Trump denies saying US should block migrants from 'sh--hole' countries

U.S. President Donald Trump boards Air Force One upon departure from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland Trump denies saying US should block migrants from 'sh--hole' countries

"They have not often had the government the people deserve, but that does not make them the country the president described", Clinton wrote.

According to two sources, at Thursday's meeting the president questioned why the United States would want to accept immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as "sh**hole countries". Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

Globally, at least two American envoys overseas - in Haiti and Botswana - were summoned to explain the president's remarks.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, confirmed the remarks, saying Trump "said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly". "I can say the same about other nations in Central America and Africa swept up in his epithet".

More and more countries and organizations are joining the global chorus of condemnation of President Trump's racially-charged comments while speaking to lawmakers in the Oval Office on Thursday.

Forgive my language, as it is a direct quote, but please don't forgive the president. It is not true.

Haitians and Africans in Maryland say they don't think they should be written off.

Rep. Mia Love, R-UT, herself a daughter of Haitian immigrants, issued a statement asking for the president to apologize for his "unkind, divisive and elitist" language. "The largest group's El Salvadoran, the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian". I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

Trump suggested the U.S. should instead focus its immigrant entry policy on countries such as Norway. "That was the nature of this conversation".

The organization said in a statement: "There is a huge misunderstanding of the African continent and its people by the current Administration".

This is not the first time Trump has sought to blame Democrats for the thorny debate over the immigration program, tweeting earlier this month that they were "doing nothing". "It was a heartbreaking moment", Durbin said.

Just one day after referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "s**thole countries" President Donald Trump hosted an event on Friday in honor of the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. In exchange for a compromise on the Daca programme, Mr Trump is demanding funding for his Mexican border wall.
