BEND, OR -- Congressman Greg Walden (R-OR) was in Bend Friday, touring Deschutes Brewery and discussing how the Republican tax reform bill will benefit the craft brew industry. During the visit, Walden was asked about recent remarks reportedly made by the President during an immigration meeting, when he allegedly used a derogatory term to refer to African countries. The Oregon Republican was quick to denounce the term used by President Trump as “Offensive and Unnecessary.” 

 
He told reporters, "I think we all have to be careful about the words we choose. I know Nancy Pelosi got in trouble the other day for saying it was, ’just four white guys sitting around talking about immigration reform.’  And Steny Hoyer, the Democratic Whip of the House, was very offended by that." Walden added, "I think we all have to be careful about the words we choose. I know Nancy Pelosi got in trouble the other day for saying it was, ’just four white guys sitting around talking about immigration reform.’  And Steny Hoyer, the Democratic Whip of the House, was very offended by that."
 
While several lawmakers in Thursday’s immigration meeting confirmed President Trump used the derogatory term, he has denied it.
