"But what I can say is that UNHCR's position is always that people forced to flee war or persecution, and needing asylum, should be given protection by whichever country they are in, irrespective of race, religion, ethnicity or place or country of origin", he said.

According to a CNN employee, there was no all-staff memo distributed about the network's "shithole" coverage.

On Friday, the president tweeted that his language was "tough" but insisted he didn't say anything derogatory about Haitians aside from noting Haiti is a poor country.

It was initially believed the president also called Haiti and El Salvador, countries also discussed during that meeting, "sh*thole countries".

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren called Trump's comments racist, vile and disgusting in a Facebook post Friday and took the opportunity to talk about a child who was in Haiti when the quake it.

President Donald Trump has expressed frustration over efforts of some USA lawmakers to protect immigrants from Haiti and African countries, asking why America should accept citizens from "s***thole" countries, triggering protests.

It is alleged Trump questioned why the United States would accept more people from Haiti and "sh**hole countries".




Former president John Mahama has slammed controversial US President Donald Trump for describing African countries as shitholes. And I think that any person who claims to have an absolute wonderful relationship with Haitians would know better than to suggest any kind of comment that would result in Haitians leaving this country.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

On "The Situation Room" Friday, Ryan cited an unnamed "influencer" and "child and product of the sixties" who advocated that anti-Trump activists call various companies and talk about Trump's comments. He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly'. "Not just once but repeatedly".

She described the United States as "a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity".

His press office characterized his statement as being about "DACA" rather than about Trump, indicating Graham's desire not to fan the flames more than necessary.

"The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards". "[The border wall] was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly". When Haitians' protected status came up, Durbin said Trump responded "Haitians?" But more than anything else for those not bothered by a long trail of hateful, despicable comments by Donald Trump is the simple fact, we once again, are witnessing another episode of the Trump administration and President Donald Trump, lying. He said, "I will not be diverted from all possible efforts to continue negotiating to stop the deportations".
