Trump reportedly described the homelands of migrants arriving in the USA as "sh*tholes" while speaking at the White House on Thursday.

The African Union Mission to Washington says United States president Donald Trump, who called Haiti and Africa "shithole" countries, should withdraw the remarks, which dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity.

Hillary Clinton posted a response Friday to President Trump's "shithole countries" remark from an Oval Office meeting a day earlier.

President Trump on Sunday night repeated his claim that he is "the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

"No. I'm not a racist", he replied. "Then the influencer said you also need to call the telephone company, tie up the lines and call the telephone company talking about 'I need to have my worldwide phone plan include S-hole'".

Senator Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Mr Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.

"I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal", Trump said.

Trump also said in the meeting that he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead. On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that his "language was tough" but "this was not the language used". The senators are working to codify the protections in DACA.

"Trump took particular issue with the characterization of his comments on Haiti. Thought they said he was so impressed with us just last September?". I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

"To squander that goodwill certainly means many difficulties in terms of pursuing trade, in terms of doing business comfortably, in terms of counter terrorism, security cooperation", Lewis said. But in Chicago the criticism of the president's reported remarks was harsh, partially because of the city's history and its founder, Haitian immigrant Jean Baptiste Dusable.

"The first thing we should reject is someone looking for a handout when they come here", Kang said.

We have heard from conservatives who defend Mr. Trump and defend this remark. and saying that, well, these countries are shitholes, and that's why people are trying to get out of them. "I would tell him before he talks, he needs to think before he says something", he said. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

The U.S President is quoted as expressing frustration over the "influx" of immigrants from these countries to the United States.
