South Africa Summons US Embassy Official Over Trump's Vulgar Remark

During a meeting with several senators in the Oval Office, President Trump reportedly questioned why the United States would accept more immigrants from "s***hole countries".

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", he wrote. During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump referred to Mexican immigrants as drug dealers and "rapists" and repeatedly called for a ban on Muslim immigrants.

Members of his own Republican party have also distanced themselves from Trump's comments.

Senator Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.

Last year, Trump drew worldwide criticism when he made equivocal remarks about white supremacists and did not immediately condemn racist violence in Charlottesville.

Questioned by a reporter in Florida following reports that he had said Haiti and Africa were "shithole countries", Mr Trump said: "No".

In a series of tweets on Friday morning, Trump said the language used by him at the meeting was "tough, but this was not the language used", stressing that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians".

"I didn't hear it", Cotton said when asked about the "shithole" comment during an appearance on CBS's Face the Nation Sunday.

The Trump administration has been feeling the heat after the president allegedly called nations like Haiti, El Salvador and several African countries "sh*thole countries" during a bipartisan meeting about immigration.

Henrik Heldahl, a commentator for the political website Amerikansk Politikk, said the sentiment would have been welcomed in Norway had Trump used less coarse language for Haiti and African countries.

As for Africa, he asked why more people from "shithole countries" should be allowed into the US, the sources said.

"It is incomprehensible that these words came out of the mouth of the president of the United States of America, a country that was founded on being free from discrimination", said Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican congresswoman.

"No. I'm not a racist".

President Donald Trump blamed Democrats for the stall in talks about a potential immigration deal.

The White House did not deny the comment on Thursday. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately no trust". We agree that federal tax reform is necessary and that there are serious problems with our nation's immigration system, including illegal immigration, that should be addressed.
