The Senator from South Carolina was one of the several lawmakers in the room during the Oval Office meeting at the White House Thursday.
President Trump allegedly grew frustrated at a proposed bipartisan immigration plan that would scale back the visa lottery program, but not eliminate it, asking those in the room why they would want people from Haiti, Africa and other “s—hole countries” coming into the United States, according to multiple sources either briefed on or familiar with the discussion.
