Maine's congressional delegation denounces Trump's reported vulgar remarks

But neither the USA president nor the White House disputed the most controversial of his remarks in which he used the word "shithole" to describe African nations and said he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead. Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin of IL, who was in the meeting, reconfirmed Friday that Trump repeatedly "said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist".

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin told reporters on Friday.

"It might happen once or twice without CNN executives being aware, but it wouldn't continue if they were not OK", former CNN executive Jon Klein said.

Trump denied the racist remarks, tweeting on Friday that the language he used "was tough, but this was not the language used", as he called for a "merit-based system of immigration and people who take our country to the next level".

Trump also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!", the President tweeted.

The Washington Post reported that Trump made the comment during an Oval Office meeting with immigration negotiators including Sens.

Mr Trump reportedly said: "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" The Dems will threaten "shutdown", but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. The explosive remarks came during a conversation about the visa lottery program, which benefits some African countries, and about the temporary protected status given to immigrants from certain nations, including El Salvador and Haiti. Raoul, a state senator whose parents are Haitian immigrants, said Trump needed to "learn his history" about America and said Haiti "broke the shackles and started the freedom ball rolling in the Western hemisphere". Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), told MSNBC that Graham confronted Trump on his remarks.

Two days after President Donald Trump described African nations, along with Haiti and El Salvador, as "shithole countries" with undesirable emigrants for the United States, the president of Ghana called the language "extremely unfortunate" and said his nation was not a "shithole country". "President Donald Trump IS a racist", Levin added.

Lewis also said during the interview that he will not be attending President Trump's first State of the Union address later this month, making him the second Democratic congressman to boycott the annual address.

The statement the African ambassadors issued expresses concern over the Trump administration's apparent increasing denigration of Africa "and people of color".

In response, the White House defended Trump's position on immigration. I want safety and security for our people.

Q. "If [President Trump] did in fact say what's being alleged, how would that stack up against... incendiary comments that other presidents have made?" They are not presidential, they undermine USA foreign relations and they do not reflect Americas values.
