Trump Says His Words Were Tough But He Didn't Say 'Shithole' Nations

US President Donald Trump on Friday (Jan 12) implied that he did not describe African nations and Haiti as "shithole countries" during a meeting with legislators over immigration.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said during a press conference at an MLK breakfast Friday.

Trump said that the United States should accept more immigrants from countries like Norway, the reports said. He also said of immigrants from Haiti, "take them out", meaning, take them out of the immigration bill.

"Never said 'take them out, '" Trump said, likely a way for him to say he never requested deportation for those receiving temporary legal protection.

Senate Republican Leader Len Fasano, who has come under fire for not forcefully criticizing Donald Trump in the past, strongly denounced the Republican President on Friday for describing Haiti and other nations as "shithole countries".

The president later tweeted that "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

"What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made", Trump tweeted.

Warren panned the president's alleged remarks as "racist, vile and disgusting", adding that immigrants from places like Haiti and Africa "are an integral part of the American fabric".

He added that Trump will "always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway". Last spring, he combined two major stories ― a mistreated United passenger and Trump's decision to fire former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey ― in one much-discussed illustration.

The president specifically criticized the Temporary Protected Status the United States has given to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and some African countries. He also suggested his future meetings with lawmakers be recorded.

Ex-Mexican President Vicente Fox told Mr Trump on Twitter his "mouth is the foulest shithole in the world". "The exact word used by the President".

"Language like that shouldn't be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn't be heard in the White House", Ms. Ros-Lehtinen said in a Twitter post.
