Yet Sens. David Perdue, R-Ga., and Tom Cotton, R-Ark., seemed to back the president in a written statement saying:

"President Trump brought everyone to the table this week and listened to both sides. But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith. 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."
Could Durbin be lying about the remarks? I know I would be shocked if he was.

You know, maybe if this was the first time we could ignore it. But it's just a another notch in Trumps racist comments and actions.

I'm not even going to ask you how you define a country as a ****hole. Because I'm sure I'll just be dissapointed in your answer.
So stating that our immigration policy should be to let in people from well to do countries is means he is a pro-white racist? You liberals crack me up

When our founders came here, they were oppressed and it has been our core goal ever since to be as diverse and welcoming as possible. What would we be w/o the Irish potato famine, the refugees from vietnam, the germans of the 1940s? they were all sh holes at the time. we are better and richer for each.

yaknow I suspect a few Trump supporters might be a surprised to hear what he calls them behind closed doors. I suspect its not "winners ".
If he's just "telling it like it is" like a regular guy
well yes and when I look back at younger donald trump I can't believe this is the same guy but once he did say republicans were more gullible.

If that is what he said, then I think it would depend on the context. But that is not what he said.

Can you at least acknowledge how his remarks might make Americans feel, especially when taking into account his history of racially insensitive remarks and actions?

We all have different experiences and different lives. Part of us being able to unite again as a nation, liberals conservatives etc, is at least attempting to see things through different perspective. It doesn't make me a stupid liberal because I think his remarks were racist, it doesn't make you a racist because you agree with his remarks.

But we gotta find some common ground here or else what is the point of all of this?

The only person who has zero credibility is Trump.

Is there actual evidence Trump called countries "sh*t-holes?"

I hope he did, but I'm guessin' there's no proof and could just be another liberal conspiracy theory.

Is there actual audio or video of these comments?
