Altidor said Foreign Affairs Minister Antonio Rodrigue told him that the USA chargé d'affaires in Haiti, Robin Diallo, had been summoned to explain the reported slur.
He added: "When the question was asked about Haitians... he said 'Haitians? He will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway". It isn't relevant in 2018, especially to the President of the United States who must act as a diplomat and must deal with the nations of the world, whose support American needs in many arenas - from cooperation on global security and energy and climate goals, to votes in the United Nations. "We even made the ultimate sacrifice when we shed our blood in Savannah".
Mr Trump's alleged comments came during an Oval Office meeting on Thursday where he questioned why America would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal. "That's all I'm gonna tell you".
When the discussion turned to African nations, the sources said Mr Trump asked why he would want "all these people from s***hole countries", adding that the U.S. should admit more people from places such as Norway, whose Prime Minister, Ms Erna Solberg, he met on Wednesday. "It is not true", Durbin said.
While Trump and his critics debate the precise language he used about Haiti in a discussion of immigration, he has shown personal enmity for the island nation's people with his administration's decision to end Temporary Protected Status for the almost 60,000 Haitians who came to the United States as a result of the quake.
On Friday morning, Trump appeared to deny he made the "shithole" comment. Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.
Meanwhile, South Africa's governing African National Congress party took to Twitter to chide Trump over his "offensive" choice of words.
"As I put the finishing touches on the travel ban brief to the Supreme Court tonight, the President's words remind us again of how his un-American racist ideology impacts policy", tweeted Neal Katyal, a lawyer on the travel ban case out of Hawaii. He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly'.
Rich people like Trump only reap the rewards of immigrants without lifting a finger to do honest work. Among many criticisms was a tweet by former Haiti prime minister Laurent Lamothe, who tweeted, "SHAME ON TRUMP!" In an editorial, the local Daily Maverick called the comments "a new low", adding, "Casual Friday at the White House is soon to include hoods and tiki torches at this rate". Can we ever forget that he was the "Leader-in-Chief" of the "birther" movement, refusing to believe that President Barack Obama was born in America, and demanding to see his birth certificate? Initial bargaining has also occurred among a separate group of four leaders - the second-ranking Republican and Democrat from both the House and Senate, a group to which both Cornyn and Durbin belong. The White House denied those comments.
