Here's How Republicans Are Reacting to Trump's 'Shithole' Comments

While discussing immigration with lawmakers in the Oval Office on Thursday, Trump asked why people from "shithole countries come here" - referring to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations.

President Trump tweeted a denial Friday that he had used such language in the meeting. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made".

The Botswana government summoned its USA ambassador "to clarify whether Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country," The Washington Post reported. Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of "Make America White Again"?

Prior to Trump's denial, UN Human Rights Office's spokesman Rupert Colville, slammed the reported comment, saying: "You can not dismiss entire countries as shitholes ..."

He continued an hour later, tweeting, "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Altidor said Trump should apologize for any vulgarity. Someone else in the room responded: “Because if you do, it will be obvious why.

Apparently, he was so frustrated with the U.S.'s lottery system that he demanded to know why other Americans would want people coming over from "shithole countries", like Haiti, El Salvador and various African nations.

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". Dick Durbin, who was present at the White House meeting, said he "personally heard" the president use what Durbin called "these vile and vulgar comments".

Mexico's former president, Vicente Fox, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, said in a colorful tweet that "America's greatness was built on diversity". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

In November, Trump that had been granted to Haitian immigrants living in the USA following the quake. April Ryan, Urban Radio Networks reporter and CNN contributor, said. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that "the president's expressed desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway must be called out for what it is: an effort to set this country back generations by promoting a homogeneous, white society".

We'll update this as more responses emerge. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told him that the words reportedly used by Trump were accurate. Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin of IL on Friday said Trump had indeed made the comments about 's***hole countries'.

Sunny Hostin didn't sugarcoat it Friday morning on "The View", saying Donald Trump's latest controversial comments led to her realization that the president is a racist.
