People from s***hole nations unwanted in USA, says Trump

"Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but 'racist, '" said Rupert Colville, spokesman for United Nations rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein.

Trump later denied using the vulgar phrase, but said he used "tough" language at the meeting.

Jean, a refugee from Haiti who came to Canada in 1968 and was raised in Thetford Mines, Que., also noted that Friday was the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster that struck her native country, one of 57 member French-language countries - many from Africa - that form La Francophonie.

But, Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-Louisiana, released a statement saying, "President Trump's comments are yet another confirmation of his racially insensitive and ignorant views".

"The words used by the President, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' " he said, taking issue with the President's tweet.

In Venezuela, the seventh meeting of the Bolivarian Alliance for the People of America (ALBA) reviewed the incident, collectively stating that they considered Trump's racist slur - directed at Latin American and African nations - offensive.

The Trump administration recently announced it would end that status for countries like Haiti and El Salvador, whose citizens came to the US years ago to escape the aftermath of national disasters.

Trump previously told Haitian-Americans: "I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion", while he was campaigning a year ago in Miami's Little Haiti.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

Durbin, a key negotiator in DACA talks, recounted the meeting on MSNBC Friday, saying, "He said, 'Haitians".

Senator Kennedy said responding to the president's remarks and Tweets has become a distraction on Capitol Hill. "Not just once but repeatedly".

DACA protects hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as children from deportation.

"Get on a plane right now and go to this country, that attractive country, handsome people, the most wonderful people, lovely beaches", Jeune said. Trump was quoted by multiple media reports.

"The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards. However, there's a strong argument to be made that calling Trump's remark racist is not an opinion, it is fact - given the dictionary definition of 'racist'".

The AU representative said they were alarmed by Trump's "very racist" comments.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said in a statement. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs. "Get smart, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

On Thursday, Haitian President Jovenel Moise demanded a meeting with the top U.S. diplomat in the country, Charge d'Affaires Robin Diallo, according to State Department officials.
