Blatant racism from xenophobic bigot: Twitter calls out Trump for his remark

In the United States, Democratic and Republican lawmakers criticized Trump's comments as "divisive" and "unacceptable", while Haiti, one of the countries explicitly named by Trump, summoned the top USA diplomat there to discuss the President's remarks.

According to three people who were briefed on the conversation, Trump questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal.

Hosts of various American "Late Night" shows including Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers slammed US President Donald Trump for calling African nations "s**thole countries" during their showtime. Trump was quoted as saying.

He added: "I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level". "This is particularly surprising as the United States of America remains a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity".

The source said Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin was explaining to him a proposal to end the visa lottery in exchange for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for countries such as El Salvador.

The TV personalities tore Trump apart after Democrats, Republicans and immigration advocacy groups condemned the President's profanity-laced remarks.

Cooper said that the White House was attesting to the veracity of the comments by not denying that they were said.

Trump on Thursday questioned why the United States would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as "shithole countries", according to two sources familiar with the comments made in the White House.

The meeting was attended by half a dozen senators and congressmen from both parties.

Congresswoman Mia Love - the only Haitian American in congress- was on a flight from Washington Salt Lake City, where she told Fox 13, she's hoping for an apology.

"He said 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

"I look forward to getting a more detailing explanation regarding the President's comments", he said. So if you say Norway is a better place to live, and Haiti is kind of a hole - anyone who has been to those countries or has lived in them would agree.

Hillary Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine was scathing in his criticism.

He added: "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?"

"This is who Donald Trump is".

Hosts like Jimmy Kimmel have dealt with many freaky moments from the Trump White House.

Another user said that Trump only said what "everyone is thinking".

Three weeks ago, The New York Times reported that Trump had said Haitians "all have Aids" during a similar June meeting.

Trump has shown little respect for traditional behavior or concern about the horror that erupted when people he would describe as elites learned about his words in a Washington Post report.
