I didn't say 's***hole' but I did use tough language, says Trump as he tries to clean up fallout from Oval Office rant - but is immediately called a liar by senator who was there and who says: 'He said those hate-filled things repeatedly' | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


I didn't say 's***hole' but I did use tough language, says Trump as he tries to clean up fallout from Oval Office rant - but is immediately called a liar by senator who was there and who says: 'He said those hate-filled things repeatedly'

President Donald Trump on Friday denied making a widely condemned comment railing against accepting immigrants from 's***hole countries,' even as he admitted to using 'tough' language in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers.

'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,' Trump wrote, using unusually passive language in an effort to walk back the comment.

'What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!' Trump tweeted Friday.

The president's latest comments were immediately contradicted by Illinois Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin, who was in the Oval Office meeting and says Trump made the 'vile and vulgar' comments repeatedly.
