According to multiple reports, in an oval office meeting on Thursday, President Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as "sh*thole countries", questioning why the USA would see any value in welcoming people from those countries to the US.
Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who've been close allies to the president on the issue of immigration, were in a White House meeting with him Thursday when Trump, according to sources, expressed frustration with people coming to the US from "sh-hole countries".
In a series of tweets Friday, Trump said he used "tough" language but that he "never said anything derogatory" about Haitians. Associated Press White House reporter Jonathan Lemire said no one at the White House denied "that he used these vulgar terms to describe these immigrants". "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump tweeted after reports of his remarks sparked worldwide outrage with the UN's human rights office calling them "racist" and "shameful".
But he added that the words attributed to him were "not the language used". What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!'
Johnson rejected Trump's claim in a 2015 CNN interview in which the President said he was "the least racist person", declaring that "he's a racist both in his actions and his words".
Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo on Saturday said Donald Trump's reported description of African nations as "shithole countries" was unacceptable, while his predecessor branded the USA head of state a racist. "Haitians should not be seen as a bunch of immigrants who come to the United States to exploit U.S. resources".
The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.
His promise is now in question after the comments allegedly made during a private immigration meeting with lawmakers. He added: "He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly". Now more than ever we need to hear your voices.
Ben Marter, a spokesman for Durbin, did not provide details of the conversation but said the senator was "encouraged" by Trump's reaction.
In 2009 Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, chose Ghana's capital Accra to set out his foreign policy goals for Africa in a speech in which he said he saw Africa "as a fundamental part of our interconnected world".
