None of the Republican lawmakers who were at the meeting have backed up Trump's denials.
Fellow Illinois Democrat Rep. Luis Gutierrez blasted Trump in an interview Thursday, calling Trump's remarks "vile" and "racist."
"We now know that we have in the White House someone who could lead the Ku Klux Klan in the United States of America, somebody who could be the leader of the neo-Nazis — and publish just his words," he said on MSNBC.
