Sen. Tim Scott, a Republican from SC, told the Post and Courier that Sen. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians!" he posted. The African Union said it was "frankly alarmed" and the United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said the comments, "I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust". "All Americans must remember that the founding ideal of our country - E Pluribus Unum: out of many, one - has truly made America great".

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was in the meeting, told reporters Friday that Trump did in fact say those words and that he "said them repeatedly".
