US President Donald Trump repeatedly used an incendiary slur to describe countries including Haiti and African nations during a meeting about an emerging immigration deal, a senior Democratic senator at the meeting confirmed Friday. 

“That’s when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from ‘shitholes,’ Democratic Senator Dick Durbin told MSNBC.

“The exact word used by the president, not just once but repeatedly,” he added.
