After a media blow-up regarding language President Donald Trump used in describing certain countries, the President took to Twitter to defend himself, claiming the comment never happened.

The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!

It had been previously reported that Trump used the term “sh*thole” to describe Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations, while wondering why we didn’t take in more immigrants from nations like Norway. Many in the media and on social media interpreted the comments as racially-tinged.

The denial came amid a series of tweets in which the President also blasted the DACA deal reached by U.S. Senators.

The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime…..

….countries which are doing badly. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level. I want safety and security for our people. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs. I want to fund our military, not do a Dem defund….

….Because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards. The Dems will threaten “shutdown,” but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. Get smart, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018

Trump has previously suggested that there is a middle ground for both Republicans and Democrats on DACA, with an extension possible if Congress would approve funding for a border wall.
