Trump denies 'shithole' comment: Africans and Haitians uphold Twitter outrage

US President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting on prison reform in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington DC

"The Dems will threaten "shutdown", but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most".

Trump then suggested the U.S. should bring in more people from countries like Norway, the report said.

Lindsay Graham had suggested suggested cutting back on the number of people participating in the visa lottery program, when the president began to complain about the US taking immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries. Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.

The Washington Post reported on Thursday that Trump had asked: "Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?".

In tweets posted Friday, the president said he used "tough" words but denied the widely reported comments.

Trump also described the meeting as a "big setback for DACA!"

Trump has called himself the "least racist person that you've ever met" and has spoken positively about Haitians in public.

Korea, US Discuss Coordination over Inter-Korean Relations
China and Russian Federation , which both oppose the proposal for maritime interdiction , have not been invited to the summit. One of the options to be discussed, he said, would be naval interdiction to stop North Korean smuggling.

He added that Trump will "always reject temporary, weak and risky stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway".

"'Why do we want these people from all these shithole countries here?"

Politicians in Minnesota are speaking out after President Donald Trump reportedly made controversial comments about immigration in a meeting in the Oval Office.

It was widely reported that Trump called Haiti, El Salvador and the entire African continent "shithole countries".

But Durbin insisted on Friday that Trump repeatedly used "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries. The only ones left at this point who could possibly believe that Trump is not a flat-out racist are those who hold the same views and want to deny their own racism.

The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the president's tweet. He also suggested his future meetings with lawmakers be recorded.

That resulted from the administration's decision to end a program providing temporary protected status for those almost 60,000 Haitians impacted by the 2010 quake that hit their nation.
