Donald Trump denies calling Haiti a 'sh**hole'

Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that "you can not dismiss entire countries and continents as 'shitholes'".

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement issued after The Washington Post published its report. And for all of you who have over the last few years uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated, ignorant response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior racist - you know what you can do?

Trump allegedly said: 'Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?' during a meeting yesterday.

Trump then suggested the United States should bring in more people from countries like Norway, the report said. He also said of immigrants from Haiti, "take them out", meaning, take them out of the immigration bill. The largest is El Salvadoran, the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian and when I mentioned that fact to him he said "Haitians?"

U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey said Trump's reported language referred to those countries "disparagingly", and that the president should retract his statements. "Those many people are not doing us right", he said and called for ending the visa lottery system.

The testimony was not classified, so there was nothing stopping her from doing what the Republican chair of the committee, Sen. Fusion GPS has told the Washington Post that it "had no prior knowledge" of that meeting and denied any involvement.

'To no surprise the President started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" he tweeted. Trump and Congress are looking at a deal to help "Dreamers", immigrants protected under the DACA program. He also suggested his future meetings with lawmakers be recorded.

By 7:45 a.m., the president took to his favorite platform, Twitter, to address his reported comment.

He is being criticized by both Democrats and Republicans for what he said.

Trump's remarks came after he reportedly called African and other nations "shithole" countries, triggering outrage from the UN and the African Union.

Another Republican Representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who was born in Cuba and whose south Florida district includes many Haitian immigrants, said: "Language like that shouldn't be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn't be heard in the White House".
