United Nations condemns reported Trump remarks on 's***hole countries' as 'racist'

On Friday, Trump denied using the language, about Haiti, and tried to turn the conversation to Democrats.

The question came at a White House event honoring the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The White House has not denied the language and issued a statement. "There were witnesses. There were 12 of us in the room".

Vice President Joe Biden called out President Trump both for his words and purported beliefs following his reported comment calling countries 's***holes, ' saying 'We're better than this'. And it reopened a question for some aides toiling away by Trump's side: how do you continue to justify working for a president who appears eager to fan racial tensions, as well as America's isolation in the world? "But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith", the two senators said in their statement.

Haiti expressed its outrage Friday at reports that President Trump referred to it as a "shithole" - and summoned the top United States diplomat in the Caribbean nation for an explanation.

The White House did not initially deny the remarks but Trump later denied using the controversial words in a tweet.

Governments across Africa and around the world continue to remain silent in the face of Trump's behaviour due to the residing belief that the U.S. still has a leadership role to play.

In further emphasizing the civil rights leader's lasting impact, the president said his words and vision only grow stronger as time goes by.

'You've seen the comments in the press, ' Durbin said.

Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, called Mr Trump's comments "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful", saying his ancestors who immigrated from Ireland also faced hostilities when they arrived in America. The world is witnessing a new low today with this #S-tholeNations remark! totally unacceptable! uncalled for moreover it shows a lack a respect and IGNORANCE never seen before in the recent history of the U.S. by any President! "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel". The president and his allies have said the US should move to a "merit-based" system rather than admitting people based on family ties, referring to anyone but spouses and minor children as "extended family".

"The American ideal is embraced by people all over the globe".

At the end of the meeting, Durbin said, it was clear Trump had rejected the plan. "I don't think there's anything racist about it at all".

Trump is reacting on Twitter Friday, after reports that he questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway.
