Trump used profane language January 11 as he questioned why the USA should permit immigrants from certain countries, according to three people briefed on the conversation. Lindsay Graham (R-SC), who was in attendance, told him that Trump's reported comments were "basically accurate".
The tweets suggest that Trump is interested in a system that would only accept individuals from certain countries and backgrounds in exchange for a DACA deal - as well as a much more substantial border investment than one year of funding and technology upgrades the lawmakers had presented.
"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" he asked, according to Durbin and others at the meeting.

"The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", Flake tweeted.
Perdue also seemed to question Senator Durbin's intentions, saying "it is not the first time" that the IL senator has accused someone of inflammatory language.
Two of them, Sens.
After Perdue said that the report that came out of the meeting was a "gross misrepresentation", host George Stephanopoulos pushed back, asking the Georgia Republican what exactly was misrepresented. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), another participant, saying that they did "not recall the President saying these comments specifically".
