However, Democratic Whip and IL senator, Dick Durbin, was in the room during the meeting and confirmed the report.

Mr Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?"

Jeffress is an informal advisor to Trump and has visited the White House. "After unilaterally moving to end DACA and upend the lives of 800,000 young immigrants, including more than 41,000 in Illinois, Trump is resorting to offensive tactics to score a political win with his base".

In the years that followed, Trump has shared other tweets about the connections between race and crime, including a notable tweet he retweeted in November 2015 that included a picture of false statistics about the percentage of "blacks killed by blacks" and "whites killed by blacks".
