No cover: Republicans don't back up Trump's "s**thole" denials

The Washington Post, the newspaper that first reported Trump's "shithole" remarks ran a rather conservative headline. "These are American values and this White House has strayed from them". "I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday".

On Friday, Trump ignored a question shouted from White House reporter April Ryan over whether he was a racist while leaving an event honoring Martin Luther King Jr. The President did not answer.

Trump strongly denied the derogatory remark against Haiti over Twitter the next day, but neither he nor the White House mentioned his attitude toward African nations.

Members of Central Florida's Haitian community on Friday criticized reports that President Donald Trump used a vulgar remark to describe the country on the eve of the anniversary of the 2010 quake, one of the deadliest disasters in modern history. Trump said, "We should have more people from Norway", according to one source briefed on the conversation. She said they are hurting prospects for a bipartisan agreement on immigration.

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he wrote. "If those countries aren't as you described, Democrats should be happy to deport criminal aliens back to them".

Trump reportedly described the homelands of migrants arriving in the United States as "sh*tholes" while speaking at the White House on Thursday.

"Haiti? Why do we want people from Haiti here?"

"President Trump has been and is a racist".

The comments were widely received as racist, and also raised concerns internationally.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson opened his Thursday night's show by suggesting Trump said what everyone already knows.

"We sent guidance to our folks and told them that we must reiterate that we have great respect for the people of Africa and all nations, and our commitment remains strong", he said. The storm over Trump's alleged language follows a New York Times story past year about a meeting in which Trump allegedly said Haitian immigrants "all have AIDS". "Good morning from the greatest most attractive "shithole country" in the world!"

In a tweet Friday morning, Trump distanced himself from the reports. "That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from 'shitholes.' The exact word used by the president, not just once, but repeatedly".
