Trump's Reported Expletive Hits Home for Connecticut Immigrants

He called King a "great American hero". Former VP Joe Biden also had choice words about Trump's language, tweeting, "It's not what a president should believe".

"We view the utterances by the current American President as highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist", the government in Gaborone added.

"For the first representative of the United States of America to speak in such a manner is quite troubling and offensive", Jean said in the statement.

"I think it was stupid and irresponsible and childish", said Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho.

President Trump said, before suggesting that the US should have more people coming in from countries such as Norway, according to sources who spoke with The Washington Post.

Trump attracted worldwide condemnation for comments made while discussing a bipartisan immigration deal during a meeting on January 11, reports The Guardian.

"Senator Perdue does not recall the president saying that and the president addressed this himself this morning", said his office's statement. For instance, in June, according to the New York Times, he said Haitians "all have AIDS".

The United Nations (UN) in a strongly-worded statement said the USA president's remark was purely racist, while the Vatican has described it as offensive.

"Trump denied saying anything derogatory about Haitians".

Trump is reacting on Twitter Friday, after reports that he questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway.

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

Rebecca Black, an immigration lawyer in Jacksonville, said the city has immigrants from all over the world, and they are closely watching the DACA issue.

The African Union said Friday that President Donald Trump's reported description of African nations as "sh*hole countries" broke with "accepted behaviour" and was "extremely upsetting".

Asked about the remarks on Thursday, White House spokesman Raj Shah did not deny them.

Trump also reportedly followed up the remark by asking why "people from countries like Norway" don't migrate as much to the U.S.

'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used, ' he said. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA". She called on Mr Trump to apologise to the American people and to the countries he denigrated.

Journalist Yamiche Alcindor spoke directly with Haiti's ambassador to the U.S., Paul Altidor.

On the streets of Lusaka, capital of the southern African country of Zambia, Trump's reported remark reinforced long-held views about the US leader.

Trump told lawmakers that the us should instead seek out more immigrants from countries like Norway.

Or I could tell you about the singular, oppressive narrative the media trots out when talking about Haiti, the one about an island mired in poverty and misery, the one about AIDS, the one about a country plagued by natural and man-made disasters, because these are the stories people want to hear, the stories that make Haiti into a pitiable spectacle instead of the proud, complicated country it is. "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?" In the article about Trump's comments, on today's front page of the P-G, the words "shithole countries" aren't found until the fifth paragraph inside the paper.

Overshadowing the event was mounting backlash from Trump's comments during a private meeting with lawmakers the day before. That's according to three people who were briefed on the conversation but weren't authorized to describe it publicly.

The president then joined the group in the Oval Office, and Durbin and Graham made their pitch on a plan they had worked on for four months - a solution for 700,000 Dreamers who would otherwise lose protection from deportation on March 5.
