Friday morning the president defended himself, tweeting, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

On Friday, AU chief Moussa Faki's spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo had also said Trump's comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice".

President Donald Trump is "a racist", NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson told CNN in response to Trump's comments about immigrants coming to the US from "shithole countries".

At the time, Trump was 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 236 pounds, which Bornstein said made him "overweight for his height". He allegedly indicated the United States should be more focused on bringing in immigrants from countries like Norway.

In a discussion about immigration from African nations, Mr. Trump asked why he would want "all these people from shithole countries", according to people with direct knowledge of the conversation.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, the USA president said: "We don't need more Haitians".

South Africa's ruling African National Congress called Trump's comments "extremely offensive", while opposition leader Mmusi Maimane said "the hatred of Obama's roots now extends to an entire continent".

He pointed out that the US accepted 23,000 Haitian immigrants and 172,000 Mexican immigrants in 2017, and immigration is so brisk from El Salvador that one in three Salvadorans now lives in the U.S.

Conte: Tiredness was a factor against Leicester
Leicester have lost successive away games in the division, having been unbeaten in the previous seven. The Blues are now level on points with second-placed Manchester United , who host Stoke on Monday.

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

"Just one day after those disgraceful, racist comments by the President of the United States in the Oval Office, calling African nations 'shithole countries, ' the president has not apologized. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

In a tweet on Friday, Trump denied using the word "shithole", but Durbin insisted that the president had indeed said it.

Adding "Botswana has accepted USA citizens within her border over the years and countries to host U.S. guests and senior government officials including a Congressional delegation that will come to Botswana at the end of this month". When he spoke to reporters on Air Force One earlier this week, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said it wouldn't be included in the physical, The Hill reported.

Graham said he pushed back at the president - an account that was backed up by Illinois Democratic Sen.

The president met on Thursday with Senators Lindsey Graham, Republican of SC, and Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of IL.

The same goes for our nation's health care system, where care seems to become less affordable with each passing year despite a law that promised better.
