Trump's health What we know so far

As the entire world now must know, Trump referred to African nations, along with El Salvador and Haiti, as "s--hole countries" in a meeting on immigration reform Thursday, and asked why the USA didn't encourage more immigration from countries like Norway, which is a majority white, European nation.

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of United States citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

In a tweet Friday, Trump denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians".

"For months, I have been involved in numerous high level bipartisan meetings negotiating DACA (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals), including Thursday's meeting at the White House".

Chicago's Haitian-American community is pushing back against President Trump's reported disparaging remarks about immigrant populations.

The president's alleged comments are being condemned by members of both parties.

A few hours earlier he wrote: "The language used by me at the Daca meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Others pointed out that when Norwegians were emigrating to the USA 100 years ago, it was to escape the war and poverty that many modern immigrants and refugees face. And to this day, as I'm talking to you, we have Haitians in universities who are professors here. Friday night in Raleigh, African immigrants had plenty to say about the president.

A fellow senator says South Carolina Sen.

Kehrnde Isa who has a masters degree and is of Nigerian origin says those who agree with President Trump's remarks are mistaken. He suggested in a statement Friday that the president had said something questionable, but Graham did not directly say Trump had used the term "sh-hole" to describe African countries.

BuzzFeed has a running list of reactions to the president's remarks from various world leaders and countries. "I want you to keep in mind this is an actual quote from the actual president of the United States".

Sean Penn is speaking out following Donald Trump's "disgraceful" comments about immigrants from Haiti and Africa.
