Cable News Weighs

"In the course of his comments, President Trump said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist", Durbin said Friday in a statement his office provided to the newspaper. Kwame Raoul, whose Haitian parents immigrated to the U.S.in the 1950s.

According to The Washington Post, during an Oval Office meeting on Thursday with USA senators to discuss the status of some immigrants in the country, President Trump described Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African countries as "shitholes".

"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 USA citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment. Trump questioned why the USA should accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa over places like Norway.

Ghana is widely seen as a stable, peaceful country in an often turbulent region, and has close ties to the United States.

'Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday, ' Graham said in a statement.

Trump on Friday denied describing certain nations as "shithole countries" after triggering global outrage.

After Trump was asked at Thursday's White House meeting if the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa, the president reportedly questioned why people from "expletive-hole countries" are coming to America.

"I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency", Baltimore Rep. Elijah E. Cummings said in a tweet.

"I have heard several different variations of what exactly was said".

Although the president denied making any derogatory comments, most in the Haitian community are not buying it.

On Friday, Trump denied using the language, about Haiti, and tried to turn the conversation to Democrats.

"Mr. Trump spits on the assassination of this black American icon, as well as on a whole generation of young people, black and white, who gave their lives in the civil rights movement", he said.

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

"Every one of you politicians in Washington need to be protecting your fellow Americans", Mary Anne Mendoza said on "The Story" on Friday night.

The president made the remarks on Thursday during a White House meeting with lawmakers and suggested immigrants from Norway would be preferable.

"It just took the breath out of me", Saitinor Philius said. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Senegal's foreign ministry also called in the US ambassador in Dakar to demonstrate its displeasure, a US State Department official said. Eventually, he said, they opened a farm in Wisconsin after they raised enough money.

"I don't think that he will acknowledge that he said it, let alone apologize for it", Doron said.

"He is the president of the United States".

Trump did not publicly address the controversy during the ceremony and ignored repeated questions about it from reporters in the room. "They diminish America's standing in the world and should be denounced by every member of Congress", she said on Twitter.
