11218_Trump_Norway Donald Trump: Shock over US president's migrants remarks
Kenny Thornton | 13 January, 2018, 12:12

On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert also commented on the president's remarks, with the vulgarity bleeped out: "Trump reportedly said, 'Why are we having all these people from. countries come here?' Sir, they're not. countries: For one, Donald Trump isn't their president".

The president did take to Twitter at 7:28 a.m. Friday, denying using the reported language.

Trump reportedly made the remarks at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday and a U.S. senator who attended the gathering said on Friday that the president used "vile, vulgar" language, including repeatedly using the word "shithole". Since they are receiving American aid, they were slow to criticize the president's comment.

The group's mission in Washington DC expressed its "shock, dismay and outrage" and said the Trump administration misunderstood Africans. "We're better than this", Biden tweeted on Friday.

Kinzinger said divisive language detracts from common goals and the task at hand.

"We are living in trying times, brother", said Upkolo.

"The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it". Obviously, our hope is that we can focus on finding a solution to this issue.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", he said.

Mr Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians? Do we need more Haitians?"

Liberal MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes, a parliamentary secretary to the minister of worldwide development, did respond to reports of Trump's comments on Thursday evening.

"Haitians don't deserve such treatment", said Ambassador Paul Altidor.

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of U.S. citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

Trump Responses To "Sh*thole" Remarks
Trump said on Twitter Friday that his language during the meeting was "tough", but "this was not the language used". Asked how Trump's comments will affect immigration talks, Ryan responded, "We have to get it done".

Mathilde Wilson and her family moved to Portland four years ago, and she never thought she'd hear the president say what he is accused of saying about Haiti. "Made up by Dems". "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future. The statement also noted that the president wanted immigrants who "contribute" and can "assimilate". He was taken aback by remarks attributed to President Trump, referring to some immigrant nations as "sh**hole" countries.

Durbin, who was in the meeting with the president when he made the remarks, said Mr. Trump's denial, "It's not true".

When asked what Trump had said in the meeting, Durbin said, "I can not believe that in the history of the White House and of that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday".

Durbin said Graham immediately objected to the president's comments. And I made my own comments in response to it.

In a tweet Friday morning, Trump suggested that he did not use the insulting term. I support the President's push for merit based immigration as well as resolving the DACA situation once and for all. It's not how a president should behave. Day, which is Monday.

While Graham's statement didn't confirm or deny Trump making those comments, Sen.

"Trump rejected the deal, putting the issue back into uncertainty eight days before a deadline that threatens a government shutdown". According to those briefed on the conversation, the president used the phrase * a href="http://abc7chicago.com/politics/trump-why-allow-immigrants-from-s***hole-countries/2930875/" *"s***hole countries" while questioning why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and nations in Africa, rather than places like Norway.

The U.S. granted temporary protected status (TPS) to Haitians after the quake.

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the conversation.

U.S. President Donald Trump (right) listens as U.S. Senator Dick Durbin speaks during a bipartisan meeting with legislators on immigration reform at the White House in Washington on January 9, 2018.

Ah, so it's not that Trump is opposed to all immigration, just immigration from people who aren't white.
