"I spoke with President Jovenel Moise about the issue, and, of course, the president condemns such language and he is shocked", Altidor remarked, adding that the United States charge d'affaires in Haiti had been summoned to explain the U.S. president's remarks.

"I would focus on lifestyle modifications, diet changes and exercise", she said.

President Donald Trump's White House physician declared him in "excellent health" after the president received his first medical checkup at Walter Reed military hospital on Friday, undergoing a physical examination amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he's mentally unfit. Some of the lawmakers had advocated restoring protections for immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti, and African countries, according to the Post, when Trump made the remark.

Caribbean legislators on Friday joined the avalanche of deep outrage over United States President Donald J. Trump's reported racist remarks about nationals from Haiti, Africa and El Salvador.

Trump tweeted Friday that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians" and praised his relationship with people from the country.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the USA after disasters in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the discussion.

The church says they have been working with refugees in Haiti since the island was struck by a 7.0 magnitude natural disaster that killed more than 220,000 people in 2010.

In Little Haiti, the President's remarks became a part of what's usually a solemn event.


"The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Jackson said in a brief statement distributed by the White House. It leaves me offended.

Trump issued a statement on Friday denying the vulgar words attributed to him, though he admitted to having used strong language in the Thursday discussion. "Equally important, without this evaluation, the American people will not have a clear understanding about the health and well-being of the President, which is essential for Americans to know of any president".

Norwegians were firm but polite as they went on social media to point out they preferred to stay in one of the richest countries in the world as calculated by GDP per capita, rather than move to the United States. "I will give them better".

Durbin and Graham pitched Trump on the outlines of a deal they and others in a six-senator bipartisan group made to resolve the legal status of Dreamers, the young undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S.as children.

South Africa's best known morning-news anchor, Leanne Manas, tweeted, "Good morning from the greatest most lovely "shithole country" in the world!' Elsewhere on Twitter, many Africans posted landscape pictures testifying to the true identity of their nations".

Trump has said he gets most of his exercise playing golf. "The task of recognizing changes in memory, thinking and other cognitive functions and distinguishing whether such symptoms are due to normal aging or are signs of early dementia is not an easy one", she said.

The president suggested the U.S. should instead allow more entrants from countries like Norway. "Haiti is a proud nation". "That Trump's comments were made public on the evening prior to the anniversary of an quake that devastated the nation of Haiti makes them all the more disgusting, unfeeling and inhumane".
