'I'm not a racist': Trump's denial after 's***hole countries' controversy

But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), whom Durbin said had voiced objection to Trump's comments during the meeting, issued a statement that did not dispute the remarks.

"Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". "I use those words advisedly".

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", said White House spokesman Raj Shah.

Trump scrapped an Obama-era programme that gave the 800,000 young immigrants legal protection, setting a March deadline for Congress to offer a fix - though it has been reinstated by a court, for now.

USA diplomats serving in Haiti and African countries have been briefed to convey Washington's respect if they are summoned to explain President Donald Trump's alleged insults.

"We believe that a statement like this hurts our shared global values on diversity, human rights and reciprocal understanding". Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake.

"(I) have known many fine Haitians - including a former governor general of Canada, " Campbell said in a tweet.

His promise is now in question after the comments allegedly made during a private immigration meeting with lawmakers.

During a Thursday meeting on immigration with a bipartisan group of lawmakers, Trump criticized protections the USA has given to immigrants from various underdeveloped countries. I have not read one of them that's inaccurate.

"In addition to being insulting to us, more importantly it's quite disrespectful and insulting to the people that we're trying to help and the friends and colleagues that we've made there over the last eight years", Furey said in an interview. "If he said it, he has to apologize, but if he did not say it, I think The Washington Post should apologize". "Millions have then gone on to make tremendous contributions to the United States, revitalizing the communities in which they live, and weaving deeply into the multicultural fabric of the United States". "That's not how a president behaves". He knows absolutely nothing about these people - the pain they've faced, their harrowing journeys, or their commitment to our country, much less the cultural vibrancy of the countries they came from.

Mr Durbin said he told Mr Trump the word "chain migration" - used by opponents of immigration to describe people sponsoring family members to join them in the USA - was "painful" for many African-Americans whose ancestors had arrived in the U.S. as slaves.
