Botswana asks USA for official answer: Are we a 'shithole' country?

The president later tweeted on Friday adding that he never said "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

"This is like throwing gasoline to the fire", Representative Adriano Espaillat, a New York Democrat, said of Trump's reported language.

Reports earlier quoted Trump, in an Oval Office meeting on Thursday, as asking why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s**thole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said a bipartisan Senate immigration plan would force the United States to admit people from "high crime" countries "doing badly", and denied using a vulgar reference in comments decried as racist.

The remarks, which where confirmed by Sen.

But Trump and his advisers notably did not dispute the most controversial of his remarks: using the word "shithole" to describe African nations and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

"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 USA citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Pope Francis meet at the Vatican, May 24, 2017. Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "He said blatantly what many of us know that he believes because he has said too many times to be mistaken: that immigrants from Africa, the continent of Africa, and from Haiti, are not welcome because of their color and their place of origin, to the United States".

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., criticized Trump's remarks during an event Friday in Milwaukee, pointing to his own Irish ancestors' migration to America.

"Why are we having all these people from s**thole countries come here?" Pugh called upon all elected leaders, regardless of party, to condemn the president's comments.

"As Senator [Lindsey] Graham [of South Carolina] made his presentation, the president interrupted him several times with questions and in the course of his comments said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist".

Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-Garden City) summed up her opinion with one tweeted word: "Racist". "Why are we even talking about locker-room comments from 11 years ago when there are so many important issues at hand?" asked Minnesota state Sen.

Yesterday Senator Durbin and I met with President Trump at the White House to discuss our bipartisan proposal on border security and immigration.

"We're not going to take it from Mr. Trump". Decades after Wilson left office, President Richard Nixon made inflammatory comments about blacks, Jews and others in private discussions, including saying, "Do you know maybe one black country that's well run?"

Warnock said it's hypocritical for Trump to sign a proclamation honoring King, given his comments. There is a lot of trite rambling about how the president isn't really reflecting American values when, in fact, he is reflecting the values of many Americans.

He ignored her, and she asked the same question again. "We're better than this", Biden tweeted on Friday.
