Trump attacks protections for immigrants from 'shithole' countries

President Trump speaks to the media as he meets with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in the Oval Office on Jan. 10

In another Twitter post, the president wrote that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very troubled and poor country". The embassy in South Africa said the United States "deeply respects" the people of Africa, and "there has been no change in our dedication to partners & friends across the continent".

The document stressed that Cuba joins the strong rejection that these statements have arouse around the world, and expresses its most heartfelt solidarity with all the offended countries.

US 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.

At least 10,000 Haitian immigrants came to Southwest Florida after a 2010 quake devastated their nation.

El Salvador, also facing an end to protected status for its 200,000 citizens living in the United States, sent a formal letter of protest to the USA government over the comments.

Immigration is one of the issues that Pope Francis, who has strongly defended the rights of developing countries, and Trump have clashed over.

And Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting at the time, insisted Trump did say the words. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

Trump mentioned each of those nations and regions while discussing immigration policy on Jan 11, according to NBC News.

His remarks reportedly left the assembled politicians "taken aback", the paper said, with Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator for SC, and Richard Durbin, Democratic senator for IL, among those in the room.

Democrats have not budged on their demand that the almost 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program be given amnesty, along with their parents who brought them here illegally.

Congressman Adam Kinzinger said President Donald Trump's comments during a private meeting with lawmakers about immigrants were unacceptable.

Many of those troops are based at a United States base in the East African country of Djibouti. "And he said them repeatedly", Durbin told reporters Friday.

Hillary Clinton, Trump's 2016 Democratic presidential rival, took to twitter to blast his "ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn't look like him".

At an event in Wisconsin on Friday, House Speaker Paul Ryan described Trump's comments as "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful". "There is no other word one can use but 'racist, '" United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a Geneva news briefing.

Johnson rejected Trump's claim in a 2015 CNN interview in which the President said he was "the least racist person", declaring that "he's a racist both in his actions and his words". "I can assure you that my family and I didn't escape to the U.S.as 'Reagan Refugees, ' fleeing persecutions from the Central American version of Orlando's Magic Kingdom".
