"I don't know if there is going to be a shutdown", Trump said, before the dinner.

Trump has given up on the immigration pact hammered out over months in the Senate by the bipartisan group after - in his latest meeting with lawmakers, including Durbin, on the subject - he reportedly called nations like El Salvador and Haiti " s***hole countries". "I am not a racist". "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed, that I can tell you".

The Republican denied making the comments in the meeting, saying he used "tough language" but suggested had not referred to the countries as "s***holes".

One reporter asked: "Mr President, will you give an apology for the statement yesterday?", before another said: "Mr President, did you refer to African nations as s***holes?" "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military", Trump added.

But in between, the president sat in a White House meeting on immigration policy and denigrated much of the African diaspora as "sh-hole countries" while expressing a preference for immigrants from Norway, a majority white nation.

A confidant of Trump's told The Associated Press that the president spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction on his inflammatory remarks.

It said the "remarks dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity" and that there was a serious need "for dialogue between the US Administration and the African countries".

"I think it's unfair to sort of paint him, 'oh well, he's a racist, ' when I know for a fact that he cares very deeply about the people of Haiti because he helped finance a trip where they would get vision back for 200 people in Haiti", Paul said.

Mr Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who had fled to the United States after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people.

President Trump Says He Is 'the Least Racist Person'
Almost 80 percent (76%) say President Trump's reported "s***hole" comments were "inappropriate". Trump and some Republicans have said the senators' agreement is insufficient.

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

On Monday, Graham told a SC paper that his "memory hasn't evolved". "And I felt that was a statement that had to be answered directly", Durbin said.

"In the course of his comments he said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist", said Durbin.

Senator Dick Durbin, a Democratic sponsor of the bipartisan deal on the Dreamers who was there, confirmed Trump made the quoted "shithole countries" remark not once, but repeatedly.

Speaking to reporters for about three minutes as he entered his golf club, the president made his first comments on the mistaken alert sent to Hawaii residents on Saturday warning that a ballistic missile attack was imminent.

Trump has also said comments attributed to him weren't made. Durbin charged. "He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

"What do we want?"

"They're trying to take away our history", Trump said at a rally in Phoenix in August.
