Exam shows Trump in ´excellent health´: White House

Exam shows Trump in ´excellent health´: White House

In a series of tweets on Friday, Mr Trump also suggested that momentum toward a deal on maintaining such protection had stalled.

The UN human rights office said US President Donald Trump's reported use of an expletive to describe Africa and other countries could "potentially damage and disrupt the lives of many people".

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration, in which United States green-card holders can sponsor other family members for permanent residence in the country.

Paul G. Altidor, Haiti's ambassador to the United States, said Haitian officials "vehemently condemn" Trump's comments, which he said were based on stereotypes.

"No longer can Members of Congress, particularly Republicans, stand with such a risky, disturbed, and deceitful man who is a threat to everything for which America, the greatest democracy on Earth, stands".

He said that Trump and Carson, the lone African-American member of the Cabinet, were talking about the fallout from Thursday's vulgar remarks when Trump turned to him and said, "I am not the person that the media is making me out to be".

The White House initially did not deny that Trump made the remarks, but Trump later disputed the reports on Twitter.

Mr. Trump was reacting on Twitter Friday, after reports that he questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway. More than 50,000 Haitian TPS recipients live in South Florida, which is home to the largest concentration of Haitians in the nation.

As he campaigned for president in 2016, Trump told Haitian-Americans in Miami that they were "amazing people" who add "so much to our country".

When asked about the comments directly, President Trump had no comment.

However, Trump said Friday he's not on board with the proposal - partly because of the wall he wants built along the U.S. -Mexico border. "We should be here remembering our brothers and sisters, but instead we're answering to President Trump".

JB Pritzker, a Democrat running for IL governor, released the following statement Friday: "I've said it before and I'll say it again: Donald Trump is a racist and a xenophobe who has never had the dignity to be in the White House", said JB Pritzker.

No tape is expected to be released as the comment was allegedly made in a private meeting, and it's unclear whether a recording even exists.

Developing countries do have difficulties, but they are not "shithole countries", Duarte said, while calling Trump's remarks as "unfortunate".
