After talking on the phone with U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday morning, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin was optimistic that a compromise deal with some Republicans to protect young "Dreamer" immigrants was on the verge of success.
As he campaigned for president in 2016, Trump told Haitian-Americans in Miami that they were "amazing people" who add "so much to our country".
Trump denied on Friday using such derogatory language, but he had already been widely condemned in many African countries and by worldwide rights organisations.
"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any President has spoken the words that I personally heard our President speak yesterday".
"I want to take a moment to talk about Haiti, one of the places the President of the United States called a "sh**hole country", Mr Cooper started his speech live on air.
The news cycle has been absolutely dominated by reports that President Donald Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "shithole countries" while questioning the need to provide protection to immigrants from those areas.
While Trump's various statements have frequently been deemed offensive, Furey said that's no reason to accept them. Also, life expectancy in Norway is 2.5 years higher than here in the U.S.

The rear admiral in the US Navy attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch and graduated in 1995. The memo also included laboratory results; past medical, surgical and social histories; medications and immunizations.
The United States should seek immigrants from Norway instead, he reportedly said.
"Why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?"
Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians ... he said, 'Hatians?" The meeting included discussion of a program known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS) that covers some 200,000 people from El Salvador living in the United States.
"I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist", a spokesman in Geneva said.
Mr Trump's alleged comment has caused a backlash among Haitians and people across Africa.
Trump earned national political prominence by promoting the falsehood that Barack Obama, America's first African-American president, was not born in the United States.
Former Haitian prime minister, Laurent Lamothe, tweeted that the world witnessed "a new low" with the remark which was "totally unacceptable".
"Never said take them out".
The comments, first reported by The Washington Post, sparked anger among Democrats and Republicans and revived questions about Trump's tendency to make racially charged remarks. "I'm not going to say, 'Oh, gee, I want this or that.' I'll be signing it".
Trump made the remark Thursday during a White House meeting after senators discussed revamping immigration rules. House Republican Mia Love from Utah, who is the daughter of Haitian immigrants, released a statement demanding an apology from Trump.
