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".
