In his meeting with a group of senators, Trump had questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s**thole countries" in Africa as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to one participant and others who had been briefed on the remarkable Oval Office conversation.

Trump said on Twitter on Friday he merely used "tough" language when discussing a new immigration bill with a group of U.S. senators. Instead, they spent the afternoon reacting to reports that President Donald Trump referred to their nation as a "shithole" and wanted to exclude Haitians from any special protected status.

At first the White House did not deny that the remark was made. Maybe not the Trump family and his fellow billionaires, but the people who have been paying for their elders' Social Security and Medicare every payday may not be so lucky. That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from, 's***holes.' The exact word used by the president - not just once, but repeatedly.

Espaillat says Trump's alleged remarks are in line with his previous behavior. The privilege was given to El Salvador following a series of earthquakes in 2001.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". "Oh, I feel bad", said Barhanyu Brhe who immigrated to Raleigh from Ethiopia in 2010 and now manages Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant near NC State.

On the solution to divisiveness: "The solution to our current divisiveness does not live in the White House".

Botswana's foreign ministry summoned the U.S. ambassador in protest and called the comments "highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist". They are doing nothing to fix DACA. This is the time but, day by day, they are blowing the one great opportunity they have.

Trump's allies have argued that the controversy over his remarks is overblown.

Commenting on the White House meeting, Graham said on Friday that diversity had always been the United States' strength. Apparently he and I are the only two people that use a few curse words here and there.

On Friday (local time) the President tweeted that his language was "tough" but insisted he did not say anything derogatory about Haiti aside from noting it's a poor country.

Trump previously told Haitian-Americans: "I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion", while he was campaigning past year in Miami's Little Haiti.
