Republican senators in Trump meeting say they don't recall 'shithole' comment

"I find President Trump's reported comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries unacceptable and inaccurate", Siplin said.

The questions came Friday in the White House when Trump signed a proclamation honoring Martin Luther King Jr. "Get smart, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

Joe Biden, ex-US vice president, said: "It's not how a president should speak". He did so after Mr. Trump tweeted a denial, saying that he used "tough" language but "not that language".

The U.S. granted temporary protected status (TPS) to Haitians after the natural disaster. Jeffress says Trump has courage and deserved gratitude for his leadership. So, in light of what's happened, we're not here to simply condemn the statement.

Durbin told reporters on Friday that throughout the president's remarks, Trump said "things which were hate-filled, vile and racist". While Graham was making the pitch, the president interrupted several times with questions, Durbin said. The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel. Former VP Joe Biden also had choice words about Trump's language, tweeting, "It's not what a president should believe". So we're inviting him back to come and discover some of those the communities where Haitians live. Trump allegedly questioned why the USA doesn't admit more immigrants from countries like Norway, whose prime minister visited the White House this week.

Trump's reported comments were also taken personally by Dr. Andrew Furey, an orthopedic surgeon in St. John's, N.L., and founder of Team Broken Earth, a group of medical professionals who responded to the Haitian quake in 2010 and has since returned to the country several times.

Flake said Thursday's comments reflect what Trump has reportedly said in the past about Haiti and Nigeria.

Those who work at and visit the restaurant say they love their country, and they love America, but they are concerned about the rhetoric coming out of Washington, D.C.

The White House has not denied the language used at the Thursday meeting on immigration.

People briefed on the meeting said that a potential deal had been reached between Republicans and Democrats present at the meeting.

Others condemned the USA president's comments as inappropriate or racist.

"Language like that shouldn't be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn't be heard in the White House", she said.

The government of Botswana asked the U.S. government to clarify if Botswana was regarded as a "shithole country" and called his comments "irresponsible, reprehensible and racist". What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!'

Trump seems to be defending himself against the furor over his vulgar words to describe African countries.

Jacques immigrated to Jacksonville in 2009 and now helps other immigrants from his home country. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs".

Trump's derogatory remarks cited by the Washington Post and New York Times were in reference to African countries and Haiti.

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

Its government summoned the U.S. ambassador, seeking to clarify whether the USA regards Botswana as a "shithole" country. In 2016, Fasano was among those calling out then-candidate Trump for his disparaging comments about the parents of a Muslim American soldier killed in Iraq.

Controversy is swirling about claims that President Donald Trump made a vulgar comment about struggling countries and their immigrants.
