Trump's political allies have been through this dance before, grappling with how to position themselves after a president whose supporters they covet stakes out controversial positions. The White House did not deny his remark but issued a statement saying Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".
"Apparently he and I are the only two people that use a few curse words here and there", Scaramucci wrote on Twitter.
"President Trump's shameful and racist remarks on foreign countries have confirmed, yet again, his blatant and willful embrace of the xenophobic, hate-mongering, and ignorant principles that go against our American values". "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards", he said.

Trump tweeted Friday that was not the "language used" and denied saying 'anything derogatory about Haitians'.
Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt had earlier tweeted that, judging by Solberg's visit, "keys to success with Trump are personal charm, a solid trade deficit with the USA and buying tons of United States military hardware". Perhaps the least racist.
The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the conversation.
