I Pray Akufo-Addo Blasts Donald Trump Face-to-Face - Kabila

Donald Trump Kevin McCarthy

He has now told reporters: "I am not a racist. Our AU Presidents must respond strongly to this insult".

At an event on Friday at the White House, Mr Trump honoured the memory of Martin Luther King Jr, the civil-rights era activist who was slain in 1968.

What did the president allegedly say?

Yesterday, no White House spokesperson confirmed or deny the allegations.

In recent weeks the Trump administration has been withdrawing Temporary Protected Status (TPS) from a number of nationalities now living in the country.

Mr Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who had fled to the USA after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal.

His comments, which has been slammed by Democratic lawmakers, was first reported by The Washington Post.

Trump has admitted that his language during the meeting has harsh, but denies ever having uttered the words "shithole countries" while engaging in this political exchange.

Trump revoked that protection, which officially ends on July 22, stoking anger and anxiety in the community that was only worsened by what he reportedly said on the subject in a meeting Thursday. I don't know if they were taken - I wasn't in the room. The senators were in the Oval Office meeting where Sen.

Local congressmen decried statements attributed to President Donald Trump in which he was reported as using disparaging language to describe nations in Africa and other nations.

An alleged description of African and other countries as "shitholes" by Donald Trump prompted outrage on Friday, even as the U.S. president appeared to deny having used the specific term.

Republican Senator David Perdue, who was at the same White House meeting and had said he did not recall whether Trump made the comment, was more explicit on Sunday.

What has the reaction been?

"While expressing our shock, dismay and outrage, the African Union truly believes that there is a huge misunderstanding of the African continent and its people by the current administration".

"There is no other word one can use but racist", spokesman Rupert Colville said. You have to understand that there are countries that struggle out there.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) accused the president of falling "deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole of racism and xenophobia".

"I think it's unfair to sort of paint him, 'oh well, he's a racist, ' when I know for a fact that he cares very deeply about the people of Haiti because he helped finance a trip where they would get vision back for 200 people in Haiti", Paul said.
