Pierre Labossiere was aghast when, during immigration discussions in the Oval Office Thursday, President Donald Trump questioned why the USA should admit immigrants from Haiti and Africa, calling them "shithole countries".

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Trump asked, "Why are we having all these people from s-hole countries come here?" during the lawmakers meeting at the White House.

Mr Trump has received global condemnation for his comment, one of those criticisms coming from Botswana, whose Ministry of worldwide Affairs and Cooperation called on the US's ambassador to Botswana "to express its displeasure at the alleged utterances made by the President of the U.S.".

Friday morning the president defended himself, tweeting, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Associated Press White House reporter Jonathan Lemire said no one at the White House denied "that he used these vulgar terms to describe these immigrants".

Mr Trump tweeted yesterday: "The language used by me at the Daca meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

But people in the Nordic nation - previous year named the happiest place on earth - have no desire to move to the United States, according to a report on Norwegian national TV.

Botswana also said it had summoned the usa ambassador to that country, Earl Miller, to "express its displeasure" and had asked Miller whether Botswana "is regarded as a "s**thole" country".

And Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting at the time, insisted Trump did say the words. "And he said them repeatedly".

In reaction, the AU said member states value the strategic partnership with the US and therefore, noted that there is a serious need for dialogue between the US Administration and the African countries.

The president reportedly interrupted Durbin and made a derogatory comment about those immigrants, and suggested the US should bring in more people from places like Norway. "He said these hate-filled things". I want safety and security for our people.
