'Sh*thole' epithet turned immigration debate into new Trump drama

Reacting to the reports, Haiti's government said it was "profoundly outraged and shocked" over what it described as Mr Trump's "racist" comments.

Trump, who opened his presidential campaign in 2015 by calling some Mexican immigrants "rapists" and "criminals", reportedly made the remark during a meeting concerning a deal that would allow for increased security along the U.S. -Mexico border, while also allowing for the continuation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Trump spent about three hours with military doctors at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Maryland, an exam that White House doctor Ronny Jackson said went "exceptionally well".

After talking on the phone with U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday morning, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin was optimistic that a compromise deal with some Republicans to protect young "Dreamer" immigrants was on the verge of success. "Maybe, maybe not. Maybe we ought to talk it through and decide before we continue with our current immigration policy", Carlson said.

Among his objections, Mr Trump said the United States "would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

Haiti and many parts of Africa are, indeed, deeply distressed, which is why a number of people who live there seek a better life in America.

Trump on Friday denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Likewise, the Vatican described Trump's comments as "particularly harsh and offensive". Ben Cardin said Trump's "comments do not represent America's values". He tweeted Friday that he used "tough" language but "not that language", which was being taken as a denial of the "sh*thole" comment, although Mr. Trump did not specifically reference that phrase in his denial.

The African Union, an organization comprised of all 55 African nations, blasted President Donald Trump's comments that the continent contained "shithole countries."

"He used those words, and he used them repeatedly", Durbin said. "Google Abuja and find what the description of what the president says".

That deal was struck during their first official talks in more than two years amid high tensions over the North's weapons program. However because North Korea officials missed a registration deadline, Ryom and Kim's fate was now left in the hands of the IOC.

"I want a merit-based system of immigrant and people who will help take our country to the next level", Trump tweeted. "And whether you vote for me or you don't vote for me, I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion whether you vote for me or not".

The White House has not denied that Trump made any of the reported remarks.

Almost a year into Trump's presidency, members of Congress are still struggling to relate to the unorthodox Trump and his spontaneous, often crude remarks.
