"That's all I'm gonna tell you".

"People briefed on the Oval Office conversation on immigration reform Thursday said Trump questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and what he called 'shithole countries" in Africa.

'We need comprehensive immigration reform that reflects our values as a country and recognizes our economic needs.

Leanne Manas, a news anchor for the South African Broadcasting Corporation, tweeted Friday morning, "Good morning from the greatest most lovely "s-thole country" in the world!"

Cohan said the president's frequent faux pas are starting to remind her of the various mass murders and school shootings that we've seen over the years where with each one we thought well, this has to be the one that changes things and mobilizes us. "I am trying not to cry", Larrieux said.

Tweeted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive".

Trump's comments were shocking and shameful and I'm sorry, but there's no other word one can use but racist, said a spokesman for the United Nations human rights office, Rupert Colville. "What's going on?" she said.

The Central American nation's Foreign Ministry says in a statement that "El Salvador demands respect for its courageous and dignified people".

President Trump made the remark Thursday in a meeting with lawmakers on immigration. Some countries, such as Botswana, demanding the president apologize for his remark.

In a flurry of tweets yesterday, Mr Trump defended his immigration stance while claiming the reports about his meeting with senators were inaccurate.

"We, along with the President, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades", they added.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the US after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the discussion.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a close Trump ally, called on the president to explain his words. Many of these advisers who were part of his campaign have stuck by the president during some of his most controversial moments, including when the Access Hollywood tapes were published before the election.

Ever since Trump's comments on the Access Hollywood tape became public in October 2016, his supporters have dismissed his remarks as merely vulgar, an unvarnished version of how other people talk every day. But he attracts a disproportionate share of racists to support him. The Wall Street Journal interview was also considered a potential opportunity for Trump to shape his own message. We're better than this, ' Biden tweeted Friday morning.

Senator Durbin said that after yesterday's meeting any hope for a deal "died".
"There's a reason why they all want to come here - these places are shitholes. Turns out they're just like us", Cox said in a Tweet that included pictures of his son with a smiling family.
