When Trump said he wanted fewer immigrants coming to the US from Haiti, El Salvador or the entire continent of Africa, and more from places like Norway, he was saying exactly that and nothing more, his supporters argue.
His remarks reportedly left the assembled politicians "taken aback", the paper said, with Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator for SC, and Richard Durbin, Democratic senator for IL, among those in the room.
A prominent evangelical supporter of President Donald Trump's is standing by him after Trump used a vulgarity to describe African countries. That, too, because recent immigrants are more likely to come from Asian or Latin American countries.
Undersecretary of State Steve Goldstein, in charge of USA public diplomacy, said Mr Trump has the right to "make whatever remark he chooses", calling it the benefit of being president.
Today, as you doubtless heard, during immigration talks, he said, President Trump said something that nearly every single person in America actually agrees with - an terrible lot of immigrants come to this country from other places that arent very nice..
Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.
He ignores the triumphs of immigrants who came from these countries. "He should act accordingly and conduct himself in a more diplomatic manner", said Haitian immigrant Nicolle Saitlious.
Now Haitians and other immigrants are urging compassion from the U.S. leader.
Although there is evidence that a family-based system of immigration provides a number of benefits to the USA, that's really beside the point: Trump didn't argue for a policy that gives preference to doctors or other high-skilled workers.
"The relationship between the two countries has been strengthened by the fact that millions of sons and daughters of Haiti have contributed and will continue to contribute to the prosperity and greatness of America", it said.
The President has since denied the comments; however, following Trump's denial, Sen. It's a middle finger to s--hole countries, but more to the point, it's a statement that we don't want the people from them.
Clinton piled on, bringing up the anniversary of the devastating quake that struck Haiti in 2010 and using it as a club to hit at her former rival.
And in the aftermath of revelations that Trump had referred to African countries and Haiti as "shitholes" on Thursday, they quickly offered rationalizations.
Jack Davidson, executive director of the American Haitian Foundation, said Trump's latest comment was "ignorant [and] racist with a complete disregard for the human dignity of the Haitian people".
Jeffress said Trump got the "sentiment" correct and he was "right on target" by questioning why the US accepts immigrants from those countries during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers.
But you know what? Watters went on to say.
The comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behavior and practice", said Ebba Kalondo, spokesperson for AU chief Moussa Faki.
"As someone from South Shithole, Trevor is deeply offended by the president's remarks", The Daily Show tweeted of its South African-born host, Trevor Noah. She says many may think Haitian refugees are poor and uneducated, but she says both her daughter and her husband have Ph. Espaillat immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic, located next to Haiti on the island of Hispaniola. "We're better than this", Biden wrote.
Graham didn't specifically refer to those remarks, but said that he said his "piece directly" to the president after his comments during the meeting.
