He has characterized Mexican immigrants as "rapists", repeatedly questioned the loyalty of Muslim immigrants, denounced NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem in protest at police brutality against African Americans, and made questionable comments about a violent white supremacist rally. In exchange for an increase in border security funding, the group had agreed to a plan that would give DACA participants a 10- to 12-year path to citizenship and even find protections for individuals with Temporary Protected Status from countries like El Salvador and Haiti.

President Donald Trump on Friday said the language he used during the meeting on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was "tough" but he didn't use the infamous "shithole countries" term.

"Ours is not a shithole country, neither is Haiti or any other country in distress", said Duarte.

"President Donald Trump is absolutely right". It is disparaging to people in the United States who are from these countries.

"You know what I'm saying?" This has been taken as Trump's admission that he wants white immigrants instead of dark-skinned ones. "Norwegian people? People with blonde hair who need a lot of sunscreen. I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist". There are also proposals, supported by the president, to eliminate the visa lottery.

Another black lawmaker, Cedric Richmond, a Democrat, said the comments were "further proof that his Make America Great Again agenda is really a Make America White Again agenda". President Obama, whose father was from Kenya, has not responded.

Editor's note: NPR has decided in this case to spell out the vulgar word that the president reportedly used because it meets our standard for use of offensive language. We have a long history of people thriving here who've come from dirt-poor countries or ugly dictatorships.

"I took this so personally". I know I sound insane. "If he said it, he has to apologize, but if he did not say it, I think The Washington Post should apologize".

An bad lot of immigrants come to this country from places that aren't very nice.

Trump was quoted in the Washington Post as having said: 'Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?' during a discussion about immigration.

The African nation said it had accepted USA citizens over the years, including senior government officials, which is "why we view the utterances by the current American President as highly irresponsible, reprehensible, and racist". "On Twitter this morning, he did something very, very Trumpy".

But in another tweet on Friday the president denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians".

"President Trump brought everyone to the table this week and listened to both sides. The same poll that he tweeted!" They also happen to have universal healthcare, school paid parental leave, all the things the United States won't guarantee for our citizens, so I doubt we're gonna get any of them coming over here.

"So if you say Norway is a better place to live and Haiti is kind of a hole, well anyone who's been to those countries or has lived in them would agree".
