White House Doctor Says Trump Is in 'Excellent Health' After Exam

When asked what Trump had said in the meeting, Durbin said, "I can not believe that in the history of the White House and of that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday".

Cuba's Foreign Ministry "strongly" condemned Friday night the "racist, denigrating and gross" statements by U.S. President Donald Trump on Haiti, El Salvador and African states.

Mr Trump's alleged comment has caused a backlash among people across Africa, in Haiti and El Salvador, with many tweeting pictures of their "shithole countries".

Trump criticised immigration to his country from El Salvador, Haiti and the African continent, by calling the group "shithole countries" at a meeting with Congress members at the White House on Thursday, according to USA media.

He pointed to Trump's 2015 comments on Mexican immigrants, who Trump said are "rapists" and bringing drugs and crimes to the U.S. Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question.

On Friday the president tweeted that his language was "tough" but insisted he did not say anything derogatory about Haitians aside from noting it's a poor country. The Trump administration moved in November to end that program for residents of the island nation. "Haiti has long history with the United States, dating back to the American Revolutionary War, (during which) 500 heroic Haitians volunteered to fight alongside the American troops for America's independence". "I'm sorry, but there's no other word one can use but racist", Colville said.

She also criticized American Urban Radio Networks correspondent April Ryan, who repeatedly shouted "are you a racist" at the president during the King Birthplace park signing ceremony. In 2015, America transacted US$37 billion in business with sub-Saharan Africa, US$7.6 billion with El Salvador and US$2 billion with Haiti, a country still ravaged by history as well as the after effects of the devastating 2010 quake. "True to his tradition, he did not apologize, and denied that he used the 'sh-hole" word but did admit he used some "tough language".

"Trump is a disgusting racist, sexist sociopath and bad for the country", one Twitter user wrote.

The President is in "excellent health, and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", he said in a short statement.

Meanwhile, Twitter users were not impressed with the president's "shithead" explanation for the controversial remarks and lack of an apology. "Do we need more Haitians?'" Durbin said.

Trump's comments were immediately denounced as racist and xenophobic at home and overseas, by the United Nations human rights office and politicians from the countries named.

Donald Trump's first presidential medical checkup "went exceptionally well", according to White House physician, Dr Ronny Jackson.

The presidents conflicting positions on immigration and his repulsive remarks place a heavier burden on members of Congress to negotiate their own deal and to stand against the presidents language.

The bipartisan Senate plan would attempt to maintain TPS in return for ending or changing a "diversity" lottery programme that has been aimed at allowing up to 50,000 people a year from countries with few emigrants to the United States.
