TV anchor, daughter of Haitian immigrants, delivers epic rebuttal to Trump

He was referring to comments reportedly made by Trump during a meeting on Thursday with lawmakers about immigration reform, demanding to know why the United States should accept citizens from "shithole" countries.

Trump's response Friday morning was particularly notable after White House spokesperson Raj Shah did not deny the "shithole" remark on Thursday evening. Associated Press White House reporter Jonathan Lemire said no one at the White House denied "that he used these vulgar terms to describe these immigrants".

President Donald Trump later admitted having used "tough language" but added that what was really tough was the "outlandish proposal" for a compromise deal of juvenile migrants (DACA) which he believes would be a step back for the United States.

The Republican president has also privately defended his remarks, saying he was only expressing what many people think but will not say about immigrants from economically depressed countries, the Associated Press reported.

But people in the Nordic nation - a year ago named the happiest place on earth - have no desire to move to the U.S., according to a report on Norwegian national TV.

Al Sharpton may have won the award for reaching the pinnacle of hypocrisy in his attack on President Trump for his now infamous "sh*thole" comment.

Democrats have dismissed Trump's denial of the offensive comments, with Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the meeting, disputing Trump's account.

"But they have no confirmation yet", Saati said. "He said these hate-filled things". Trump told senators in the Oval Office, according to a source briefed on the meeting, the comments from which were first reported by The Washington Post.

Last fall, the Department of Homeland Security canceled the Temporary Protected Status for Haitian immigrants. The 57-year-old, who founded the J/P Haitian Relief Organization and helped Haitians recover from the devastating quake that ravished the Caribbean country eight years ago, called on Americans to unite against Trump's troubling rhetoric.

Former Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe tweeted, "SHAME ON TRUMP!"

UN Spokesman Rupert Colville said Trump's comments, if confirmed, were "shocking and shameful" and opened the door to "humanity's worst side and go against universal values". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

"If you look at all we have in Africa, South Africa is one of the developed countries".
