Senator Cory Booker goes viral after speaking against Trump's sh*thole comment

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker angrily criticized Nielsen's comments, telling her: "Your silence and your amnesia is complicity". It was Nielsen's attempt to brush aside the president's offensive suggestion that revealed the racism not-so-subtly hidden behind Trump's proposal for a "merit-based" immigration system.

Nielsen said what struck her during the meeting was "the general profanity that was used in the room by nearly everyone".

One person who attended the meeting told aides they heard the latter expletive, while others recalled the president saying the more widely reported "shithole", according to a person briefed on the meeting but not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. "She couldn't remember what the president of the United States, the commander-in-chief, her boss, was saying", Mr. She repeatedly denied hearing the word "shithole", though she admitted hearing specific cuss words used by "a variety of members".

"I decline to spend any more of my time responding other than to say the obvious - I did not and will not lie under oath and say I heard something I didn't", Nielsen said in the statement.

During her testimony, Nielsen said she did not remember hearing Trump say "sh*thole" when referring to immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and some African countries.

"I think he did ask 'would it cover European countries?'" she said.


'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used.

"I'm not going to get into all the details of a private meeting".

Graham said that Trump of last Tuesday was someone he was "proud to golf with, call my friend" and who understood immigration reform had to be bipartisan.

"Your silence and your amnesia is complicit... Well, we know what happened in Europe when people just did their jobs".

In a hearing Tuesday, Graham said Trump expressed openness to an immigration deal, only to reject it hours later.

Trump addressed the controversy in a vague tweet claiming he used "tough" language in immigration meeting, but did not say "s****hole countries".
