President Donald Trump on Thursday questioned why people from "shithole countries" - Haiti, El Salvador and African nations - come to the United States, unnamed sources briefed on the meeting said.

- Rep. Tim Walz (@RepTimWalz) January 11, 2018Trump allegedly made the remark during an Oval Office meeting with lawmaker on immigration policy.

Trump sat down with senators and congressmen at the White House to discuss a proposed bipartisan deal that would limit immigrants from bringing family members into the country and restrict the green card visa lottery in exchange for shielding hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation. Trump reportedly said, suggesting suggested the USA could benefit more from immigration from countries such as Norway. As Durbin listed the countries that would benefit, Trump questioned why they should benefit. Trump asked, saying the US should bring in more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister visited the White House on Wednesday, according to The Washington Post.

While cruder and blunter than his past public statements, the president's comments were in keeping with his long-standing position that the US should shift its immigration policy away from poorer, developing countries, and instead focus on carefully selecting educated immigrants, especially from Europe, who can already speak English and have professional or technical skills needed in the U.S.

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

The Washington Post reported Mr Trump became frustrated after politicians floated reinstating protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan deal.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday "There has not been a deal reached yet".

Last year, Trump scrapped the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme that protected the immigrants, and set a deadline of March 5 for Congress to legislate a fix. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) at the meeting.

After the meeting, Durbin told reporters, "I'm not sure what the next step will be".

The comments alarmed and mystified the people attending the meeting. The group agreed to also include provisions strengthening security - which for Trump means building parts of a wall along the border with Mexico - curbing immigrants' relatives from coming here and restricting the visa lottery. "I don't get that", said No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas.

There had been reports earlier Thursday that the bipartisan "Gang of Six" group of senators had reached a compromise on immigration.

Among Republicans, some conservatives are insisting on going further than the steps that Trump has suggested.
