Is President Trump wrong to call some countries a 'shithole?'

The comments come a day after Trump, in an Oval Office meeting about immigration, referred to a series of nations as "shithole countries" and questioned why the United States was not welcoming more people from Norway as opposed to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

The storm over Trump's alleged language follows a New York Time's story previous year about a meeting in which Trump allegedly said Haitian immigrants "all have AIDS". Trump asked, sources told the Washington Post.

The White House meeting was held to discuss a proposed bipartisan deal that would limit immigrants from bringing family members into the country, and restrict the green card visa lottery in exchange for shielding hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

The United Nations on Friday slammed US President Donald Trump's reported description of African nations and Haiti as "s...hole" countries as "shocking and shameful", and "racist". When it came to the issue of quote chain migration, I said to the president "Do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?"

Trump also questioned why the U.S. lets Haitians into the country, and mocked Durbin's assertion that African-Americans might be offended by the term "chain migration", the senator said. "And he said them repeatedly". Someone else in the room responded: “Because if you do, it will be obvious why.

"It's very frustrating", a senior White House aide told Politico.

Trump is being quoted as saying, "Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" then suggesting the USA should take in more people from countries like Norway. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians!" he posted.

"This is a man who made his name in the political world doubting President Obama's American citizenship, saying that he was born in Kenya", she continued. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

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.

High-ranking United States Senator Richard "Dick" Durbin, a Democrat from IL, claims that the president used the insult "repeatedly" to refer to developing nations; Donald Trump patently denies making any such remark.

He recounted to reporters what he heard: "He said, 'Haitians?".

In his statement, Graham did not say whether President Trump made the derogatory remarks, but he confirmed them to his fellow Palmetto State Republican, Sen. The Dems will threaten "shutdown" (of the government), but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most.
