Trump defends himself anew against charges that he is racist

U.S. President Donald Trump listens during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration policy in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington on Tuesday

President Donald Trump has expressed frustration over efforts of some U.S. lawmakers to protect immigrants from Haiti and African countries, asking why America should accept citizens from "s***thole" countries, triggering protests.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", said Raj Shah, the Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary without directly referring to Trump's comments.

"No, no, I'm not a racist", he said. "I'm the least racist person you will ever interview", as he was entering Trump International Golf Course.

"I'm praying that anytime our President meets Donald Trump face to face, he will remind him that he can not downplay us like that", Kabila told host Nana Yaw Kesseh on Peace FM's Kokrokoo.

"Did you see what various senators in the room said about my comments?" he asked. Trump tweeted Friday morning: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

A source familiar with the meeting told CNN's Jake Tapper the President did not refer to Haiti as a "s***hole" country but Trump did ask why the United States needs more Haitians and pushed to "take them out" of the deal.

Last year, the president reportedly said the 15,000 Haitians who immigrated to the U.S. Former VP Joe Biden also had choice words about Trump's language, tweeting, "It's not what a president should believe".

On a week during which Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood remembered thousands of Haitian natural disaster victims, racially tinged remarks attributed to President Donald Trump brought some to tears. "And I think he's kinda got to realize that too".

With Cleveland struggling so much, and the February 8 trade deadline looming, the question on everybody's mind keeps popping up. We just have to get back to making shots. "That's what a well-rounded team does".

I'm not saying Haitian immigrants are a problem.

"The United States Embassy and the United States Charge d'Affaires responded to the concerns of South Africa by stating that "there has been no change in the United States" dedication to our partners across the Continent" and that "the United States deeply respects the people of Africa and the people of South Africa‚ and values its partnerships with them‚'" said Monyela. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" "I hope you are", Lemon said.

"For months, I have been involved in numerous high-level bipartisan meetings negotiating DACA (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals), including Thursday's meeting at the White House".

Efforts to extend the program are further complicated because it could make a funding bill to avert a government shutdown due Friday more hard. The largest groups El Salvador and the second is Honduran and the third is Haitians and when I mentioned that fact to him, he said, "Haitians, do we need more Haitians?"

Trump was said to have told them that instead of granting temporary residency to citizens of countries hit by natural disasters, war or epidemics, the United States should be taking in migrants from countries like Norway.

Two other senators from Trump's ruling Republican Party called the reports a "gross misrepresentation" amid some accounts that the president might allegedly have used the word "shithouse" instead of "shithole". "We are ready, willing and able to make a deal, but they don't want to".

"We have a lot of sticking points but they're all Democrat sticking points", he said.
