U.S. diplomats briefed on how to handle 's***hole' storm

Flags of African Union members flying at a 2010 summit in Uganda

Trump invited several Senators to the Oval Office on Thursday to discuss the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The journalist's last question rang out over the room as Trump closed the door behind him, and a clipped "Thanks, press" presumably from a White House staff member didn't resonate as particularly thankful at all. The Washington Post said that during the meeting he said immigrants from Haiti should be left out of any new agreement approved by Congress. Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". Trump went on to remark: "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Meanwhile, Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat, who was present at the meeting and spoke to reporters Friday, confirmed the president's remarks and said that the media reporters were accurate.

Labossiere was among Haitians and Africans in the Bay Area and around the world who swiftly called Trump out for his comments, calling them blatantly racist. Trump used the words "repeatedly", the senator said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan called the comments "unfortunate" and "unhelpful", CNN reported. "But you know what I thought of right away?"

Trump to let states pursue work requirements for Medicaid
It's a big change from the Obama administration, which rejected overtures from states that wanted to add a work requirement. CMS said states would have to test whether the work requirement improves enrollees' health - a point Solomon ridiculed.

Friday morning, Durbin explained what was happening when he made the controversial comments. "Good morning from the greatest most handsome "shithole country" in the world!" "I think he should walk it back at some point".

"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" he asked, before suggesting he preferred the USA take in immigrants from countries like Norway. The largest group is El Salvadoran, the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian.

Trump, apparently upset with aspects of the deal that only curtailed the visa lottery programme by 50 per cent instead of completely eliminating it, questioned why the United States should be taking people from "shithole countries", The Washington Post reported, citing unnamed people briefed on the meeting. "We should have more people from Norway".

Carlson said that Trump may have created a panic because he inadvertently raised questions that our leaders don't want to answer: Who exactly are we importing into our country?

The Trump administration announced late previous year that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 citizens from Haiti to live and work in the United States following a devastating 2010 natural disaster.
