Trump Refers To Some Countries As 'Sh*thole' Nations

President Trump Holds Roundtable On Prison Reform In Roosevelt Room Of White House

Mr Trump said the bipartisan immigration proposal is "a big step backwards" because it does not fund a wall along the Mexican border, and claimed it would force the U.S. "to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

Several African leaders came out on Friday to decry Trump's reported comments, including the African Union (AU).

The statement came hours after first reports of Trump's use of the vulgarity in an Oval Office discussion with senators about US immigration policy.

The six senators have been meeting for months to find a way to revive protections for young immigrants who arrived in the U.S.as children and are here illegally. "He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly". The Washington Post reported that, during the meeting, Trump said immigrants from Haiti should be left out of any new agreement approved by Congress.

Mayor Catherine Pugh said she was appalled by the President's comments. "They only had their God-given strength and their determination and their courage", he said.

But of course, even if the president had a basic grasp of how immigration worked, on literally any level, that wouldn't cover up how nakedly racist this is.

In a meeting on immigration on Thursday, President Donald Trump used damning language in reference to immigrants from Africa, Haiti and other "shithole countries". Polling indicates approval of the US and its president have fallen catastrophically over the past year among citizens of other nations, and a building consensus holds that China is seizing the mantle of world leader. "No matter the colour of our skin or place of our birth we are all equal". Trump ended DACA in September, leaving around 800,000 recipients - also called DREAMers - in a state of limbo.

Mr Trump specifically questioned why the United States would want to admit more people from Haiti.

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", he said on twitter, adding that democrats had made the accusations up.

Trump's denial came among a series of other tweets in which he defended his immigration stance.

Mr. Cornyn said the real work for a bipartisan immigration deal will be achieved by a group of four leading lawmakers - the No. 2 Republicans and Democrats in both the House and Senate.

Democratic Senator Richard Durbin had just been discussing U.S. temporary residency permits granted to citizens of countries hit by natural disasters, war or epidemics, according to USA media.

"The words used by the President, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", tweeted Arizona Sen. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.

On Monday, Trump moved to end the status for immigrants from El Salvador, which could result in 200,000 Salvadorans legally in the United States being deported, beginning in September of 2019.

Specifically, lawmakers are trying to forge a compromise on the DACA programme.

Ready to brief Trump on their negotiations, Durbin and Graham traveled to the White House Thursday thinking they would be meeting privately with the President, a source familiar told CNN.

He also seemed to suggest his willingness to consider comprehensive immigration reform, something that would be welcomed by Ireland, though he appeared to step back from the comments later in the week.

It follows a handful of inflammatory comments made by Mr Trump about other countries, including Australia.
