Chorus of condemnation grows over Trump 'shithole' slurs

The White House did not originally deny Trump made the "shitholes" comment, but the president himself tweeted Friday morning that "this was not the language used".

It was already past midnight Friday when the news arrived in Norway: President Trump told members of Congress that the United States needed more immigrants from places like Norway and fewer immigrants from countries like Haiti.

UN Spokesman Rupert Colville said Trump's comments, if confirmed, were "shocking and shameful" and opened the door to "humanity's worst side and go against universal values".

Trump also reportedly said: 'Why do we need more Haitians? "They'll listen, that's their primary job to listen, and they'll reiterate the respect we have for that nation".

The response came after Trump told a bipartisan meeting of senators that the immigration system should be changed to allow fewer people from "shithole countries" during a discussion about Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations. "I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States". "It also reinforces the concerns that we hear every day, that the President's slogan Make America Great Again is really code for Make America White Again". "I think he hurt everybody, every Haitian". In a tweet, Trump denied the report, saying "this was not the language used". Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of SC, also present at the gathering, said he confronted the president over his racy comments.

"The words of a president are very powerful words and unfortunately this president has used his words to demean and belittle, instead of uplifting people".

"Generally, I prefer for network anchors to pose questions, rather than answer them", former CNN correspondent Frank Sesno said of cable news coverage. What the president reportedly said about Africa in a White House meeting stills stings at Diallo's store. "Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and US would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime....", Trump tweeted.

The Haiti the group cares so fondly about can be described with one word: strength.

In Haiti, on the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster that killed about 220,000 people, the government also summoned the top usa diplomat for an explanation, while the Haitian ambassador to Washington called for an apology.

"As immigrants, we built America", says Mcdoweel.

No tape is expected to be released as the comment was allegedly made in a private meeting, and it's unclear whether a recording even exists.

Hardest hit? The U.S. press, which had fingers crossed that a physical exam could provide the pretext to throw Trump out of the Oval Office.

The announcement comes after the Haitian government also reacted with outrage.
