Trump denies he used vulgarity about Africa

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here", Trump reportedly said.

"Diversity has always been our strength, not our weakness", Graham said. "In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals". Trump said at a White House meeting Tuesday that he would sign what Congress sent him and was leaving it up to lawmakers to hash out details.

U.S. diplomats serving in Haiti and African countries have been briefed to convey Washington's respect if they are summoned to explain President Donald Trump's alleged insults.

Trump said on Twitter Friday that his language during the meeting was "tough", but "this was not the language used".

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, that has protected them from deportation following the 2010 quake, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month.

"In the course of his comments, said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist".

The African Union said in its statement that while it condemn Trump's remark, maintaining a dialogue with the president was necessary to help him better understand their continent.

He also said he appreciated Durbin's statements, and he remains committed to a bipartisan solution to keep Dreamers in the country.

"(Graham) spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said", Durbin told reporters.

But instead of winning Trump's support, as they had expected, the president launched into a broadside against immigration from Haiti and Africa. "Haitians should not be seen as a bunch of immigrants who come to the United States to exploit U.S. resources".

"If any country asks our charge or our ambassador to come over, they will. He used those words", Durbin said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday called President Donald Trump's comments on immigration "unhelpful", in his first public reaction to news that Trump referred to African nations as "shithole" countries. "Made up by Dems", Trump wrote.

Trump has categorically denied using the term, tweeting on Friday: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

In a statement it said it had asked the USA government, through its ambassador, to "clarify" if the derogatory remark also applied to Botswana given that there were Botswana nationals living in the United States and others who wished to go there.

A prominent evangelical supporter of President Donald Trump's is standing by him after Trump used a vulgarity to describe African countries. "They are incensed. They don't understand".

Ryan said his ancestors were Irish and 'were really looked down upon.' He called immigration 'a lovely story of America ' and said Africans in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin, are 'incredible citizens'. Graham, Durbin said, stood up and "made a direct comment on what the president said", telling the president his own family story.
