You are only making America white again - Mahama jabs Trump

But Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who was reportedly at the meeting said the United States president used "shitholes" in the context of African countries.

The president did take to Twitter at 7:28 a.m. Friday, denying using the reported language. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

The Botswana government summoned its US ambassador "to clarify whether Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country," The Washington Post reported.

During the signing Trump, accompanied by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and King's nephew Isaac Newton Farris in the White House, praised the civil rights icon's "faith and love for humanity".

Haiti summoned the top U.S. diplomat in the country for an explanation on Friday following reports that U.S. President Donald Trump had called the Caribbean nation a "shithole", and requested an apology if the vulgar term had been used.

The remarks came after a conversation about protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations.

Also Friday, the House's leadership rejected Trump's comments-if they're true, they said.

Meanwhile, South Africa's governing African National Congress party took to Twitter to chide Trump over his "offensive" choice of words. Someone else in the room responded: “Because if you do, it will be obvious why.

Graham also praised Durbin for his statement - and he has "enjoyed working with him and many others on this important issue".

Durbin said when the issue of Temporary Protective Status (TPS) for Haitian immigrants in the USA was raised, the president responded "Haitians. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians!" he posted.

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin told reporters on Friday.

"People have come to this country from everywhere, and people from everywhere have made America great", McCain said in a statement. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he added. Do we need more Haitians?' And then he went on when we started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure. The African Union said it was "frankly alarmed" and the United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said the comments, "I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist". "We should have more people from places like Norway".

Rep. Mia Love, a Utah Republican whose family comes from Haiti, called on the president to apologize for his "divisive" and "elitist" comments. Trump was reported to have said in an Oval Office meeting on immigration reform, according to two people who spoke with the Washington Post. "He said these hateful things and he said them repeatedly".

"Mr Trump may say what he pleases, but I am proud of being Haitian".
