Two Republican senators said they did not remember President Donald Trump referring to Haiti and African nations with a vulgar comment, according to a statement they released on Twitter.

"We do not recall the president saying those comments specifically, but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest. We, along with the president, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades," said Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga., in the statement.

Trump on Thursday, during a meeting about immigration, questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and other nations rather than places like Norway, and allegedly made a vulgar comment that described the African nations.

However, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who attended the meeting, said Trump "repeatedly" made "hate-filled, vile and racist" comments.

The president denied making the vulgar comment.
