On quake memorial day, Trump comments shock Haiti

And Haitian ambassador Paul Altidor told MSNBC that Haiti believes Trump was "either misinformed or miseducated about Haiti and its people."

"Mr Trump may say what he pleases, but I am proud of being Haitian". "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems".

But neither the USA president nor the White House disputed the most controversial of his remarks in which he used the word "shithole" to describe African nations and said he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

The Washington Post, the New York Times, Politico and the Wall Street Journal all reported the comments on Thursday, quoting witnesses or people briefed on the meeting.

"This isn't just a story about vulgar language, it's about opening the door to humanity's worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia", he told reporters at a briefing in Geneva Friday. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Durbin also said when he tried to explain to the president why it was he shouldn't use the phrase "chain migration", which refers to the process by which immigrants bring their extended family into the U.S. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

"There are great people - many of whom would make great Americans - in every country on the face of the earth", Toomey wrote.

Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate, described the president's words as "hateful, vile and racist".

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.

Reacting to the comment in a tweet posted at 6:56 p.m. Mr Mahama expressed shock over the United States president's action and charged the African Union (AU) to condemn same.

Meanwhile, The Nigerian Daily Post had the headline, "Trump allegedly calls Africa 's-hole, ' orders 259,000 immigrants out of U.S".

On Thursday, President Trump referred to all 54 African countries as "shitholes," derided Haitian and El Salvadoran immigrants, and opined that we should prioritize people from Norway.

Trump's comments are extremely offensive to South Africa, said Jessie Duarte, a senior official with the ruling African National Congress. Democratic U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree called Trump's comments "racist" and "sickening". The largest group is El Salvadoran and the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian.

The president suggested that instead, the US should allow more entrants from countries like Norway.

Botswana also said it had summoned the U.S. ambassador to that country, Earl Miller, to "express its displeasure" and had asked Miller whether Botswana "is regarded as a "s**thole" country".
