African ambassadors to United Nations blast Trump remark as 'racist'

No more lotteries: Trump pushes for merit-based immigration in US

Trump's alleged statement also prompted outrage from the African Union (AU), the organization that includes all the 54 African UN states plus Western Sahara, which is not recognized by the UN.

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

The United Nations human rights office has strongly criticised "racist" comments by Donald Trump in which he said immigrants from Africa and Haiti come from "shithole" countries.

"The African Union Mission condemns the comments in the strongest term and demands a retraction of the comment as well as an apology not only to Africans, but to all people of African descent around the globe", it said.

- There's an estimated 36,000 Haitians living in Central Florida and they're reacting to President Trump's comments about their country.

President Donald Trump's reportedly labelled African nations and Haiti at a bipartisan immigration meeting as "s**thole" while asking for more immigration from places like Norway. It is about our values as Americans. "I can see we have an ignorant president".

Durbin told reporters in Chicago on Friday that he had reached out to the White House two hours earlier, had spoken with the president and asked him to consider the compromise plan he and five senators - three Democrats and three Republicans - had come up with to "save the Dreamers and help their families". "Then the influencer said you also need to call the telephone company, tie up the lines and call the telephone company talking about 'I need to have my worldwide phone plan include S-hole'". The comments, allegedly made by Trump, have also prompted widespread accusations of racism and disrespect towards other nations.

Sens. Jeff Flake R-Ariz. and Dick Durbin D-Ill. Of course, the president denies using the word, only owning up to using "tough language" during the immigration talks. It is not true. The White House did not deny the comment.

The comments were "clearly" racist, Kalondo said, but stressed the United States was "much stronger than the sum total of one man".

Then, Durbin said that the president began to describe immigration from Africa that would be protected under the bipartisan proposal. "On January 12, 2010 (they) are alive with us", he said.

Akufo-Addo is at least the first head of state or government in an insulted country to publicly respond to Trump. "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", Graham said in a statement.

The president tweeted later on Friday: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Trump previously told Haitian-Americans: "I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion", while he was campaigning previous year in Miami's Little Haiti. He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.
