He said those hateful things , and he said them repeatedly ." “In the course of his comments, [ he ] said things which were hate -filled, vile, and racist,” Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois said .

Dick Durbin forcefully rejected President Donald Trump ’s denial over the language he used to describe African nations and that he disparaged Haitians during a White House meeting. " He said these hate -filled things and he said them repeatedly

Durbin told reporters that Trump's comments as reported by the Post were accurate.

"You've seen the comments in the press," Durbin said. "I've not seen one of them that's inaccurate. To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words. It is not true. He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly."

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) were also present in the meeting and were surprised by Trump's remarks, the Post reported.

Durbin told reporters that Graham "spoke up" when Trump made the remark and praised him for his "political courage."

"My colleague [Graham] spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said," Durbin said, according to MSNBC. "For him to confront the president as he did, literally sitting next to him, took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it."

In a statement Thursday, the White House did not deny Trump's "sh****ole" comments.

But Friday morning, Trump denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country" and said that while he used "tough" language in the meeting with lawmakers, "this was not the language used."

Trump's comments drew backlash from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, media figures and foreign governments, many of whom accused Trump of racist behavior.
