When it came to the issue of, quote, "chain migration", I said to the president, do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?

For his part, Durbin told the president, "I raised the point If you exclude Haitians from this group of temporary protected people, the conclusion is obvious". 'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used, ' he said.

Trump told lawmakers that the US should instead seek out more immigrants from countries like Norway.

Another cardinal highlighted the role Haitians played in the founding of his city and offered a twist on Mr. Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again".

Trump's comments are extremely offensive to South Africa, said Jessie Duarte, a senior official with the ruling African National Congress. "There are still people who haven't been found", Bastien said.

As for Africa, he asked why more people from "s-thole countries" should be allowed into the US, the sources said. In his speech he said: "No matter what the colour of our skin, or the place of our birth, we are all created equal".

Though President Donald Trump denies he denigrated Haitian, Salvadoran and African immigrants, his comments last week are not revelatory.

The government said Trump should apologize if he made such comments, and summoned the top USA diplomat in the country for an explanation.

Africa startled by Trump's sudden and vulgar attention
Republican leaders were largely silent, though House Speaker Paul Ryan said the vulgar language was "very unfortunate, unhelpful". As for Africa, he asked why more people from "shithole countries" should be allowed into the United States , the sources said .

Trump's comments added uncertainty to already contentious talks about legislation to shield hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation and boost border security measures. "Do we need more Haitians?"

The US ambassador in Botswana was summoned on Friday by the government to hear complaints about Trump's reported remarks: "The Government of Botswana, today summoned the US Ambassador to Botswana to express its displeasure at the alleged utterances made by the President of the US", the country's foreign ministry said in a statement posted on Twitter.

Joe Biden, ex-US vice president, said: "It's not how a president should speak".

"They never took a thing from our federal government".

The president signed the proclamation to applause from the group in the room. "Turns out they're just like us", Cox said in a Tweet that included pictures of his son with a smiling family.

Haiti was among the nations to abstain at the United Nations rather than condemn Trump's change in policy over Jerusalem.

The Nordic country, one of the richest in the world by GDP per capita, was previous year named the happiest nation on the planet and is known for a cradle-to-grave welfare state funded in part by large reserves of oil and natural gas. The comments were the latest in a long history of racist remarks by Trump. He called immigration "a lovely story of America " and said Africans in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin, are "incredible citizens".

Rene Civil, a left-wing activist in Haiti, demanded the USA president apologise "before the entire African continent, as well as before Haiti, the country whose blood has been used by ancestors who have served with their minds and bodies to liberate the United States itself from slavery".
