Trump reportedly made the remarks at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday and a USA senator who attended the gathering said on Friday that the president used "vile, vulgar" language, including repeatedly using the word "shithole".

US President Donald Trump, who underwent his first physical examination since taking office, is in excellent health, his physician said on Saturday.

Republican Sens. David Perdue and Tom Cotton say they "don't recall" President Trump "specifically" smearing Haiti and African nations as "shitholes" at an Oval Office meeting they attended Thursday.

Mr Trump on Friday tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been "tough". Or, "Trump, a racist, met with leaders of Congress..."

An emotional Sunny Hostin on "The View" Friday, noting that her husband's family is from Haiti, said she's always resisted labeling Trump because she couldn't look into his heart.

While those missions won't stop, "if people fundamentally don't trust you and like you, it's going to change the tone of the relationship", Lewis said.

He said it was a necessary change, even though the United States had been linked to Grosvenor Square for more than 200 years.

"He said 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

El Salvador's foreign minister said a formal protest had been made over the comments attributed to Trump.

People from 'shithole countries' share their accomplishments to prove Trump wrong
Graham, Durbin said, stood up and "made a direct comment on what the president said", telling the president his own family story. Trump seems to be defending himself against the furor over his vulgar words to describe African countries.

The White House has also led a almost yearlong campaign to reduce the number of refugees allowed into the United States, as part of broader immigration restriction efforts.

Trump specifically questioned why the US would want to admit more people from Haiti, according to Durbin.

President Donald Trump offered a partial denial in public but privately defended his extraordinary remarks disparaging Haitians and African countries.

"We, along with the president, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades", the statement said.

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

"To (our) partners in the global community, I want to take advantage of this day to tell you all that under my leadership the country wants to take its destiny in its own hands, as I said in parliament", he added.

After reports emerged that the president used the discriminatory, crass language to express his distaste for offering protections to Haitian and El Saldavorian immigrants (as well as immigrants from certain African countries), he faced widespread backlash. Some of them are his friends, and I can hear them now, telling me: 'Donald didn't mean that, ' 'Donald isn't a racist, ' 'I think it was taken out of context.'. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Durbin, of IL, somberly countered Trump's version of events.

The state's top nation as a source of immigration is India. Trump ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program a year ago but has given Congress until March 5 to find a way to keep it alive. He also claimed there were "very fine people on both sides" after violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, left one counter-protester dead.
