Former President Bill Clinton responded Friday to President Trump's reported comments questioning why the USA was accepting immigrants from "s--hole" countries, allegedly made in reference to Haiti and some countries in Africa and Central America.

Trump was widely reported on Thursday to have questioned in a meeting with lawmakers why the United States would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than from places such as Norway.

In another Twitter post, the president wrote that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very troubled and poor country". He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once".

Haiti's ambassador in Washington has also asked for an apology, as Trump reportedly specifically questioned the protections granted to Haitian immigrants after the natural disaster.

Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett, reporting from Washington, DC, said: "The calls for the president to apologise for his remarks are intensifying inside and outside the U.S., but for now, that apology does not appear likely". When it comes to immigration reform and securing our borders, we have urgent and serious needs to address and many critical policies to debate.
