"Trump offered a vague denial in a tweet on Friday, and not until Cotton and Perdue spoke on Sunday did another participant challenge whether Trump had used the word "sh**hole", the Post reported. Durbin said the remarks were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

The United States charges de affaires in South Africa will be called to explain President Donald Trump's statement apparently denigrating African and other countries, the global relations and co-operation department (Dirco) said on Sunday.

I was raised not to call people racist on the theory that it was hard for them to be rehabilitated once you said that. However, one of the Republican Senators who attended the meeting today claimed that Trump never used that word.

"Did you see what various senators in the room said about my comments?" he asked.

"DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it", Trump tweeted, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program at the heart of the immigration impasse.

Trump has falsely claimed that other countries use the diversity visa lottery to send their "worst people" to the U.S.

"Let's honour Dr King's birthday by showing the world the progress being made to help achieve his dream", Famod Konneh, Bronx Borough Director, New York City Office of the Mayor, said. "I think that they were unfortunate". We have great talks going on.

"And [Trump's] a little bit of it, but both sides now are destroying the setting in which anything meaningful can happen on immigration", Paul said.

Trump's alleged comments caused shock internationally and incurred allegations of racism, with the United Nations, the African Union and many individual African governments denouncing it.

Mr Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who had fled to the U.S. after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people.

Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question.

"When he tweets it's out of his mouth, and sometimes it might not be clear, but at least it is exactly what he thinks", she said.

"The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it". Durbin told reporters in Chicago.

According to the embassy, the commitment of United States to African countries would continue to remain stronger. "I don't know in which context they were made".

Trump also denied saying "anything derogatory" about Haitians. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately no trust".

The government of Botswana issued a statement on Friday, condemning the remarks, calling them "irresponsible, reprehensible and racist", and urging other nations to take a stand against Trump's remarks. Day, which is Monday.

Senator David Purdue, a Republican from Georgia, called charges that Trump is racist "ridiculous" and his reported remarks a "gross misrepresentation" of the White House meeting on immigration.
