Everything President Trump has tweeted (and what it was about) Orlando's Haitian community reacts to Trump remark

Trump reportedly said, before suggesting that the US bring in more immigrants from countries like Norway. Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question. "Do we need more Haitians?"

Here's what five of the lawmakers who attended the meeting said afterward about the controversy.

African anger about Trump's comments, made during a White House meeting on immigration, could impact USA companies doing business in one of the world's fastest growing regions and complicate the Pentagon's counterterrorism efforts and security cooperation on the continent, diplomats and analysts said.

In their statement, the African ambassadors said they were concerned "about the continuing and growing trend from the United States administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color".

Farris Jr. participated in a White House event honoring his uncle on Friday and told CNN that Trump addressed the issue while in the Oval Office with Vice President Mike Pence and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson before the ceremony.

But Senator Dick Durbin, the only Democrat in the room, disputed the president's account.

Speaking slowly, Murray's Bannon referred to himself as a "kingmaker". "It's time for America to slide down the Bannonster". Asking Armisen's Wolff about something shocking about Donald Trump , he cited the "baby races". "There were baby races.

Some Republicans, notably Rep. Mia Love (R-UT), who's of Haitian descent, have called out the president for the comments and have requested an apology. "That was the nature of this conversation". If my job is to report the truth, the truth is, what the president said was hurtful.

However, Republican Sen. Tim Scott, the junior senator from SC, told the Charleston Post and Courier that Graham told him the reported comments are "basically accurate". "[The border wall] was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and US would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine Tweeted Friday: 'These comments are highly inappropriate & out of bounds and could hurt efforts for a bipartisan immigration agreement. Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of "Make America White Again"? We also, as a government, as a people, to open our arms.

Democrats have made clear they would not consider some of the suggestions and the demands risk exacerbating already tense talks as both sides are entrenched in negotiating position. "Hope for Haiti fundamentally rejects the statements that were made".

Trump's agreement has always been essential to any immigration deal. Sen. And more than that, it white-washes Dr. King.
