Donald Trump slams protections for immigrants from 's***hole' countries

Donald Trump didn't hold back when he referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as "shithole countries" during an immigration meeting with lawmakers in the Oval Office on Thursday. Mr. Trump tweeted that he used "tough" language but "not that language".

"I was at the White House talking about what I thought was a bipartisan proposal", Graham said following the meeting.

The White House has not disputed the report.

Trump questioned why the United States would want people from nations such as Haiti while he was being briefed on changes to the visa lottery system. As for Africa, he asked why more people from "s-thole countries" should be allowed into the US, the sources said.

The people say Trump questioned why the USA would want to admit more people from "shithole countries". He had met Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg earlier this week.

Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, compared Mr Trump's comments to Nazism.

The president who as candidate promised to build a wall with Mexico and branded Mexicans as 'rapists, ' has introduced several travel bans on immigrants from certain Muslim-majority countries, orders that have been checked by the courts so far.

"He will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway".

Carlson said the characterization of Haiti being a disheveled country was true, and called out MSNBC for playing the race card.

Proof lies in the fact that the White House did not react to Trump's "shithole" comments with panic or any sense that he had detonated a damaging gaffe that could cause him lasting political damage.

Representative Steny Hoyer of Maryland, a senior Democratic lawmaker, said that Trump's comments were "racist and a disgrace". But it wasn't just Democrats objecting.

"This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation", said Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah), whose parents came to America from Haiti.

Carlson echoed those sentiments when he described Trump's comment as "something that nearly every single person in America actually agrees with".

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the conversation.

The comments, first reported by The Washington Post, sparked anger among Democrats, and revived questions about Trump's tendency to make racially charged remarks.

The Trump administration announced late previous year that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 citizens from Haiti to live and work in the United States following a devastating 2010 quake. Cory Booker, D-N.J., added that Trump "does not speak for America".

However, critics of the president, including some in his own Republican Party, spent Friday blasting the vulgar comments he made behind closed doors.

The agreement among senators came as more than 100 corporate CEOs urged Congress to "act immediately and pass a permanent bipartisan legislative solution to enable Dreamers who are now living, working, and contributing to our communities to continue doing so". But she added, "We haven't quite gotten there, but we feel like we're close". He also encouraged others to call their Republican members of Congress if they are also upset. "White people in other words".

On his show later, Noah joked that African countries will hear about the news in "a few weeks" but "as soon as the news donkey reaches our village, we'll be so mad".

The six senators have been meeting for months to find a way to revive protections for the "Dreamers".
