President Trump's remarks about African countries and Haiti drew condemnation from a group of African ambassadors to the United Nations who called them "outrageous, racist and xenophobic" and demanded a retraction and apology.

Botswana's government was the first on the continent to condemn Trump's statements, referring to them as "highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist".

"I want to take a moment to talk about Haiti, one of the places the President of the United States called a "sh**hole country", Mr Cooper started his speech live on air.

Trump has since been branded a shocking and shameful racist after it was credibly reported he had described African nations, as well as Haiti and El Salvador as "shitholes" and questioned why so many of their citizens had ever been permitted to enter America.

Earlier, the 55-nation African Union condemned the remarks, while Botswana and Senegal hauled in the United States ambassador to complain.

On Saturday morning, Trump took to Twitter to slam the Democrats over the controversy: "The Democrats are all talk and no action". His crusade against the "Central Park Five" included calling for the death penalty.

Lafortune listed off turning points in early American history and explained how Haitians played a helping role in each of them.

"It's not a shock to anyone anymore", said Robillard, 49, who was born in Haiti but moved to South Florida in 2000.

After an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks, the group said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the U.S. administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color". Trump did not explain how that fits with his administration's decision to end temporary legal status for almost 60,000 Haitian immigrants.

I planned to write notes to friends and family members who were rescued from the rubble by their neighbors. That's what this is really about. "Do we need more Haitians?'" Durbin recounted, NBC News reported.

Bernice King, who serves as chief executive officer of The King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, said the lesson of nonviolence is to focus on defeating injustice, not individuals. "But it kind of didn't even surprise me", Antwi, who spent 12 months in Afghanistan while serving in the U.S. Army, told The News. He spoke to him about the importance of voting rights - only to see Trump establish a now-defunct commission to investigate voter fraud, which some saw as a move to intimidate minority voters. The president, he said, "screws things up when he gets in the middle of the process". He assaults women, has said racist things from the beginning, but now he has to apologize?

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., also a Cuban-American, said Trump's language, "should not be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn't be heard in the White House". "It doesn't matter where you come from, you are accepted, here not so much". "The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", White House doctor Ronny Jackson said in a statement.

Former Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe tweeted, "SHAME ON TRUMP!"
