Paul Ryan says Trump's slur against African countries is 'unfortunate, unhelpful'

Liberal MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes, a parliamentary secretary to the minister of worldwide development, did respond to reports of Trump's comments on Thursday evening.

"I think that I will take this opportunity not just as prime minister but as the proud MP for Papineau, which has a strong and vibrant Haitian community, to highlight that today is the eighth anniversary of a bad quake that caused devastation not just on the Island but across the diaspora in North America", Trudeau said in London, Ont., where the federal cabinet was meeting. Do we need more Haitians?' And then he went on when we started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure.

Trump had questioned why the United States would want to accept immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as "shithole countries", according to two sources familiar with the comments.

Trump did not respond to several questions about the incident, including whether he actually used vulgar language to describe African nations, or if he is racist. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made".

Durbin said "shitholes" was "the exact word used by the president not just once but repeatedly".

That was the nature of this conversation.

"We're going to have - more than a signal - we're going to have a very clear message this is something he'd support, that he'd sign", Cornyn said. "Made up by Dems", Trump wrote.

Trump also denied saying "anything derogatory" about Haitians. There is no transcript or recording of that meeting.

When told that Trump denied making the remarks, Durbin said: "It speaks for itself".

Trump's comments added uncertainty to already contentious talks about legislation to shield hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation and boost border security measures. Trump said, according to media accounts and Democratic Sen.

As Breitbart News reported, five years of chain migration to the US adds more people to the country than one year of American births. Trump met this week with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

The White House has not denied the language used at the Thursday meeting on immigration.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", he said. Trump's remarks were remarkable even by the standards of a president who has been accused of racism by his foes and who has routinely smashed through public decorum that his modern predecessors have generally embraced.

But Trump on Friday insisted the reports were inaccurate.

Whoopi Goldberg said she could have possibly overlooked his remarks if he hadn't also said the United States needs more people from Norway.

Jean, who was born in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince and is now secretary general of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie, called Trump's reported remarks "insulting".

The African nation said it had accepted U.S. citizens over the years, including senior government officials, which is "why we view the utterances by the current American President as highly irresponsible, reprehensible, and racist".

Among other objections, Trump said the plan did not provide proper funding for the proposed wall that he made a center-piece of his election campaign.
