Trump reportedly referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "s...hole countries" during a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform yesterday, questioning why he should accept immigrants from those places, rather than from countries like Norway.
Waters, who has long called for the president's impeachment, said that the comments proved her point that Trump is a "hopeless and ignorant bigot". Instead, she said, the country has been subjected to Trump's ire.
"I find President Trump's reported comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries unacceptable and inaccurate", Siplin said.
"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" He added that he never said anything derogatory about Haitians. Never said 'take 'em out.' Made up by Dems.
"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said.More news: Bautista Agut edges Del Potro in Auckland final

U.S. President Donald Trump implied on Friday the language he used during the meeting on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was "tough" but he didn't use the infamous "shithole countries" term.
Trump has since denied that he made the remarks.
"I'm not surprised at the sentiment expressed - it's consistent with what he's said - but that he would do that knowing the fury it would cause" did astound him.
Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-IL), who attended the meeting said Trump's denial is a lie.
Narkewicz is one of a number of MA officials who have come out to chastise the president for his alleged remarks, including U.S. Sens.
It also underlined the strong historical ties between the two countries and urged the USA to respect the dignity of its "noble and courageous" people.
Trump's comments came as two senators presented details of a bipartisan compromise that would extend protections against deportation for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants - and also strengthen border protections, as Trump has insisted.
