Haitians on Friday pushed back at U.S. President Donald Trump's reported description of the Caribbean country as a "shithole", instead celebrating a history of slave revolution and resilience on the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake.

"If someone should be ashamed it should be Trump", said Michel Aubry, 38, who lost his left foot when his house collapsed during the 2010 natural disaster.

If Trump can use his vile brand of "tough language" about entire nations of people, he should be willing to listen when somebody throws words like "racist" and "ignorant" right back at him, right?

"The Republican Party is one of inclusivity and rooted in the core value of providing all people the opportunity to achieve the American dream, " Fasano said.

Or I could tell you about the singular, oppressive narrative the media trots out when talking about Haiti, the one about an island mired in poverty and misery, the one about AIDS, the one about a country plagued by natural and man-made disasters, because these are the stories people want to hear, the stories that make Haiti into a pitiable spectacle instead of the proud, complicated country it is. "They're shithole countries. We should have more people from Norway", according to one source briefed on the conversation.

In a series of Friday morning tweets, Trump said he used tough language during Thursday's meeting, but he denied using vulgarities.

"That gets on the news, it gets translated into their news, whether it's print, radio, TV - and I think it hurts", Black said.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting, disputed the president account.

Durbin said the president "said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly". He also later denied using derogatory language about Haitians.

"Not everyone who supports Trump is a racist. Never said 'take them out'".

"We have pity on (Trump) for his ignorance of what the Haitian people, the emancipated slaves, brought to humanity in terms of the experience and the determination to fight for freedom", said Gabriel Fortune, mayor of the southern city of Les Cayes.

Tweeted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive". Trump said the nation celebrates King for "standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or place of our birth, we are all created equal by God".

"Unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say", a spokesman for South Sudan told the Associated Press.

Mr Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?" The remarks were made during a discussion with USA senators about a new bipartisan immigration bill.

Independent president candidate and BYU graduate Evan McMullin harshly criticized Trump on Twitter.

President Donald Trump is "in excellent health", White House doctor Ronny Jackson said Friday after the president's first full physical exam in office.
