President Trump is denying reports that he disparaged African nations and questioned the U.S. allowing immigrants from countries like Haiti. But in the halls of Congress on Friday, Senate Democrat Dick Durbin said he was in the Thursday meeting where Trump angrily rejected a bipartisan deal on immigration.

NBC and Telemundo news anchor José Díaz-Balart (@jdbalart) and Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) of Fox News join Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd and Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss the week in politics.

Editor's Note: NPR has decided in this case to include the vulgar word that the president reportedly used because it meets our standard for use of offensive language. It is "absolutely integral to the meaning and spirit of the story being told."

This segment aired on January 12, 2018.
