The comments come amid worldwide outage over a Washington Post report that Trump referred to people from Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as coming from "shithole countries" country during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers about US immigration policy on Thursday.

The storm over Trump's alleged language follows a New York Time's story past year about a meeting in which Trump allegedly said Haitian immigrants "all have AIDS". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made". Dick Durbin were among the bipartisan group of senators at the White House with Trump.

The African nation said it had accepted U.S. citizens over the years, including senior government officials, which is "why we view the utterances by the current American President as highly irresponsible, reprehensible, and racist".

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", said a spokesman. "Take them out", Trump also reportedly said. Someone else in the room responded: “Because if you do, it will be obvious why.

House Judiciary Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy have so far not commented on the remarks.


President Trump's alleged comment on acceptance of immigrants from Haiti and "s***hole countries" in Africa is receiving backlash from members of Connecticut's Haitian and religious communities. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". "I can not believe that in the history of White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak (Thursday)".

In a Twitter message Friday, the former president accused Mr Trump of pursuing a policy of making America "White Again" instead of "Great Again". "Probably should record future meeting - unfortunately no trust". Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey and U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern.

"I seen the statement they said the president made about why we keep allowing immigrants to come into our country from sh*thole places like Haiti, Africa, El Salvador, why we can't have immigrants come in from places like Norway". Though the White House flatly denied the report, given Trump's other colorful language to describe non-white foreigners, it certainly seems credible.

"We, along with the President, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades", they added. But in another tweet Friday morning, the president insisted he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians".

Washington this week announced the end of a special protected status for around 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants in the United States, straining ties between the two countries.
