On Thursday, Trump was meeting lawmakers to discuss a proposal for an immigration plan when he reportedly grew agitated as the conversation turned to citizens of Haiti and El Salvador, and immigrants from the African continent.

Fleischer, Fox News contributor and former White House press secretary under President George W. Bush, said on "Outnumbered Overtime" that Trump's blunt, politically incorrect talk has helped shake up Washington, D.C., but it's not always helpful to diplomacy and getting agreements done. The president insisted on Twitter Friday that he didn't use that language.

Mr Durbin said that when Mr Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the president responded: "Haitians?"

Trump's alleged comments were met with condemnation from the United Nations. Mr. Trump reportedly said.

"They have not often had the government the people deserve, but that does not make them the country the president described", Clinton wrote. He added that he never said anything derogatory about Haitians. "Why do we want people from Haiti here?"

"These are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States", U.N. spokesman Rupert Colville said.


Trump on Thursday rejected a pitch from a bipartisan team of senators on a compromise immigration deal to protect DACA participants while increasing border security.

He said the president repeatedly used the word "sh**hole" when speaking about African countries.

If Trump can use his vile brand of "tough language" about entire nations of people, he should be willing to listen when somebody throws words like "racist" and "ignorant" right back at him, right? "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", Graham said in a statement. "Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime. countries which are doing badly".

Haitians were granted Temporary Protected Status following the 2010 quake, which seven years ago today killed 300,000 Haitians and left thousands of others displaced.

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of U.S. citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.
