Trump reportedly said: "Why do we need more Haitians? Family. My family, like a whole of people, came from Ireland and worked the railroads". "So I see this as something to celebrate", Ryan added.

Almost 800,000 people who came to the U.S. illegally as children were protected under the Obama administration, but Trump will scrap the so-called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on March 5 unless Congress legislates a fix. Trump said, according to The Washington Post, the outlet that broke the news.

The speaker was attending an event at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee when he was questioned about Trump's remark that came during a bi-partisan meeting on immigration at the White House on Thursday.

He was referring to Trump's asking, during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers, why the US should admit more immigrants from "shithole countries" in Africa. Never said "take them out". I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

"We will have to do something short term", Ryan told a political forum in his native Wisconsin, when asked whether Congress would be able to reach a deal before government lights go out next Friday at midnight.

"I would like to find a way - and I don't know what exactly that's going to be - how do we get bipartisan consensus to fix these looming, debt problems we've got on the horizon", he said. "(C), you have a security component that has a DACA fix, and that gets you bipartisan support in the negotiation".

"The first thing that came to my mind was 'very unfortunate, unhelpful.' What I thought of right away was my own family".

Ryan also said that he is confident that there will not be a government shutdown next week, as lawmakers scramble to negotiate spending legislation to keep it operating.

Speaker Ryan said, "No we won't do that".
