African immigrants in Raleigh 'insulted' by Trump's vulgar remarks

Trump denies 'language used' describing Haiti, El Salvador and places in Africa

The New York Daily News has taken aim at Donald Trump for reportedly describing African countries as "shithole countries".

The government in Botswana has described the language as "reprehensible and racist", demanding a clarification from the U.S. ambassador.

The statement from the African Union also followed a slew of worldwide condemnations.

Many US media outlets reported the comments on Thursday, quoting witnesses or people briefed on the meeting.

Haiti's ambassador to the USA says he and the Haitian government "vehemently condemn" the president's remark.

"Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice", AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said to the Associated Press.

The group's mission in Washington DC expressed its "shock, dismay and outrage" and said the Trump administration misunderstood Africans. "There is a serious need for dialogue between the USA administration and the African countries".

The ambassadors did not consult their governments before issuing the resolution, he said, adding that some could now expect to receive phone calls from their capitals because of the text's strong tone.

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, that has protected them from deportation following the 2010 quake, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month.

According to the police report, Man's family did not have any contact with her following her second disappearance on October 10. She was last enrolled for the Fall 2017 semester as a psychology major, and did not enroll in spring semester classes.

The alleged remarks were said to have also been made in reference to Haiti and El Salvador.

"In the business sense, I think we could go and get a lot of this done - and we need to".

In his tweeted denial, Mr Trump said: "The language used by me at the meeting was tough, but this [sh**hole] was not the language used".

President Trump has asked Congress for $18-B for the first phase of The Wall, for which Mexican officials have said they will not pay.

Trump didn't answer this or any other question shouted by reporters about his remarks.

- There's an estimated 36,000 Haitians living in Central Florida and they're reacting to President Trump's comments about their country.

"If that comment is accurate, the comment is incredibly disappointing", Scott told the newspaper.

They thanked "the American people from all walks of life and backgrounds who have condemned the remarks" and reaffirmed their commitment "to the values and principles of multilateralism, diversity and equality of nations".

"I want to take a moment to talk about Haiti, one of the places the President of the United States called a "sh**hole country", Mr Cooper started his speech live on air.
