"When it came to the issue of 'chain migration, ' I said to the president, 'Do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?' African Americans believe that they migrated to America in chains". She said asking if Trump is racist is not enough, that people need to do something that will have an "economic impact".

The scandal erupted after Donald Trump wondered why the United States would want to have immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, referring to some as "shithole countries", and suggested America should welcome more people from nations like Norway instead.

"Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country", he tweeted. Trump questioned why the US should accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa over places like Norway. Situations like this are undermining the United States' credibility around the world, alternately making it a laughing stock or a pariah.

"If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".

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

President Trump is drawing an angry response, after using an expletive to describe the countries that many immigrants in the USA came from. On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that his "language was tough" but "this was not the language used".

"I just don't have to agree with it", Nakpodia said.

"Haitians don't deserve such treatment", said Ambassador Paul Altidor.

Graham continued in his statement: 'The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it'. Trump denies using the word "shithole" including towards Haiti, which is marking the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake.

"I do appreciate their support and I'd like to continue their support and not be distracted by any false messages that can be propagated about Haitian people", he said.

I am shocked by the words of President Trump on Haiti and Africa. He said that the first thing that came to mind is it's "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

Those in the Cabinet Room when Trump made his comments, according to The New York Times, included Sens.

During the same period, the regulator reduced the domestic interconnect charges to 14 paise per minute from 20 paise per minute. The incumbent carriers always favoured hiking worldwide calling rates to Rs 1 initially and Rs 3.50 later on.

"The statement that he made is not from the entire America, it is from only one person", Charitable said.

The White House has not denied the language, nor have the several Republican lawmakers in the meeting. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

"It takes a toll on us right now and to be in this kind of dark place to know what the next step is", Castor said.

The comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behavior and practice", said Ebba Kalondo, spokesperson for AU chief Moussa Faki.

"I don't think that he will acknowledge that he said it, let alone apologize for it", Doron said. It is reassuring that Florida Republicans such as Gov. Rick Scott, former Gov. Jeb Bush, members of Congress and state legislators directly denounced and rejected the presidents language.
