Trump calls Haiti, El Salvador, African nations 'shithole countries' in immigration discussion

"And given that so many Africans arrived in the USA as slaves, it is surprising from the leader of the United States to speak like this".

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said.

Trump said that the United States should accept more immigrants from countries like Norway, the reports said.

Some people used handsome photos of Haiti and parts of Africa to challenge Trump's position whiles others through their comments sought to educate the USA president.

U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-South Boston, said Trump "should be ashamed of his comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African nations".

"I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level", Trump said in another tweet.

Media reports stated that Trump questioned why the US admits people from 'shitholes'.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", Shah said.

In a series of tweets Friday, Trump said he used "tough" language but that he "never said anything derogatory" about Haitians. And it's not like during the campaign you didn't tell a group of Haitian-Americans, "I really want to be your biggest champion".

Trump's description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist.

According to reports Trump expressed frustration behind closed doors with people coming to the United States from places such as Africa and Haiti. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he said. Trump's latest racist comments came just after his administration announced it is ending temporary protected status for up to 250,000 Salvadorans who have been living in the US since at least 2001. "The exact word used by the President".

"USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly", Trump tweeted. "Bigotry should have no place at the White House".

Richmond said in a statement: "President Trump's comments are yet another confirmation of his racially insensitive and ignorant views".

The president is now denying he used a vulgar term to describe third-world countries, during a meeting at the oval office Thursday.
