Trump's Vulgar Remarks on Immigration Confirmed by Senator

Trump seemed to deny making the remark, but multiple senators from both parties that were in the meeting either confirmed or did not dispute it.

On Thursday, Trump was in a private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration when those who attended said he questioned why the USA would accept more people from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway.

The comments revived charges that the president is racist, and rocked immigration talks that were already on a tenuous footing.

Trump later tweeted that the language he used was tough, but not the language being reported.

The African group of ambassadors to the United Nations have issued an extraordinary statement condemning the "outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks" by USA president Donald Trump, and demanded a retraction and apology.

However, Republican Sen. Tim Scott, the junior senator from SC, told the Charleston Post and Courier that Graham told him the reported comments are "basically accurate".

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin told reporters on Friday.

Haitian-American TV anchor Alisha Laventure - who reports for the Dallas, Texas ABC affiliate - had strong words for President Donald Trump after he reportedly called the country her parents immigrated from a "shithole", as well as other developing nations.

Wenger: Ozil could still stay, but Sanchez will go
Bournemouth are a side who will take you on, but if you get the first goal against them they will open up and give you chances. Wenger also confirmed that he has no intention of leaving himself, amidst continuing question marks over his own position.

The fallout from alleged vulgar comments President Donald Trump made about immigration from Africa and Haiti continues.

Graham continued in his statement: 'The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it'. Democrats are fighting for the continuation of DACA, which Mr. Trump wants to end.

He said "it could have been a compliment and a nice sending off for Erna Solberg as a trusted United States partner", Heldahl said. "Why don't we get more people from Norway?'".

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

"In addition, the president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal, these people said". "Made up by Dems". I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. "Probably should record future meetings".

The AU's mission in Washington expressed its "infuriation, disappointment and outrage" at the comment and demanded a retraction as well as an apology. "It is more about ethnicity than shared values", said Hilde Restad, an associate professor in worldwide affairs and a former USA resident.

Former Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush visited Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, to lead US fundraising efforts following the January 12, 2010, quake.

A spokesman for the United Nations said Friday that Trump's reported words were racist.
