The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!

The “language” the president referred to came during talks Thursday with lawmakers at the White House. Despite Trump’s denial, multiple sources have confirmed what was said, and the White House did not deny it overnight.

“Why are we having all these people from s—hole countries come here?” the president said, apparently referring to people from Haiti, as well as some Central American and African countries. He reportedly added that the U.S. should admit more people from countries like Norway.
