'Thanks, but no thanks': Norwegians reject Trump's immigration offer

Trump'shithole countries mapped

Trump on Thursday questioned why the United States would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as "shithole countries" during a briefing on draft immigration legislation, according to two sources familiar with the comments.

Trump reportedly demanded to know why the US allows so much immigration from the aforementioned "shithole countries" in a meeting with lawmakers about immigration policy on Thursday.

Former governor general Michaëlle 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.

In response to the backlash, President Trump took to Twitter (as he usually does), and denied using "tough" language during the meeting.

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

"We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle" that addresses the main policies Trump sought, they said.

Colville also expressed concern for previous remarks by Trump that had what he called racial undertones, including campaign events in which the then-candidate had called Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists, and Trump's response a year ago to a white supremacist march saying that "both sides" deserved blame. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

On Friday, few Republicans defended the president's remarks, and party leaders were silent most of the day.

Trump then "said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist", Durbin said, adding that "s***hole" was "the exact word used by the president, not just once but repeatedly". "It's already done, it's not about me, it's about what he said already".

Freed Taliban hostage, married to York County woman faces list of charges

The ambassador said he doesn't believe Trump's remark reflects the views of the American public and that he has been "bombarded by emails from the American public apologizing" for their president's "regrettable" comment.

Trump tweeted a convoluted denial early on Friday about the comments allegedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.

"Any alleged comments by the President in a (n) immigration meeting are best responded to by the the White House".

The White House has not denied the language used at the Thursday meeting on immigration.

El Salvador's foreign ministry said the USA president had "implicitly" accepted the use of "harsh terms detrimental to the dignity of El Salvador and other countries".

So are those at the Greater Haitian American Chamber of Commerce. But do we really need to spray asterisk sanitizer on a word that 1) everyone knows; 2) is heard on regular cable TV; and 3) was a direct quote from the President of the United States?

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, protecting them from deportation following the 2010 natural disaster, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month.

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.

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.
