At a meeting discussing immigration with U.S. Senators, Trump referred to developing nations with brown-skinned citizens as "shithole countries", according to multiple sources.

The U.S. leader has been under fire at home and overseas after he reportedly referred to Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries" during a meeting on an immigration deal with a group of bipartisan lawmakers at the White House on Thursday.

The White House denied that the president made those remarks. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

Is Oprah Winfrey 'actively thinking' about running for president of the USA?
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders was also drawn into the speculation on Tuesday about a potential Winfrey candidacy. The President will have surprised few observers with his predicted outcome of any future White House race against Ms Winfrey.

When asked about the comments directly, President Trump had no comment. "I use those words advisedly". They don't blink. They stand tall and they have dignity. "We, along with the President, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades".

In a statement seen by Tuko.co.ke on Saturday, January 13, Odinga termed Trump's comments as unfortunate and troubling.

"On this day, we should be recognising their grace, courage, loss, hardship and heroism", the actor wrote in Time.

To no surprise president started tweeting this morning denying that he used those words. It is not true. "The largest group's El Salvadoran, the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian". He tweeted, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough but this was not the language used. Do we need more Haitians?'"

Trump tweets: Language over DACA rejection was 'tough' but not vulgar
The truth is, the wall has become a shiny object that distracts partisans from what they claim to want in the immigration debate. The White House issued a statement rejecting "weak and unsafe stopgap measures" on immigration but did not deny Trump's remarks.

That was the nature of this conversation.

The doctor who conducted President Donald Trump's annual check-up said Friday the president was in "excellent health" and his physical exam earlier in the afternoon "went exceptionally well". They look you in the eye.

"We were hoping for that, but the president is not prepared to do that at this moment", Durbin said.

Anthony Scaramucci, whose brief tenure as White House communications director ended shortly after his expletive-filled comments about his administration colleagues appeared in The New Yorker, said Trump "is not a racist".

Ibe Kachikwu, on Thursday described as shameful Nigeria's inability to refine its crude oil. The source said that: "The discussion was how to make the fuel available nationwide".

Mr Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who had fled to the United States after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal.
