African countries demand US President Trump apology over 's**tholes' slur

Africans 'alarmed' by Trump's comments about their continent

The US ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, resigned his position, apparently in protest at Mr Trump's reported comments.

Two days after President Donald Trump described African nations, along with Haiti and El Salvador, as "shithole countries" with undesirable emigrants for the United States, the president of Ghana called the language "extremely unfortunate" and said his nation was not a "shithole country".

He also denied demanding that Haitians be removed from negotiations about protected status for people from certain countries.

He also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than that Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

"These remarks, so filled with hatred and derision, have been met with indignation by the Cuban people who are proud of the contribution made by people from everywhere, especially from Africa and Haiti, since the emergence of our nation", said a statement published on the website of the state-run newspaper Granma.

"On the eighth anniversary of an quake that almost devastated Haiti, we members of the Haitian Lawyers Association unfortunately find ourselves addressing disparaging remarks attributed to President Trump", reads a letter issued Friday by the bar association.

He said Mr Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once".

The presidents conflicting positions on immigration and his repulsive remarks place a heavier burden on members of Congress to negotiate their own deal and to stand against the presidents language.

In Geneva, UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said: "These are shocking and shameful comments".

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue said they did not hear the president's racist remark.

On Friday, Mr Trump on Friday tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been "tough". Trump told senators in the Oval Office, according to a source briefed on the meeting, the comments from which were first reported by The Washington Post.

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", he said on Twitter, adding that Democrats had made the accusations up.

Dick Durbin, a Democrat who attended an immigration meeting with President Trump on Thursday, confirmed Friday that the president made comments he considered "vile and racist" about immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. "We rebuke and disavow the words of the president as not representative of the majority of Americans, whom he has sworn to represent". He also said Haiti should be left out of any immigration deal.

"It is incomprehensible that these words came out of the mouth of the president of the United States of America, a country that was founded on being free from discrimination", said Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican congresswoman. But Krueger said that just delays the inevitable.
