U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday denied a derogatory comment that he is alleged to have made against some Central American and African countries that triggered an worldwide outrage for its racist undertones. Trump during the session with members of Congress reportedly questioned why the USA should accept more people from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa instead of from nations such as Norway.

Mr. Trump's reported remarks are the latest example of the president's use of racially tinged language about immigrants. Trump tweeted Friday morning: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Trump denied that he ever used the term "shithole countries" to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, though he admitted using "tough" language in the meeting.

As President Trump has cracked down on illegal immigration and reportedly disparaged the "shithole" countries immigrants leave, there's at least one place from which he'd like more immigration: Norway.

The Vatican newspaper on Friday branded US President Donald Trump's reported comments about African countries and Haiti as "particularly harsh and offensive".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

"In addition to being insulting to us, more importantly it's quite disrespectful and insulting to the people that we're trying to help and the friends and colleagues that we've made there over the last eight years", Furey said in an interview. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, said. I want safety and security for our people.

Just before Christmas, a New York Times report emerged alleging that Trump had said people from Haiti "all have AIDS", that Nigerians all live in huts and that Afghanistan is full of terrorists.

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", the president said. JB Pritzker, a Democrat running for IL governor, released the following statement Friday: "I've said it before and I'll say it again: Donald Trump is a racist and a xenophobe who has never had the dignity to be in the White House", said JB Pritzker.

"But we've got this flexible definition about what a racist is". I will not be diverted from all possible efforts to continue negotiating to stop the deportations. Macky Sall, president of Senegal, tweeted Friday he was "shocked" by Trump's words, adding that "Africa and the black race deserve the respect and consideration of all".
