"He's president of the United States". His fellow South Carolina GOP Senator, Tim Scott, has called the comments "incredibly disappointing".

Haiti, though the poorest country in the Americas, has played an outsized role in the history of the region. He also claimed there were "very fine people on both sides" after violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, left one counter-protester dead.

The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it.

Mark Young of Mason City, a former attorney who is now a school principal in Belmond, assisted families with adopting children from Africa and Haiti in his law practice.

So far, the State Department said, the U.S. charge d'affaires in Haiti and ambassador in Botswana have been called in by their hosts after Trump reportedly dubbed these countries "shitholes".

The Washington Post first reported Trump's vulgar remarks Thursday.

Republican U.S. Representative Mia Love, a daughter of Haitian immigrants, said the comments were "unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation's values" and called on Trump to apologise to the American people and to the countries he denigrated.

"We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle" that addresses the main policies Trump sought, they said.

Already previous year, some Democrats had warned against negotiating with Trump, specifically on immigration.

Today as Trump signed a proclamation at the White House honoring Martin Luther King Jr. "But it can't go too much farther in Trump's direction without losing a whole bunch of Democrats". It was the sentiment behind his choice of words: That black, impoverished people are not welcome here, while blue-eyed, blond-haired Norwegians are. Ryan has had similar luck with current press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who had no patience with Ryan's asking for the Trump administration view on slavery.

In 2015, there were 676,000 Haitian immigrants in the United States, up from 587,000 in 2010, accounting for less than 2 percent of the US foreign-born population, according to the Washington based Migration Policy Institute. Those people largely built this country, in fact.

She said the ANC was not in a position to stop any president from any country from saying anything they wished.

But the government of Haiti - which on Friday was marking eight years since a devastating quake killed at least 200,000 people in the country - declared itself "outraged and shocked". "I am trying not to cry", Larrieux said. He added: "He's addressing the reality of the despots who run these countries". They don't blink. They stand tall and they have dignity.

Precisely. That is a reason to consider their plight, not put a blanket ban on them.

Durbin is the only person in the meeting who has spoken at length about what transpired in the Oval Office.

The President has since denied the comments; however, following Trump's denial, Sen.

The president had nothing to say to reporters, even when some asked whether he would apologize. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Michael Bennet, D-Colo., Cory Gardner, R-Colo., Bob Menendez, D-N.J., Durbin and Flake - are unknown. Diversity has always been our strength, not our weakness.

American news media reported on Thursday that Trump used the term at talks on a US immigration policy known as DACA. It's disturbing that Trump so easily denies saying something that a roomful of people very likely heard.
