“I looked into this and spoke with somebody who was in that meeting and it did not happen.”

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) accused President Donald Trump on Friday of referring to African countries as “s***holes” during a meeting that they both attended on Thursday.

Durbin told reporters that what Trump said was “hate-filled, vile and racist,” adding that “the most disheartening thing to me is my belief that that was the first time words that hateful had been spoken in the Oval Office of the White House.”
