Rep. Mia Love demands Trump apologize for vulgar remark about Haiti

"Take them out." The White House did not deny the remarks in a statement on Thursday evening while it reiterated the President's immigration agenda.

Trump said on Twitter Friday that his language during the meeting was "tough", but "this was not the language used".

Despite the criticism, the White House did not walk back the president's remarks.

In the White House, a bipartisan group of senators Thursday presented an agreement that would grant protected status to the "dreamers" who were brought here illegally as children, pump more money into border security, tweak family-based immigration, and end the "Diversity Visa Lottery Program", which distributes visas to countries with historically low immigration rates, many in Africa and Central Asia, channeling those visas to some USA residents with Temporary Protected Status from countries like El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Haiti, a program Trump is rolling back.

It's certainly true that, for many people, Trump's willingness to say whatever he wants is appealing, granted that the things he wants to say often jibe with the things they want to hear.

Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable", telling WPLG-TV in Miami that "if that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it".

Trump later claimed he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians" and got some cover from Republican Sens.

"Made up by Dems", he tweeted. Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Haiti, which on Friday marked the eighth anniversary of the disastrous quake which claimed around 220,000 lives, also summoned the USA representative for an explanation.

In an earlier tweet on Friday, Mr. Trump said, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

El Salvador slammed them as "deplorable".

Consider the particulars of the current immigration talks, and Trump's response to them.

United States missions went into damage control mode.

There's no rational case to be made for calling an entire continent and two countries neighboring the United States "shitholes".

In a statement Friday, conservative Republican Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia had a different take on the previous day's meeting. Do you print what the president said in a headline?

This is not what Trump said, of course.

Hillary Clinton hit back at her former political opponent Donald Trump, accusing the man who beat her of holding "ignorant, racist" views.

US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said: "The first thing that came to mind was very unfortunate and unhelpful". The Associated Press stylebook (which Gambit and many other newspapers use as a baseline standard) is clear on the subject: obscenities, profanities, vulgarities: Do not use them in stories unless they are part of direct quotations and there is a compelling reason for them.

In an oddly-timed coincidence, the U.S. president on Friday signed a declaration honoring slain civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr, three days before the federal holiday celebrated in his honor.

"This is even more hurtful given the historical reality of just how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, and also terribly surprising as the United States remains a massively positive example as just how migration can give birth to a nation", Kalondo said.

Trump has repeatedly expressed interest in restricting immigration levels.

Trump is now negotiating with congressional lawmakers over how to help so-called Dreamers, young undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S.as children. "I don't think it makes it impossible, but I suspect the Democrats are sitting there going, 'Why would we want to compromise with him on anything?'"
