'Sh*thole' epithet turned immigration debate into new Trump drama

Ghana's president Nana Akufo-Addo called Mr Trump's remark "extremely unfortunate", and said that "we will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful".

President Donald Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as "shithole countries" in an immigration meeting Thursday, lawmakers have said.

Shortly after, he tweeted "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". It´s about opening the door wider to humanity´s worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia that will potentially disrupt and destroy the lives of many people.

CBS News reports that the Haitian government promptly summoned charge d'affairs Robin Diallo, the top USA diplomat in the country, to respond to the comments.

Immigration legislation has become time-sensitive because when Trump ended the DACA program in September he gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative solution before announcing that deportations would begin.

He doesn't deny that Trump possibly used the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and Africa, but he believes it's been taken out of context.

Cuba's Foreign Ministry "strongly" condemned Friday night the "racist, denigrating and gross" statements by U.S. President Donald Trump on Haiti, El Salvador and African states. He pointed to Trump's 2015 comments on Mexican immigrants, who Trump said are "rapists" and bringing drugs and crimes to the U.S. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

Trump denies using the term.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.
