Trump Denies Crude Slur against Migrant Countries

US President Donald Trump has denied using crude words attributed to him about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, BBC reported.

Reports that he had called them "shithole countries" in an Oval Office meeting generated a backlash worldwide.

But Mr Trump has tweeted that "this was not the language" he used in a meeting about immigration.

However Democratic Senator Dick Durban said he heard Mr Trump use "vile, racist" language.

The Washington Post, the New York Times, Politico and the Wall Street Journal all reported the comments on Thursday, quoting witnesses or people briefed on the meeting. The White House did not deny them.
