Trump has also called for ending the chain migration, the fastest and easiest way to gain legal entry into America, through sponsorship by a family member who is already a legal resident or citizen of the US. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military", Trump tweeted.

Sen. Dick Durbin, the lone Democrat in the meeting, confirmed the comments Friday morning, calling the words "hate filled, vile and racist".

President Trump told reporters late Sunday that "I am not a racist" and denied reports that he referred to Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries". "I'm the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

Cotton and Perdue initially indicated they didn't recall what Trump said, before fully denying it on Sunday. "How many times do you want me to say that?".

Beyond his denial about the comments, Trump touched on topics ranging from DACA to North Korea.

"The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' " he said, taking issue with the president's tweet.

The controversy sparked a strong backlash, both in the U.S. and internationally, with Trump's opponents accusing him of flat-out racism, and countries he allegedly insulted demanding explanation and apologies.

DACA is the acronym of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a 2012 programme that gave foreigners who entered the United States as minors a legal permit to reside and work in the country. Durbin has said repeatedly. Sen. Lindsey Graham brought a plan to Trump that involved cutting the visa lottery in half and, at the behest of the Congressional Black Caucus, the rest would go to underrepresented countries in Africa and Temporary Protected Status nations, including Haiti.

He wasn't apologetic, the person said.

Hours after the meeting, reports emerged that Mr Trump had asked: "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

Previously, Perdue and Republican Sen.

President Donald Trump says he doesn't know if the government will shut down at the end of the week.
