Two House Democrats announced on Friday that they planned to introduce a measure to censure President Donald Trump, following his comments describing Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries".
Trump is claimed to have questioned why the United States was would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "sh**hole" countries. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!'
On Friday, Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), who was in the meeting where Trump referred to "shithole countries", said Trump made the "hate-filled, vile, and racist" remarks that have been attributed to him. I have not read one of them that's inaccurate.
A censured president can remain in office-unlike impeachment, or the invocation of the 25th Amendment, both of which would remove the president from the White House and allow the vice president to step in.
"We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically", Perdue and Cotton said.

Known for his TV adaptations of Hannibal and American Gods , Fuller is also a lifelong Anne Rice fan. " Bryan Fuller is working with Anne Rice and [her son] Chris, who are writing the pilot.
And other Trump backers said the president's remarks show he's aligned with a long-standing conservative push to reshape immigration policy into a merit-based system rather than one based on family ties or admitting those from countries beset by poverty.
Instead, because the president of the United States, who seems determined to insult Haitians every chance he gets, said that Haiti - along with "Africa" - is a shithole, I must also lament yet another insult to our dignity.
Francis Suarez, the Cuban-American mayor of Miami, said he grew up surrounded by immigrants from the countries attacked by Trump.
Republican pollster Frank Luntz quoted a report and said that 43 percent of immigrants from African countries have a bachelor's degree or higher, compared with 33 percent of the American population overall.
Hardest hit? The U.S. press, which had fingers crossed that a physical exam could provide the pretext to throw Trump out of the Oval Office.
Trump backtracks again after first denying making 'shithole' comments
Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems. "Our AU Presidents must respond strongly to this insult", Mr. I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States.
Mr. President, so many have tried to take us out before. "If he can dare to do that, I would be proud on that day that our president honored Dr. King by not doing things that are offensive".
Trump later tweeted Friday morning that he "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".
In a statement, the A.U Mission said it condemned the remarks in the strongest terms and wants a retraction of the comments and an apology to not only to the Africans but to all people of African descent around the globe. "I think it fundamentally poisons the relationship with numerous countries".
Overall, Republicans believe they have more time to deal with the deadline for the program for young undocumented immigrants, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, after letting the heat from the president's comments cool off.
Some of the comments were published in a new book about Trump's first year, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by Michael Wolff, which White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has denounced as "complete fantasy" for portraying her 71-year-old boss as undisciplined and in over his head as president. He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.
