African Union slams 'hurtful, upsetting' Trump remark

The UN has also branded as racist, the reported remark branding Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African nations as "shithole countries".

During a meeting with several senators in the Oval Office, President Trump reportedly questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from "s***hole countries". Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake. The hostility he expresses towards non-whites and "less developed" countries is appalling and it may seem befitting to label him a racist and a xenophobe. Mr. Trump reportedly said.

Enough is enough! If the head of any corporation said what the president said yesterday, that person would be fired.

"Trump's comments make things much more difficult, largely because Democrats like Chuck Schumer have to take a hard line against Republicans", Valliere told Business Insider, referring to the Senate minority leader. "And he said them repeatedly".

"Africa/U.S. relations will take strain from this, with a leader who has failed to reconcile humanity", Maimane said.

In response, the White House defended Trump's position on immigration. "I expect that our assistance program would continue pretty much as they are", Jackson told Joy News. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

The White House also issued new, non-nuclear related sanctions against Iranian and Chinese entities and individuals. Senior administration officials said Larijani has overseen the sentencing and execution of juveniles in Tehran.

While Mr Trump also insisted on Friday that he had "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Trump reportedly said this Thursday during a meeting with lawmakers regarding a bipartisan immigration deal.

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

In his own tweet Friday, Trump had appeared to deny using the term "shithole", as he was reported to have done during a private White House meeting Thursday. Sen. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded. "Haitians should not be seen as a bunch of immigrants who come to the United States to exploit U.S. resources".

El Salvador has also sent a formal letter of protest over Trump comments.

Mr Trump was not apologetic about his inflammatory remarks and denied he was racist, and instead blamed the media for distorting his meaning, according to his confidant.

U.S. president Donald Trump has offered a partial denial in public over his extraordinary remarks disparaging Haitians and African countries - but privately defended them, according to an insider.
