Trump calls Haiti, El Salvador, African nations 'shithole countries'

The network added that the president asked, "Why do we want people from Haiti here?"

First, some context. Things had gotten testy in the Oval Office as negotiations over an immigration bill hit the rocks.

The second source familiar with the conversation, said Trump, who has vowed to clamp down on illegal immigration, also questioned the need for Haitians in the United States. According to White House aides, Trump appeared to be on-board with the bipartisan deal earlier this morning, but switched gears during the meeting. In 1989, he called for the five African American and Latino teenagers - the Central Park Five - to be executed for a crime they did not commit.

Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, of Utah, said in response to the vulgar remark, "I look forward to getting a more detailed explanation regarding the President's comments".

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far.

The quote was also reported by the Associated Press and the Washington Post who noted that Trump had met the Norwegian premier on Wednesday, possibly prompting his comment on the country.

Those anonymous second-hand sources claimed that the offending statement came amid a discussion over a proposal to eliminate the diversity visa lottery program and use the 50,000 visas per year tied up in it to offer protection to "vulnerable populations" living in the United States under Temporary Protected Status.

A White House spokesperson defended the comment, saying: "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people". "The White House went on to say Trump wants immigrants who can "contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation".

One White House official stated that Sens.

The President at times suggested he would be looking to sign everything from a stand-alone fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program - set to expire in March - to comprehensive immigration reform, often appearing to being guided by lawmakers in the room to modify his positions.

President Trump called Haiti and Africa "shitholes" during an immigration meeting with lawmakers Thursday, according to a new report. In exchange, Durbin said people would be allowed to stay in the USA who fled here after disasters hit their homes in places including El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti. "We can tiptoe around it, we can dance around it, and not really put our finger on it but the president seems to harbor racist feelings about people of color".

The six senators have been meeting for months to find a way to revive protections for young immigrants who arrived in the U.S.as children and are here illegally. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga., and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Reps. The President of ALL 300 million people - not just the ones who voted for Trump and who might respond well to his "shithole" comments.
