Trump's 's---hole' comments an assault, says Haiti's ambassador

A backlash to his latest remarks was swift.

According to Alcindor, Ambassador Paul Altidor also said that his country's embassy in DC has heard from "many U.S. citizens" of Haitian ancestry who are demanding an apology, and has formally summoned a USA official to explain Trump's comments.

Apparently baffled by negative reactions to Trump's comment, Carlson wondered why "everyone in Washington, New York, and [Los Angeles] considered" Trump's comment a "major, major event".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., called the comments "beneath the dignity of the presidency" and said Trump's desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway was "an effort to set this country back generations by promoting a homogenous, white society".

Trump said that the United States should accept more immigrants from countries like Norway, the reports said.

One White House official expressed surprise to CNN's Jim Acosta that the President would make such a remark in a meeting with lawmakers, given that it was likely to get out.

Another source familiar with the meeting said Trump was questioning why the United States should take in unskilled laborers from the countries under discussion and should instead welcome immigrants from nations that can offer skilled workers.

Another twitteratti Matthew Miller said, "Just imagine how often Trump says racist things and there aren't Democratic Senators in the room to leak it out".

White House spokesman Raj Shah did not deny that Trump made the remark, which drew criticism from Democrats and Republicans in Congress.

"He will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway". Durbin was going through a list of TPS countries that would be covered. Aides say Trump seemed interested in a deal earlier Thursday but had lost that interest by the time of the meeting.

Trump insulted the entire continent of Africa in his comments as well, leading to fierce reaction on Twitter.

Mia Love, whose family came from Haiti, called the president's comments "unkind, divisive [and] elitist".

Trump's remarks were remarkable even by the standards of a president who has been accused of racism by his foes and who has routinely smashed through public decorum that his modern predecessors have generally embraced. The White House vigorously denied the claims in the story at the time.

Three Republican and three Democratic senators have been working for months on a plan to protect people who arrived in the U.S.as children, many illegally. It means Salvadoreans living in the USA for last three decades have until next year to leave, seek lawful residency or face possible deportation.

The nation suffered a devastating natural disaster in 2010 causing widespread death and destruction and was promised £1.15 billion in aid assistance from the US. He said Nigerians live in huts.

Cornyn said the real work for a bipartisan immigration deal will be achieved by a group of four leading lawmakers - the No. 2 Republicans and Democrats in both the House and Senate.
