Almost a year into Trump's presidency, members of Congress are still struggling to relate to the unorthodox Trump and his spontaneous, often crude remarks.

The statement, issued late Friday after the African ambassadors held an emergency meeting, comes amid an global outcry over Trump reportedly saying he'd rather have more immigrants from Norway and fewer from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa.

The government of Botswana asked the USA government to clarify if Botswana was regarded as a "shithole country" and called his comments "irresponsible, reprehensible and racist".

Though the White House flatly denied the report, given Trump's other colorful language to describe non-white foreigners, it certainly seems credible.

The African Union said Trump's statement "flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice, " the Associated Press reported. He said these hateful things and he said them repeatedly.

Yesterday, no White House spokesperson confirmed or deny the allegations.

Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, called the White House to tell Trump that a bipartisan group of senators had struck a deal to put Dreamers on a path to citizenship, beef up border security and take other steps to change immigration laws.

"His comments solidified his position that he doesn't want any Haitians here in the country", Adams said.

"Generally, I prefer for network anchors to pose questions, rather than answer them", former CNN correspondent Frank Sesno said of cable news coverage. The largest groups El Salvador and the second is Honduran and the third is Haitians and when I mentioned that fact to him, he said, "Haitians, do we need more Haitians?"

Trump insisted he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Why should we accept any less from the President of the United States of America? "Made up by Dems". "I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States". He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.

"This is the president of the United States, the leader of the free world, making these racist statements".

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration, in which U.S. green-card holders can sponsor other family members for permanent residence in the country.
