Trump says his words on immigration were misrepresented by ‘Senator Dicky Durbin’

President Donald Trump lashed out at Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin on Monday, taking to Twitter to say Illinois’ senior senator “totally misrepresented what was said” at a meeting on immigration during which Trump was accused of using vulgar language to describe certain countries.

Trump said in his tweet that Durbin “blew” efforts to reach a deal on immigration, including addressing the fate of those who came to the U.S. illegally as children under a policy known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

“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 said in the tweet posted Monday afternoon.
