Donald Trump repeatedly called African nations 'shitholes,' senator says

Trump is'in excellent health' White House doctor says

Trump had reportedly questioned why the USA would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as "shithole countries".

Their statement came after the president tweeted Friday morning that the description of his remarks was not accurate. "We ask him to clarify why citizens of one country are "more desirable" than those of another and why the USA does 'not need more Haitians".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" the Washington Post quoted him as saying. He also reportedly suggested that the USA should bring in more people from countries like Norway.

The news drew rapid and global backlash-the latest coming from The Wilkie D. Ferguson Jr.

"We here at The Wilkie D. Ferguson Jr".

A statement issued by the African Union Mission in Washington DC, USA, and copied to the Ghana News Agency expressed infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by President Trump.

Jean, who was born in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince and is now secretary general of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie, called Trump's reported remarks "insulting".

The controversial remarks have already prompted an angry response from other countries, namely Haiti, which reportedly summoned United States officials for an explanation. He also claimed the deal would force the U.S. to "to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly", but did not offer any specifics or evidence.

"We will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful", Afuko-Addo's tweet also said. 2018 is an election year.

The president made the remarks on Thursday during a White House meeting with lawmakers and suggested immigrants from Norway would be preferable. Lindsey Graham, who was also at the meeting, seemed to confirm that report in a statement in which he said "following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel".

He later tweeted that he has "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously a very poor and troubled country".

"Today we celebrate Dr. King for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God", said Trump at the event.

"Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation", Shah said. He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.
