Trump tweeted a convoluted denial early Friday but Democratic Senator Dick Durbin pushed back, saying the president repeatedly used the term "shithole" during a Thursday White House meeting on immigration reform.

On Friday, Trump denied describing certain nations as "s***hole countries" and that he demanded Haitians be removed from negotiations about protected status for people from certain countries.

To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning denying that he used those words.

Dick Durbin of IL confirmed Friday that President Donald Trump made vulgar comments when questioning why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s--hole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway.

The White House issued a statement on Thursday which did not dispute the allegation. "I can not believe that in the history of White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak (Thursday)".

Martin Luther King Jr.'s nephew, told CNN on Friday that while he does not believe President Donald Trump is a "racist in the traditional sense", he does think the President is "racially ignorant and racially uninformed".

Mr Trump allegedly made the comments in a meeting with United States senators on Thursday to discuss the status of people subjected to the DACA scheme - known as "Dreamers" - who came to the country illegally as children and were given protection from deportation by former president, Barack Obama.

"In relation to the deplorable expressions attributed to President Donald Trump" El Salvador's government called for "an official declaration from the United States government to clarify them or deny them", the Central American nation's foreign ministry said in a statement.

"Haitians fought along USA soldiers in the Revolutionary War and we continue to be great contributors to American society", Altidor added.

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

Altidor said Trump should apologize for any vulgarity. Made up by Dems.

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". "You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes" whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", he added.

"Let's have a Twitter war", said Joyner, a Tampa attorney, referring to the president's fondness for the social media service.

The president met with Norway's prime minister Wednesday.

The former Haitian president Laurent Lamothe expressed his dismay, saying Trump had shown "a lack of respect and ignorance". "All Americans must remember that the founding ideal of our country - E Pluribus Unum: out of many, one - has truly made America great". He added Trump's mouth was "the foulest shithole in the world".

Besides, at this point, you probably couldn't find anyone who would want to emigrate from Norway.
