As for Africa, he asked why more people from "s-thole countries" should be allowed into the USA, the sources said. Trump was quoted as saying.

The US President reportedly used that term during a meeting in reference to people from Africa and Haiti, according to CNN. "Mr. Trump surely does not understand that what makes America Great is its diversity stemming from the immigration of the 'poor, the exhausted and the huddled masses'".

Mr Trump said the bipartisan immigration proposal is "a big step backwards" because it does not fund a wall along the Mexican border, and claimed it would force the USA "to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

Meanwhile, Democrats are condemning the remarks.

The White House did not deny Trump's purported comments when asked to comment on the story.

The Haitian government has reportedly summoned a USA official to explain why President Donald Trump used obscene language in relation to several nations, including Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries.
