Did Botswana Condemn Trump's Alleged 'Shithole' Slur Toward African Countries?

He has been backed by two Republicans who were at the White House meeting, but Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said Mr Trump called African countries "shitholes" several times and used "racist" language.

African UN ambassadors and the African Union have called for "a retraction and an apology" from Donald Trump after the U.S. president reportedly described them as "s***hole" countries.

Jacquet is among the Southwest Florida Haitian immigrants shocked at what the president said.

Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House and after Trump and Mike Pence, the third-most powerful Republican. rebuked the president for the words calling them "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

In a series of tweets Friday, Trump said he used "tough" language but that he "never said anything derogatory" about Haitians. He called a proposal made at the immigration meeting "a big setback for DACA". The African Union said it was "frankly alarmed" and the United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said the comments, "I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist".

Reports of President Trump's statements during an Oval Office meeting on Thursday were met with quick reactions worldwide. Trump, however, did not deny accounts from multiple sources either briefed on or familiar with the discussion who told ABC News the president's comments extended to African countries as well.

"We have to reform our immigration system, make it more diversified where people from Asia and Europe can come to this country and make it merit-based so if you have a skill you can benefit America", McDonough said.

Americans deserve to know beyond any doubt exactly how our nation's leader described countries that are home to almost 1.3 billion people. "The president of the United States is racist", the journalist told viewers.

Graham released a statement saying that he "said [his] piece directly" to Trump, but not addressing whether the president had insulted any countries.

Donald Trump has denied using vulgar language during a private meeting with lawmakers as he faced a global backlash over his comments about immigrants. I've not read one of them that's inaccurate. "In the course of (Trump's) comments, he said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist. l use those words advisingly, I understand how powerful they are".

When Mr Trump heard Haitians were among those to benefit from the proposed deal, he allegedly asked whether they could be left out of the plan, asking, "Why do we want people from Haiti here?" We've been a good friend of the people of the United States. "America deserves better, and when I'm governor, I'll protect immigrant families and make IL a welcoming state for all".
