Federal govt summons United States ambassador over Donald Trump's 'shithole' comment

Donald Trump pushes for merit-based immigration system

Trump was said to have told them that instead of granting temporary residency to citizens of countries hit by natural disasters, war or epidemics, the USA should be taking in migrants from countries like Norway, whose president he had met with earlier.

He was referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme, which protects young people who came to the U.S. as children and are living here illegally.

Previously, South African politicians also expressed their concern over Trump's remarks.

Sen. Graham shared a statement on Friday which said: "Following comments by the President, I said my piece to him directly yesterday". He asked why the United States had to accept immigrants from "shitholes" like Haiti and Africa.

As "shithole"-gate unravels, many have denounced Donald Trump for the derogatory comments he made about Haiti and African countries - comments that he has denied".

Mr. Trump was reported to have made the unsavoury comments while complaining about immigrants coming to the USA, during immigration negotiations on Thursday with lawmakers in the Oval Office.

"I think it fundamentally poisons the relationship with numerous countries". "And I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Perdue said on ABC's "This Week". "Never said "take them out".

This is not the first time Trump has sought to blame Democrats for the thorny debate over the immigration program, tweeting earlier this month that they were "doing nothing". He elaborated on the way to dinner Sunday night with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., saying Democrats "don't want to help the DACA people".

Efforts to extend the program are further complicated because it could make a funding bill to avert a government shutdown due Friday more hard.

It said it would ask the second-in-charge of the USA embassy to explain Trump's comments on Monday. We want security at the border. About 700,000 people are covered by DACA.

He said, "there are a lot of sticking points". "We are ready, willing and able to make a deal, but they don't want to".
