Key Things to Know About Haiti After Donald Trump's Insult

"The words used by the President, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", tweeted Arizona Sen.

Facing strong condemnation at home and overseas, US President Donald Trump has denied using the word "s--hole" to describe Haiti and African countries, but kept up criticism of a Senate immigration plan that he said would force the US to admit people from countries that "are doing badly".

Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., one of the lawmakers who attended the meeting, said publicly in comments to reporters and in a subsequent written statement on Friday that Trump's denial was false. "He used these vile, vulgar comments, calling the nations (certain immigrants) come from 's***holes'". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made".

It may come down to the account of Republican senator Lindsey Graham, who was conspicuously absent from the statement and who Democrats said challenged Mr Trump on the remarks.

Almost a year into Trump's presidency, members of Congress are still struggling to relate to the unorthodox Trump and his spontaneous, often crude remarks.

Jackson says he looks forward to providing additional details at a White House briefing Tuesday.

"There were two of us against 10 people in the room", Durbin said of him and Graham.

'Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday, ' Graham said in a statement.

Durbin and South Carolina Sen.

"This is a good time for all Haitians to begin to realize how other people see us", Josue continued. Reacting to Trump's remarks, the African Union continental body said it was "frankly alarmed" by Trump's comments. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

But today, Senator Durbin was fronting the press to denounce Mr Trump's insulting terms for African countries and Haiti in a follow up meeting yesterday. According to internal guidance obtained by ABC News, the department is telling its diplomats to "reiterate that we have great respect for the people of Africa and all nations and our commitment remains strong". "I think we held our own as best we could".

Dr. Guy Crevecoeur said he is concerned about the impact those remarks will have on Haitian people across the country and beyond. Never said "take them out".

"Then in a separate part of the conversation when they were referencing the diversity visa lottery, President Trump referred to people coming from Africa as coming from "shithole countries"," Tapper added. "My hope would be that they're actually upfront and open about what they're doing", Seaman says. I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals'.

Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, also a Republican, said he wanted more details of the president's comments.
