Amid Outcry, Trump Denies Using Offensive Remarks to Describe Haiti, African Countries

"His history of racism is very well documented but I felt because I didn't know him that well and he had so many people normalizing his behavior, this is just how he talks", Hostin said.

"Why do we need more Haitians, take them out", he said, citing sources.

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", the president said. Trump went on to remark: "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Washington this week announced the end of a special protected status for around 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants in the United States, straining ties between the two countries.

During a Thursday meeting on immigration with a bipartisan group of lawmakers, Trump criticized protections the U.S. has given to immigrants from various underdeveloped countries.

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan called Trump's remarks "very unfortunate, unhelpful" at the WisPolitics Luncheon in Milwaukee on Friday, CNN reports. He said Twitter denials by Trump are "not true".

Colville also expressed concern for previous remarks by Trump that had what he called racial undertones, including campaign events in which the then-candidate had called Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists, and Trump's response a year ago to a white supremacist march saying that "both sides" deserved blame. The Washington Post reported that he became frustrated when lawmakers suggested restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries as part of an immigration deal. Trump met this week with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

'But the second one for me it would look a bit odd . if the referee is uncertain maybe he should be able to block straight away. There's a lot of money in this game, and I think this system could have come in a lot earlier than it has".

During the signing, Trump, joined by HUD Secretary Ben Carson and King's nephew Isaac Newton Farris in the White House, praised King's "faith and love for humanity" while urging Americans to walk in his legacy. "For him to confront the president as he did, literally sitting next to him, took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it".

It said it had sent a protest letter to the United States. He has said Mexican immigrants were "bringing crime" and were "rapists".

"Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?"

Durbin, the only Democrat in the room when President Trump made the comments, condemned it as "hate-filled, vile and racist".

The White House did not deny Trump's "shithole" comments in describing countries where the majority of residents are persons of color.

Trump's comments are extremely offensive to South Africa, said Jessie Duarte, a senior official with the ruling African National Congress.
