After President Donald Trump reportedly referred to African countries that benefit from the US visa lottery program as "shitholes", House Speaker Paul Ryan lightly rebuked the president on Friday, calling the comments "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

He then said their story of overcoming that oppression was "a handsome story of America".

"I thought about my own family".

"I read those comments later last night, so, first thing that came to my mind was very unfortunate, unhelpful", said Ryan.

"I thought about my own family", he said, describing his Irish immigrant relatives who came to the USA on what he said were called "coffin ships" and began working the railroads.

Bipartisan negotiations hit a snag after President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected an agreement reached by a group of six senators. After The Washington Post first reported Mr. Trump's remarks, later confirmed by CBS News' Nancy Cordes, the White House did not deny the comment in a statement.

A day after reports President Trump used an insulting term to describe Haiti and African countries - the Speaker of the House offers his response in Milwaukee.

Almost 800,000 people who came to the USA illegally as children were protected under the Obama administration, but Trump will scrap the so-called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on March 5 unless Congress legislates a fix.

Ryan - who has long advocated for major changes to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security - said they are going to need to work across the aisle on any significant changes to the programs as Republicans don't have a supermajority in Senate.

Democratic leaders say they want an immigration deal to be attached to a broader budget package.

"No, I don't there there will be", he said.
