Booker rebuked Nielsen on Tuesday during a session of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee after she denied having heard Trump use the words "shithole" or "shithouse" to describe African countries during a White House meeting last week on immigration. She said it was a meeting of 12 people and there was "crosstalk".

On Tuesday, Nielsen, who was present at the explosive meeting, testified that the president used "strong language" and 'tough language, ' but said she didn't recall him saying 's***hole'. "The conversation was very impassioned, I don't dispute that the President was using tough language, others in the room were also using tough language".

Nielsen's comments came five days after the president ignited what Sen.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, called the current state of immigration negotiations quote an "s-show", and indicated he's been whip sawed by the president's changing position.

Listen to Booker's outrageous comments above. He again claimed that the president used the vulgar term, which he said Sen.

"Tens of millions of Americans are hurting right now because of what they're anxious about what happened in this White House", he said. 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.

Nielsen then said she was struck more by the fact that the conversation had gotten to a place where "inappropriate language" was used by other people in the Oval Office in front of the president. Trump called the comments "disgraceful". DHS giving "active defense" cyber tools to private sector Hoyer blasts Trump for "racist rhetoric" MORE during a hearing, after the Republican National Committee (RNC) accused him of "mansplaining". Dick Durbin, D-Ill. Funding for the border wall and proposed solutions for the 11 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally were also discussed during the hearing. Graham said he didn't know what happened on Thursday morning before the next immigration meeting.

In her testimony, Nielsen got repeatedly quizzed on whether she heard Trump say "s***hole" while railing against immigration from countries in Africa and Haiti. Now, I don't know where that guy went.

Asked about Kelly, the South Carolina Republican said the chief of staff is "a fine man, but he's part of the staff". I'm just not going to take it. "They give license to bigotry and hate in our country". "It's fair to say the president reacted strongly to that". Those of us who stand by and do nothing are complicit in that ignorance'.

Left to its own devices, the State Department came up with its own talking points to be used by US missions in Africa working to stem the damage, said a USA official, who wasn't authorized to disclose internal deliberations and demanded anonymity.
