Maine's congressional delegation denounces Trump's reported vulgar remarks

Raila demands for apology from Trump as storm brews over the racial

"So, it's not just President Trump who doesn't understand that", added Young.

"To our brothers, sisters, and friends in immigrant communities at home and across the world, know that we stand with you".

He later tweeted that he has "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously a very poor and troubled country". "Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but ´racist´", Rupert Colville, spokesman for the United Nations human rights office, told reporters in Geneva.

Trump denied using certain "language" and tweeted the following: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump insisted in a series of Friday morning tweets.

The US is working on changes to its immigration system, with both Republican and Democrat senators suggesting cutting the visa lottery program by 50 per cent and prioritising countries already in the system.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was equally critical of her onetime rival in last year's presidential campaign and the U.S. ambassador to Panama has tendered his resignation amid the ongoing scandal. Some African governments found themselves in an awkward position as top recipients of United States aid but Botswana's government called Trump's comment "reprehensible and racist".

Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett, reporting from Washington, DC, said: "The calls for the president to apologise for his remarks are intensifying inside and outside the USA, but for now, that apology does not appear likely". "I expect that our assistance programmes would continue pretty much as they are", Jackson told Joy News.

Raila demands for apology from Trump as storm brews over the racial
President Donald Trump suggested the US should bring more immigrants from Norway and not ‘shithole countries

At one point, Trump, according to two sources, said: "Why do we want all these people from Africa here? If he said it, he has to apologize, but if he did not say it, I think The Washington Post should apologize".

He doesn't deny that Trump possibly used the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and Africa, but he believes it's been taken out of context.

Critics of the president, including some in his own Republican Party, attacked the vulgar comments he made behind closed doors. "That's not how a president behaves".

He was also said to have added the suggestion that the U.S. should admit people from Norway instead.

"We stand in solidarity with the Haitian Lawyers Association and all of those who speak out against systematic racism and those whose words and deeds embolden these repugnant policies", the statement continued. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", Trump tweeted.

Trump, according to a White House official, also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt they help the United States economically, the report said.
