Trump's vulgar comments about immigrants lambasted from left and right

Trump's vulgar comments about immigrants lambasted from left and right

During the meeting, Trump questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa rather than places like Norway.

The United Nations on Friday slammed US President Donald Trump's reported description of African nations and Haiti as "s...hole" countries as "shocking and shameful", and "racist".

Earlier in the day, the Office of UN Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said the USA president's reported remarks that immigrants were coming from "shithole countries" were racist.

On Thursday, US media reported that Trump behind closed doors expressed displeasure over people migrating to the United States from "shithole countries".

"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", Durbin said. "Take them out", according to one source.

Multiple news outlets - including NPR - have reported that Trump used a vulgarity during a meeting with senators to discuss a possible deal on immigration.

On Friday, Trump denied using the language, about Haiti, and tried to turn the conversation to Democrats.

The U.S. leader has been under fire at home and overseas after some reports said he referred to Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries" during a meeting on an immigration deal with a group of bipartisan lawmakers at the White House on Thursday. Trump also wrote that the comment was "made up by Dems" that he said "take them out" regarding Haitians - further muddying the waters over shithole.

We know that if it were geographically possible to build walls to keep out those immigrants, Trump would do that, too.

"Why do we want all these people from 'shithole countries" coming here?" "He used those words", Durbin said.

The pact also includes restrictions on immigrants' abilities to bring relatives to the United States of America and termination of a visa lottery system that has helped gain entry for people from African and other diverse countries.

"As an American, I am ashamed of the president", said Democrat Representative Luis Gutierrez.

Mr Trump's alleged comment has caused a backlash among Haitians and people across Africa.

Jeffress sent out the statement as many evangelical leaders condemned the remarks as offensive and racist.

"Hopefully they'll contribute their ideas to the solution but. six people can't agree to something that will bind Congress and the House", Cornyn said.

"We're going to have - more than a signal - we're going to have a very clear message this is something he'd support, that he'd sign", Cornyn said. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs".

United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva that Trump's comments were "shocking and shameful".

Donald Trump has merited the ire of the Internet and a lot of American citizens after a damming story published by the Washington Post reports Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador and Africa as "sh*thole countries".

But Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who attended Thursday's meeting, asserted that those quotes were accurate. Haiti's government and ambassador to the United States "vehemently condemn" Trump's statement, the ambassador, Paul Altidor, told an NBC News contributor.
