Here's What Trump Had to Say About His 'Sh*thole Countries' Comment

Donald Trump has been accused of lying about referring to Caribbean, Central American and African nations as "shithole countries" amid a furious backlash over his reported comments during an immigration meeting.

Today as Trump signed a proclamation at the White House honoring Martin Luther King Jr.

Mr Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?"

Johnson rejected Trump's claim in a 2015 CNN interview in which the President said he was "the least racist person", declaring that "he's a racist both in his actions and his words".

But Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who was reportedly at the meeting said the USA president used "shitholes" in the context of African countries.

Though Graham did not directly confirm Trump's remarks, his statement noting that he stood up to the President differs from a statement issued by other Republicans in the room.

Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Former VP Joe Biden also had choice words about Trump's language, tweeting, "It's not what a president should believe". I use those words advisedly, I understand how powerful they are. "I have not read one of them that is inaccurate", Durbin said during a Friday news conference. "Because you might learn that people from some of those 'shithole countries" were slaves who were brought by force to help build this country".

"Given the historical reality of how African Americans arrived in the United States as slaves, and the United States being the biggest example of how a nation has been built by migration - for a statement like that to come is particularly upsetting", said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki.

Reports show that Trump suggested that we should attract more people from countries like Norway.

"Donald Trump dog-whistled his way into the White House, running a campaign based on hate, bigotry, and fear", she wrote.

Hours later, Trump said on Twitter Friday morning that, "the language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Tucker Carlson said President Trump's controversial comment about the USA accepting immigrants from "s***hole countries" is forcing a conversation that elected leaders don't want to have. And for all of you who over the last few years who have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated, ignorant, response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racist"?

UN Spokesman Rupert Colville said Trump's comments, if confirmed, were "shocking and shameful" and opened the door to "humanity's worst side and go against universal values".
