, senior Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who attended the Thursday meeting at the White House asserted that the president did resort to the crude slur that liberal United States media outlets went to town with at once. "In regards to Senator Durbin's 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". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

Trump's alleged remarks are certain to further inflame Haitians already angered by his decision to rescind Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, for refugees from the island.
