Three weeks ago, the New York Times reported that President Trump had said something hugely offensive about Haitians - that they "all have AIDS" - in a June meeting about immigration.

Trump previous year ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provided protection from deportation along with the ability to work legally in the U.S. He gave Congress until March to come up with a legislative fix.

"We've got a long ways to go", Short said. The people were not authorized to describe the conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"He (Trump) will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway", the statement added.

I will give them better."Trump's comments on the campaign trail are in direct contrast to his remarks Thursday, when he decried the migration of citizens from "shithole countries" referring to Haiti and African nations, sources told the CNN".

"He continued: ".countries which are doing badly.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far.

The president also suggested it would be more acceptable to bring in more people from countries like Norway.

Hilde Restad, a university associate professor in worldwide studies, says Trump has achieved the unlikely feat of praising Norway while still offending its citizens. "But in general we are not wanting to be flattered by this USA president in this way".

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), one of the lawmakers present for the immigration meeting with the president, condemned Trump's "hate-filled, vile, and racist" comments, adding that he had not seen any reports in the press that were "inaccurate".

A statement by the southern African nation says the US ambassador has been summoned.

This was part of a lengthy statement that did not directly dispute the language reportedly used in the meeting, NBC stated.

Other African nations have begun speaking up.

Uganda's state minister for worldwide relations, Henry Okello Oryem, calls Trump's remarks "unfortunate and regrettable". "There is unemployment in the US, there are people who don't have healthcare services", Duarte told reporters. Uganda's state minister for worldwide relations, Henry Okello Oryem, called the remarks "unfortunate and regrettable" and hoped that heads of state will reply at an African Union summit later this month.

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes" whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", Colville said.

"There is no other word one can use but "racist", United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva when asked about the reported comments.

Mr Trump's reported remarks were remarkable even by the standards of a president who has been accused by his foes of racist attitudes and has routinely smashed through public decorum that his modern predecessors have generally embraced.

Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, said Trump's comments were "unkind, divisive, elitist and fly in the face of our nation's values".

The US President made the comment during a meeting with congressional leaders in the Oval Office on Thursday, according to US media.

Without directly referring to Trump's statement, it tweeted that "US remains committed to working together w/Africans to realize the promise of a more peaceful, more productive, more prosperous 21st century Africa".

Did you get your ticket? " 'Black Panther' is riding an incredible wave of momentum right now", said Fandango editor Erik Davis. You might want to circle a date, and soon, because this one will be playing to packed houses for at least its opening weekend.

"Why do we want all these people from "shithole countries" coming here?"

South African opposition leader Mmusi Maimane called the comments "abhorrent", adding: "The hatred of (Barack) Obama's roots now extends to an entire continent".

"It's not as if the United States doesn't have problems".

The president's comments immediately sparked outrage, especially from critics in Florida, which is home to more Haiti-born residents than any other state.

In fact, the wild day at the White House showing the impulsive and prejudiced sides of his character probably more accurately reflects who Trump really is than the staged, reality show-style meeting on immigration he convened Tuesday.

Using vulgar language, Trump on Thursday questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s-thole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway in rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal, a Democratic aide briefed on Thursday's meeting told NBC News. "These are human beings, not commodities", Colville said. It's not what people expected.

President Donald Trump's dismissal of Haiti and certain African countries with a vulgar expression has created a furor.

African governments quickly found themselves in an awkward position. As top recipients of United States aid, some hesitated to jeopardise it by criticising Mr Trump, especially as his administration has sought to slash foreign assistance.

In South Sudan, government spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny says that "unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say".
