Representative Walker Reacts To President Trump's Comments

"Given historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the USA as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice", AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said.

Trump also reportedly said: 'Why do we need more Haitians?

Later, at 8:48 a.m., the president doubled down on his original statement.

In a Twitter message Friday, the former president accused Mr Trump of pursuing a policy of making America "White Again" instead of "Great Again".

The president reportedly questioned why the United States would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than nations like Norway. It is meant for individuals who moved to the United States illegally before the age of 16.

Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday.

The statement the African ambassadors issued expresses concern over the Trump administration's apparent increasing denigration of Africa "and people of color".

The NAACP also condemned Trump's remarks and said using profanity to describe the countries "is not only a low mark for this president, it is a low point for our nation". The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel.

"I must admit it really hurt when I heard that", said Crevecoeur.

During the discussion with members of Congress in the Cabinet Room, the Washington Post first reported, Trump asked, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

Fort Myers Councilman Johnny Streets said he is hearing from Haitians in his ward.

Haitians weren't the only people offended by the president's comments.

Trump denies using the term.

"Mr. President, are you a racist?".

"It's one thing to ask if he's a racist and that's OK, but the next thing is, since this continues to happen there needs to be something to dynamic, some kind of leverage", Ryan said. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

Americans deserve to know beyond any doubt exactly how our nation's leader described countries that are home to almost 1.3 billion people. Robert Chiponda, a communications consultant in Lusaka, said he never took Trump seriously.

In a statement on Friday, Graham reiterated standard pro-immigration, pro-amnesty talking points, claiming he almost reprimanded Trump after he allegedly made the comment. He also said Haiti should be left out of any immigration deal. "And he said them repeatedly", Durbin told reporters Friday.

El Salvador, also facing an end to protected status for its 200,000 citizens living in the United States, sent a formal letter of protest to the U.S. government over the comments.

Trump, who grew up in a Presbyterian family, shot back saying it was "disgraceful" for the pope to question his faith.
