Senator Tim Scott reacts to Trump 's***hole' controversy

Withdraw and Apologize 54 African Countries Ask US President Trump Over 'Shithole' Slur

"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", the senator said. Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Sunny Hostin didn't sugarcoat it Friday morning on "The View", saying Donald Trump's latest controversial comments led to her realization that the president is a racist.

On Friday, Mr Trump ignored press questions about the issue as he signed a proclamation declaring a holiday in honour of civil rights hero Martin Luther King Jr - as presidents do every year.

Jean, who was born in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince and current secretary general of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie, called Trump's reported remarks "insulting". "To me, that's like saying, we don't want y'all brown people because you're not doing anything", she said, "We want people from Norway".

It is hardly a surprise that Trump would harbor such racist feelings about Africa, Haiti and El Salvador.

Altidor said Foreign Affairs Minister Antonio Rodrigue told him that the United States chargé d'affaires in Haiti, Robin Diallo, had been summoned to explain the reported slur.

The White House meeting on immigration included a bipartisan group of senators.

Reports of the president's language referring to people of colour from the other countries drew criticism from USA lawmakers of both major parties and critics overseas who said they could not be described as anything but racist.

"We always knew that president Trump doesnÂ't like people from certain countries or people or certain colours", alleged Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez.

Trump later tweeted comments about "taking them out" - referring to Haitians - were "made up" by Democrats.

Trump has been calling for merit-based immigration, of which people from countries like India could be a major beneficiary.

The remarks "were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", Flake tweeted.

It said in a statement that it had asked the US government, through its ambassador, to "clarify" if the derogatory remark also applied to Botswana given that there were Botswana nationals living in the United States and others who wished to go there. They weren't surprising. They were on par with literally everything he's said and done FOR DECADES. Robert Chiponda, a communications consultant in Lusaka, said he never took Trump seriously. "He said, 'That's a good line, ' dismissing it", Durbin said. "He's president of the United States".

"The exact word used by the president, not just once but repeatedly", the senator said.

"The president must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned". Remember the time he said everyone in Haiti has AIDS? However, we can not sacrifice one group of immigrants for another. Trump said, according to reports. "For him to confront the president as he did, literally sitting next to him, took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it".

Among those expressing outrage, U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill, called Trump's remarks "disgusting and infuriating".

Dodging the questions, the President said goodbye to his guests and rushed out of the room.
