Amid global outrage, Trump denies 'shithole' remarks

Haiti expressed its outrage Friday at reports that President Trump referred to it as a "shithole" - and summoned the top USA diplomat in the Caribbean nation for an explanation.

Sundrop Carter, of the Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition, says there's a way to show they disagree with the president.

"I think there is blame on both sides", Trump said.

Altidor said Foreign Affairs Minister Antonio Rodrigue told him that the United States chargé d'affaires in Haiti, Robin Diallo, had been summoned to explain the reported slur.

Durbin said that when the question was asked about Haitians at the meeting, the president said, "Hatians?"

Earlier this week, the USA announced that it is rescinding Temporary Protected Status for around 200,000 Salvadorans in the United States that lets them live and work legally in the country. Its slave revolution, she notes, was so influential that the United States waited almost 50 years to recognize Haiti's 1804 independence, fearing a contagion that would inspire American slaves to rise up to an even greater degree. "We even made the ultimate sacrifice when we shed our blood in Savannah".

Using vulgar language, Trump on Thursday questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and shithole countries in Africa rather than places like Norway in rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal.

On Friday, Trump denied using the language, about Haiti, and tried to turn the conversation to Democrats.

The fallout over Trump's reported comments at Thursday's meeting has been swift.

The President, who has since denied he used a slur to describe Haiti and Africa, reportedly contrasted undeserving Haitians seeking American refuge with Norwegian immigrants - whose skin color presumably makes them the kind of immigrants more likely to Make America Great Again. "Period", he said, before refusing to answer questions from reporters.

Over Twitter, Trump claimed that Haiti was a "very poor and troubled country", but that he had never "said anything derogatory" about it.

Meanwhile, the African Union said it was "frankly alarmed" by Trump's statement. "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems".

Leanne Manas, a news anchor for the South African Broadcasting Corporation, tweeted Friday morning, "Good morning from the greatest most handsome "s-thole country" in the world!"

Others condemned the US president's comments as inappropriate or racist.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) was not among the lawmakers in the White House meeting, but tweeted Friday that he heard about Trump's comments "directly following the meeting by those in attendance". The president and his allies have said the US should move to a "merit-based" system rather than admitting people based on family ties, referring to anyone but spouses and minor children as "extended family".

Trump's defenders are suggesting the comments, made in private, simply reflect a salty iteration of his America First platform, that Trump merely means to champion a merit-based system for allowing in new immigrants.

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.

Djenane Gourgue, of the Haitian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida, says she is not letting Trump's remarks affect her anymore, adding "his actions can probably hurt more". We all know conditions could be improved in countries in Africa and the nations of El Salvador and Haiti. The White House denied those comments.
