Donald Trump faces criticism after reports of Oval Office outburst about immigration

As per The Washington Post, two sources briefed on the conversation say that during the portion of the conversation about Haiti - which came at the top of the exchange that led to the "shithole" comment - the president questioned why Haitians should be given specific consideration.

According to the Post, Trump's comments left some lawmakers in the room shocked, including Sen. "Because not only does he think brown countries are shitholes, he thinks, what, we're never going to know what he said?".

The Trump Administration announced late a year ago that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 citizens from Haiti to live and work in the United States after a devastating 2010 quake.

Trump has signaled he would sign a bill to protect 800,000 undocumented immigrants who entered the country as children, known as "DREAMers, but only if it included funding for a wall along the U.S".

A White House spokesman defended Trump's position on immigration without directly addressing Trump's remarks. "The people of Haiti have been through more, they've withstood more, they've fought back against more injustice than our president ever has", Cooper said.

"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", Katyal said. Senators Lindsey Graham and Richard J. Durbin later proposed slashing the visa lottery program by 50 percent, the Post reported.

The White House issued a statement Thursday that did not deny the remarks.

CNN news host Anderson Cooper gave an emotional send-off to the people of Haiti in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's comments on immigration from what he called "shithole" countries. We saw some of this already last December, when he allegedly said that all Haitians have AIDS, but the White House quickly came to his defense and denied it ever happened.

Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez said in a statement: "As an American, I am ashamed of the President. We need it! Get smart!" he wrote.

Political commentators and members of the Congressional Black Caucus pointed out that Trump's comments denigrated majority-black nations and expressed a preference for the majority-white Norway.

Shah added: "He will always reject temporary, weak and risky 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".

Donald Trump speaking at the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Maryland.

Journalist Dan Rather called the comment a "new low" and "disgraceful for him, the country, and every American".

"For the President of the United States to believe that Haitians have not contributed extraordinarily things to American society, that is ignorant", said Cooper, earlier in the program.
