Former governor general Michaƫlle Jean was among those Canadians who sharply criticized U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday for reportedly using vulgar language to describe Haiti and countries in Africa.

The newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, wrote about the comment in a front-page article about the immigration debate in the United States.

Graham said he pushed back at the president - an account that was backed up by Illinois Democratic Sen.

"The United States of America is a big country and the United States of America goes beyond just one man or one statement", she said.

The White House later denied he used the word AIDS to describe Haitians. When it came to the issue of, quote, "chain migration", I said to the president, do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?

In a series of Friday morning tweets, Trump said he used tough language during Thursday's meeting, but he denied using vulgarities.

"The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Jackson said.

When asked what Trump had said in the meeting, Durbin said, "I can not believe that in the history of the White House and of that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday".

The African Union said in its statement that while it condemn Trump's remark, maintaining a dialogue with the president was necessary to help him better understand their continent.

Trump's comments this week saw a plethora of pundits calling him a "racist". "My hope would be that they're actually upfront and open about what they're doing", Seaman says. "Do we need more Haitians?'" "I can see we have an ignorant president".

Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt had earlier tweeted that, judging by Solberg's visit, "keys to success with Trump are personal charm, a solid trade deficit with the United States and buying tons of USA military hardware".

Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country.

"There is a serious need for dialogue between the USA administration and the African countries".

Tweeted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive".

"We view the utterances by the current American President as highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist", the government in Gaborone added.

Some media outlets also reported that Trump said in reference to Haitians, "take them out".

On Thursday, Haitian President Jovenel Moise demanded a meeting with the top U.S. diplomat in the country, Charge d'Affaires Robin Diallo, according to State Department officials.
