Trump Says He Has a "Wonderful Relationship With Haitians" After "Shithole" Comments

They were discussing reforms to United States immigration policy and the possibility of restoring protections for immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and African countries when Trump reportedly said: "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

He later added, "I thought he misspoke, and, as I said, I think President Trump is not a racist, but I do think he is racially uninformed".

"Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him yesterday", said Graham, who was part of a bipartisan proposal on immigration that Trump rejected at the meeting.

A group of Republican and Democratic senators has been working for months to craft legislation that would protect 700,000 young adults who were brought into the country illegally as children and later shielded from deportation under a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

All African countries at the United Nations unanimously demanded Friday that US President Donald Trump retract and apologize for his reported denunciation of immigration from "shithole" nations.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", said Raj Shah, the Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary without directly referring to Trump's comments.

"Apparently he and I are the only two people that use a few curse words here and there", Scaramucci wrote on Twitter.

The president later tweeted on Friday adding that he never said "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Made up by Dems.

Klepper continued: "I know what you're thinking: What do Norwegians have that Haitians and Africans don't?" Haiti had a little thing called an quake, for example.

The African Group of UN ambassadors said it was "extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks by the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media". The Post included El Salvador on its list.

Trump tweeted a denial, saying he used tough language at the immigration reform meeting, but not 'sh**hole'.

State Department designation of the regime as a country of particular concern under the International Religious Freedom Act. He writes in Foreign Affairs that North Korea's nuclear program is closely tied to the legitimacy of the Kim regime.

U.S. missions went into damage control mode.

Trump's language triggered a barrage of criticism from both Democrats and Republicans.

The Haitian government says in a statement that "these insulting and reprehensible statements in no way reflect the virtues of wisdom, restraint and discernment that must be cultivated by any high political authority".

On Wednesday, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg had visited the White House and was praised by Trump for running a trade deficit with the United States and for buying USA military equipment.

"President Trump's comments are racist and a disgrace".

Akufo-Addo's predecessor, John Dramani Mahama, also criticized Trump's comments in a tweet on Saturday.

Sen. Dick Durbin said he "personally heard" President Trump speak the "hate-filled" words.

In an oddly-timed coincidence, the United States president on Friday signed a declaration honouring slain civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr, three days before the federal holiday celebrated in his honour.

Having had his reaction to Trump's remarks made public by Durbin, Graham felt little need to confirm or deny the reports himself. Trump said, people briefed on the meeting told The Washington Post.

Biden apologized after a 2007 comment where he said of then-Senator Barack Obama: 'I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.
