Donald Trump's 'shithole' remark: How some United States media handled president's comment

That wasn't the only thing Trump said that was offensive, Durbin told reporters today (Jan. 12). "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" the president tweeted.

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

Ryan has clashed with the Trump administration before - in May, then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer scolded her, "please stop shaking your head", as he answered one of her questions.

Republican Senators David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who both attended the meeting, said in a statement they did not "recall the president saying these comments specifically".

Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat from IL, was in the room when Donald Trump described African nations as "shithole" countries.

The government said Trump should apologize if he made such comments, and summoned the top USA diplomat in the country for an explanation. Never said "take them out". Someone else in the room responded: “Because if you do, it will be obvious why.

Earlier, the government of Botswana had announced that it had summoned the United States ambassador to explain Trump's comments, reportedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting on immigration.

Haitians on Friday pushed back at US President Donald Trump's reported description of the Caribbean country as a "sh*thole", instead celebrating a history of slave revolution and resilience on the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster. According to Farris Jr., Trump assured them that "I am not the person that the media is making me out to be". Trump went on to remark: "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

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

The President has since denied the comments; however, following Trump's denial, Sen. "It's more his racist views that dictate who should come to America and who shouldn't".

"That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from 'shitholes, ' senator Dick Durbin told MSNBC".

Referring to the temporary protected status program, Trump said: "Why do we need more Haitians?".

"President Trump has been and is a racist".

US President Donald Trump denied Friday making "derogatory" comments about the people of Haiti, one of several places he was quoted as describing as "shithole countries" in remarks that triggered global outrage. He added Trump's mouth was "the foulest shithole in the world".
