In a separate interview on ABC's This Week, Perdue also insisted that Trump did not use the word "shithole" in describing Haiti and African countries.

"Did you see what various senators in the room said about my comments?" he asked, referring to lawmakers who were meeting with him in the Oval Office on Thursday when Trump is said to have made the comments.
Another Republican senator who was there, Lindsey Graham, did not deny the sayings.
