She said Trump's alleged comments were "completely unacceptable", telling WPLG-TV in Miami, "If that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it".

During a meeting on Thursday with legislators about a proposed bipartisan deal on immigration, Mr Trump reportedly said: "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"

"President Trump's comments are racist and a disgrace", said Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer, the second-ranking Democrat in the House. Trump has showed, time and time again, that the people who voted for him are the only people he's interested in appealing to and whether Trump gets reelected in 2020 or not, it will likely take years, if not decades, to fix the damage he has made in regards to race relations.

Aubry was speaking outside the remains of Haiti's National Palace, where President Jovenel Moise on Friday laid the first stone to rebuild the emblematic building that collapsed in the quake.

Jean, a refugee from Haiti who came to Canada in 1968 and was raised in Thetford Mines, Que., also noted that Friday was the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that struck her native country, one of 57 member French-language countries - many from Africa - that form La Francophonie. But, he added, "I also understand the president is not a career politician, and may say things that aren't politically incorrect".

Altidor said Foreign Affairs Minister Antonio Rodrigue told him the USA chargé d'affaires in Haiti had been summoned to provide an explanation about the reported comments. The White House has not denied the language, nor have the several Republican lawmakers in the meeting.

Trump used the words "shithole countries" to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African countries in response to lawmakers suggested they restore protections for immigrants from there, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

The White House did not deny his remark but issued a statement saying Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".

Haiti's government summoned charge d'affairs Robin Diallo, the top U.S. diplomat in the country, to respond. He went on to say that he had "a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Trump slams immigrants from 's***hole' Haiti, African countries
The Dems will threaten 'shutdown, ' but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. The administration announced earlier this week that it was removing the protection for El Salvador.


"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough", he tweeted, "but this was not the language used".

"We're going to have - more than a signal - we're going to have a very clear message this is something he'd support, that he'd sign", Cornyn said.

Many US media outlets reported the comments on Thursday, quoting witnesses or people briefed on the meeting.

The president specifically criticized the Temporary Protected Status the United States has given to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and some African countries.

Haitian governments were for many years militaristic, which some trace to a tradition of resisting French attacks after independence. "He's president of the United States".

Loans from French banks to cover indemnity payments to Paris for independence were only paid off in 1947. "Do we need more Haitians?'" "Haiti has long history with the United States, dating back to the American Revolutionary War, (during which) 500 heroic Haitians volunteered to fight alongside the American troops for America's independence".

"President Barack Obama was born in the United States".

Trump blasted the proposal as "a big step backwards" and said it didn't provide enough funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, a key campaign promise Trump made in 2016. He tweets that it would force the U.S.

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, protecting them from deportation following the 2010 natural disaster, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month.
