He later tweeted that he has "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously a very poor and troubled country".

In Haiti, on the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster that killed about 220,000 people, the government also summoned the top United States diplomat for an explanation, while the Haitian ambassador to Washington called for an apology. "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate".

Rep. Mia Love, R-UT, herself a daughter of Haitian immigrants, issued a statement asking for the president to apologize for his "unkind, divisive and elitist" language.

"When Trump uttered his vulgar attacks yesterday against Haitians and Africans, he exposed the white supremacy at the core of US policy towards Haiti", the statement said.

The president responded on Twitter, saying the language he used at the DACA meeting was tough, but it was not the language he used.

Cuba's Foreign Ministry "strongly" condemned Friday night the "racist, denigrating and gross" statements by U.S. President Donald Trump on Haiti, El Salvador and African states. Trump told senators in the Oval Office, according to a source briefed on the meeting, the comments from which were first reported by The Washington Post.

Trump essentially denied using the language but that did not deter liberals and Trump-haters from feeding into the frenzy that followed. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!", the President tweeted.

"I want to take a moment to talk about Haiti, one of the places the President of the United States called a "sh**hole country", Mr Cooper started his speech live on air. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" He also said Haiti should be left out of any immigration deal.
