Murkowski calls Trump's comment on Haiti, El Salvador, African countries 'offensive'

The comments come a day after Trump, in an Oval Office meeting about immigration, referred to a series of nations as "shithole countries" and questioned why the United States was not welcoming more people from Norway as opposed to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made".

The president's remarks angered several countries, prompting them to issue strongly-worded statements condemning his comment.

The US president has come under attack after he was reported to have called some nations "shitholes" in a White House remark. In an Oval Office meeting about a bipartisan immigration on Thursday, the president allegedly grew frustrated with lawmakers when discussing immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

Haitians on Friday pushed back at US President Donald Trump's reported description of the Caribbean country as a "sh*thole", instead celebrating a history of slave revolution and resilience on the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake. Never said 'take 'em out.' Made up by Dems. Someone else in the room responded: “Because if you do, it will be obvious why.

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.

America has the potential to take people from "shithole" countries and turn them into great Americans. "Probably should record future meeting - unfortunately no trust".

During a Thursday meeting on immigration with a bipartisan group of lawmakers, Trump criticized protections the United States has given to immigrants from various underdeveloped countries.

"We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically", they said. As for Africa, he asked why more people from "s--hole countries" should be allowed into the US, sources said to The AP. The newspaper also repeated the claim first reported in a New York Times story in December that Trump had said once Nigerians immigrants had seen America, they would never "go back to their huts". Though the White House flatly denied the report, given Trump's other colorful language to describe non-white foreigners, it certainly seems credible. "He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Mr Durbin said. April Ryan, Urban Radio Networks reporter and CNN contributor, said.

"We all came to this country, we all made it great", said Pascale Millien-Faustin, of the Haitian Women Association of CT.
