US diplomats briefed on how to handle 'shithole' storm

The Washington Post, the newspaper that first reported Trump's "shithole" remarks ran a rather conservative headline. The President did not answer.

Mexico's former president, Vicente Fox, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, said in a colorful tweet that "America's greatness was built on diversity".

Trump disputed the Post's account, tweeting that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians".

The Vatican and the White House are at odds again, this time over President Donald Trump's reported use of vulgar language to refer to certain countries during immigration talks.

Trump specifically questioned why the USA would want to admit more people from Haiti.

"Why are we having all these people from sh****le countries come here", Trump reportedly said. The Congresswoman said they "worked hard, paid taxes, and rose from nothing to take care of and provide opportunities for their children".

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Trump used "racist" language.The president did call some African nations "shitholes", he said. "If those countries aren't as you described, Democrats should be happy to deport criminal aliens back to them".

'Shocked' Haiti Calls Trump's Reported Remarks 'Racist'
On Thursday , Trump reportedly questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s***hole countries" in Africa. Durbin said in his statement Friday that he and others in his bipartisan group will continue pressing for a DACA deal.

White House aides intended for President Donald Trump's Thursday interview with the Wall Street Journal to be a boon for the administration.

"Like all countries, Haiti is a collection of people: it's rich and poor, well-educated and not, good and bad", he said.

In Geneva, UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said "These are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States".

"This is encouraging and refreshing, as it indicates Trump is more or less on the same page as us with regards to race and immigration", the site said.

Trump's comments are extremely offensive to South Africa, said Jessie Duarte, a senior official with the ruling African National Congress. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) went on record to say he was in the room when it was made.

The offensive language and comments caused an global controversy and furthered questions about the president's mental fitness for the job.

Scott, who was elected in 2012, is the only African-American Republican in the Senate.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust. The president also insisted that while he used "tough" language during the meeting, he did not make the "shithole" remark as reported.
