President Trump blasted out a Twitter bomb against Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) Monday afternoon, over Durbin’s claim that the president uttered a profanity-laced statement at a meeting in the Oval Office last Thursday regarding immigrants.
After Durbin went to the media claiming that Trump called Haiti, El Salvador and other African countries as “sh**hole countries,” all pretenses of a bipartisan agreement on immigration reform was shattered, as the left has erupted in outrage, claiming Trump is racist.
Trump has denied that he used that wording, and in his twitter slam against Durbin Monday afternoon, he laid the blame fully at Durbin’s feet for “blowing DACA.”
In addition, Trump laid the blame on Durbin for hurting the military, as funding for the military is at risk if lawmakers cannot agree on a budget and a government shutdown occurs on Friday. Republicans have stated they will not vote for a budget without defense spending included, and Democrats have stated they will not support it if DACA is not included.
“Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting. Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military,” Trump tweeted.
