He also said it's impossible for her not remember what was said because the meeting was held in the Oval Office and everyone's "senses are heightened" when they step into the room.

Administration officials and lawmakers spent the holiday weekend debating the precise presidential vulgarity used, and moved to cast last Thursday's White House meeting as a salty affair, with expletives flying in all directions.

He refused to believe that she did not hear Trump's racially tinged comments at an Oval Office meeting and expressed dismay that she would not call out the president.

"I actually do not know that, sir, but I imagine that is the case", she said. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., claiming she couldn't remember Trump's words from only five days before. "When the commander-in- chief speaks, I listen".

On Tuesday, Graham said that the president said that the immigration deal had to be bipartisan, had to secure the border, had to institute a merit-based system and had to be fair to undocumented immigrants. "I'll just say, what Senator Durbin has portrayed is a misportrayal", Cotton told Little Rock radio station KARN on Tuesday. "They fester, they poison, they hurt, and they give license to people who peddle that hate into violence".

"I'm not going to get into all the details of a private meeting". "I want him back".

Nielsen, who was present at the now-infamous meeting, told the senators on the Judiciary Committee that she could not recall if Trump used the world "shithole" to describe African nations, even though the White House has never officially denied it and Sen.
