Trump pushes back on Haiti comment

Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake.

But U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was at the meeting, insists the Republican president used the vulgar term.

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

The ANC, Duarte said, will not deign to make comments as derogatory as Trump's to describe the United States.

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in the Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin told reporters. "You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as ´shitholes´ whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", Colville said.

The ambassadors' reaction comes after the 55-nation African Union said it was "frankly alarmed".

Labossiere was among Haitians and Africans in the Bay Area and around the world who swiftly called Trump out for his comments, calling them blatantly racist.

Manchester City rejects Arsenal's price on Alexis Sanchez
So you are in a situation where you can not extend the contract of your players". "I feel I shouldn't say much more than this". Arsenal next play Bournemouth on Sunday in the league, while Manchester United host Stoke and City travel to face Liverpool.

The United States embassy in Accra, has said the U.S. has great respect for the people of the African continent.

Just before Christmas, a New York Times report emerged alleging that Trump had said people from Haiti "all have AIDS", that Nigerians all live in huts and that Afghanistan is full of terrorists. "No matter the colour of our skin or place of our birth we are all equal".

Botswana's government called the president's remark "racist". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

A White House spokesman defended Trump's position on immigration without directly addressing Trump's remarks.

The remarks were allegedly made when lawmakers visited him on Thursday to discuss a bipartisan proposal that would impose new restrictions on immigration but protect the so-called "Dreamers" - hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children - from deportation. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and US would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime. "What I think of these countries is actually very positive'". "I want to see the tape". Specifically, legislators are trying to forge a compromise on the Daca programme.

In a series of tweets yesterday, Mr Trump also suggested that momentum towards a deal on maintaining such protection had stalled.

Mr Durbin told reporters of Trump's continued slurs.
