UN spokesman calls Trump's comments on Africa "shocking and shameful"

Trump use slur for Africa. Haiti while talking about immigrants: sources

But Botswana's government called Trump's comment "reprehensible and racist", saying the USA ambassador had been summoned to clarify whether the country was regarded as a "s-thole" one after years of cordial relations.

President Donald Trump has maintained his stance about El Salvador and African continent, which he described as "high crime countries which are doing badly".

Trump had also failed to clearly condemn the "anti-Semitic and racist actions of white supremacists in Charlottesville" at a rally in Virginia last August, Colville said.

"Unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say", South Sudan government spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny told The Associated Press.

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes" whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", Colville said.

The President reportedly lashed out during a meeting with lawmakers in the Oval Office- asking "why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?"

Without directly referring to Mr Trump, it tweeted: "US remains committed to working together w/Africans to realize the promise of a more peaceful, more productive, more prosperous 21st century Africa".

She said, "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation" and Trump must apologize to the American people "and the nations he so wantonly maligned".

The president also suggested it would be more acceptable to bring in more people from countries like Norway.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used.

This isn't just a story about vulgar language, it's about opening the door to humanity's worst side".

The six senators have been meeting for months to find a way to revive protections for young immigrants who arrived in the U.S.as children and are here illegally.

In exchange, the deal would end extended family "chain migration".

But TRAI said the move could curb the use of grey routes and the proliferation of OTT (over-the-top) routes for global voice calls.

The president and lawmakers are in the midst of intense negotiations about how to shield almost 800,000 "dreamers" from deportation. Trump ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program previous year but has given Congress until March 5 to find a way to keep it alive.

Colville, whose boss, United Nations rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein is a harsh Trump critic, urged Congress to "provide a durable solution" for the "dreamers".

Their future, he insisted, "should not be used as a bargaining chip to negotiate the most severe and restrictive immigration and security measures possible. These are human beings, not commodities".

The White House defended Mr Trump's policies on immigration and failed to deny he had made such comments.

"'Why do we want these people from all these shithole countries here?"

"He has not only insulted Africans, he has also insulted African-Americans", said Sylvester Odion Akhaine, associate professor of worldwide relations at Lagos State University in Nigeria.

Three weeks ago, the New York Times reported that President Trump had said something hugely offensive about Haitians - that they "all have AIDS" - in a June meeting about immigration.

Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, compared Mr Trump's comments to Nazism.

By now it's clear that Trump uses ethnic nationalism and racist rhetoric as a political tool, and that he is playing into a well of prejudice he sees among the grass roots against immigrants with dark skin.

Durbin, a key negotiator in DACA talks, recounted the meeting on MSNBC Friday, saying, "He said, 'Haitians".

Some Republicans were also unhappy.

Mr Trump's reported comments during a meeting with members of congress has sparked global outrage.

At the time Democratic Senator Dick Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham were talking through immigration programmes about countries impacted by natural disasters or civil strife.
