"It was a meeting of 12 people".
Republican Senator Lindsay Graham did release a statement saying he confronted Mr Trump about his disparaging remarks, although he did not explicitly confirm the president used "s***hole".
The pair went back and forth about the meeting, with Durbin asking Nielsen how she remembered each interaction going.
"Your silence and your amnesia is complicity", Booker told her as she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday.
The report comes on the heels of recent terror-related offenses allegedly committed by those born overseas who had legally immigrated to the USA, according to The Daily Caller. Graham also said, in words directed to Trump, "close this deal". "I'm not here to get in front of the President or any final decisions on that particular issue, but, yes, I'm happy to discuss it".
The White House said Trump had no intention of apologizing.

There is internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse." Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) contacted him to recount what he heard Trump say in the meeting.
A confidant of Trump told The Associated Press that the president spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction to his remarks.
Responding to Democrats' assertions that Trump's comments were "racist", Sanders calls the claim "outrageous", citing their previous embrace of Trump. This could be other White House officials, members of Congress or persons outside of government.
In a hearing Tuesday, Graham said Trump expressed openness to an immigration deal, only to reject it hours later.
If I really do recall what was said, will I be contradicted by other reliable evidence? Jeff Flake of Arizona and Tim Scott of SC. Dick Durbin has asserted that Trump did, truth be told, utilize disgusting dialect to allude to Haiti and different nations, and Sen. "What I understood [President Trump] to say was: let's move away from the countries and let's look at the individual, and make sure those we bring here can contribute to our society", Nielsen also said. "And by the time we got there, something had happened". "It's fair to say the president reacted strongly to that". "We have a lot of agreements with them to increase border security", she said.
