According to The Washington Post's sources briefed on the meeting, President Trump grew "frustrated" with lawmakers during the course of the meeting saw said lawmakers discussing Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal.

"We should have more people from places like Norway". "He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly", he said.

Several Pennsylvania Republicans are criticizing President Donald Trump this morning after reports that he questioned why the US should accept immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa.

He tweeted, "I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level".

As soon as Trump's comments were reported, people took the "president" to task.

Trump also said the US should accept more immigrants from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with this week.

Trump denied using the vulgar language in a Friday morning tweet. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" the president tweeted Friday.

Trump has called himself the "least racist person that you've ever met" and has spoken positively about Haitians in public. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he said. Last spring, he combined two major stories ― a mistreated United passenger and Trump's decision to fire former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey ― in one much-discussed illustration.

Trump is quoted to have said: "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"

On CNN, Blow went on to note that Trump's comments can not be divorced from the policies he enacts as president.

Speaking to ABC News, one White House official described the comments as a "gaffe" adding that "It may not have been the best way to convey his position".
