'I'm not a racist': Trump's denial after 's***hole countries' controversy

Reacting to the reports, Haiti's government said it was "profoundly outraged and shocked" over what it described as Mr Trump's "racist" comments.

Negotiations over a deal on the DACA program, which has protected undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children from being deported, froze this week after Trump reportedly derided African nations as "s***hole countries" and asked why more immigrants couldn't come from Norway during a closed-door meeting with lawmakers to discuss a bipartisan immigration proposal.

But Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who was reportedly at the meeting said the U.S. president used "shitholes" in the context of African countries. Trump spent about three hours with military doctors at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Maryland, an exam that White House doctor Ronny Jackson said went "exceptionally well". He said that Trump and Carson, the lone African-American member of the Cabinet, were talking about the fallout from Thursday's vulgar remarks when Trump turned to him and said, "I am not the person that the media is making me out to be".

Senator Dick Durbin issued a withering rebuke to denials by President Trump that he called Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries "shithole countries".

And Haiti's US ambassador told the BBC that Haitians are not "simply immigrants who come here to take advantage of the U.S".

As the 16-day DreamWeek, which is now ongoing, is about respecting, listening and learning from each other, Nakpodia said he can't dismiss Trump's comment.

Jeffress says Trump has a constitutional responsibility as commander in chief to protect the U.S.

Trump said, "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"

He also said that the Democrats "made up" the story, claiming that he referred to Haiti as a "sh*thole country", emphasizing that he had never said "anything derogatory about Haitians".

Trump tweeted Friday amid criticism over his comments during a White House meeting Wednesday.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein weighed in on Twitter, calling Trump's comments "disgusting" and that they diminish America's standing in the world. "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards", Trump said in a series of tweets on Friday. "He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly", Durbin added. "I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist". He followed up by reportedly questioning why the US couldn't accept more immigrants from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister Trump recently met. Trump questioned at a White House meeting Thursday why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa than from places like Norway.

It also underlined the strong historical ties between the two countries and urged the USA to respect the dignity of its "noble and courageous" people. I want safety and security for our people.

At first the White House did not deny that the remark was made. "I think President Trump is racially ignorant and racially uninformed".
