Trump defends self after comments, says

How much of Mr Trump's health information is released to the public is up to the president, but Ms Sanders said she expects the White House to release the same kind of details past presidents have made public. "That is all I have to say", Kenyan entrepreneur Wangui Muraguri told the AP in response to Trump. "And you can't have an immigration compromise if everybody's out there calling the president a racist".

"Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat at Thursday's meeting, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.

Botswana's government called Trump's comment "reprehensible and racist", saying the USA ambassador had been summoned to clarify whether the country was regarded so poorly after years of cordial relations.

But Senator Dick Durbin stood by claims, and said that Mr Trump had used "hate-filled, vile and racist" language during the meeting.

"He said these hateful things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said. The meeting revolved around a bipartisan proposal to restore protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries as part of a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level. "Hopefully it's all going to work out", said Trump.

Trump's father, Fred, developed Alzheimer's in his 80s, a fact that has prompted calls for the president to undergo a significant neurological exam. That's because 60 votes will be needed to avoid a filibuster and Republicans have a narrow 51-49 majority.

The examination on Friday coincided with swirling questions about Mr Trump's physical and medical fitness for office.

He also said: "Sadly, Democrats want to stop paying our troops and government workers in order to give a sweetheart deal, not a fair deal, for DACA".

The administration announced previous year that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 Haitians to live and work in the US following a devastating 2010 natural disaster. "Ours is not a shithole country, neither is Haiti or any other country in distress, " said Jesse Duarte, the ANC's Deputy Secretary-General.

Others said they thought Trump had a point, in a way.

None more so than from the (AU), which said it was "frankly alarmed" by the President's statement before addressing America's dark history in relation to the continent. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

King's son, Martin Luther King III, met with Trump on the last King holiday, four days before Trump took office.

Sens. David Perdue, R-Ga., and Tom Cotton, R-Ark., who attended Thursday's meeting, issued a statement saying they "do not recall the president saying these comments specifically". "Congress must prove that America's founding values and principles are more than words by repudiating the President's disgusting remarks and passing bipartisan legislation now to protect Dreamers and families covered by Temporary Protected Status".
