Tom Cotton and David Perdue, said they "do not recall the President saying these comments specifically".

"People have come to this country from everywhere, and people from everywhere have made America great", McCain said in a statement.

Many supporters and critics swiftly condemned the president's comments, while some of his biggest supporters defended him.

Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, on Friday told reporters that Trump questioned why the us would accept more immigrants from Haiti and that he referenced "shithole countries" in Africa.

Trump on Friday denied using certain "language", but didn't offer more specifics.

Dr. Ronny Jackson, in a statement released by the White House, said the examination "went exceptionally well". "Haiti has long history with the United States, dating back to the American Revolutionary War, (during which) 500 heroic Haitians volunteered to fight alongside the American troops for America's independence".

In multiple tweets Friday morning, the president said "this was not the language used" and insisted he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians".

US Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the gathering, yesterday said that Trump used "vile, vulgar" language, including repeatedly using the word "s--hole" when speaking about African countries.

Trump's physical exam - the first of his presidency - took place today at Walter Reed Military Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, outside Washington DC, according to the Associated Press. "But for him to confront the president as he did - literally sitting next to him - took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it".

"I will be signing", he said in a Cabinet Room meeting Tuesday. "Do we need more Haitians?'" Durbin recounted, NBC News reported.

"These comments clearly reflect the President's true feelings on immigrants and make it extremely doubtful that he will work in an honest, decent way that reflects America's best values on legislation to protect DREAMers", Hoyer said. "Neither is Haiti or any other country in distress", she said. Three people briefed on the conversation described the language.

Sources told Reuters on Thursday that Trump had questioned why the United States would want immigrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti and some African countries during a briefing on draft immigration legislation.

Just 12 days in to the New Year, the White House is already in serious damage control mode.

Trump sat down with senators and congressmen at the White House to discuss a proposed bipartisan deal that would limit immigrants from bringing family members into the country and restrict the green card visa lottery in exchange for shielding hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.
