Norwegian: No thank you, President Trump

S--HOLE COUNTRIES’ President Trump is under fire for comments on immigrants from Haiti El Salvador and African nations. According to reports Trump asked ‘Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here

But Sen. Richard J. Durbin, a Democrat from IL who attended the meeting, said publicly Friday that Trump's apparent denial was false and that he repeatedly used the phrase.

Surrounded by African-Americans, including the nephew of the civil rights leader and prominent African-American Republican Ben Carson, who delivered a speech, Mr Trump said: "Dr King opened the eyes and lifted the conscience of our nation".

"He used those words, and he used them repeatedly", Durbin said.

Trump denied the racist remarks, tweeting on Friday that the language he used "was tough, but this was not the language used", as he called for a "merit-based system of immigration and people who take our country to the next level".

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

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

Jorel Francois holds a sign that reads, 'President trump is a Bigot!' as he joins with others to mark the 8th anniversary of the quake in Haiti and to condemn President Donald Trump's reported statement about immigrants from Haiti, Africa and El Salvador on January 12, 2018 in Miami.

Trump reportedly became frustrated during the Oval Office meeting, asking: "Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" "When the question was raised about Haitians, for example, we have a group that have temporary protected status in the United States because they were the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval". Trump said, after lawmakers discussed restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal.

Americans from Memphis to Minneapolis, Bakersfield to Brooklyn, should be disturbed and offended by clearly racist remarks that came directly from the lips of the USA president on Thursday.

The NAACP president predicted Trump's remarks will help motivate African-American voters in the 2018 midterm elections, saying the comments are "the language of the '50s and '60s, it is the language of a Ross Barnett and a George Wallace". Several lawmakers say President Trump used a demeaning expletive to refer to Haiti and African nations during a meeting Thursday. News reports said Trump declared he would rather accept people from places like Norway than Africa.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Some conservative commentators pushed that narrative following the news.

"The language used by me at the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", he said.

"The USA we know is one that was built with blood and sweat of African slaves and immigrants from all over". "The president of the United States is exhausted of so many black people coming to this country", his colleague Anderson Cooper said. "I don't think anyone should say anything like that about any individual".

In response, the White House defended Trump's position on immigration.

"President Trump's comment regarding certain immigrant groups was clearly wrong".
