President Trump asked in an Oval Office meeting why America wanted ‘these people from shithole countries

He later took to Twitter to deny that he had used the phrase.

The storm over Trump's alleged language follows a New York Time's story previous year about a meeting in which Trump allegedly said Haitian immigrants "all have AIDS". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" - referring to his remarks.

Trump said, according to the newspaper, which cited "several people briefed on the meeting". Explaining President Trump's remarks "would be a tough conversation to have with them", he said.

The Rev. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas says that, apart from the reported choice of words, "Trump is right on target in his policy".

Republican Senator Tom Cotton and Republican Representative Bob Goodlatte were both there, as was White House aide Stephen Miller, a proponent of severely limiting immigration. "He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said on Friday.

President Donald Trump's dismissal of Haiti and certain African countries with a vulgar expression has created a furor.

Networks are grappling with a real dilemma on how to report what the president's use of the swear word. They don't blink. They stand tall and they have dignity.

"The programme that was being discussed at the White House meeting is called Temporary Protection Status".

The African Union (AU), an organisation which promotes cooperation on the continent, said it was alarmed by Trump's "very racist" comments. "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate". Since they are receiving American aid, they were slow to criticize the president's comment. He said Foreign Affairs Minister Antonio Rodrigue told him the USA chargé d'affaires in Haiti had been summoned to explain the reported comments.

"The ambassadors and the charges will note what an honor it is to be in their posts and how much we value our relationship with the people of the nation where they represent us". "So if you look at a lot of Africans, whether they are Ethiopian, South African or Nigerian, many of them are doctors, they are nurses, they are dentists or what have you".

"It makes it harder because members of Congress become less likely to believe a deal is actually possible", Rep. Joaquin Castro told BuzzFeed News on Friday.

"It shows a lack of respect and ignorance never seen before in the recent history of the United States by any President", Mr Lamothe tweeted. Ryan asked. "Mr. President, will you respond to these serious questions about your statement, sir?" She said "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation". "My parents came from one of those countries but proudly took an oath of allegiance to the United States and took on the responsibilities of everything that being a citizen comes with".

Djenane Gourgue, of the Haitian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida, says she is not letting Trump's remarks affect her anymore, adding "his actions can probably hurt more".

"We are a working people, dignified, optimistic, and proud of our history; we fight daily to build our future and we do it cheerfully", the FMLN said.
